Black Panther’s Letitia Wright Denies Spreading Anti-Vaccine Claims on Set

Black Panther Letitia Wright Denies Sharing Anti-Vaccine Claims on Set

“It saddens me to have to address the reports published by The Hollywood Reporter on October 6th 2021. The report spoke about my conduct on the set of black Panther 2. I honestly assert that this was completely untrue,” Wright’s caption reads in part, accompanying an image displaying a fragment from the Contemporary English Version Bible’s reading of Isaiah 54:17, “Weapons made to attack you won’t be successful; Words spoken against you won’t hurt at all.”

“Anyone who knows me or has worked with me, knows that I work incredibly hard at my craft & my main focus is always to do work that’s impactful and inspiring,” Wright continued. “That has been & will continue to be my only focus.” Marvel Studios itself has remained silent on both the initial response to Wright’s tweet as well as recent reporting about her Black Panther: Wakanda Forever set conduct (although fellow Marvel co-stars like Don Cheadle did call the actor out at the time, in similarly since-deleted tweets).

io9 has reached out to Disney for comment on the allegations and will update this post if we hear back.
