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. Joe Rogan has been controversial for a long time, but it seems he continues to draw the ire of fans yet again.
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. Joe Rogan took a week-long absence from his podcast at Spotify as he was blasted for accusations that he openly welcomed false public health information on his show.
Joe Rogan recently claimed that he never used the n-word to be racist after getting blasted by numerous fans and celebrities alike. Even the CEO of Spotify condemned him for his racist comments.
While speaking on the TimboSugarShow podcast, UFC star Sean O’Malley gave his take on Joe Rogan’s current controversy. O’Malley defended Joe Rogan against all the racism accusations, stating that Rogan is not racist whatsoever.
“The amount of hours we’ve heard him talk, or commentate, he’s clearly not a racist person.”
Even The Rock reversed his support of Joe Rogan after learning about his use of the n-word. Spotify also removed over 70 episodes of Joe Rogan’s podcast so far. Joe Rogan will continue to face the consequences of his past actions for the time being from the looks of it.
