Letitia Wright's COVID-19 Vaccine Controversy

Later, Wright said she didn't mean to hurt anyone by sharing the video. She explained that her only goal was to talk about her worries about the vaccine and what it has in it. After this, she decided to stop using social media. 

In October 2021, there were reports that Letitia had issues with her U.S. team because of the video. People said she was still talking against vaccines during the filming of "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" in Atlanta. Wright came back on social media to say these reports were not true. 

During an interview in November 2022, Angela Bassett, Wright's co-star in Wakanda Forever, said she never heard Wright talking against vaccines on set. The Marvel vice president also said he didn't know if she got the vaccine, but it didn't affect the filming. 

Letitia's publicist and representatives didn't want to talk about her vaccination status during the interview. Later that month, she criticized The Hollywood Reporter for calling her someone with "personal baggage" in an article. 

Wright said the publication and the author had an "agenda" against her, which she found "vile" and "disgusting." She mentioned she already said sorry for her past comments and didn't want to talk about it anymore.
