Unvaccinated Black Panther star Letitia Wright was barred from returning to the U.S. after flying home to London to recover from an on-set injury last year.

Wright's banishment, along with positive COVID tests among the crew. forced Marvel Studios to delay the production of the Black Panther sequel.

Last week the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration's vaccine mandates as unconstitutional. And now production of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is back on again, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Production for the film is now scheduled to continue this week in Atlanta. There are "about four weeks" of filming left on the Ryan Coogler-directed project, according to THR.

Wright sustained minor injuries while filming a Black Panther scene in August. A controversial tweet by the actress appeared to be anti-vax, but Wright denied it.

She later deleted her Twitter page and returned to England.

The sequel also stars Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Nyong'o, Florence Kasumba and Angela Bassett.

Wakanda Forever is the first movie in the franchise following Chadwick Boseman's death in 2020 from colon cancer.

Argentinian reporter Carlos Ferrara suffered an apparent heart attack and collapsed during a live news broadcast on Thursday.

Ferrara was reporting outside a COVID testing center in Buenos Aires, when he suddenly collapsed while speaking to a colleague.

At the end of the segment, Ferrara said to Channel 9 host Claudio Perez, "Sorry Claudio, sorry."

Claudio asked "What happened? What happened?" as the camera panned to Ferrara lying face down on the sidewalk. A small pool of blood spreads outward from Ferrara's head.

Claudio shouted "No!" then composed himself and said, "Well, Carlos had some difficulty. They will surely attend to him. We are going to make a cut."

Ferrara is the latest reporter to collapse during a live broadcast.

Last week, Brazilian reporter Rafael Silva, 36, collapsed while hosting "Alterosa." The camera quickly cut away to pre-filmed footage while the TV crew rushed to Silva's side.
 

According to Mediate.com, Silva suffered 5 heart attacks in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.

Both journalists reportedly received Covid-19 mRNA injections before suffering heart attacks.

Previously, Silva announced that he had received the third booster shot on Dec. 28. It isn't clear when Ferrara received his booster.

The incidents of reporters collapsing on air is beginning to strike fear in the hearts of news reporters everywhere.

"Another isolated case of illness in a young boy with no history of health problems," Federal Deputy Carla Zambelli tweeted along with a video of the incident.

The U.S. Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration's vaccine-or-test mandate for workplaces with over 100 employees.

The court allows vaccine mandates for healthcare workers at federally funded hospitals and clinics nationwide.

The Justices voted 6-3 to strike down the Biden administration's vaccine mandate for private corporations and large workplaces.

The Court also voted 5-4 to allow a vaccine mandate for workers at health care facilities that receive Medicare and Medicaid.

27 Republican governors asked the Court to block vaccine mandates proposed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

The Biden administration had asked the Court to allow vaccine mandates for healthcare workers.

The Brooklyn Nets is considering paying a small penalty so Kyrie Irving can play at home in the Barclays Center.

Just a few months ago, the unvaccinated star guard was banned from playing for the Nets at home or on the road.

However, the Nets had a change of heart after a losing slump left them 2.5 games behind the Chicago Bulls in the Eastern Conference.

After entering the NBA's health and safety protocol, Irving was allowed to return to the Nets for away games only.

Irving made an immediate impact, scoring 22 points in a win against the Indiana Pacers last Wednesday.

New York City is under a vaccine mandate that prevents Irving from playing at the Barclays center in Brooklyn. But a loophole in former mayor Bill de Blasio's executive order could allow Irving to play at the Barclays Center.

According to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, the maximum penalty for breaking the executive order is a $5,000 fine. That's pocket change for billionaire Nets owner Joe Tsai.

However, sports analysts say Irving should be forced to get the vaccines since $5,000 would be a hardship for the average New Yorker.

MSN Sports' writer Ricky O'Donnell argues:

"A $5K fine is a huge deterrent for any normal person that wants to break the NYC mandate. Tsai and Irving are not normal people. They are ridiculously rich. Just because the fine would be chump change for them doesn't make it right."

Question: Would you pay the fine so Irving can play at home?

Moderna CEO warns Americans may need a 5th mRNA booster shot in the fall since previous boosters lose effectiveness.

