The Aussie actress was only named as the ambassador for the charity, that champions equal rights for young girls, last month, but the organisation has since confirmed the ambassadorship has ended.
“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,” a statement on the organisation’s official Twitter account read.
Thank you for your message. 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.— Plan International Australia (@PlanAustralia) April 15, 2020
Isabel was first called out earlier in the week after saying she “didn't trust the path of vaccination” - the comment coming in response to an Instagram post by controversial TV chef Pete Evans.
“Freedom of choice is every humans right. I don’t trust the path of vaccination,” she wrote on Instagram.
After parting ways with the charity, Isabel, who is a known anti-vaxxer, took to her Instagram account again to try and ‘clarify’ the ‘misunderstanding’.
“I have concerns around 'mandatory' vaccination, not vaccination itself,” she explained.
“Moving forward, I'd like to welcome and invite cohesive, clear and calm communication around 'mandatory' vaccines, ethical vaccine testing and how to support every human being to have the right to freedom of choice.”
Isabel joins a host of other stars that have faced backlash online for voicing controversial opinions during the current coronavirus crisis.
MAFS stars have found themselves being ridiculed online this week after a bizarre number appear to subscribe to unsubstantiated conspiracy theories around the introduction of 5G and coronavirus.
Former stars of the series including Hayley Vernon, Amanda Micallef, as well as Bachelor alumn Bill Goldsmith have promoted anti-5G content on their social media accounts, with some even linking the new internet connection to the coronavirus.
