Hundreds of Experts Blasts Spotify – Targeting Joe Rogan to Stop
A group of 270 doctors, researchers, doctors and experts have written an open letter to Spotify to address Joe Rogan. The UFC commentator is heavily criticized for his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE) where he is said to spread “false and socially harmful claims”.
The open letter urges Spotify to “establish a clear and public policy to moderate incorrect information on its platform.”
The expert group is especially aiming for an episode where Rogan is visited by Dr. Robert Malone (episode # 1757). The episode is criticized for “promoting unfounded conspiracy theories” and has become the latest in a series of controversial eposides on the JRE.
UFC commentator Rogan is one of the top faces in MMA but has in recent years come to find more and more success with his podcast. Rogan’s podcast is the largest in the world but has become a source of controversy over the years. Rogan has been accused of flirting with the far right and being transphobic, but it is during the pandemic that he received the most attention.

Rogan got covid last year and went out openly with the cocktail of drugs he used to recover quickly. The UFC commentator mentioned, among other things, the controversial drug ivermectin, something that received a strong reaction from, among others, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
– Throughout the covid 19 pandemic, Joe Rogan has repeatedly spread misleading and false claims on his podcast, which has provoked distrust of science and medicine, it says in the open letter. He has advised against vaccination in adolescents and children, wrongly claimed that mRNA vaccines are “gene therapy”, promoted the illicit use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19 (contrary to FDA warnings) and spread a number of unfounded conspiracy theories.
The letter also states that Malone is one of two guests at Rogan who compared the current covid policy to the Holocaust.
