Brian May takes jab at Eric Clapton, calling anti-vaxxers "fruitcakes"

10/08/2021

Queen guitarist Brian May is one of many artists who has disapproved of Eric Clapton's anti-vaccine rhetoric and refusal to perform at any concert venue that requires fans to be vaccinated.

May expresses that whilst he still respects Clapton, he is aware that they have two very different views on things.

I love Eric Clapton, he’s my hero, but he has very different views from me in many ways. He’s a person who thinks it’s OK to shoot animals for fun, so we have our disagreements, but I would never stop respecting the man.

May continues.

Anti-vax people, I’m sorry, I think they’re fruitcakes.

There’s plenty of evidence to show that vaccination helps. On the whole, they’ve been very safe. There’s always going to be some side effect in any drug you take, but to go around saying vaccines are a plot to kill you, I’m sorry, that goes in the fruitcake jar for me.
