Rogan was on SiriusXM’s “Unlocking the Cage with Jimmy Smith” when the conversation shifted to the death of Chadwick Boseman.
Rogan mentioned that it was horrible that “a**holes” live long while good people don’t.
He said: “Sucks so hard that some a-holes live forever and some really cool people die young.”
He added: “I just looked at the news and said, ‘F*ck!!!!'”
“Just instantly, ‘F*ck’. That guy was cool.”
He added during the interview: “He was such a brilliant guy.”
Rogan says he understands the impact the movie “Black Panther” had on the Black community and credits Boseman for playing the lead role to perfection.
He said: “He was so perfect in the role – as a human being outside of the movie, he was so perfect.”
Rogan could barely contain his emotion after he learned Boseman passed away Friday, August 28 after a secret four-year battle with colon cancer.
“It also speaks to his character that he suffered in silence like that and he didn’t make a big deal of the fact he was trying to get through cancer. It’s a bummer man,” he said.
