Eric Clapton has publicly taken a stand against Covid-19 vaccines and Valerie Bertinelli has thoughts on it. Clapton announced that he would not be performing shows that require the audience to be vaccinated and said, ” I reserve the right to cancel the show.” In a letter, he said, “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021, I feel honour bound to make an announcement of my own: I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present.”

In May, Clapton was also vocal about vaccines and called evidence that vaccines are safe “propaganda.”

In response, Bertinelli shared a photo of her and ex-husband sitting with Clapton. Her caption? “Once a d**k, always a d**k.”

Do you think Clapton has a reputation for being a d**k?
