Joe Rogan has been engulfed in controversy for days, but now a company is offering to take him away from Spotify entirely.
Rumble, a free speech alternative to YouTube, released a public letter offering Joe Rogan $100 million to switch from Spotify to their platform.
“Dear Joe, we stand with you, your guests and your legion of fans in desire for real conversation,” reads the letter from Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski. “How about you bring all your shows to Rumble, both old and new, with no censorship, for 100 million bucks over four years?”
The offer comes as Spotify has faced pressure over Rogan’s podcast episodes, particularly those where he interviews experts who raise questions about the safety of vaccines. Spotify added a “Content Advisory” to many of Rogan’s episodes.
Rogan fell into more controversy after a compilation video was released showing him using the “N-word” several times over the years. He apologized for that in a video online.
Many high-profile figures have come to Rogan’s defense.
“Nobody has stronger opinions about Joe Rogan than people who have never listened to Joe Rogan,” tweeted Edward Snowden.
Others said the mainstream media is simply jealous of Rogan’s reach.
“There are people with plenty of resources ready to back @joerogan,” tweeted Jordan Peterson. “He’s simply not cancellable. So keep death-spiralling, legacy media types, as you actively bring about your own well-earned demise @CNN etc.”
So far, Rogan has not publicly responded to Rumble’s offer. Should he take the deal? Comment below!
