Andrea Bordeaux Says She “Was Fired” From ‘Run the World’ Over Vaccine Mandate

Andrea Bordeaux has rejected rumors that she voluntarily left her job as Ella McFair on Run the World before season two due to a vaccination obligation, claiming that she was dismissed.

Bordeaux addressed reports that she chose to leave the Starz series after she and the show’s studio, Lionsgate TV, were unable to reach an agreement regarding accommodations to the production’s COVID protocols, which include a full vaccination mandate for cast and crew working in Zone A, in a lengthy message posted to her Instagram account late Friday.

Bordeaux said that it was a decision to stand firm in her values and honest a basic principle after contesting that her reservations about the mandate and discussions about accommodations led to her agreeable resignation.

“My heart is with all of the people around the world who feel that they are losing so much due to their choice to stand in their convictions and to honor their deepest core beliefs,” she wrote. ‘What I know for certain is that when you are leading with your heart and honoring the path that Spirit has laid out for you, nothing can be taken away that will not be returned 1000 fold. I surrender to that with profound Peace and Joy and I encourage you to do the same.”
