This is not the first time Elle has raised eyebrows among people online. Last year, she shocked her fans by promoting a vaccination campaign led by her boyfriend, Andrew Wakefield.

Elle allegedly went on stage in front of an audience in North Carolina in the United States to promote an anti-wax propaganda video, saying the coronavirus pandemic is a “divine time” to discuss the dangerous idea.

In recordings obtained by Daily Mail, Elle told Andrew at the event: “You made this movie during COVID, and it’s interesting because it’s such a beautiful, sacred timing when you watch the movie, because it’s so relevant and so relevant. … And for it to come in this divine time where vaccination and compulsory vaccination are on everyone’s lips. ”

Fans responded on social media, telling Elle not to be “so irresponsible” and to promote Andrew’s message.
