Eric Clapton’s Daughter Ruth Responds To Brian May’s Criticism Of Her Father
The daughter of Eric Clapton, Ruth Clapton, has commented on Brian May’s thoughts on her father with a recent tweet.
As you may know, Eric Clapton recently made it to the headlines after announcing that he will not perform in any venue that requires proof of vaccination. He claimed that the reason behind this was that he thinks it discriminates the audience. Following that, his daughter Ruth supported Clapton’s decision and claimed that her father is not an anti-vaxxer but an anti-no-choice.
Recently, Brian May also commented on Clapton’s decision in an interview on Independent. He said that he respects Clapton’s decisions, although they have their disagreements. May then commented on the stance of the anti-vax people and claimed that the vaccination is an effective force against the pandemic. He also looked down on the anti-vax people and the conspiracy theories about this matter.
Brian May said in the interview that:
“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. 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.”
Upon hearing Brian May’s criticism of Eric Clapton, his daughter Ruth responded on her Twitter. As a reply to a tweet by Rolling Stone on this issue, Ruth said once again that Clapton is not anti-vax, but he is anti-no-choice. She then questioned people’s confusion over this.
Ruth Clapton’s tweet read:
“He is not anti-vax, he’s anti-no-choice. Why is everyone so confused about this?!”
