Joe Rogan Says N-Word Video Is 'Political Hit Job'

Joe Rogan says he's being targeted over the resurfaced n-word videos.

"That video had always been out there. It's like, this is a political hit job," Rogan said on his podcast. "And so they're taking all this stuff I've ever said that's wrong and smushing it all together. It's good because it makes me address some sh*t that I really wish wasn't out there."

Rogan has been called out by multiple celebrities including comedian Trevor Noah.

"It's not real accountability," Noah said. "It's how rich dudes get out of car accidents when they know that it was their fault. … And Spotify can say that Rogan's comments don't represent the company's values, they said 'these podcasts do not represent Spotify's values.' But when companies say that, I'm like, 'Guys, clearly the company's values are making money.' And no shade by the way, those are the values of every company. Part of me wishes that Spotify would just drop the facade. Just come out and be like, 'We do not believe in silencing Joe Rogan, because he makes us money. But if at some point he ends up costing us money, then we will drop him, because money.'"
