MCU actor Don Cheadle has called out his Marvel Studios colleague Letitia Wright after she shared an anti-COVID-19 vaccine video on her Twitter account. He has since deleted the original tweet, however, he left some of his other tweets criticising the video up.
This is starting to turn into a really big deal now, and I’m pretty sure some people inside Marvel will be rather worried about this whole story. It all started with Letitia Wright sharing a YouTube video on her Twitter account. The video in question is called COVID-19 Vaccine, Should We Take It, and I have to say, after watching it, there’s a lot of nonsense in that video.
So, this is what Don Cheadle had to say about the whole thing in his now-deleted tweet. He quote tweeted Wright, who wrote: “If you don’t conform to popular opinions. but ask questions and think for yourself….you get cancelled.” Don Cheadle had one thing to say to that tweet, and that was: “Bye, Letitia”, an obvious nod to the popular saying: “Bye, Felicia”.
Don Cheadle isn’t very happy with Letitia Wright after she shared an anti-COVID-19 video on Twitter

However, Cheadle also tweeted the following: “jesus… just scrolled through. hot garbage. every time i stopped and listened, he and everything he said sounded crazy and fkkkd 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.”
He tweeted this after he was told by people on Twitter to go and watch the video Letitia posted. So, it seems as though there might be a bit of a rift between War Machine and Shuri in real-life. That said, Cheadle does say that Letitia should be cancelled for this, and I agree with him.
I completely understand people being cautious as far as the COVID-19 vaccine is concerned. It’s new, and that’s pretty scary. There’s always going to be a fear of something that’s still very new. That said, we are in the midst of a global pandemic. Countless people have died as a result of COVID-19. This vaccine is being made to save people, and spreading fear and what seems to be a lot of false information within that video isn’t the way to go.
