UFC commentator Joe Rogan has faced a lot of trials and tribulations throughout his career. He also has one of the most popular podcasts on Spotify. Rogan recently blasted those who believed Conor McGregor’s career in UFC was finished. His controversial take on the pandemic is also newsworthy at times.
Joe Rogan revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19 and used a controversial farm animal drug to treat it. Ivermectin is a livestock dewormer drug that the CDC and the FDA have specifically warned against as a remedy to battle COVID-19.
While speaking on the Joe Rogan Experience, he was joined by CNN’s Sanjay Gupta as they had a bizarre heated discussion regarding COVID-19 vaccines. Rogan stated that he isn’t against vaccines and claimed that he made an appointment to get vaccinated but didn’t show up. Rogan then presented a theory to Gupta that it utterly baffled the journalist.
“I’m a healthy person, I exercise constantly, I’m always taking vitamins, I take care of myself.”
“I think it would be better to get the vaccine and recover and have amazing immunity … you know what I think you should do? I think you should get vaccinated and then get sick … the vaccine protects you from a bad infection and you get COVID so you get robust immunity … get vaccinated, let it wane and hang around with a bunch of dirty people.”
Joe Rogan previously threatened to sue CNN for calling Ivermectin “horse dewormer.” Rogan had also claimed that he got better after taking Ivermectin. However, perhaps it is better to take his opinion with a grain of salt and not treat COVID-19 in the same way he did. After all, no verified medical experts have condoned such a practice, especially getting COVID-19 on purpose to protect your immunity from it.
