Simu Liu reveals he lost his grandparents to COVID after another Marvel star took an anti-vaccine stance

“Shang-Chi” star Simu Liu tweeted his support for COVID-19 vaccines a few hours after “Ant-Man” actress Evangeline Lilly spoke in favor of “bodily sovereignty” over vaccine mandates.

Lilly took to Instagram yesterday to write about her participation in an anti-vaccination meeting in Washington DC, organized by a nonprofit organization belonging to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who triggered widespread controversy to say that people today have less freedom than Anne Frank.

The actress who portrayed Hope van Dyne, or the wasp, in the 2018 film “Ant-Man and the Wasp” did not mention Kennedy, but instead shared photos taken during the event with signs that read: “Vaxxed Democrat for Medical freedom,” “Nurses for Vaxx-Choice” and “Feds for Medical Freedom.” She also included a quote from Indian-American entrepreneur Naval Ravikant: “All tyranny begins with the desire to force others to the greater.”

“I was in DC this weekend to support bodily sovereignty while Canadian truck drivers rallied for their cross-country, peaceful convoy in support of the same,” Lilly wrote in her post. “I believe that no one should ever be forced to inject their body with anything, against their will, under threat of: violent assault, arrest or detention without trial, loss of employment, homelessness, hunger, loss of education, alienation from loved ones. , excommunication from society and under any threat.

“This is not the way,” she added. “This is not safe. This is not healthy. This is not love. I understand that the world is in fear, but I do not think that answering fear by force will solve our problems. I was pro-choice before COVID, and I’m still pro-choice today. ”

In response, Liu later took to Twitter to share his support for the mandatory Covid-19 vaccination hours after Lilly shared her Instagram post.

“I lost my grandparents to COVID last year,” Liu said tweeted. “They were still waiting for their vaccines. I’m lucky to have been double-vaccinated and boosted when I got COVID 2 weeks ago. Felt like a cold. The media needs to stop focusing on opinions that are not rooted in facts or science.”

“As a @UNICEFCanada Ambassador, I have seen the organization’s efforts to deliver vaccines to underprivileged families around the world,” he said. added. “It’s a reminder of how lucky we are to live in places where vaccine delivery and storage is not an issue. Please appreciate it.”

Actor David Dastmalchian, who played cybercriminal Kurt Goreshter in both Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man” movies, as well as Polka-Dot Man in the 2021 DC Comics movie “The Suicide Squad,” also shared his opinion on Twitter, as some users thought referenced to Lilly’s Instagram post.

Marvel star Letitia Wright, who portrayed Princess Shuri 2018’s “Black Panther”, has also previously come under fire for her anti-vaccination views on social media, according to Newsweek.
