I think a lot of that is peer pressure/social media pressure, which most people are susceptible to. They don't want to be seen to buck the trend.

Also cognitive dissonance is everywhere. You see medical doctors who also provide homeopathic remedies, despite knowing from their education that they can't work, for example.

Sometimes people don't think to question something because they were told it by an agent they perceive as an authority.
