“It’s a political hit job” … says Joe Rogan over Spotify controversy
Joe Rogan is no stranger to controversies as he recently made headlines with his statements on The Joe Rogan Experience. According to reports, Rogan used a racist slur and made insensitive comments regarding the Covid – 19 vaccinations during his previous episodes. As a result, Spotify removed 113 episodes of his podcast from the platform, though the $100 million, multi – year deal is still intact.
Joe Rogan addresses controversy
In response to the controversy, during a recent conversation with his guest, Aakash Singh, Rogan states,“In a lot of ways, this is a relief. That video (of Rogan saying the n-word in his podcast) had always been out there. This is a political hit job. They’re taking all this stuff I’ve ever said that’s wrong and smushing it all together. It’s good because it makes me address some stuff that I really wish wasn’t out there.”
“Over time, people will understand you. They know you. If you misstep, they know what you’re trying to do “ you’re not a vicious person, you’re just trying to be funny.”
Spotify CEO, Daniel Ek has responded to the reaction of a large number of people, including stars like Dwayne Johnson and Jon Stewart over Rogan’s controversial statements. Ek says, “I want to make one point very clear: I do not believe that silencing Joe is the answer. We should have clear lines around content and take action when they are crossed, but cancelling voices is a slippery slope.”
