Marvel actress Evangeline Lilly has been hounded and attacked online for publicly declaring her opposition to vaccine mandates.
Lilly shared photos after attending a “Defeat the Mandates” rally in Washington, D.C. captioning the images, “I believe nobody should ever be forced to inject their body with anything, against their will… under any threat whatsoever. This is not the way.”
Lilly added, “This is not safe. This is not healthy. This is not love. I understand the world is in fear, but I don’t believe that answering fear with force will fix our problems.”
And with that the bitter backlash ensued, with calls for her immediate cancelation:
Recast. Immediate. They shoulda recast Letitia Wright. They should recast Evangeline Lilly. Ain’t nothing THAT special about em. There are much more talented (and sane) actors out there who can take up their spot & make the set a safe space. https://t.co/OyCge9XCIl

Evangeline Lilly is in Marvel films and apparently she would rather be stuck in a production of Steel Magnolias at the Waco Playhouse with Kristy Swanson and Gina Carano.
