Letitia Wright is getting attacked online or her recent comments about the coronavirus vaccine. Per Complex, the Black Panther star tweeted then deleted a controversial YouTube video that was skeptical of potential COVID-19 vaccines.

The outlet states, “The video shows On the Table host Tomi Arayomi expressing his lack of faith in a vaccine, which could begin rolling out in the U.K. as early as next week.” In the clip, Arayomi says, “I don’t know if I trust this vaccine. Hope to God it doesn’t make extra limbs grow.”

Letitia instantly began getting attacked online. Not necessarily because she was questioning the vaccine, but because of the  type of anti-vax propaganda video that she posted. There were also moments in the video where Tomi Arayomi makes transphobic comments.

The actress later went to Twitter and wrote, “if you don’t conform to popular opinions. but ask questions and think for yourself….you get cancelled.”

After that, she changed her tune and kind of apologized. She wrote, “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.”
