Black Panther Fans Are Worried About Chadwick Boseman's Dramatic Weight Loss

Life has certainly been good for Chadwick Boseman since he became the King of Wakanda, but fans of the Black Panther star are suddenly worried for his health.

Those worries arose after Boseman took to Instagram to post a self-shot video in celebration of what would've been Major League Baseball's "Jackie Robinson Day." With professional baseball suspended indefinitely, Boseman who portrayed Jackie Robinson in the 2013 biopic 42 chose to celebrate the day anyway with a video post that was also meant to commemorate the launch of "Operation 42," a collaboration between Thomas Tull and FIGS, who manufacture surgical scrubs. The noble collaboration made a $4.2 million donation to supply medical gear to African American communities hardest hit by the pandemic.

"They're gonna execute the distribution of those scrubs, those masks, of those isolation gowns to those hospitals that have been impacted the most."

Rather than celebrating Jackie Robinson Day and Operation 42's huge donation alongside the actor, Boseman's fans were instead taken aback by his appearance in the video, noting specifically his dramatic weight loss. The comments section on the video quickly filled up with questions about Boseman's health.

The video itself has since been removed from the main feed of Boseman's Instagram page, but it can still be seen in the IGTV section of his profile. Boseman is indeed not looking like his usual self in the video, with sunken eyes, prominent cheekbones, and a shaggy beard.

Given the current state of the world, fears over Boseman's health are probably a bit more heightened than usual. The good news is that Boseman still seems very healthy in the video, and genuinely excited that "Operation 42" has been such a success. However, the fact that the video in question has been unceremoniously removed from the main portion of Boseman's Instagram feed is still a bit worrisome. That, coupled with the radio silence coming from the actor and his management team, is fueling the fires of concern on all fronts.

Looking at the video, one might be inclined to believe Boseman has probably begun a weight-loss regimen in preparation for a future role. That is, after all, a familiar enough tactic for actors having been utilized by A-listers like Christian Bale, Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and, most recently, Joaquin Phoenix in his Oscar-winning Joker turn.

Still, those actors and their reps have historically been quick to announce the planned weight loss, and tend to do so literally the moment pictures of the sometimes dangerously thin performers begin to surface. With no announcement coming from Boseman's camp yet, fans' imaginations are left to run wild, and we all know just how wild those imaginations can be. Keep watching the video to see Black Panther fans are worried about Chadwick Boseman's dramatic weight loss!

Devastating he had to go so early, but he did more in 43 years than most people would do in 500 years


Edit:

Glad to see the vast majority of people understand what I mean. To clarify for the people who dont, Chadwick had an amazing career and was an amazing actor and starred in some of the biggest films in the world. Most people wouldnt achieve this (myself included) even if they lived for 500 years. This analogy is just a testament to how successful he was, and not an attempt to bring less successful people down as some people have wrongly thought.

Such a wonderful person. He was one of the few newer black actors that grabbed my attention in his films. I was truly stunned and and saddened beyond words when the news came. I didn't know it then but he was born the year i graduated high school (76) bicentennial year. He was truly truly special. He'll be greatly missed but not forgotten. WAKANDA FOR LIFE !!

i've seen many people going off about how dangerous it was to keep cancer a secret but I know what it's like. my father had cancer and he kept it from me and my nieces and nephew for two years because he didn't want us to think of him differently. it's been six years and i still can't get over it. I want to say I hope is family is doing okay but I know they're not so I'll say that I hope it doesn't take them as long to heal as it did me because I still haven't.

I’m devastated that the feeling in my gut was correct. You see, my grandmother got cancer just this January. I saw her last in december and I saw her again some time in Late January or February. When I saw her again in the latter dates she was so thin. She sadly passed away in May. When I saw Chadwick, I got Deja Vu but I didn’t wanna jump and believe that conclusion because he was so young. Cancer is such a vile ailment. I hate it. I hope someday a cure is found.

I’m white male in my 60’s and thought this man glowed enlightenment He was evolved. I have two friends both colon cancer survivers and black under 40 and also both very special human beings ( as we all are) when I heard of chadwicks death from something so close to home it really shook me. It should not shock it’s extremely prevalent among black YOUNG males but rarely discussed . Chadwick saw it as personal issue which was his choice and right .
Their was something about him you did not need to be black to feel most know him from black panther but he made other epics ( ie a message from the king ) where he through his talent portrayed a really important message consistently . That message well that’s yours to find . A great loss but a spirit like his does not just fade into the abiss . Awards trophies get dusty his memory will be fresh forever .

Rest in Paradise King!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
