Joe Rogan Gained Two Million Subscribers After Being Accused of Spreading COVID-19 Misinformation

The podcast host Joe Rogan claims that his subscribers actually increased when he was criticised for spreading COVID-19 misinformation. The Independent has more.

In February, Rogan found himself at the centre of a controversy after hosting a podcast guest who claimed that Americans were “hypnotised” into wearing masks and getting vaccines.

Footage then re-emerged online showing Rogan repeatedly using the N-word on old episodes of The Joe Rogan Experience. Rogan apologised, telling his followers: “There’s nothing I can do to take that back – I wish I could.”

While Spotify removed 113 episodes of the podcast from its catalogue, they remained loyal to the podcaster amid calls to remove the show completely.

However, hosting his podcast on Friday (April 22nd), Rogan claimed that his number of subscribers hadn’t been negatively affected by the controversy and that he’d gained two million subscribers at its height.

His guest, British writer and political commentator Douglas Murray, said to Rogan: “You have been put through the wringer since we last met. They did a number on you.”

“They did. It’s interesting, my subscriptions went up massively – that’s what’s crazy,” he said.

“During the height of it all, I gained two million subscribers.”
