And I could see it then, once I kind of started to look for it, I saw it everywhere."

previously denounced what he described as pro-vaccine"propaganda" in a letter last year, claimed that"mass hypnosis" explained trust in vaccines. Clapton said that he did not understand why his family and friends were"scared" by his COVID-19 views before he received a"memo" informing him that others had been hypnotized into believing the scientific consensus using methods like"subliminal advertising" on YouTube. "I thought ... what's going on here?" Clapton said."I didn't get the memo. Whatever the memo was, it hadn't reached me. Then I stopped and realized there was really a memo.

The safety and efficacy of the vaccines are backed up by research and data that are not dependent on any kind of hypnosis or psychosis. However, Desmet's mass formation psychosis theory does not appear to be backed by credible evidence. The theory was recently discredited by multiple experts and researchers cited in a fact- checking article from the Associated Press. John Drury, a social psychologist at the U.K.'s University of Sussex, told the outlet that"no respectable psychologist agrees with these ideas." Clapton also received backlash after releasing a song titled"Stand and Deliver" alongside Van Morrison in 2020. The song slammed the U.K. government's lockdown restrictions as attacks on personal freedoms and compared following the public health measures to willingly being"a slave." Criticism of the song resulted in the
