Mercedes Varnado, best known as WWE superstar Sasha Banks made her mainstream acting debut in the second season of The Mandalorian much to the delight of wrestling diehards the world over. Her brief stint in the hit series as Koska Reeves thanks to creator Jon Favreau was well-received by many and unsurprisingly, it turned a lot of heads within the Star Wars community as well and by the looks of it, we’ll be seeing more of her in future projects now that the Mandoverse expansion is in full swing.
However, the 29-year-old professional wrestler is suffering the same fate her The Mandalorian co-star Gina Carano went through last year. The multi-time WWE Women’s Champion is currently under fire for liking a post that apparently shows support for the heated anti-vaccination debate. The said post states the ongoing conspiracy theory about COVID-19 vaccines and criticizes the use of masks.
After learning about it, fans naturally came to the conclusion that Banks, just like Carano is an anti-vaxxer. It’s still unconfirmed whether or not Banks is actually against vaccination but people on Twitter have obviously made up their mind and just like that, Sasha is the latest celebrity to feel the wrath of cancel culture. Check out the reactions here:

It doesn’t come as a surprise how a lot of people are “passionate” when it comes to voicing out their opinions and criticism about anti-vaxxers. I mean, the COVID-19 pandemic shouldn’t be treated likely and even A-list celebrities have joined the crusade to convince people that vaccination is important to finally put a stop to the pandemic. Sasha, who is currently taking time off in the ring has yet to address the allegations but I’m hoping she sets the record straight soon.
The Mandalorian Season 3 is currently in development.
