The Touching Moment Chadwick Boseman Gave His MTV Award To Waffle House Hero

Posted On : 06/19/2018

Black Panther superstar Chadwick Boseman is a true gent.

The actor decided to give his award for playing a superhero to a real life hero. The 40-year-old gave his MTV Movie & TV Award to James Shaw Jr.

Shaw is responsible for stopping a gunman in a deadly shooting at a Waffle House in Tennessee in April that killed four people.

‘A Real Life Hero’

“Receiving an award for playing a superhero is amazing, but it’s even greater to acknowledge the heroes that we have in real life,” Boseman said.

“So I just want to acknowledge somebody that’s here today. James Shaw Jr. Where are you? Stand. If you don’t know James Shaw Jr., he fought off a gunman in Antioch, Tennessee at a Waffle House. He saved lives. Come on up here.”

Shaw Created A Go Fund Me For The Victims

Shaw humbly took the stage as Boseman handed him the golden popcorn award and said, “This is gonna live at your house.”

Shaw was grazed by a bullet while grappling with the gunman and burned his right hand grabbing the barrel of the weapon.

The brave man also created a GoFundMe page to assist the victims of the shooting.
