Chadwick Boseman‘s final tweet, announcing the world had lost the talented actor, has just become the most liked post in Twitter history: A black and white portrait of Boseman with a statement confirming his death as the result of a four-year battle with colon cancer.

In a public statement, Twitter noted how “fans are coming together on Twitter to celebrate the life of Chadwick Boseman, and the tweet sent from his account last night is now the most-liked tweet of all time on Twitter.” The social media giant confirmed the accolade on its own account, with the caption: “Most liked Tweet ever. A tribute fit for a King. #WakandaForever.” Currently, Boseman’s tweet has close to six million likes, surpassing Barack Obama‘s 2017 tweet (four million likes) that quoted Nelson Mandela. Twitter also brought back the “Black Panther” hashtag emoji in honor of the late actor.

In case you missed it, Marvel stars have been paying tribute to Chadwick Boseman.
