*Earlier we posted info about the ocean side memorial in Malibu for Chadwick Boseman this past weekend that was attended by his wife and his “Black Panther” co-stars.

Now, Lupita Nyong’o shared a personal moving tribute to her friend Chadwick Boseman, who died on Aug. 28 at the age of 43 from colon cancer.

Nyong’o posted a photo of her and Boseman laughing, with the caption “For the beloved Chadwick Boseman. #TakeYourTimeButDontWasteYourTime.”

It’s the first time she’s spoken publicly about Boseman’s unexpected death.

“I write these words from a place of hopelessness, to honor a man who had great hope. I am struggling to think and speak about my friend, Chadwick Boseman, in the past tense. It doesn’t make sense. The news of his passing is a punch to my gut every morning,” she wrote. “I am aware that we are all mortal, but you come across some people in life that possess an immortal energy, that seem like they have existed before, that are exactly where they are supposed to always be — here! … that seem ageless … Chadwick was one of those people.”

*During an NBA playoffs pregame show on TNT Thursday, NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley mocked calls to defund the police, asking, “Who are black people supposed to call? Ghostbusters?”

While speaking on the subject, Barkley explained, “We have to really be careful. I hear these fools on TV talking about ‘defund the police’ and things like that. We need police reform, prison reform, and things like that. Because you know who ain’t going to defund the cops? White neighborhoods and rich neighborhoods.”

”So, that notion, they keep saying that,” Barkley added. “I’m like, wait a minute, who are black people supposed to call? Ghostbusters?” In addition to that comment, Barkley also cautioned not to compare Breonna Taylor’s death with other high-profile police killings including the death of George Floyd, with Barkley pointing out that Taylor’s boyfriend ”shot at police” first.
