Actress and television host Sophie Lichaba née Ndaba has spoken out against people body shamming late US actor Chadwick Boseman.
The “Black Panther” star who passed away after a four year battle with colon cancer, was recently ridiculed after posting a video commemorating Jackie Robinson’s Day.
In the video clip that was posted on his Instagram page, slim-looking Boseman was seen hailing his hero Robinson.
While some expressed their concern for the star’s drastic weight loss, many mocked him.
Sophie says she can relate to Boseman’s pain of being ridiculed.
The former “Generations” actress has been a victim of a Twitter death and being mocked for her weight loss.
Lichaba, who lost her parents to diabetes, said she was an ambassador for people living with diabetes.
