The past few weeks have been quite a rough ride for long-time UFC commentator Joe Rogan. Being the main subject of controversy, he attracted mockery from celebrities and personalities around the world.
Rogan initially went into headlines for his takes on the covid vaccine and soon followed by a video of him saying N-word multiple times going viral on social media. His podcast is hosted on the popular streaming service Spotify. However, due to the grave nature of controversies surrounding him, Spotify removed over 70 episodes from his podcast.
Rogan has since apologized for both controversies. Spotify CEO, Daniel Ek, decided not to censor Joe Rogan as he says it’s not the answer.
Right-wing platform Rumble was in the news amid this controversy after they offered American Podcaster $100 million to move the Joe Rogan Experience podcast from Spotify. He is signed to Spotify for the same amount.
As reported by Hollywood Reporter Joe Rogan told the crowd in during his recent standup show;
“No, Spotify has hung in with me, inexplicably, let’s see what happens,”
“We stand with you, your guests, and your legion of fans in desire for real conversation,” Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski wrote in the open letter to Rogan. “And yes, this is totally legit.” A tweet with the letter attached also said “we are ready to fight alongside you.”
Joe Rogan made it pretty clear he has no intention to join Rumble, an online video platform that has become a hub for many known right-wing content creators.
