Joe Rogan is giving Spotify an ultimatum — again.
Joe Rogan said that if it comes to a point where he has to “walk on eggshells” on his show he will “quit” and made it clear his show “requires sincerity.” Without it, he said, the show wouldn’t have success.
During the Tuesday episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, the host talked with his guest MMA fighter Josh Barnett about his past headlines after a video resurfaced of Rogan using a compilation of the N-word and the criticism he’s faced for his COVID-19 vaccine “misinformation.”
Barnett first started out by sharing how he was really nervous about going on the show because he thought with all the attention Rogan has had “everybody” was going to “pore over” every little thing he said during his appearance on the podcast.It starts at the 2:14 minute mark in the show.
“They will because there’s more people poring over it but it’s the same thing,” the host replied. “I do it [the show] the same way.”
“If I become something different because it grew bigger, I’ll quit,” he added. “If it gets to a point that I can’t do it anymore, where I have to do it in some sort of weird way where I walk on eggshells and mind my p’s and q’s, f*** that.”
Barnett said he understood what Rogan was saying and said his pal needed to be able to do his show with “100% sincerity.”
“Especially this,” Rogan replied. “This requires sincerity, without it, this show doesn’t have any success.”
“Ninety-nine percent of everyone’s complaint on you, any criticism, is essentially — they’re levying a insincere — they’re putting insincerity on you,” Barnett answered.
“But the thing is when you do something like that, because it’s a good thing, because it intrigues you and you like it, it resonates with people because they’re so starving for that,” the host replied. “Because most of what you see, you see a lot of people that are cynical and they think that everything is insincere.”
“And you just find the thing that’s the most acceptable to you that’s also insincere,” he added. “And that’s how we pick politicians.”
