Letitia Wright Calls Out Publication For Comparing Her Anti-Vaccination Tweet To Male Actors With Scandal Controversies

The actress expresses how she feels the intent was “vile behavior”

Leticia Wright took to social media on Monday (November 21) to show her frustrations over an article from The Hollywood Reporter comparing her COVID-19 tweet to the recent scandals of some men in Hollywood.

"How dare you. You mentioned my name alongside men who have been accused of abuse & sexual misconduct. This is vile behavior," Wright wrote on the story.

The article details how Wright’s recent controversies involving her anti-vaccination retweet in the past may affect her chances during Oscar Awards season, listing the controversies of Will Smith, Brad Pitt, Woody Allen, and Casey Affleck.

THR Editor-In-Chief Nekesa Mumbi Moody told USA Today, "the intent was not to equate Letitia Wright's situation with others mentioned in the article."

Earlier this week, the Black Panther actress shared how she moved on from the incident in a “healthy way.”

“I feel it's something I experienced two years ago, and I have in a healthy way moved on,” she expressed.

“And in a healthy way, I've apologized and deleted my Twitter. I just apologized for any hurt that was caused to anybody."
