Wakanda Forever and the problem of an anti-vaccine actress

Before starting the vaccination campaign, we knew that another complicated challenge was coming for humanity. It was not only the fact of distributing the vaccines, also to convince people who, for one reason or another, refuse to get the dose. We are currently going through that moment, and not even the entertainment sector has managed to avoid the problem. Disney, and specifically the production of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is the best example.

According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, one of the most trusted sources in the film industry, Disney is having problems with one of the stars of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. We talk about Letitia Wright, who has been playing Shuri in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for several years. Well, it turns out that the actress maintains a position against vaccines. In fact, he has expressed it publicly through his social networks.

The problem for Disney is that Letitia Wright, according to the aforementioned medium, has started promoting his thoughts on the set of filming from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which is located in Atlanta. As if the above were not enough, they indicate that the actress broke off relations with his former representatives after sharing an anti-vaccine video last December.

In this video, some people showed their skepticism about the effectiveness of vaccines against COVID-19. Obviously, a good part of her followers criticized her, especially for the repercussion that the words of such a famous person can have. “If you do not conform to popular opinions and think for yourself … are you canceled?”, Replied the actress to her detractors. Shortly after closed his Twitter account.

What will Disney and the production of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever do?

A curious fact is that no other actor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe came to their defense, as has happened so many times when they become a target of negative comments on social networks. What will Disney do? Is Wright in danger of losing his job in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever? The next few weeks will be key, since the company will require a vaccination test in the productions that are taking place at the moment.

If we’ve learned anything from the past, it’s that Disney doesn’t shake its hand when it comes to firing troublesome people. Gina Carano you can verify it.
