Chadwick Boseman has joined the long list of celebrities who have taken action in helping frontliners amid the coronavirus crisis, but some people think that he might be the one who needs help. The actor has sparked concern over her health after he showed dramatic weight loss in an new Instagram video.
In the Wednesday, April 15 post, the Black Panther depicter in Marvel Cinematic Universe talked about his partnership with Operation 42, an initiative to help hospitals that serve African-American communities during the pandemic, while sporting a blue cap and untrimmed beard. But it was his gaunt and super skinny appearance that drew people’s attention the most, with his fans worrying about his health.
“I hope your okay, your appearance has changed,” a concerned follower reacted. Another had a similar reaction, “Uuuhh Chadwick are you ok???!” Another pleaded, “Somebody please feed him.”
Noticing his major change, a fourth user shared, “I didn’t recognize him at first.” Another fan wrote, “Dude, I’m all in for this, but please reassure your fan base about your health ’cause even I am starting to be kinda worried.” Someone else reacted with a little humor, “U good ? U need some vibranium? We here for u.”
Some others were wondering if his dramatic weight loss is for a movie role. “Are you getting skinnier for a movie ?” a curious person asked. Also showing concern, someone else added, “I’m not liking this weight loss bro. I hope it’s for a movie role.”
His physical appearance aside, Chadwick made use of the post to announce the project that will honor the legacy of Jackie Robinson. “I am hearing stories of desperation from people all over the country, and we know our communities are suffering the most and urgently need help,” he wrote in the caption.
“Celebrating #JackieRobinsonDay with the launch of Thomas Tull’s #Operation42, a donation of 4.2 million dollars in personal protective equipment (PPE) to hospitals that service the African American Communities who have been hit the hardest by the Covid-19 pandemic,” he added. “Thank you, Jackie, for refusing to accept the world as it is, for showing us that we can make a difference.”
