This comes after fans desperately plea for her termination. "FIRE @EvangelineLilly NOW. She is spreading misinformation. She deserves to be BLACKLISTED," one fan tweeted. "ANY PUBLIC FIGURE THAT USES THEIR PLATFORM TO DOWNPLAY THE SERIOUSNESS OF THIS VIRUS SHOULD BE BLACKLISTED. FOR LIFE. FROM WORKING IN ENTERTAINMENT. PERIOD."

Sophie Turner even shaded Lilly adding that she doesn't “give a f— about your freedom.”

The criticism toward Lilly began when she posted about taking her kids to gymnastics. “Just dropped my kids off at gymnastics camp," she posted on Instagram.

" They all washed their hands before going in. They are playing and laughing. #businessasusual,” she continued.

Fans expressed their frustration in the comments section.

"I love Evangeline Lilly and I’ve always dismissed her problematic ways but the fact that’s she’s refusing to quarantine bc she thinks covid19 is a political hoax is driving me up the wall. YOU ARE PUTTING PEOPLE’S LIVES AT RISK LADY. So disappointed," one fan wrote.

“I am also immune compromised at the moment,” Lilly replied directly to the fan.

“I have two young kids. Some people value their lives over freedom, some people value freedom over their lives. We all make our choices,” she continued.

Lilly responded to another comment on her post insinuating that coronavirus is a hoax as reported by Page Six.

“Where we are right now feels a lot too close to Marshall Law for my comfort already, all in the name of a respiratory flu. It’s unnerving. Let’s be vigilant right now. And kind," she wrote in response to a comment.

Watchful and gracious — keeping a close eye on our leaders, making sure they don’t abuse this moment to steal away more freedoms and grab more power,” she continued.

“I think we all need to slow down, take a breath and look at the facts we are being presented with. They do not add up to the all-out, global lockdown, control, pandemoniac and insanity we are experiencing. I hope that people will find their peace and sanity where you are soon.”
