A statement on Wednesday from Plan International Australia, a charity fighting for equality for young girls, revealed via Twitter that Lucas would no longer be working with them – 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
'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.'
Earlier this week Pete Evans faced huge backlash by promoting a special lamp – with a price tag of $15,000 – which he claimed could fight coronavirus. His claims were swiftly slammed by the Australian Medical Association.
Evans even went on to claim that his family use the 'hybrid subtle energy revitalisation platform' every day.
'It works to optimise your health, wellness, and athletic performance by aligning and balancing the energy of every cell in your body,' he claimed.
Evans also said the lamp is programmed with thousands of recipes with 'a couple on there for Wuhan coronavirus that you may be interested in'.
There is zero evidence that Pete’s lamp has an effect on the virus.
