Actress Evangeline Lilly posted on social media about attending an anti-vaxxer rally in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, Jan. 27, reiterating her anti-vaccination views and spreading misinformation about the safety of vaccines.

Lilly, who plays The Wasp in the Marvel "Ant-Man" series, posted a series of pictures showing that she was in Washington, D.C. during an anti-vaxxer rally. She talked about joining to protect “bodily sovereignty,” reportedly a dog whistle for anti-vaccination views, Variety reported.

“I believe nobody should ever be forced to inject their body with anything, against their will, under threat of violent attack, arrest or detention without trial, loss of employment, homelessness, starvation, loss of education, alienation from loved ones, [ex-communication] from society…under any threat whatsoever,” she said on the post.

The rally contained a speech from Robert Kennedy, Jr., a noted anti-vaxxer politician who once compared vaccine mandates to the Holocaust and is known to have consistently spread misinformation about vaccines causing autism in kids, according to the Daily Beast.

Lilly’s vaccination status is currently unknown, though some of the photos in her Instagram post muddies the waters a bit as she included a protestor with a placard saying “Vaxxed Democrat for Medical Freedom,” implying that she may be vaccinated in spite of her views.

She is not the first Marvel cast member to express anti-vaccination views publicly: "Black Panther" actress Letitia Wright shared a conspiracy theory video regarding the safety of a COVID vaccine in social media in 2020, with rumors that she remains unvaccinated as she shoots the sequel to the hit film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Lilly had also previously expressed COVID denial beliefs when she refused to self-quarantine in March 2020 despite her father’s cancer. She later posted an apology on social media for her post and has largely remained quiet regarding the matter.

The Biden administration attempted to institute a vaccine mandate for large companies and citizens in 2021; however, the Supreme Court blocked the mandate, forcing the administration to backpedal on the policy.

Lilly will be next seen on "Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania," due to release in 2023.
