Marvel and Lost actress Evangeline Lilly is slamming vaccine mandates. The Ant-Man star attended a rally and sounded off on COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the 43-year-old star shared a picture from the rally she attended in Washington, DC, this weekend to support “bodily sovereignty” – ie, protest against COVID-19 vaccine mandates. “This is not the way,” Lilly wrote. “This is not safe. This is not healthy. This is not love. I understand the world is in fear, but I do not believe that answering fear with force will fix our problems. I was pro choice before COVID and I am still pro choice today. ”
Lilly added, “I believe nobody should ever be forced to inject their body with anything, against their will, under threat of: violent attack, arrest or detention without trial, loss of employment, homelessness, starvation, loss of education, alienation from loved ones, excommunication from society… under any threat whatsoever. ”
Back at the start of the pandemic in March 2020, Lilly announced on Instagram she was refusing to social distance “all in the name of a respiratory flu,” which led to some backlash. She later posted an apology for her comments.
A vaccine mandate for large companies was withdrawn by the Joe Biden administration this week after a Supreme Court decision blocked it. Many states and cities have their own independent vaccine requirements for various workers.
Lilly, who plays Hope Van Dyne in the Ant-Man films, isn’t the only Marvel star to come out against vaccine mandates. Black Panther star Letitia Wright posted an anti-vax conspiracy video in December.
On the work front, Evangeline Lilly next appears in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniawhich has wrapped production and is slated for a 2023 release.
