MSNBC Host Joy-Ann Reid called out rock and roll icon Eric Clapton Monday for his stance on anti-vaxxers. Reid mocked Clapton and anti-vaxxers for “act[ing] like their freedom has been taken from them.” Her comments come after Clapton donated a van and £1,000 to a British anti-vaccine group.
“What really stands out about white anti-vaxxers, in particular, is that they act like their freedom has been taken from them,” Reid said. “And they have this weird habit of trying to do that by co-opting the history of actually oppressed people.” Reid featured Clapton in a segment called “The Absolute Worst.”
On November the 5th, 2021 the founder of Jam for Freedom, Cambel McLaughin, will head to court for hosting a gathering larger than 30 people. Now, their funds are used to help pay for court fees. According to their website, funds also go to “any expenses incurred on the road as we tour non-stop in aid of liberty, mental health and medical choice.”
With Clapton’s donation, the organization has only raised £2,680.

Nebraska woman who detransitioned sues doctors who facilitated removal of ‘healthy breasts’ when she was a teen battling mental health
Nebraska woman Luka Hein is suing Nebraska Medicine, the Nebraska Medical Center, and University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) Physicians who facilitated in her gender transition when she was a teenager; Hein has since detransitioned.
Hein, who is being represented by the Center for American Liberty, filed the suit last week, for removal of her healthy breasts when she was a depressed teenager who struggled with mental health.
“Proceeding straight to breast amputation in a depressed, anxiety-ridden, gender-confused adolescent, who was incapable of understanding the lasting consequences of her decision, constitutes negligence for which Defendants are jointly and severally liable,” the lawsuit states.
Fox News reports:
Throughout adolescence, Hein struggled with her mental health and traumatic experiences, including being allegedly groomed and threatened by an adult man. She had serious mental-health struggles at age 13. By 15 she was diagnosed with “gender identity disorder” and put on a fast track to have her breasts removed, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit claims that despite Hein’s history, doctors rushed her into gender transition without considering her psychological comorbidities. It says the defendants used deceptive euphemisms and unscientific terminology to sell gender-transition procedures to Hein.
For instance, their use of the phrase “masculinizing hormone therapy” was misleading as the process does not heal the patient but does “inflict harm that causes malfunctioning and malformation of the teenage body and brain,” according to the lawsuit. Testosterone injections, which Hein received as part of her attempted sex change, can cause many negative side effects including high blood pressure and permanent bodily changes such as the development of an Adam’s apple, deepening of the voice, abnormal hair growth, and male pattern balding of the scalp.
The lawsuit says defendants were also negligent in other ways, such as in their shifting from a standard medical diagnosis to the “affirming care” model, which embraces a person’s gender delusion as fact and discourages questioning.
Allegedly one doctor, Nahia J. Amoura, was prepared to go even further. “About a year after starting Luka on testosterone, Dr. Amoura recommended to Luka that she surgically remove her uterus in a partial hysterectomy as the next step in her ‘transition,’” the lawsuit states. The hysterectomy would have permanently sterilized Hein and created hormonal imbalances that would have required long-term medical follow-ups.
