While some posts were rather brief, like “Mandalorian” star Pascal’s simple-but-heartfelt “words fail” with a heartbroken emoji and a photo of Weathers on his Instagram, others had more to say, including Sandler, who took to his Instagram to say:

“A true great man. Great dad. Great actor. Great athlete. So much fun to be around always. Smart as hell. Loyal as hell. Funny as hell. Loved his sons more than anything. What a guy!! Everyone loved him. My wife and I had the best times with him every time we saw him. Love to his entire family and Carl will always be known as a true legend.”

Weathers played fictional former pro golfer Chubbs Peterson in “Happy Gilmore,” showing that he had comedy chops as well as acting and athletic skills. Other comedians had kind words for the late actor, like Dane Cook, who said that a moment in “Rocky” with Weathers changed his life, and “Saturday Night Live” alum Leslie Jones, who said, “Say it ain’t so!! Apollo Creed!! RIP TO MR. Carl Weathers!” with a crying emoji, alongside a photo of Weathers in “Predator.”
