During a segment in the Golden Globes, several kids were asked by TikTok star La'Ron Hines who Chadwick Boseman is, and fans on Twitter were touched by their sweet responses.

Hines was doing a skit where he asked children various questions about the Golden Globes, awards shows, and various TV shows.

Their answers, in general, brought a lot of laughter, with one kid telling Hines that celebrities sit on the couch and brush their teeth during awards shows.

Hines then asked the kids who Chadwick Boseman is, and the laughter was quickly replaced with a lot of emotion from fans watching the show.

All of the kids immediately knew exactly who Boseman was, telling Hines that he was the Marvel superhero Black Panther.

One kid told Hines that Boseman is "the good guy."

One user tweeted: "Made my heart burst that they all knew his name. Shows us his legacy will live on."

Another fan said that they went through "so many emotions so quickly," and noted that every one of these young kids recognizing Boseman's name "shows the impact and importance of [representation]."

And another user wrote that "the next generation knows what's important."

And everyone found it adorable that the kids didn't know a single thing about every other question they were asked, but did know who Boseman was.

Boseman, who died of cancer in August 2020, won the award for best actor in a motion picture, drama, for his Netflix movie "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom."

Boseman's wife, Taylor Simone Ledward, accepted the award on his behalf and gave an emotional speech that moved Boseman's "Ma Rainey" costar, Viola Davis, to tears.
