Back at the beginning of the pandemic, Lost star Daniel Dae Kim was one of the first celebrities to contract COVID-19 and his Lost costar Evangeline Lilly was one of the first celebrities to be a dickhole about it. At the time, Daniel posted a message on Instagram urging folks to take precautions, and Lily posted a message on Instagram letting people know that quarantining is for punks. This was back in March of 2020, well before several safe and effective vaccines were developed and Daniel became quite ill, but thankfully, made a full recovery. Evangeline on the other hand, still has a terrible case of the dickholes, but even if there was a vaccination against that type of thing, she’d probably protest it.
According to a recent post on Instagram, Evangeline spent the weekend listening to Cheryl Hines‘ dickhole poxed husband Robert F. Kennedy Jr. bring up Anne Frank’s name in his anti-vaccine rant. Evangeline posted a series of pictures from her weekend in DC in support of “bodily sovereignty,” and drew a direct line between her being anti-vaxx (mandates at least) and her being “pro-choice.” So there’s at least one thing we can agree on. All babies have cooties! What? My conclusion makes about as much sense as hers. Here’s Evangeline’s post.
Jesus, lady. Lay it on a little thicker why don’t you. Evangeline is Canadian, and as you can see in her post, she is also in support of a group of Canadian truckers who are currently en route to Ottawa to protest Canada’s vaccine mandate for cross-border drivers. According to AP:
A convoy of truckers set to descend on Ottawa to protest a vaccine mandate for cross-border drivers is prompting Canadian police to prepare for violence and politicians to warn against escalating rhetoric linked to the demonstration.
The truckers are protesting a new requirement that truckers entering Canada be fully immunized as of Jan. 15. The United States has imposed the same requirement on truckers entering that country.
The Canadian Trucking Alliance has estimated that about 15% truckers in Canada — as many as 16,000 — are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Some with far-right views have latched onto the protest. One online video includes a man expressing hope the rally will turn into the Canadian equivalent of the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol by supporters of former president Donald Trump.
Reps for Lilly did not immediately respond to Rolling Stone’s request for comment. Although Lilly’s own vaccination status is unknown, the actress spent the latter half of 2021 filming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania; Disney (which houses the Marvel Cinematic Universe) instituted a vaccine mandate on all productions in October as part of a return-to-work agreement between the studios and the unions, the Hollywood Reporter wrote.
Sounds to me like her bodily autonomy has a price. I don’t see her protesting her boss’ vaccine mandate with the same vigor. The least she could do is fuck off back home and make everybody sweat like Black Panther‘s Letitia Wright did. That actually took balls (and a whole lot of stupidity). But I guess Evangeline is more of an armchair protester. Next thing you know she’s going to have a podcast. Oh shit, spoke too soon.
Seven whole episodes and she never once had fellow RFK Jr. stan Jessica Biel on. Such a shame.
