The Marvel star shared multiple photos from the event, and listed her reasoning for why she does not believe in COVID vaccine mandates.

‘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, excommunication from society…under any threat whatsoever.’

The Canadian actress continued, ‘This is not the way. This is not safe. This is not healthy. This is not love.’

The post comes almost two years after the star caused controversy by revealing that she refused to self-quarantine at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic because she ‘values freedom.’

In the March 2020 post she wrote, ‘Some people value their lives over freedom, some people value freedom over their lives. We all make our choices.’ 

She then angered many by comparing the virus to a ‘respiratory flu.’ 

Ten days later she apologized for her comments. ‘I thought I was infusing calm into the hysteria. I can see now that I was projecting my own fears into an already fearful and traumatic situation.’

Controversy: The post comes two years after the star caused controversy by revealing she refused to self-quarantine at the start of COVID and compared the virus to a 'respiratory flu'
