Joe Rogan keeps getting blasted by celebrities worldwide for controversial takes, especially now that he is making headlines when a montage of him saying N-word multiple times went viral on the Internet. Trevor Noah decided to chime in on the US podcast host’s latest N-word controversy.
Not too long ago, late January this year, comedian Noah Trevor mocked Joe Rogan when he made comments about what it means to be black. Well, he has done it again. Trevor had some amusing choice of words for the controversial podcast host:
“If there’s ever a video of you saying the ‘N-word’ that many times.” . “you’d better pray one of two things. Either you’re a Black person or you’re a dead person from history. Because then the worst thing they can do is take your statue down and move it into a museum.”
Trevor did not only condemn that, but he also ridiculed Rogan over his “Planet of Apes” remark. Noah referred to the video shared by songwriter India Arie, where Rogan told a story about seeing the movie Planet of the Apes in a Black neighborhood.
“We walked into Planet of the Apes, we walked into Africa,” UFC commentator says in the clip. Noah called this “O.G. racism” and goes on to add, “That video’s so bad it actually made me miss the ‘N-word’ video.”
American podcaster said in his apology video that the montage was “the most regretful and shameful thing that I’ve ever had to talk about publicly.” Rogan also addressed Planet of Apes remarks saying he was “trying to make the story entertaining and I said: ‘We got out, and it was like we were in Africa, like we were in Planet of the Apes.”
“I’m not going to lie. I have a few issues with this part of the video. First of all, he says he would never say Black people are apes but he said that. That’s literally what he said.” ,”If you said you walked into a Black place and it was Planet of the Apes then you’ve said that. You did say it, which is racist, right?”, the national TV comedian said going off on Rogan’s apology video.
“And it’s not just racist. Let’s be honest, that’s like O.G. racism. That’s like the original old school. That’s on the Mount Rushmore of racism. Black people are apes. It’s right next to burning crosses and every Bugs Bunny cartoon from the 1940s.”
Joe Rogan has deleted the podcast episode where he said the things mentioned above, except the apology. It seems like Joe Rogan just can’t catch a break with celebrities blasting him left and right.
