The Joe Rogan Spotify saga continues. One of the most popular podcasts in the world has been under fire recently after multiple artists and celebrities complained about the "misinformation" Joe Rogan has been releasing to the world.
The "Joe Rogan Experience" boasts roughly 190 million downloads each month, and it's become one of the most iconic podcasts to have ever aired. But not everyone has been happy with the show's growth. Artists like Neil Young and Joni Mitchell have pulled their music from Spotify in protest against Joe's content, and that was just beginning.
Joe Rogan Is Under Attack for His Content and Past Remarks
Joe is being accused of spreading "misinformation" on his podcast because he dared to interview doctors such as Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Robert Malone about the coronavirus pandemic and how it has been handled across the U.S. When that attack didn't seem to shrink his popularity, the woke mob took it a step further and accused him of being racist because old videos surfaced of Joe using the n-word as a joke or while quoting someone else.
Joe released a sincere apology video in response to his past remarks. "It's not my word to use," he said. He hopes this "can be a teachable moment" and he can grow from it.
But no matter how much Joe apologizes, we all know that the mob will never stop coming after him – because he's a free agent who refuses to abide by their intersectional rules. Even though Spotify hasn't shown any indication of kicking Joe off their platform, they have removed 113 of his episodes as of February 7. These episodes feature guests such as Michael Malice, Alex Jones, Chris D'Elia, and Gavin McIness. This kind of censorship proves that Spotify does in fact control his content, even if they don't kick him off the platform entirely.
Rumble Offered Joe Rogan a $100 Million Contract
As a response to the censorship being dished out by Spotify, the online video platform Rumble publicly offered Joe a $100 million four-year contract to break up with Spotify once and for all.
"We stand with you, your guests, and your legion of fans in desire for real conversation," Rumble said in a letter they tweeted. "So we'd like to offer you 100 million reasons to make the world a better place. How about you bring all your shows to Rumble, both old and new, with no censorship, for 100 million bucks over four years?"
The note is signed by the CEO, Chris Pavlovski. "Yes, this is totally legit," the letter concludes.
Joe has yet to respond, but plenty of people in the comment section are egging him on to accept the offer. The tweet has more than 64,000 likes already. Well, the ball is in Joe's court.
