‘Black Panther’ Star Letitia Wright Tweets Controversial vaccine video and Faces Public Backlash

Letitia Wright, 27, faces a backlash after she posted a video that questions whether the COVID-19 vaccine should be taken when it becomes available. 

Wright shared the video on her Twitter account Thursday along with a praying hands emoji. In the video, from the YouTube channel “On The Table,” the host says he doesn’t know if he’s going to take the vaccine.

Wright has since deleted the post which contained the anti-vaccine video, and tweeted “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. Nothing else.”

Wright’s co-star in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Don Cheadle, said the “On the Table” video was “hot garbage”. The actor disagrees with the video content, but said he would not “throw her away” for posted it.

Cheadle wrote “Jesus. Just scrolled through. Hot garbage. Every time I stopped and listened, he and everything he said sounded crazy and [fucked] up,” “I would never defend anybody posting this. But i still won’t throw her away over it. The rest i’ll take off twitter.”
