Dwayne Johnson Reverses His Decision To Support Joe Rogan

Must read

Dwayne Johnson ”The Rock” had initially supported Joe Rogan but has now “become educated” after learning of Rogan’s racial slur. Spotify has been getting backlash from its users after the legendary singer Neil Young asked the platform to remove his songs. Joe Rogan is accused of promoting falsehoods about COVID vaccination in a podcast he hosted. In response, Dwayne Johnson stepped up in support of Rogan. However, according to the latest update, Dwayne has stopped supporting Joe Rogan.

On February 6, singer India Arie shared some clips from Joe Rogan’s podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, in which he used the N-word. Furthermore, Rogan was seen comparing Black neighborhoods to “Planet of the Apes” in one of the videos. After Dwayne found out the details, he walked back to his support for Rogan while responding to a tweet from author Don Winslow.

Don Winslow took to Twitter and tweeted, “Dear @TheRock, You’re a hero to many people and using your platform to defend Joe Rogan, a guy who used and laughed about the N-word dozens of times, is a terrible use of your power. Have you listened to what he says about Black people?” The author even tagged Dwayne Johnson in the post.
