Recently, Joe Rogan admitted he is a “f**king moron”. He said that he is not a respected source of information, even for him. This comes amid making selfish comments about young, healthy citizens not requiring the COVID-19 vaccine. He said young citizens do not need to get the vaccination.
He has hundreds of millions of listeners for his podcast, ‘Joe Rogan Experience’ airing on Spotify. His negative message resulted in backlash. Doctor Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious diseases expert rebuked.
“If you are a healthy person and you’re exercising all the time and you’re young and you’re eating well, I don’t think you need to worry about this,” Joe said.
Joe Rogan released a video on YouTube. Mr. Rogan clarified that he was “not an anti-vax person.”
“In fact, I said I believe they’re safe and I encourage many people to take them. My parents were vaccinated. I just said, ‘I don’t think that if you’re a young, healthy person that you need it.’ Their argument was, you need it for other people,” Joe Rogan explained.
“So you do not transmit the other virus,” said his co-host.
“That makes more sense. But that is a different argument. That’s a different conversation,” Rogan continued to reason out
Rogan hit a $100 million deal last year as his show was snapped by Spotify.
In addition to that, Joe Rogan defended himself by explaining that he does not plan what he says on air. He said that is why he made misguided comments.
Furthermore, he said he is often drinking alcohol or high during his shows. He accused “clickbaity” journalists of blowing his comments out of proportion.
“I’m not a doctor, I’m a fucking moron and I’m a cage fighting commentator who’s a dirty standup comedian who just told you I’m drunk most of the time and I do testosterone and I smoke a lot of weed. But I’m not a respected source of information, even for me,” he said.
“If I say things, I’m always going ‘check on that Jamie, I don’t know if that’s true.’ But I at least try to be honest about what I’m saying,” he explained.
