Charlamagne Tha God is calling out people who are roasting Joe Rogan for using the n-word.
“I don’t believe in cancellation, I believe in curation,” he said on his Brilliant Idiots podcast.
“If you’re a radio personality, a podcaster, rapper, comedian, artist in general– anybody that does this for living…if you open your mouth, and words come out for a living, you can’t be for censorship. And if you are from a certain era, there is no way in hell you can look at Joe Rogan and be like, that’s f*cked up. That’s what’s killing me about all of this, the lack of self-awareness that some people have, the hypocrisy.”
“I don’t think there’s ever room for a white person to use the n-word,” Charlamagne continued. “The Planet of the Apes was the worst to one me, but by the way, that was twelve years ago. We’ve all made f*cked up, terrible jokes. And I listen to Joe Rogan, I don’t know him personally like you do…I’ve met him twice, but I’ve been listening to him for over a decade. The one thing I’ve always liked about Joe is his self-awareness. If you go back and watch the Planet of the Apes thing, even in that commentary, he literally goes, ‘oh my bad, that’s f*cked up. That was racist.'”
