Unless you’ve been turning off your smartphone and computer, you are probably aware of the issues that Joe Rogan found himself in the middle of lately. As we’ve also reported, he’s been involved in massive scandals for a while now, and this has been happening since he made a particular podcast.
We keep living under the sign of the novel coronavirus for more than two years now. Even though this nightmare seems to get closer and closer to its end, the headlines all over the world still include the dreadful subject.
Unfortunately, during such times, freedom of speech has been suffering and censorship is showing its massive strength all over the world.
Rogan’s podcast that set fire to the Internet
You are probably aware of the fact that Rogan has been making headlines all over the place, and this has been happening following the recent interview that he had with dr. Robert Malone about covid-related subjects.
The mRNA vaccine expert/inventor, dr. Robert Malone went on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast to raise concerns over the covid 19 vaccines and also to touch a bunch of other interesting related issues.
This episode was the one that unleashed hell. The backlash that Rogan saw became terrifying.
Joe Rogan under attack
Recently, Rogan apologized after a video was shared online showing him using racial slurs, despite Rogan’s assertion that he was quoting others.
“It’s not my word to use. I am well aware of that now, but for years I used it in that manner,” Rogan said.
He’s been also urged by more people to drop Spotify, and the platform has also been pressured to drop Rogan’s work.
It’s also important to mention the fact that Spotify CEO Daniel Ek released a statement on Sunday, announcing that the streaming service would stand by the podcast host.
“While I strongly condemn what Joe has said and I agree with his decision to remove past episodes from our platform, I realize some will want more. And I want to make one point very clear – I do not believe that silencing Joe is the answer,” Ek said.
