Marvel Star Speaks Out Against COVID-19 Jab Mandates

The Biden administration hasn’t only had the entire backing of the Democratic party and many government agencies when it came to the COVID-19 mandates, but they were also able to get Hollywood to help them promote it. During the first couple of months of the COVID-19 pandemic, celebrities released videos, made speeches, and called for unity. But while some might still promote and push the COVID-19 jab for the Biden administration, one Marvel actress isn’t staying silent when it comes to her objection to any government forcing a drug on people. 

On Thursday, Ant-Man star, Evangeline Lilly, wrote an Instagram post detailing how she was supporting medical freedom and a person’s right to decide if they want to get the jab or not. Lilly, being a native Canadian, also showed support for the Freedom Truckers who are currently convoying to Ottawa to protest the COVID-19 mandates. 

In her post, Lilly wrote, “I was in DC this weekend to support bodily sovereignty while Canadian truckers were rallying for their cross-country, peaceful convoy in support of the same thing,” Lilly said. “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.”

The actress added, “This is not the way. 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. I was pro choice before COVID and I am still pro choice today.” 

This wouldn’t be the first post from Lilly as back in 2020, the star had to write an apology for suggesting her life was normal during the COVID-19 pandemic. She explained at the time, “I am writing you from my home where I have been social distancing since Mar 18th – when social distancing was instituted in the small community where I am currently living. At the time of my Mar 16th post, the directives from the authorities here were that we not congregate in groups of more than 250ppl and that we wash our hands regularly, which we were doing. Two days later, those directives changed and, despite my intense trepidation over the socioeconomic and political repercussions of this course of action, PLEASE KNOW I AM DOING MY PART TO FLATTEN THE CURVE, PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND STAYING HOME WITH MY FAMILY.”
