After Liberals Call For Joe Rogan To Be Cancelled – Spotify’s CEO Makes The Final Call: Rogan Will Stay On Air
The “woke” left have been gunning for Joe Rogan for years. The free-thinking comedian and podcaster has more listeners than prime-time CNN. Because he doesn’t bow the knee to the establishment, they’ve sicked their Twitter mob against him time and again.
It seemed like they got close to taking him down over interviewing a wide variety of opinions about vaccines. That failed, so someone put together a video trying to make the respected host and comedian racist.
Rogan openly apologized for his past behavior, but leftists still wanted him gone. But the verdict is in. From Fox News:
Spotify will not be “silencing” Joe Rogan after a video compilation of him repeatedly using the “n-word” surfaced this week, the company’s chief executive officer said…
“While I strongly condemn what Joe has said and I agree with his decision to remove past episodes from our platform, I realize some will want more. And I want to make one point very clear – I do not believe that silencing Joe is the answer.”
Spotify, which has a multi-million dollar deal with the podcaster, announced it will not end its contract with Joe Rogan. While they acknowledged the controversy triggered by angry leftists, they said “silencing” Joe is not the answer.
Let’s be real, here. Neither Spotify, nor any other platform, can silence Joe Rogan. The man has a following in the tens of millions. He is beloved and respected by people all over the world, from various professions and walks of life. If Spotify was dumb enough to cancel their contract with him, he’d just go back to being independent.
Or, another platform would pick him up. Spotify knows this. They also know just how many listeners and subscribers Joe brings in on a daily basis. And they’re not about to kill this golden goose.
The woke left made a huge mistake. They seemed to assume that a podcast was just like a network TV show or movie. They thought they could cancel Joe Rogan like they canceled Gina Carano or Kevin Hart. Apparently, the geniuses behind cancel culture are establishment dinosaurs that don’t understand the Internet.
Spotify is not Hollywood. Joe Rogan doesn’t need them, they need Joe Rogan. So, while they can hem and haw all day long about him saying the “N-word” in the past, they can’t really do anything about it.
Perhaps this marks the beginning of the end of cancel culture? After all, they can’t cancel you if you don’t let them.
- The woke mob tried to cancel Joe Rogan over old episodes.
- Spotify refused to end its contract over the controversy.
- Joe Rogan has the largest podcast in the world, dwarfing CNN.
