Earlier this week, Plan International Australia, a charity fighting for equality for young girls, revealed via Twitter that Lucas would no longer be working with them in light of her comments surrounding coronavirus – the news comes less than one month after the actress was signed up as an ambassador.
'Are you aware your ambassador, actress Isabel Lucas, is one of these conspiracy theorists stoking fears during this crisis? She's also anti-vaccination... go figure.' A user wrote on the charity’s Twitter page.
Plan International Australia replied: 'We are aware of the issues and as of today, Ms Lucas and Plan International have come to a mutual agreement to end the ambassadorship.'
On March 27, Lucas revealed she was proudly partnering with the charity.
'As we head into an uncertain future and particularly as COVID-19 is starting to impact the countries where Plan International works, it's more important than ever before to support the work, particularly protecting girls in crisis and facilitating hygiene kits for families,' she said.
'It inspires me that Plan International empowers girls to speak up and to know their rights and that they work with girls at different stages: from girlhood, to adulthood.'
Discussing the COVID-19 pandemic on social media, Lucas said she 'didn't trust the path of vaccination', while pro surfer Taj Burrow backed her up, stating that vaccines are 'not needed' to fight the virus, which has caused a global pandemic.
