LONDON — Hollywood actor Letitia Wright has triggered a wave of criticism from fans and followers after sharing anti-vaccination propaganda.
Among those calling her out was "Avengers: Endgame" co-star Don Cheadle, who on Friday labelled the video "hot garbage," adding that he would "never defend anybody posting this."
Wright, who has not responded to NBC News' request for comment, said she was not against taking a vaccine but simply wanted to ask questions.
"I'm just concerned about what's in it that's all," she initially wrote on Twitter, interacting with fans.
Facing a barrage of comments, the Guyanese-born star defended herself on Friday, tweeting: "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."...
Wright, who starred alongside the late Chadwick Boseman in the hit 2018 "Black Panther" movie, on Thursday posted a video on Twitter that makes unsubstantiated claims about coronavirus vaccines. She was swiftly rebuked for being "irresponsible" and "reckless."
