JOE ROGAN RESPONDS TO THE LATEST CONTROVERSY – APOLOGIZE TO SPOTIFY!
UFC commentator Joe Rogan has been in the hot air lately because of his podcast on Spotify.
The Joe Rogan Experience is one of the largest podcasts in the world and has been exclusively available on Spotify since 2020. In recent weeks, however, Rogan has been heavily criticized for the content of his show. The criticism comes mainly from the fact that Rogan invited two polarizing guests on two occasions: Dr. Robert Malone and Dr. Peter McCullough.
Among other things, Malone’s visit resulted in an open letter to Spotify in which 270 people with a background in medicine, research and medical care called on the platform to “establish a clear and public policy to moderate incorrect information on its platform.”
Music artist Neil Young also came to criticize Spotify and urged them to choose between him or Rogan. Spotify chose to remove Young’s music from its platform and since then, more musicians have followed in Young’s footsteps, including Joni Mitchell.
In a long video to his 14 million followers, Rogan addressed the recent controversies. Rogan said, among other things, that he feels that “many people have a distorted view of what I do.”
– [My podcast] has been accused of spreading dangerous misinformation, specifically about two episodes. One with Dr Peter McCullough and one with Dr Malone. Dr. McCullough is a cardiologist and he is the most published physician in history in his field.
– Dr Malone owns nine patents on the creation of mRNA vaccine technology and is at least partly responsible for the creation of the technology that led to [the creation of] mRNA vaccines. Both of these people are highly competent, very intelligent and very talented people, and they have an opinion that differs from the main steam narrative. I wanted to hear what they thought.
Rogan explained that he sees himself as a person who invites people and listens to them. The veteran commentator also said that he does not know if, for example, Malone and McCullough are right in their statements.
Joe Rogan apologizes to Spotify
Rogan’s podcast receives an estimated eleven million listeners per episode and has become a power house in alternative media. However, that was far from the case when Rogan began his podcast at the end of 2009.
– It has become what it is today, which is a monster beyond control that I barely have control over, Rogan said. Often I have no idea what to talk about until I sit down and talk to people. I will do my best in the future to balance things.
– I want to thank Spotify for being so supportive during this time, and I am very sorry that this is happening to them and that they get so much (criticism) from this.
