Letitia Wright has gone dark on social media after facing backlash for sharing a video that expressed skepticism about a coronavirus vaccine.
The “Black Panther” star, 27, appears to have deleted her Instagram and Twitter accounts following the controversy, which saw internet trolls asking Marvel to fire her for being a “stupid bitch.”
Searching for Wright’s Twitter account results in a “This account doesn’t exist” message.
At first, Wright seemed to take the criticism in stride, making light of the internet’s penchant for cancel culture.
“if you don’t conform to popular opinions. but ask questions and think for yourself….you get cancelled [laugh emoji],” she tweeted Thursday.
When the cyberbullying failed to cease, Wright explained why she shared the video on her Twitter.
“my intention was not to hurt anyone, my ONLY intention of posting the video was it raised my concerns with what the vaccine contains and what we are putting in our bodies,” she wrote. “Nothing else.”
Her co-star Don Cheadle came out and tweeted that he wouldn’t “defend” her for posting the video but added, “i still won’t throw her away over it.”
A little social media break could do us all some good.
