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.
Joe Rogan even had a bizarre heated discussion regarding COVID-19 vaccines with CNN’s Sanjay Gupta last year. Recently, Joe Rogan was also called out by doctors for spreading misinformation as many wanted him to be censored for good.
While speaking on The Fighter and The Kid podcast, Brendan Schaub defended Joe Rogan after many people want to cancel him. He stated that Joe Rogan does not have an agenda like bigger corporations CNN and Fox News.
“It’s like you want to shut this doctor down, which [Anthony] Fauci [Chief Medical Advisor to the President] has done over and over again. But I don’t agree with him. He tries to get them canceled. He’s notoriously known for that. But also with this it is like hold on, you want to cancel Rogan and this doctor because they don’t agree with what you’re saying? He is more qualified than you guys are… They don’t like that Rogan is this outliner who destroys all of them combined. So they’re try to censor that… Joe doesn’t have an agenda. If you watch CNN or Fox, there’s an agenda, plan or narrative that they are pushing. Joe is not.”
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. Regardless, it is unlikely Joe Rogan will get cancelled.
