‘Black Panther’ star Chadwick Boseman sparks concern with dramatic weight loss
Chadwick Boseman sparked concern among fans when he posted a video of himself on Instagram and unwittingly revealed his notable weight loss.
The “Black Panther” star took to the social medium Wednesday to announce the launch of “Operation 42,” a donation of $4.2 million in personal protective equipment to hospitals that service the African-American communities hit the hardest by the coronavirus pandemic. (Boseman starred as Robinson in the 2013 film “42.”). However, fans focused more on his dramatically thin frame instead of his message.
“I hope your okay, your appearance has changed,” one follower 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,” wrote another.
It’s unclear if Boseman, 42, has lost the weight for an upcoming role. He’s slated to appear in the TV series “The Black Child,” out in 2020, and “Black Panther II,” which is set for a 2022 release.
Boseman’s rep didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
