Joe Rogan Takes To Instagram To “Sort Of” Apologize

Spotify is feeling the heat from the actions of their star podcaster Joe Rogan. With a pair of artists leaving and others questioning the company and calling for more artists to leave, you know that things are not good for the Swedish company. They did sort of respond to that yesterday with a very lame response, but one person who has not responded to this is Joe Rogan himself.

Until now that is.

Rogan has now posted an almost 10-minute-long video to Instagram in which he claims that the criticisms are taken out of context, and defends the credentials of his recent guests. The ones who have been accused of spreading COVID mis-information. However he does go on to apologize to Spotify for the controversy he has caused and promises to “balance” out his guests in the future.

Here’s a link to his Instagram post:

Keep in mind that in December, around 270 doctors, researchers, and other health care professionals in a wide range of fields signed an open letter calling on Spotify to introduce measures to address misinformation about the virus on its platform. The letter’s authors specifically took aim at an interview Rogan aired with a doctor, Robert Malone, who said Americans had been “hypnotized” into wearing masks and getting vaccinated. But according to Rogan, “I wanted to hear what their opinion is,” and “I do not know if they’re right. I don’t know because I’m not a doctor, I’m not a scientist. I’m just a person who sits down and talks to people and has conversations with them.”

I’m sorry. I’m not buying what he’s selling. But we will see how much of an effect it has on the growing firestorm around Spotify. If it has any effect at all.