Stephane Bancel, the CEO of Moderna, spoke on Thursday at a Goldman Sachs conference of healthcare professionals, DailyMail.com reported.

Bancel said a 5th mRNA booster is necessary in the fall because 3rd and 4th booster shots administered this fall was "not going to hold great".

"I still believe we're going to need boosters in the fall of '22 and forward," Bancel said.

He said a vaccine in development to combat the mild Omicron variant will not be ready in the next few months.

Bancel added the elderly and those with underlying health conditions might need annual booster shots for the rest of their lives.

"We have been saying that we believe first this virus is not going away," Bancel said.

"We're going to have to live with it."

In related news, the CDC changed the definition of "fully vaccinated" to "up to date".

"We are now recommending that individuals stay up to date with additional doses that they are eligible for," said CDC Director Rochelle Walensky on Wednesday.

Whoopi Goldberg was shocked when she tested positive for Covid-19 despite being vaccinated and boosted (3 shots) against the coronavirus.

Whoopi, 66, told viewers she contracted Covid-19 during her holiday break from "The View," according to Page Six.

"I left a couple of weeks ago, just before the break, because somebody I had been around tested positive for coronavirus, so I left," Whoopi told her co-hosts via Zoom on Wednesday. She wore a black shirt with the words "Over It" on the front.

Whoopi was surprised at her positive results because she was triple vaccinated and she had been careful.

"I was all excited and, you know, they have to test us, and so they sent people to test me, and they tested me, and it was like, 'Oh no, you're not coming back. We're not sending anybody to your house. You have corona.' And it was like, 'Wait, what?'"

Millions of vaccinated Americans are similarly surprised when their COVID results come back positive.

Whoopi told her co-anchors she did everything she was supposed to do, yet she still caught the virus.

"But that's the thing about the Omicron, you just don't know where it is. You don't know where it is, who's got it, who's passing it. It's one of those things where you think, 'I've done everything I was supposed to do.'"

MediaPunch / BACKGRID

Whoopi said the pandemic won't end until everyone is vaccinated. She also spread misinformation about the coronavirus, saying it "gets stronger" with every mutation.

"Yeah, it doesn't stop Omicron, and that's the problem with a variant, because it gets stronger and does different stuff to you. So, you know, unless everybody gets vaccinated, this is what we're going to be facing for the next, you know, little while."

In unrelated news, "Today" anchor Hoda Kotb, who is also fully vaccinated and boosted, tested positive for the novel coronavirus. She is isolating at home for 5 days.

On Wednesday, Kotb, 57, thanked her fans for their support.

"Thx for well wishes! Feeling good.. [heart emoji] cant wait to see you all when I am in the clear! Xo," the mom of two tweeted.

NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar criticized NBA superstar LeBron James for posting a cryptic meme about Covid-19 on Instagram.

The meme shows three versions of Spider-Man pointing at each other. Each version is labeled COVID, flu and cold.

LeBron's IG post implied there is no difference between COVID, the common cold virus or the flu.

He captioned the meme, "Help me out folks" with a shrugging emoji.

The post generated over 2.5 million likes and more than 47,000 comments.

Abdul-Jabbar, a vocal supporter of the mRNA vaccines, took to his Substack page to scold LeBron.

"The meme's implication is that LeBron doesn't understand the difference among these three illnesses, even after all the information that's been presented in the press," Abdul-Jabbar wrote.

"Well, since he asked, let me help him out by explaining the difference—and how knowing that difference might save lives, especially in the Black community.

"As is evident by some of the comments that cheer LeBron's post, he's given support to those not getting vaccinated, which makes the situation for all of worse by postponing our health and economic recovery. The CDC reports that those who are unvaccinated are 9 times more likely to be admitted to the hospital and 14 times more likely to die from COVID than those vaccinated. The number rises to 20 time more likely when compared to someone who's gotten a booster shot. By posting the uninformed meme, LeBron has encouraged vaccine hesitancy which puts lives and livelihoods at risk."

Six of LeBron's teammates and Lakers head coach Frank Vogel entered the NBA's health and safety protocol last week after testing positive for the virus. All are vaccinated and none are experiencing any symptoms of infection.

Other influential sports figures questioned the logic of quarantining perfectly healthy athletes.

