Evangeline Lilly rose to fame with her role as Kate in one of the greatest TV shows of all time, "Lost," followed by major roles in "The Hobbit" and "Ant-Man."
Now she's sure to make Hollywood heads spin with this anti-mandate message on her Instagram.
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.
I believe nobody should ever be forced to inject their body with anything, against their will, under threat of:
-arrest or detention without trial
-loss of employment
-loss of education
-alienation from loved ones
-excommunication from society
…under any threat whatsoever.
This is not the way. This is not safe. This is not healthy. This is not love. I understand the world is in fear, but I don't believe that answering fear with force will fix our problems.
I was pro choice before COVID and I am still pro choice today.
This message is something you almost never see out of Hollywood.
Lilly is, of course, still trying to keep her liberal name clean by including a line about being pro-choice. But at least she is trying to be consistent, even if she misunderstands the right to life.
Here are the photos she posted from the event, all with a warning from Instagram, of course.
This is true bravery from someone in Hollywood. It's the kind of political stance that could cost someone their career. It's not easy to stand up against all of your friends and your entire industry.
The last picture Lilly included is a very powerful and impactful quote that really sums up the entire anti-mandate side:
It's a dangerous game for the actress. She is already being labeled as an "anti-vaxxer" and "science denier" by her "fans."
