‘Black Panther’ Star Letitia Wright Deletes Her Social Media Accounts After Being Criticized About Anti-Vaccine Tweets

Letitia Wright, best known for portraying ‘Shuri‘ in the film ‘Black Panther,’ seems that regret sharing an anti-vaccine post through Twitter.

As known, on December 3, the young actor retweeted a video full of anti-Covid-19 vaccine belief, and hate for trans people, by adding a prayer hands emoji. In the video, the host of the YouTube program, ‘On the Table,’ Tom Arayomi says vaccines are “always been a little bit of a skeptic,” and he continues with a highly transphobic monologue.

Whereupon, Wright was criticized by a great number of people for spreading misinformation regarding a medical issue, and the video was deleted for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines. After all these backlashes, instead of issuing an apology, the actor wrote that she was misunderstood. She wrote on Twitter:

“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 also defended herself by saying that the people who do not conform to popular opinions, think, and ask questions, always are canceled. She added it is just thinking for herself, however, co-writer of ‘Black Panther’ comic series, Roxane Gay replied to her by saying:

“Thinking for yourself doesn’t mean you’re right. And you aren’t cancelled. But damn. Promoting anti-vaccine propaganda and shrouding it in intellectual curiosity is asinine. And dangerous.”

Hours after posting the tweets, she first removed her tweets and then deleted her verified accounts both on Twitter and Instagram.
