1. Evangeline Lilly went to a rally against vaccine mandates

You have to log off, Kate! You have to log off! Evangeline Lilly, who plays The Wasp in Marvel's Ant-Man, has sparked backlash after revealing she attended a rally against vaccine mandates in Washington, D.C. Yes, that would be the rally where Robert F. Kennedy Jr. compared vaccine mandates to the Holocaust and suggested anti-vaxxers are worse off today than Anne Frank. On Instagram, Lilly said she went to "support bodily sovereignty," writing that "nobody should ever be forced to inject their body with anything." It's the latest anti-vaxx mess for Marvel after Black Panther star Letitia Wright shared an anti-vaccine video and reportedly pushed anti-vaccine views on set. Lilly is a repeat offender in this area, though, after declaring she wasn't self-isolating over COVID-19 because it's just "a respiratory flu." She'll be back in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania next summer, though if it now opens with a title card reading, "Note: The Wasp died on the way back to her home planet," don't be shocked.
