The show followed the two’s often unique friendship. When the news broke Rob Dyrdek shared his feelings of losing cohort and brother. “My heart is broken,” Rob captioned the Instagram photograph with the late MTV star, above. “I don’t want to write this post. I don’t want to believe that this is the reality. I am so thankful for you. We truly were brothers that lived an unexpected unforgettable adventure. I just can’t fathom that it would end so suddenly. You will forever be in my heart.”

A host of the Ridiculousness shared a series of images of his former bodyguard through the many years of their friendship. He even included a lovely picture of Big and Rob’s son Kodah with the caption; “so thankful for this moment”. The Ridiculousness is one of thousand, hell millions who’ve shared the love and kindness. Chanel West Coast used Instagram to honour her father.

“RIP @bigblack1972. My heart is crushed hearing this news. I’ll never forget all the times you made me laugh. So many epic memories with you. You put smiles on a lot of people’s faces and you will be missed dearly by SO many. My prayers go out to your family and loved ones. Keep them laughing up in heaven…”

Even Big’s wife took to social media to express her emotional pain on the internet; “He was a great father. That was the best thing about him,” she recalled. “He worked his a– off. Nothing was handed to him.” Big leaves behind a life full of love and kindness where a lot of people will continue to miss him. An official cause of death has not yet been revealed.
