Actress Letitia Wright, best known for her role as Shuri in Marvel’s “Black Panther” and the “Avengers” films, has called out the media for deliberately leaving out parts of her interviews where she speaks about her faith.
In a sarcastic and mocking tweet, the actress called journalists or interviewers “cute” for leaving out parts of her interview where she credits God for her success.
It’s super cute when journalists/interviewers for magazines leave out the massive part where I give God the glory for the success/ achievements in my life.
Haha I still love you and God will still be praised 🙏🏾💜

The “Avengers: Infinity War” star took it upon herself use her personal social media account to repeat what the journalists allegedly edited out. “God will still be praised,” she said.
It is unclear which journalist or interviewer Wright was referring to, but a feature on her came out on Harper’s Bazaar just a few days after her tweet. The magazine hailed her as one of their “Women of the Year” for 2019. while the feature spoke extensively about her recent success, there was no mention of her faith and gratitude to God. It remains to be revealed if this is the interview from which massive sections have been deleted.
The British actress has spoken about her faith on numerous occasions. According to FOX News, her faith took center stage when she gave her acceptance speech upon receiving the “Rising Star” award at the BAFTA Awards (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) earlier this year.
“I can’t get up here without thanking God,” she said. Wright also went on to say that she had become depressed at one point and was on the verge of quitting the industry. “The only thing that pretty much pulled me out of that was God, my belief, my faith, my family, and an email from BAFTA saying they wanted me to be a part of the BAFTA Breakthrough Brits, and I was like, ‘let me try again.'”
