After posting a photo of his son honoring Black Panther, user King Westbrook added this: "Kian wanted to thank everyone from the bottom of his heart for all the loving and kind words given to him for this post. When he found out about Chadwicks passing, he was heart broken. But he knows death is a part for being human, and wanted to cope with losing his hero this way."
A user Grafangel1RONIN replied to one of these photos by saying this: "Our hearts are broken in so many ways & yet when I see this picture I see a future king or president, leader, or hero.
