“As we close this chapter, we ask that in your remembrance of him, you remember to love your neighbor as yourself, because that is what Coronji did for his entire community.”

Halle Berry donated to his GoFundMe page.

In the movie, Berry was upset for her son for being overweight and would be abusive to him.

“It was a lot harder than even the love scene because Coronji was really 10 [years old] and obese,” she said according to People.




Berry continued, “I worried that I would somehow damage him emotionally, not just in doing the scene, but down the road. So I talked to him a lot and hugged and kissed him a lot. He said, ‘You don’t have to worry about what you say; it can’t be as bad as how they treat me at school.'”
