Letitia Wright emerged as one of the more popular actresses of her era after a star-making turn in Marvel’s Black Panther film as Shuri. Now, Wright is currently on the receiving end of criticism after questioning the upcoming COVID-19 vaccine.
Wright, 27, shared a video via a now-deleted tweet of a person who appeared to be an avowed anti-vaxxer. In record time, Wright found herself on the defensive end with some pointing out the video she shared espoused some dangerous and haphazard directives.
In a tweet that still exists as of now, Wright asked, “if you don’t conform to popular opinions. but ask questions and think for yourself….you get cancelled.”
The tweet garnered a considerable reaction from many who said that Wright’s concerns could’ve been allayed if she read the opinions of medical professionals and the like. After some time passed, Wright returned to Twitter with an apology of sorts.
“[M]y 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. Nothing else,” Wright wrote, which also has been met with impassioned responses.
