Black Panther star Letitia Wright should probably spend maybe less time online and more time reading the script for Black Panther 2.
The star got in trouble last night on Twitter because of her apparent anti-vaccine stance after she posted a controversial video that didn’t go over well with her fans.
The Twiiterverse went off on the star and dragged her for her very unpopular opinion.
Out of all people who decided to be problematic… Letitia Wright, LETITIA?!? #BlackPanther2 pic.twitter.com/E1dUTdE5aZ

You posted something suggesting that the vaccines were injecting Lucifer, that's a wee bit more than just questioning if it's safe.

Wright tried to explain her position and play it off.
“If you don’t conform to popular opinions, but ask questions and think for yourself….you get cancelled,” she wrote on Twitter.
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.

But Twitterverse wasn’t buying it.
Letitia Wright wasn't skeptical about a vaccine. She went full extremist nut and posted a video full of anti-climate change, transphobia, and anti-vaxxer bullsh!t. Then had the nerve to laugh about it on her timeline and talk about popular opinion??? girl GTFO

BIPOC are dying at the highest rates from #COVIDー19 and @letitiawright is out here promoting anti-vaccine videos.

One of her co-stars Don Cheadle, from the Avengers Endgame, also was not amused.
Cheadle called Wright out on this tweet. He tweeted this:
“Jesus… just scrolled through. hot garbage. “Every time i stopped and listened, he and everything he said sounded crazy and f***** 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. had no idea.”

Although the majority of fans were against her, she did have a few fans who supported her stance and understood where she was coming from, and maybe had she explained herself better and not put out this video that was not only anti-vaccine but transphobic and quite frankly just downright weird, maybe more people would have been more willing to listen to her opinion.
