UFC commentator and analyst Joe Rogan publishes a very successful podcast called The Joe Rogan Experience. JRE is known for bringing all kinds of people to come and discuss the weirdest topics with absolutely no filters.
Rogan came under fire after criticizing the effectiveness of the government-approved Coronavirus vaccine. The entire medical community has followed suit, and many doctors from all over the world have signed an open letter to remove its content from the platform. Joe issued a public apology for his statement and things were about to go cold.
Rogan thought he had survived, but a video of him saying the N-word surfaced online and the singer India Arie once again set off the ‘cancel Rogan’ moment. Rogan said that the video was really old and he realized that he had made a big mistake, that he had grown as a person now and apologized for hurting anyone’s feelings.
Despite controversy over Joe Rogan and his departure from Russia, Spotify had a profitable quarter
Many MMA fighters came to support Rogan and claimed that people did nonsense just because he was speaking his mind and was famous. Israel Adesanya slammed the entire cancellation culture and stood behind Rogan during this event. They removed many parts of “JRE” from the platform, but their CEOs refused to ban it from the platform.
