Trump is not one to mince words, and what he had to say to Joe Rogan yesterday was no different. Trump says that the one thing Rogan needs to do amid all the cancel campaigns that are going on against him right now is this: stop apologizing.
Trump says that although Rogan is a popular and interesting guy, he needs to stop apologizing to the leftist lunatics and maniacs and the fake new media.
Trump said, “How many ways can you say you’re sorry? Joe, just go about what you do so well and don’t let them make you look weak and frightened. That’s not you and it never will be!”
Rogan was in some seriously hot water over the weekend after a compilation video surfaced which showed him repeatedly using the N-word, with no context of course, during various podcast episodes. At one point in the video, Rogan referred to a neighborhood that consisted mostly of blacks as “Planet of the Apes.” He immediately went to social media and issued an apology for the language he used.
Rogan said, “It’s not my word to use. I’m well aware of that now, but for years I used it in that manner. I never used it to be racist, because I’m not racist. But whenever you’re in a situation where you have to say, ‘I’m not racist,’ you f***** up. And I clearly have f***** up.”
Previous to this, Spotify announced that the company would add a “content advisory” warning to any episodes that were covering topics like COVID after many creators removed their work from Spotify’s platform because of Joe Rogan. The podcaster said he actually is in support of their decision to add the advisory and said he would even moderate himself.
“One of the things Spotify wants to do, that I agree with, is that at the beginning of these controversial podcasts—specifically the ones about COVID—is to put a disclaimer and say that you should speak with your physician and that these people and the opinions that they express are contrary to the opinions of the consensus of experts, which I think is very important. Sure. Have that on there. I’m very happy with that,” said Rogan.
The CEO of Spotify says he is not willing to cancel Rogan and get on the “slippery slope” of the cancel culture.
