Letitia Wright has come under fire for questioning the pending COVID-19 vaccine. The "Black Panther" star faced backlash from fans on social media after sharing a since-deleted post with a 69-minute YouTube video disputing the legitimacy of the coronavirus treatment and vaccines in general. Variety noted that the controversial content also contained climate change skepticism and transphobic comments. Following initial criticism and anti-vaxxer accusations, Wright tweeted, "If you don’t conform to popular opinions, but ask questions and think for yourself … you get cancelled." As the outrage continued, the 27-year-old actress doubled down on her point of view as she defended herself in the replies.
