Don Cheadle has called an anti-vaccination video shared online by his Avengers: Endgame co-star Letitia Wright ‘hot garbage’.
Black Panther actor Wright sparked controversy after sharing a video questioning the safety of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Wright has since deleted the post which contained the video, tweeting “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. Nothing else.”
The British star, 27, had tweeted a video called ‘Covid-19 Vaccine: Should We Take It?’ from ‘On The Table’, a YouTube discussion channel, where the presenter Tomi Arayomi spoke at length about his personal feelings about the efficacy and safety of vaccines.
Marvel fans shared Wright’s post with Cheadle, who plays James Rhodes/War Machine in the film series.
He wrote: “Jesus… just scrolled through. hot garbage.
“Every time i stopped and listened, he and everything he said sounded crazy and f***** up. i would never defend anybody posting this. but i still won’t throw her away over it. the rest i’ll take off twitter. had no idea.”