RELATED: LeBron James tests negative for Covid-19, Cleared to play, Tweets 'something fishy' is going on

LeBron sat out one game after testing false-positive with no symptoms. He tweeted there was something "fishy" about the NBA's Covid-19 tests.

Last week NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said he had no plans to pause the NBA season, since players who tested positive are asymptomatic.

"No plans right now to pause the season," Silver told ESPN.

"We've of course looked at the options but frankly, we're having trouble coming up with what the logic would be behind pausing right now... this virus will not be eradicated, and we're going to have to learn to live with it."

The CDC seemed to respond to the pushback on Monday by shortening the quarantine time from 10 days to 5 days for people who test positive without symptoms.

White House advisor Anthony Fauci says a fourth booster shot will be necessary in the new year to combat the mild Omicron variant.

"It's conceivable that, sooner or later, that everybody will have been infected and/or vaccinated or boosted," Fauci told Axios.

"When you get to that point, unless you have a very bizarre variant come in that evades all protection — which would be unusual — then I think you could get to that point where you have this at a steady level."

Fauci also warned that airline CEOs should not consider ending the face mask policy. Major airlines are reconsidering their face mask policies amid ongoing mask-related violence aboard planes.

Patricia Cornwall was arrested Thursday by the FBI after she slapped and spat on an 80-year-old passenger who pulled his mask down to eat.

Cornwall, who also pulled her mask down, was seen on cell phone video yelling at the man to "put on your f---king mask". Passengers restrained Cornwall in the back of the plane until the Delta flight from Tampa landed in Atlanta.

Cornwall, who is still in FBI custody, had an initial hearing on Monday at the Federal Courthouse in Atlanta.

In late 2020 and early 2021, Americans were told if they were "fully vaccinated" they would not get infected with the Covid-19 virus and their lives would return to normal.

A compilation video has preserved the original vaccine narrative for those who've forgotten.

Here are some quotes from the video -- in case it's deleted. These quotes are from early 2021. Compare these quotes with what they are telling you today.

"You're okay. You're not gonna get COVID if you have these vaccines."

"Vaccinated people do not carry the virus, don't get sick."

"Everyone who takes the vaccines is not just protecting themselves, but reducing their transmission to other people and allowing society to get back to normal."

"Our key goal is to stop the transmission, to get the immunity levels up, so that you get almost no infection going on whatsoever."

"When people are vaccinated, they can feel safe that they are not gonna get infected."

"If you're vaccinated, you're not gonna be hospitalized, you're not gonna be in an ICU unit, and you're not gonna die."

"If you are fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask."

"Anyone who is fully vaccinated can participate in indoor and outdoor activities - large or small - without wearing a mask or physical distancing."

As the original narrative began to fail miserably, health officials and the Biden administration changed the narrative.

The new narrative became -- no one ever said the vaccine would stop transmission of the virus.

The CDC even changed longstanding definitions of "vaccine" and "immunity" to fit their new narrative.

Now they want you to believe vaccines don't stop the transmission of a virus or prevent infection. They claim mRNA vaccines just lessen your symptoms.

Imagine if the polio vaccine was an mRNA vaccine.

A Brazilian diver who competed at the 2016 Rio Olympics died Tuesday of a lung infection. He was 32.

Ian Matos was influenced by British diver Tom Daley who inspired him to come out as gay in 2014.

Matos rejected his friends' advice to stay in the closet until after the 2016 Olympics.

He didn't want to keep his boyfriend hidden or miss the LGBT+ parties at the Olympics.

"From a young age, I knew I was gay, but it was here that I got to live my sexuality," Matos said.

Matos celebrated his vaccine status in an Instagram post dated August 4, 2021.

He was diagnosed with a throat infection in October. The infection spread to his stomach and his lungs, before he died.

In November, friends and supporters raised funds to pay travel expenses for his family to travel to Rio, where Matos was hospitalized.

"Now he is dead. Thx to big Pharma," a fan wrote on Instagram.

"We are profoundly saddened to have received the news of the premature death of the Olympic diver Ian Matos, aged just 32," Brazil's Olympic Committee said in a statement.

"Team Brazil acknowledges his contribution to the evolution of the discipline. Our sincere condolences to his family and friends."
