So I'm sure we've all heard about Joe Rogan using the "N" word. Even though all the recorded instances of him using that phrase have been spread out over the past few years, it is documented he did in fact say it. Of course he did his mealy mouthed apology, many still think he should be drawn and quartered. A couple of observations.

Being that his crime was committed fairly recently, you have to ask yourself, "what the fuck is this cretin thinking?" No matter how cutting edge and down wit da bruthas you think you are, there will never be an acceptable time or place for a white man to use that phrase. Especially some one who is listened to by tens of millions.

Spotify is of course on this and it wouldn't surprise me if he was cancelled 100m contract or not. But will Dana put the spear through the crucified Rogan's side as a coup de grace?

What do you slatterns think? Is this the end of Joe Rogan?

EDIT: I just saw that this subject is being broached on the Corona Virus thread. Perhaps a merge or maybe delete this thread completely if so desired.

Why not just not listen to him? That’s been working great for me.

I'm against cancelling him, and pretty much anyone else, for their views, or for meltdowns and/or mistakes in speaking. If I think what you've said or done is stupid, fine, its up to me to "cancel" you myself, by not listening to you, watching you, reading your material, or whatever.


The UK is pursuing putting a law in place to hold networks like Netflix criminally responsible for the content they allow to be shown if it deemed offensive (somehow). That's the end game of Cancel Culture and that just isn't right.

His fans should determine if he is cancelled; listen, attend his shows or don't it's a problem that can solve itself. Joe is a rather lefty kind of guy and you can find plenty of mid level lefty people saying the n word on video in varying contexts if you want to find them. Joe will exist until he doesn't, and he will always have a degree of influence but since the cathedral feels he is a threat he will be othered. He should have learned from Bernie and bent the knee so he could be welcomed to the club as a junior member.



This is a long thread talking about the recent "hit pieces" on Joe.

I don’t listen to Joe Rogan, but the compilations of him saying it are taken out of context. That’s already been established.

If Joe Rogan gets kicked off Spotify and wants to continue doing his show he will still be the biggest podcast on earth.

I've listened to probably 100+ shows over the past 3 or 4 years and I don't remember him saying the N word once. I also don't believe he is racist.

In the compilation he appears to only use it when quoting someone else. Not saying that's right but it's not the same as calling someone the N word.

The bit about 'Planet of the Apes' really doesn't come across well and does seem more in the realm of actual racism.

He needs to stop apologising now and get on with things. And as for his pledge to get more diverse opinions on his show, I said previously that certain people on the Left would not go on his show. The list is shorter now over this.

And, lastly, I saw the Press Secretary sticking her nose into this. That is absolutely ridiculous.

Joe Rogan is a virulent victim.

Yes, and they used the example of Jimmy Carr's recent standup special on Netflix as something which could have been stopped or prosecuted under this new law if it was in force. 
Not sure if he's known in the USA but Carr is one of, if not THE, most popular comedians in the UK over the past 15+ years. His new standup show has been on Netflix since Christmas but in the last few days it's blown up because there's a holocaust joke about killing gypsies. 

Here's the story and here's the Health Secretary (who I guess is bored now that Covid is over) calling for a boycott of Carr.
Sajid Javid calls for public to cancel Jimmy Carr for 'horrid' Holocaust joke (telegraph.co.uk)
I watched the standup show at Christmas when it came out and thought it was good in spots but also probably his weakest one. And he is very much playing to his audience knowing that he is always trying to push the offensive factor further and further.

I like jimmy Carrs act. Saw him live at just for laughs in Montreal a few years back.
The reaction after the fact has been astounding considering how long it’s been on Netflix now. It’s an embarrassing look for cancel culture folks. If it was so offensive shouldn’t it have been called out like it is when it was released?
Whoopi never makes her Holocaust reference nobody ever bats an eye about Carr.

Did the Carr special only go up on the US Netflix in the last few days?
It's been on the UK Netflix for over a month at this stage. The other day I saw several politicians and commentators talking about the joke on Netflix 'last night', which was weird.

Jimmy Carr is a great comedian. I don't like that joke and I didn't like quite a bit of his new special. But he is great. And I'm kind of surprised they haven't started digging up more of his jokes to attack him, because they will not have a hard time finding more 'offensive material' including loads of jokes about rape, incest and pedophilia.

Oh, it's coming.

I'm in Canada so I don't know when it went up in the US, but I'm sure it's been up a while here. I watched it at least a week if not more before this suddenly was a thing.
