‘Lost’ Star Evangeline Lilly Attends Anti-Covid-19 Vaccine Mandate Rally
Evangeline Lilly, best known for Lost and more recently the Ant-Man Marvel movies, revealed on Instagram yesterday that she attended a rally protesting vaccine mandates. Lilly uploaded several photos of the protests, which took place Sunday.
Along with the photos, Lilly posted a lengthy caption, writing, “I believe nobody should ever be forced to inject their body with anything, against their will.” She then listed several outlandish claims, including that people were being forced to get vaccines or be faced with, “violent attacks” and “arrest or detention without trial,” among others. “I understand the world is in fear, but I don’t believe that answering fear with force will fix our problems,” Lilly added.
She also drew fire for the final line of the caption, which read, “I was pro choice before COVID and I am still pro choice today.” Representing the divide in opinions over vaccines in America, Lilly was both criticized and lauded by those of clashing opinions on the state of America’s Covid response. Her post was flooded with plenty of supportive comments and comments that agreed with their sentiment, while others mercilessly roasted her online for the post.
At this same rally, lawyer and antivax activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. drew widespread criticism for saying that things are worse for people today than they were for Anne Frank. Frank famously died in a concentration camp after spending two years in hiding in Amsterdam.
