Helena Howard Canceled
Towards the January of 2021, Helena was supposedly canceled. She had posted a few anti-vaccination posts on her Instagram. Also, she did say something that some people could interpret as xenophobic, especially towards China.
There were also accusations of her being an ableist, but we could not find any evidence of that. And her brother was autistic, which she used as her defense against those accusations. The reason behind the ableist accusations was her statement that she did not want to label Nora, the autistic character she played in The Wilds.
Also, the fact that her mother used to think COVID was a hoax was used to attack her by some people on social media.
Helena had come out on Instagram to defend herself and to try and stop people from attacking her. Of course, true to the usual internet trends, that move backfired. And that video was further used against her.
Eventually, Helena deleted her Instagram account. And her Twitter account was also suspended. We do not know the exact reasons for her suspension. You can read the whole cancellation reason thread here.
