Letitia Wright reportedly pushed anti-vaccination views on the set of “Black Panther 2” amid the ever-present Coronavirus pandemic.
The Guyanese-born British actress, 27, made her on-set comments against getting jabbed while the Marvel film was being shot in Atlanta, a source told The Hollywood Reporter.
Wright’s comments during the filming were in addition to anti-vax postings she made last year on social media, which according to the Reporter led her staff to quit.
“[Wright] quietly parted ways with her entire U.S. team of representatives in the wake of a backlash over posting a controversial anti-vaccine video in December,” the website reported.
Her rep did not immediately respond to our request for comment.
As Page Six previously reported, the actress deactivated her Twitter and Instagram accounts after facing backlash for sharing a video that preached skepticism about the vaccines.
At first, she defended her stance on the matter, writing at the time to her critics, “if you don’t conform to popular opinions. but ask questions and think for yourself….you get cancelled [laugh emoji].”
But when Wright continued to be called out for sharing the video, she claimed that she was just trying to share more information.
“my intention was not to hurt anyone, my ONLY intention of posting the video was it raised my concerns with what the vaccine contains and what we are putting in our bodies,” she wrote. “Nothing else.”
At the time, her “Avengers: Endgame” co-star Don Cheadle spoke out on the matter, saying that he wouldn’t “defend” Wright for sharing the video but added that he “still won’t throw her away over it.”
Despite her original defense on the matter, her social media accounts have yet to be restored.
