Jenna Jameson has defended Joe Rogan in the wake of allegations that he published COVID falsehoods on his Spotify podcast. In protest of Spotify’s decision to keep The Joe Rogan Experience on the air, a number of musicians and podcasters, including Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and Nils Lofgren, are pulling their work from the platform.
On Thursday, Jameson, who has been in the hospital for weeks with an unknown illness, shared a message to her Instagram story. The 47-year-old was initially diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome, but her partner later stated that this was a mistake and that physicians were running additional testing.
I stand with @joerogan. Don’t let them silence you!
When Jameson first announced her GBS diagnosis to her Instagram followers, some wondered if it was related to the COVID immunization. The Johnson & Johnson shot has been linked to GBS as a extremely rare side event. In a follow-up video, Jameson stated, “I did not get the jab or any jab.”
COVID-19 vaccinations, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are safe. Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna are both safe and effective. In most cases, mRNA vaccinations are favored over Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.
For weeks, there has been a row over Rogan’s podcast, which is Spotify’s most popular show, with an estimated 11 million listeners every episode. Hundreds of academics and medical professionals issued an open letter to Netflix in January, accusing the company of repeatedly spreading misleading and inaccurate statements.
