The Rock doesn't like Joe Rogan anymore. Yes, the 270lbs, action movie star, prepping to step into the shoes of Black Adam and possibly gearing up for a Call of Duty movie, is no longer a fan of Joe Rogan. Why? Not because of the COVID stuff, no, but because Joe has been caught happily slurring away, while using the N-word.
The Rock Will Never Appear On Joe Rogan
Joe just can't get out of this cycle of controversy he currently finds himself in. First, it was his guest selection, then it was his opinions on COVID and vaccinations, and now it seems to all have come crashing down, with clips of him surfacing, that show him using the N-word.
The COVID thing alone caused Joe Rogan a lot of trouble, and even saw artists leave Spotify as a form of protest. The Rock, meanwhile, supported Joe Rogan after the latter released an apology video, promising to try harder in the future. It was interesting to see The Rock openly support Joe Rogan since he usually shies away from any controversial statement. Of course, critics were quick to hate on Rock's support, and now the bug guy doubled down on his support, after writer Don Winslow made him aware of Joe Rogans love for the N-word:
Dear @TheRock,— Don Winslow (@donwinslow) February 4, 2022
You're a hero to many people and using your platform to defend Joe Rogan, a guy that used and laughed about using the N word dozens of times, is a terrible use of your power.
Have you actually listened to this man's many racist statements about Black people?
Dear @donwinslow— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) February 5, 2022
Thank you so much for this
I hear you as well as everyone here 100%
I was not aware of his N word use prior to my comments, but now I've become educated to his complete narrative.
Learning moment for me.
Mahalo, brother and have a great & productive weekend.
No more tequila with The Rock, for you, Joe. Needless to say that I firmly side with The Rock on this one. Also, it will be interesting to see, what other repercussions Joe Rogan has to deal with, as you can expect for this not to be the last we hear about Joe and the N-word clips.
