    Supporters of the QAnon theory believe there is a group of Democrats and Hollywood celebrities who worship Satan and are engaged in cannibalistic rituals. Members of this alleged cult are paedophiles and run a sex trafficking ring. Supporters of the theory also believe that Donald Trump has been waging a war against this group of people.

    Actor Jim Caviezel has caused a stir on social media after he promoted a conspiracy theory at the "Health and Freedom Conference" in Tulsa, Oklahoma, while speaking about his new movie "Sound of Freedom", which tells the story of a former US special agent, Tim Ballard.

    Ballard, who has reportedly become very popular among QAnon supporters, has created two organisations that combat human and sex trafficking, with a special focus on children, also helping persecuted religious minorities. Caviezel said the activist was supposed to appear with him at the conference, but was off "saving children".

    "They [activists] are pulling kids out of darkest recesses of Hell right now", the star of Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ said, before adding that Ballard and his supporters save children from adrenochroming.

    The host of the conference then asked the actor to elaborate on the issue. Caviezel said the following:

    "I’ll just simplify it: when you are scared, you produce adrenaline, if you’re an athlete and you get in the fourth quarter, you have adrenaline that comes out of you. If a child knows he’s going to die, his body will secrete this adrenaline."

    ​After snippets of the video were posted online, it went viral, with the actor trending on social media. However, many netizens were appalled by his remarks.

    ​Some users said they stopped liking the actor.

    ​Others simply called Caviezel crazy.

    ​However, there were also those who praised the actor for speaking what they believe is the "truth".

    ​Some users claimed that the adrenochroming of children is real.
