We've learned over the last couple of days that actress Evangeline Lilly's views regarding COVID-19 jabs have not changed despite the fact that she once drew flak for expressing her disapproval of the said vaccines. In case you haven't heard, the Ant-Man star revealed on social media that she participated in an anti-vaccination protest in D.C., once again making it clear that she has no plans of getting vaccinated amid the recent Omicron spread in America.

Unsurprisingly, fans are ripping Lilly apart on social media and the backlash is getting a lot worse. Recently, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings actor voiced his opinion regarding the matter and in the process helped raise awareness on vaccines. Now, another MCU cast member has taken to social media with a statement that is seemingly directed at Lilly.

David Dastmalchian, who also stars in the Ant-Man franchise as one of Scott Lang's buddies Kurt posted on Twitter to express his dismay over people who use their platform to "share irresponsible things". The Suicide Squad star didn't actually mention his Marvel co-star but it doesn't take a genius to know that he's calling Evangeline out.

Lilly, who is quite the social media savvy seems to be unfazed by the growing criticism that is being thrown her way which is actually weird considering she apologized for her 2020 remarks. Now, it'll be interesting to see how much longer she'll be able to ignore the issue, especially with Disney being notorious for reprimanding its stars who share controversial views on social media.

Meanwhile, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is scheduled for release in 2023.
