Neither did Liu, who portrays the titular role in the 2021 Marvel film Shang-Chi & the Legend of the Ten RingsWhen he tweeted the news of the coronavirus pandemic the day Lilly posted her message.

Last year, my grandparents died from COVID. They were still waiting for their vaccines,” the actor tweeted. “I was fortunate to be double-vaccinated, and then boosted 2 weeks ago when I received COVID. “Felt like I had a common cold.” 

He called on the media not to “spotlight opinions that don’t have scientific support”

Lilly didn’t comment on comments made by her Marvel co-stars.

This isn’t the first time she has faced backlash for her opinions on the pandemic. In March 2020, after The Hobbit Star compared COVID with a “respiratory virus” and stated that the current situation feels too similar to Marshall. [sic] Law for my comfort,” she was seemingly slammed by actress Sophie Turner.

“Stay inside, don’t be f–king stupid… even if you count your ‘freedom’ over your… health,” the Game of Thrones alum said on Instagram Live at the time. “I don’t give a damn about your freedom. It could be infecting others, vulnerable people around it.”

Lilly then apologized on Instagram for her arrogant comments. I didn’t mean to offend you. Ten days ago I believed I was trying to infuse calm into the hypersteria. Now I see that my fears were a projection of my own fear into a traumatic and already frightening situation.
