Today Letitia Wright is making headlines because she posted an anti-vaccination video on Twitter in which the actress was branded an anti-Vaxxer.

Controversy has called for Wright to be recast in the upcoming Black Panther sequel, as many Marvel fans respond to the video, which the actress defended in later tweets.

Currently, Wright plays in the famous superhero movie Shuri, a technical genius and sister of King T’Challa, played by the late Chadwick Boseman.

The 27-year-old posted a video from Invazion Media Network questioning the value of vaccinations and accompanied the tweet with his hands in prayer moji, typically used to denote praise.

At one point in the one-hour video of a panel discussion, moderator Tomi Arayomi said, “I don’t understand vaccines medically, but I’ve always been a little skeptical about them.

“You know, maybe a new version for Black Panther is necessary, I’m thinking of Kiki Layne, Lovie Simone, what the hell,” one person tweeted.

Ryan Coogler is the director and screenwriter of Black Panther. Black Panther II faces some challenges if it is to continue without Boseman.

Another person added: “Letitia gone continues to tweet and we see Amandla Stenberg as Shuri in Black Panther 2”.

However, many have defended Wright by saying that she has a right to be skeptical.

As one Twitter user put it: “Sooooo you’re all angry at a black person who is skeptical about taking medication? lol let’s not sit up here and pretend that medical treatment for blacks has been widely available in the past. Black people have every right to be skeptical about medical experiments”.

Another added: “Wait, wait, let me say this and make it very clear that you will all leave @letitiawright alone, and that is the rule, and I mean neooooow. She is allowed to think, feel and believe whatever she wants. You can’t cancel her, she is still #Shuri you need a nap #ISaidWhatISaid”.
