Letitia Wright is done with social media for now.

The 27-year-old Black Panther actress quietly deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts after facing backlash from fans earlier this week.

The following day, Letitia reacted to the backlash for questioning the COVID-19 vaccine by tweeting, “My intention was not to hurt anyone, my ONLY intention of posting the video was it raised my concerns with what the vaccine contains and what we are putting in our bodies…Nothing else.”

Letitia Wright and Jamie Bell will star in the upcoming movie Surrounded, which is set five years after the Civil War.

Deadline reports that in the movie, “former Buffalo Soldier Moses ‘Mo’ Washington travels west to lay claim on a gold mine bequeathed by her late slaveowner father.

After her stagecoach is ambushed, she is tasked with holding a dangerous outlaw captive and must survive the day when the bandit’s gang tries to free him.”

Lovecraft Country‘s Michael K. Williams will also star in the movie, which will be directed by longtime music video director Anthony Mandler.

Mandler‘s directorial debut is a movie called Monster, which will debut on Netflix next year.

“I couldn’t be more excited that Surrounded is the first film under my partnership with Aaron L. Gilbert’s Bron and the Blackhand Media banner,” Mandler said in a statement. “I’ve always loved the Western genre and the opportunity to tell this story from the eyes of a Black female during the Wild West is an honor.”

Letitia was recently asked about filming the Black Panther sequel without star Chadwick Boseman, who passed away this summer.

Letitia Wright Is Asked About Filming 'Black Panther' Without Chadwick Boseman

Letitia Wright was asked about the possibility of filming the second Black Panther movie without the film’s star, Chadwick Boseman.

Chadwick tragically passed away from colon cancer at the age of 43 in August of 2020.

Letitia plays the role of Shuri in the Marvel movies, and many believe she could actually become the next Black Panther based on what happens to her character in the comics.

While doing an interview with Porter, Letitia was asked about reprising her role in the upcoming sequel without her co-star.

“We’re just still mourning Chad, so it’s not something I even want to think about. The thought of doing it without him is kinda strange. We’re just grieving at the moment, so it’s trying to find the light in the midst of it,” Letitia responded. Our continued thoughts are with Chadwick‘s loved ones, friends, and family during this time.

Chadwick kept his illness private from most people and his agent actually explained why.
