Last year, actress Letitia Wright found herself in a sticky situation on social media after getting called out for sharing tweets that promoted anti-vaccine rhetoric.
While most would use a situation like that to either watch what they say in public or simply keep their personal opinions private, Wright has reportedly decided to stick to her anti-vaxxer stance and is even spreading the word while filming Black Panther 2 in Atlanta.

In a wider report by The Hollywood Reporter that digs deeper into how vaccine mandates are affecting film & television productions, the 27-year-old actress was mentioned once again amongst those avidly against getting the shot.
Here’s what’s reportedly happening over in Atlanta on the set of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, via THR:
“In Wright’s case, a set source says she has espoused similar views about the COVID-19 vaccines on the Atlanta production. The British actress quietly parted ways with her entire U.S. team of representatives in the wake of a backlash over posting a controversial anti-vaccine video in December.
Disney, the studio behind Black Panther, will begin rolling out a sticker system on all of its new productions in mid-October that requires visible proof of COVID-19 vaccination status, as stipulated in a return-to-work agreement between AMPTP and Hollywood’s unions. Those in Zone A who are fully vaccinated will have a wristband. Those who are not, will not. (Anything already shooting is not covered.)”
