People Reckon Aussie Actor Isabel Lucas Just Likened Pete Evans To Jesus And JFK
Australian actor Isabel Lucas has gone on a free speech rant on Instagram and many believe she's referencing someone in particular.
Disgraced celebrity chef Pete Evans was recently booted off Instagram after sharing posts spreading misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccinations.
It follows him also being ditched by Facebook and Spotify for the same reason.
This is where Lucas, who you may remember as Tasha Hunter from iconic Aussie soap Home and Away, comes in.
Taking to Instagram, thee 36-year-old went on a bizarre tirade about censorship and how famous people in history were also silenced. While she didn't mention Pete Evans directly, many believe her words of support were directed at the former My Kitchen Rules co-host and co-judge.
She began with the quote: "I do not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
She then ranted about attacks against 'freedom of speech'.
"I have been wanting to speak about freedom of speech and censorship here for a long time," she wrote.
"If you are feeling cautious to ask worthy questions because of what bullies, or those who lack insight or compassion might say, may you remember the words of Evelyn Beatrice Hall.
"May you be inspired by the countless courageous ones who have expressed their truth in the face of adversity: Rosa May Parks, John F Kennedy, Robert F Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr, Eddie Mabo, Malcolm X, Joan of Arc, Nikola Tesla, Julian Assange, Socrates, Jesus, John Lennon, Hypatia, Nelson Mandela, Maya Angelou, Michael Leunig, Waris Dirie, thousands of women, called 'witches' ... and countless others."

"Facebook, Instagram accounts are being removed, shadowbanned and numerous YouTube videos deleted," she said.
The actor added that removing content that went against the platform's mainstream narratives' stops 'humanitarians' from shedding light on 'uncomfortable truths'.
It's not the first time Lucas has publicly supported Evans. In April last year, she angered her followers after she commented on a post of his about vaccinations.
Evans had posted about his concerns about getting vaccinated for Covid-19 and Lucas supported him while saying people should have 'freedom of choice'.
Vaccinations have been proven time and time again to be one of the most effective ways of preventing unnecessary death from treatable diseases.
Decades' worth of research from across the world has confirmed that these jabs have helped prevent millions of people from getting sick and dying.
But Lucas isn't only worried about vaccinations. She's also revealed herself to be worried about the rollout of the 5G network.
She wrote on Instagram in another post: "Why have we, the people, not been given the choice if we want this in our communities or not?
"When the community uses its voice it is clear that - the power is with the people, not with the people in power."
She was later dumped as the ambassador for charity Plan Australia as a result of the controversial posts.
