And naturally, his Black Panther co-star and friend Michael B. Jordan could not have missed to opportunity to honor him!
Jordan took to his platform to post a pic of the two of them hugging and in the caption, he wrote a very touching message.
‘Continue watching over us King. Happy Birthday . Miss you,’ the caption reads.
Another one of his Black Panther co-stars, Lupita Nyong’o, paid tribute to Boseman as well.
The actress posted a photo featuring the two looking at each other and smiling while dressed to the nines at an event.
Her caption reads: ‘Deeply loved, sorely missed. #ChadwickBoseman.’
Viola Davis, who starred alongside the late actor in the posthumously released movie Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom posted a gif of Boseman wearing a tuxedo and being showered in gold confetti at a gala.
‘Happy birthday in Heaven, Chadwick! You are still so alive to me!! I love you 💛👑’ she wrote.
These are, of course, just a few of the many tributes and bitter-sweet messages both A-listers and fans flooded social media with on Chadwick Boseman’s birthday. The number of posts about it proves just how loved he was and how missed he is!
