Legendary Guitarist Set to Boycott Venues Requiring Vaccine Proof

WOW!

Published

on

With nearly half of Americans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Biden administration has hit a wall.  The folks who are left unvaccinated are, by and large, abstaining by their own decision.  They don’t want a vaccine, and they don’t believe that the federal government has any right to tell them otherwise.

But some private companies have begun suggesting that they may institute new regulations that would require customers or users to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to interact with them.  This could include some convert venues requiring that ticket holders can prove their vaccine status before seeing their favorite musical acts once they hit the road again.

Legendary blues guitarist Eric Clapton isn’t into it.  At all.

Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they have received their full vaccination from the coronavirus.

The musician and outspoken vaccine skeptic issued a statement that was highly critical of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that vaccine passes would be required to enter nightclubs and other live performance venues in light of increasing coronavirus cases.

The “Wonderful Tonight” singer issued a statement on the Telegram account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, a known COVID-19 vaccination skeptic as well. In it, he issued a direct response to Johnson’s announcement and called the situation for those who do not wish to get the vaccine discriminatory.

Slow hand” got right to the point.

“Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel the show.”

One can only imagine that there are more artists, particularly in American country music, that might make similar vows in the coming weeks.

Alec Baldwin Shoots and Kills Crew Member on Set of Latest Movie

Hollywood experts are stunned.

Published

on

Hollywood was rocked on Thursday after a nigh-unfathomable accident occurred on the set of the latest project from Alec Baldwin, and there are still plenty of questions left unanswered.

It all began when Baldwin discharged a “prop” gun on set, meant to be loaded only with blanks and dummy rounds.

Alec Baldwin allegedly repeatedly asked ‘why was I handed a hot gun?’ after he accidentally shot and killed a female cinematographer and wounded a director yesterday on the set of his new film Rust.

Halyna Hutchins, 42, died shortly after being shot by Baldwin around 1.50pm Thursday at Bonanza Creek Ranch, near the city of Santa Fe in New Mexico. Joel Souza, 48, the film’s director, was also hurt and spent several hours in hospital, but was released later the same evening.

Police have disclosed few details about the shooting, saying only that a ‘projectile’ was fired by a ‘prop gun’ and they are investigating.

At close range, even blanks can be dangerous, but it was not clear why Baldwin was pointing a gun at anyone, period.

Mike Tristano, 60, a Hollywood armorer with 30 years’ experience who spoke to the Dailymail.com, said ultimate responsibility for gun safety on movie set rests with the armorer.

The movie’s armorer or weapons master has not been been named. Sante Fe Sheriff’s Department says it will continue to interview ‘witnesses’ on Friday.

‘There should have been blanks in the gun, the on-set armorer’s job is to check that before handing the weapon over,’ Tristan said.

‘They then make sure that the actor stands on a mark and never points the gun at the crew or cast… the editing makes it seem like they were pointing at their co-actor.

‘That’s why everyone in the industry is very confused. How this happened is a total mystery at the moment.’

Baldwin has not been charged with a crime at this time, but the investigation is still ongoing.

Accused Sexual Assaulter Chris Cuomo says Trump Supporters are ‘Not Good People’

What’s the one about the glass houses and the stones?

Chris Cuomo

Well it takes one to know one, as they say.

Chris Cuomo, CNN primetime anchor and a man accused of sexually groping his former boss in 2005, has now taken a pot-shot at the entirety of the MAGA-verse, in a tone deaf rant on his television program.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said Monday during the opening of his show “Cuomo Prime Time” that Republicans were “all-in” on former President Donald Trump’s claims he won the 2020 election.

Cuomo said, “We’ve never seen one party in this damnable two-party system that we insist on go all-in on a lie. So half of your political system is invested in a lie. That’s happening. It’s not just Trump. The whole party practically backs actively or passively, selling that the election was not legitimate.”

And then…

On Democrats’ objection to elections, Cuomo said, “Questioning is different than finding no proof and then lying and refusing to certify. That’s what Trump and Co. did. There are not good people on both sides of this argument. And I will be dammed if I sit by and don’t say this as plainly as possible because this will be remembered. There are not good people on both sides. This is not a good faith dispute. It is bad faith. They know the election was not rigged. They know it was legitimate. Anyone telling you with full knowledge that they have no proof and yet the election wasn’t legit is part of an effort that may lead us to an all-time low.”

Once again, the network has proved that their editorial programming is little more than a series of purposefully-inflammatory rhetoric meant to sell commercials.
