After more than 70 episodes of the Joe Rogan Experience were deleted from Spotify, Rumble offered Joe 100 million dollars to move to their platform.
It has now come to light that Spotify was not actually censoring Rogan, but rather he caved to the woke mob and deleted the episodes himself.
According to Insider, many of the missing episodes feature right-wing political commentators. However, some deleted episodes involved left-wing commentators like Amy Schumer and Skype Kulinsky.
“While I strongly condemn what Joe has said and I agree with his decision to remove past episodes from our platform, I realize some will want more. And I want to make one point very clear – I do not believe that silencing Joe is the answer.” Said Spotify Executive Daniel Ek.
Rumble’s CEO, Chris Pavloski said in a statement directed at Rogan, “So we’d like to offer you 100 million reasons to make the world a better place. How about you bring all your shows to Rumble, both old and new, with no censorship, for 100 million bucks over four years?”
This seems to be a match with Rogan’s current Spotify deal. Spotify is paying Rogan $100 million for current episodes, as well as his past 11 years of podcasting. It’s unclear over what period of time Rogan is to receive his money from Spotify.
$100 million is certainly a lot of money to receive in just four short years, there’s just a few problems; it doesn’t appear that Spotify is censoring Joe, though we can’t be sure what’s happening behind the scenes and it is very unlikely that Joe could just drop his current deal with Spotify without any conveniences.
Joe would also likely lose some of his audience as he made the switch, Spotify is far more mainstream than Rumble.
