Joe Rogan Calls N-Word Compilation a "Political Hit Job"

 


Comment Below 


Joe Rogan's latest public relations nightmare has caused quite the rift between conservatives and liberals. In one corner, there are those who seem to fully support his unpopular viewpoints, such as Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, and Candance Owens. And in the opposing corner, there are recording artists with liberal perspectives, such as Neo-Soul singer India.Arie and Neil Young, who have publicly opposed Joe Rogan's presence on Spotify because of the misinformation that he spread about COVID on his widely popular podcast. 

Perhaps the most notable aspect of the recent firestorm of criticism that Joe Rogan has come under was the viral N-Word compilation that was reposted India.Arie last week on social media. Although Joe Rogan has addressed the video and apologized for his poor choice of words, he's never been one to take proverbial punches lying down. In fact, he's made no bones about his displeasure with left-wing politicians like AOC and Kamala Harris in the past. Therefore, when UFC's polarizing color commentator took to the airwaves on his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, he called the compilation video "a political hit job."

"This is a political hit job," Joe Rogan said. "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."
