Joe Rogan has been dealing with a lot of controversy as of late. While initially he was being targeted for his views on how to deal with COVID-19, now he’s been cancelled for using the N-word on his podcast over and over again.

Rogan has been very critical of political figures in the past, including former President Donald Trump. Now Trump has now emerged as an unlikely supporter of the UFC commentator. He even issued a statement on Twitter through spokesperson Liz Harrington. The former POTUS told Rogan not to make himself vulnerable by apologizing.

Joe Rogan is an interesting and popular guy, but he’s got to stop apologizing to the Fake News and Radical Left maniacs and lunatics.

Donald Trump urged Joe Rogan to not let people make him look weak and frightened. He also urged Rogan to do what he does best and not pay any heed to people.

How many ways can you say you’re sorry? Joe, just go about what you do so well and don’t let them make you look weak and frightened. That’s not you and it never will be!

Joe Rogan ended up being swarmed with controversy after Grammy Award winning singer India Arie shared a video of Rogan saying the N-word in total of 24 times. However, Rogan tried to make up for his mistake and apologized for it while explaining the context. He said that it was “the most regretful and shameful thing that I’ve ever had to talk about publicly.”

The Rock had previously endorsed Joe Rogan with his support, but backtracked after finding the controversial clip. The next few weeks for Joe Rogan will be difficult, as this has led to a newer, negative turn in his situation with Spotify.
