'Black Panther' Star Chadwick Boseman is Tired of Doing Wakanda Salute All The Time

Updated On 16 May, 2018 Published On

Following the Black Panther premiere in February, the Wakanda salute by Chadwick Boseman immediately became famous in the cultural lexicon. Everywhere the 40-year-old actor goes, he is asked to perform it and he sure does it but now it seems he is sick and tired of doing it.

In the Fantasy/Science fiction film movie, crossing arms over the chest and announcing "Wakanda forever!", Wakanda salute is done. It's certainly a memorable action to expresses solidarity.

Chadwick, who plays T'Challa in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, does the salute at seemingly every event, including the Avengers: Infinity Wars premiere. Additionally, during his commencement speech at Howard University, Chadwick also adapted to "Howard forever".

While appearing on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! - hosted by Jimmy Kimmel - the actor said,

If I don't want to do it, I have to not leave the house, pretty much. I've been chased in cars.

Look at him at each event, though, Chadwick looks increasingly sick and tired of doing Wakanda salute and it's definitely a hard gig to rip a superhero in real life.

In fact, his exhaustion became a meme and people have been trolling him from all over the world.

Check out some of those.

On the other hand, Michael B. Jordan, who plays Erik Killmonger in the movie, the 31-year-old doesn't even try.


While in a n interview. when a journalist saluted him, he declined to return it with his own and said, "I ain't from Wakanda".

The video clip certainly went viral.
