Freedom of speech is a fundamental right in several countries all over the world. However, that has been proven wrong in various instances as social media has shown that it dictates what can be said and what cannot.
It seems Joe Rogan is now facing some censorship issues of his own. According to Digital Music News, around 42 interviews have been removed from the library of episodes that Joe Rogan’s podcast has on Spotify.
The majority of these interviews touch upon very controversial topics. Among the list of censored guests include the founder of the “Proud Boys” Gavin McInnes, as well comedian Chris D’ Elia. In the case of D’ Elia, it is the matter of the accusations that he is facing that has blacklisted him.
Joe Rogan had previously admitted that he was aware of being censored since last year. Rogan had signed an exclusive deal with Spotify to host episodes of his podcast on the platform and was more than ready to pay him a ludicrous 100 million dollars for the exclusive rights to the show.
Due to this, one can assume that Rogan certainly isn’t against the censorship of his show. We wonder whether other podcasts have faced similar censorship of this nature due to the guests that have appeared on them.
