Letitia Wright says her “intention” with sharing an anti-vaccination video on Twitter Thursday was “not to hurt anyone.”

“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,” the “Black Panther” star tweeted Friday. “Nothing else.”

Wright, who plays tech genius (and T’Challa’s sister) Shuri in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, had fans upset on Thursday night after she shared an antivaxxer video on Twitter.

Some users said the video she shared included transphobic and climate denialist content, while others protested what they believed to be the irresponsibility of encouraging people not to get vaccinated in the middle of a pandemic.

Wright frequently responded to people, and also occasionally liked tweets calling for her to be fired or for “Black Panther 2” to be canceled.

Wright’s Marvel Cinematic Universe coworker Don Cheadle initially quote tweeted her saying “Bye Letitia,” a pun on the phrase “Bye, Felicia” usually used to dismiss people. However in a series of follow up tweets Cheadle insisted he meant no ill will and considers Wright “my lil sis.”

Representatives for Marvel and Wright did not respond to requests for comment from TheWrap Thursday night.
