Marvel actress Evangeline Lilly vehemently protests vaccine mandates, shares pics from DC rally

Marvel actress Evangeline Lilly shared her thoughts on her attendance at an anti-vaccine rally in Washington, D.C. “to support bodily sovereignty.”

The “Lost” and “Ant-Man” star took to Instagram to share photos and address her participation in the rally over the weekend which featured remarks by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

“I was in DC this weekend to support bodily sovereignty while Canadian truckers were rallying for their cross-country, peaceful convoy in support of the same thing,” the 42-year-old Canadian star told her 2.2 million followers on Instagram Thursday.

“I believe nobody should ever be forced to inject their body with anything, against their will,” she wrote in the caption, sharing some of the threats faced for refusing the jab, including “violent attacks,” loss of employment and education, “alienation from loved ones” and “ex-communication from society.”

“This is not the way. This is not safe. This is not healthy. This is not love,” Lilly added.

“I understand the world is in fear, but I don’t believe that answering fear with force will fix our problems,” the “Hobbit” star wrote.

The mother of two concluded: “I was pro-choice before COVID and I am still pro-choice today,” followed by hashtags including “#medicalfreedom,” “#bodilyautonomy” and “#defeatthemandatesdc.”

Lilly had garnered attention at the beginning of the COVID pandemic in March 2020 when she had been critical of social distancing and quarantining, saying, “Some people value their lives over freedom, some people value freedom over their lives. We all make choices.”

She eventually apologized after the backlash.

“My direct and special apologies to those most affected by this pandemic,” she wrote in a statement. “I never meant to hurt you. When I wrote that post 10 days ago, I thought I was infusing calm into the hysteria. I can see now that I was projecting my own fears into an already fearful and traumatic situation.”

The actress will be appearing in the upcoming “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” set for a 2023 release.
