The announcement of his death provoked a wave of tributes and sadness of rare intensity on social networks. So much so that the last tweet published on Chadwick Boseman’s account, formalizing the death of the actor, has become the most liked of all time.
The social network itself announced it on the company’s official account: “Most liked Tweet of all time. A tribute to the height of a King. #WakandaForever. Twitter thus refers to the most significant role of Chadwick Boseman, namely King T’Challa in the Marvel universe, better known as Black Panther. This August 30, the post has more than 6.4 million likes.
To mark the occasion, and to help make visible the Internet users who wished to organize evenings of viewing of the film, the social network also brought out its Black Panther emoji. A small contribution but which did not go unnoticed.
As a reminder, Chadwick Boseman passed away on August 28 in the United States after having fought for four years against colon cancer. He had shot several films during his illness, without making it official. A courage that forced the admiration of his peers and the public.
