Fans have been left furious at Joe Rogan after a “despicable” clip has resurfaced on social media.
Keep scrolling to see why people are so angry…
Though he initially started as a stand-up comedian, Rogan found his fame from becoming an MMA interviewer and commentator and went on to win the World MMA Awards’ Personality of the Year, 6 times.
The Joe Rogan Experience.
Launched in 2009, The Joe Rogan Experience is an online audio and video podcast that interviews a vast array of different celebrities and political figures.
The JRE has since grown to become one of the world’s most successful podcasts, with it receiving millions of listeners and viewers for every episode.
And reel in a variety of different guests, ranging from actors, musicians, political figures, sportsmen, authors, and beyond.
Rogan does, however, tend to avoid the more traditional interviewing methods, and instead opts for more lengthy, yet casual and relaxed conversations.
We all remember that Elon Musk interview…
Come on. You know the one. When, mid-interview, Elon casually lit a joint and puffed away on it like there was no tomorrow? Ring any bells?
Rogan has been known to dabble in a little politics from time to time. From business tycoons to presidential candidates, you can guarantee that Joe’s has had them on his show.
Earlier this year, Rogan became a top-trending Twitter topic after Democratic presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders appeared on his podcast.
Despite the overall shock of Sanders’ presence on the podcast, many people were quick to praise the commentator for hosting such a pragmatic and informative discussion with the candidate.
And it is shown in his podcasts.
His lack of confrontation and overall, interested attitude suggests that he could potentially make an excellent interviewer and host more political debates and interviews in the future.
His episode with boxing legend Mike Tyson is easily one of his highlights.
Rogan has been revealed by Forbes to be the highest-earning podcaster of the past year.
“[He is] delivering scale and engagement. He’s the no. 1 in terms of reach in the U.S.”
Forbes estimate he’s earned $30 million in the past year alone – with MFM earning around $15m, and Dave Ramsey around $10m.
We know, it’s a shocking figure.
But hey – we guess he must be a talented individual to have this sort of pull!
But it seems that things have taken a sour turn in the last few days.
Diaz is a well-known comedian here in the States, and he is heard on the podcast making jokes about coercing women into having oral sex with him.
And Rogan couldn’t contain his laughter when Diaz explained how he would only allow female comedians onto the stage if they would perform sexual acts on him.
“You think I’m f****** kidding? Yeah, you’ve got to suck my d*** to get up to The Belly Room. I’ll make a call for you, that’s the f****** gateway into coming into Hollywood, everyone knows that!”
To which Diaz replies with, “Oh, about twenty. I had this little blonde open-mic chick… she was tremendous. But she finally freaked out. When she got to Hollywood, she was beautiful and when she left she had dirty f****** nails.”
Rogan is hysterically laughing as Diaz says this, by the way.
Which made Rogan laugh and clap even more.
And how cities such as Los Angeles are “full of creeps and pedophiles.”
And many feel that this just goes to show what power can do to people – it can make them lose their humanity.
And it truly goes to show that they believe they have so much more power, just because they’re men.
And they are asking why this disgusting behavior hasn’t been talked about before.
And they feel that people are simply being “too sensitive” for being offended by a joke made 9 years ago.
But regardless of what people think, joking about sexual assault is never going to be funny…
And the victims of this awful crime do not deserve to be laughed at.
Rogan is yet to comment on the podcast, so make sure to stay posted for further updates.
