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.
Despite this, he also has his fair share of defenders, including the likes of Donald Trump. While speaking on his YouTube channel, Brian Davis, aka True Geordie talked about Joe Rogan’s current controversy. He proceeded to slam CNN for deliberately misinterpreting Joe Rogan and taking his quotes out of context.
“They’re deliberately misinterpreting Joe Rogan’s profession which is podcaster and acting like he’s a newsreader and acting like it’s his job to keep the nation informed. You know if he is wrong, so what? That’s his problem and he will lose viewers over that. That is not the job of CNN to attack… They’re clearly losing you. And why are they losing regular people? Because we don’t trust them anymore…They keep telling us one thing and telling us another and another. And when they get caught they don’t admit ‘I was wrong’ but you know who does admit they’re wrong? Joe Rogan. That’s why he’s credibility is up here and regular news is down there. It’s because they will never admit they’re wrong and we know that.”
Joe Rogan previously threatened to sue CNN for calling Ivermectin “horse dewormer. 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. It remains to be seen whether Joe Rogan will continue to get cancelled or not.
