Colon cancer. Apparently he was diagnosed about FOUR YEARS AGO! He made all these movies, including one of the most culturally significant milestones in Black Panther, all while dealing with colon cancer!

Not that it's a competition, but I feel this one more than Kobe Bryant (was that also this year? Jesus...) Probably because I'm more a movie nerd and a comic nerd than a basketball nerd. But also probably hits close to home because my dad has prostate cancer and is gonna die soon from that. So it's just like...a lot.

What a horrible year.

Yeah this was really unexpected. I also had no idea he was that old. I would have guessed he was in his late 20s or 30s at most.

Really sad. We wrapped up the Marvel movies sometime earlier this year, so that's where I'm most familiar with his work.

I hope his family is doing well.

Very sad. It took my brain a couple of seconds to recognize who he was when my brother told me he died as I only associate him with T'challa. Very sad. I wonder if the higher ups in Disney/ Marvel knew about his condition. Crazy to think it was never leaked.


Bryant

shit that was this year too. What the fuck 2020.

Congrats on making this guy's death about you. But sorry about your dad. Black Panther was anti-white propaganda, but it's always sad when someone that young dies in such a random and inescapable way.

This was rather unpleasant to wake up to. Not to mention that cancer is a scary thing whether you have it or someone you love does. I hope you are holding up well in the face of it.


@Marvalo

Your posts make for more effective anti-white propaganda than Boseman's movies ever will.

Uh Black Panther took out the anti-white propaganda black supremacy character in the movie in favor of working hand in hand with the out side world to attempt to address the prospective problems the world would be facing.

Looks like he was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016. He went vegetarian in 2018.

It's not hard to see the connection. Most likely, he stopped eating meat due to his diagnosis, with meat being one of the obvious causes for colon cancer.

It's just so sad. When someone gets cancer everyone is up in arms, saying "FUCK CANCER!"

They're willing to ostracize (rightfully so) tobacco for its rile in lung, esophageal, throat cancer. But no one says a word against the obvious connection between eating meat and cancer. Why the hypocrisy?
