Rumble Offers Joe Rogan ‘100 Million Reasons’ To Exit Spotify

(Republican Insider) – A new report from the folks over at BizPacReview has revealed that super popular podcast host Joe Rogan, who is currently embroiled in a huge free speech controversy with Spotify, could end up getting another massive payday if he decided to take his program over to the Rumble video hosting platform.

Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski posted a tweet on Monday that featured a picture of an email where he offered Rogan, who is also a comedian and a mixed martial arts commentator, “100 million reasons” to dump Spotify and take his content over to the censorship-free platform.

“How about you bring all your shows to Rumble, both old and new, with no censorship, for 100 million bucks over four years,” the message read.

“This is our chance to save the world. And yes, this is totally legit,” the Rumble chief went on to say.

Rogan, who used to be a big-time supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders, is taking fire from all of the crazy vaccine fanatics in both the political arena and the mainstream media for allowing medical professionals to come on his program who have a different point of view on the topic of vaccines and other COVID related topics.

Guests like the inventor of the mRNA technology being used to create the vaccine, Dr. Robert Malone, along with several others.

Rogan himself has already issued apologies for using racial slurs during his program after clips of him doing so came out on the Internet.

“According to Spotify CEO Daniel Ek, the audio streaming and media services provider is standing by Rogan for now, although it has reportedly deleted more past JRE episodes, more than 110 episodes total, from its platform,” the report stated.

“The company also intends to spend $100 million (about what it is reportedly paying Rogan on an exclusive licensing deal, to which Rumble apparently alluded) to develop content from historically marginalized groups,” the BPR report stated.

The employees over at Spotify who have been triggered by Rogan were already very unhappy that the streaming service signed him to the huge contract back in 2020.

“Rogan’s long-form, freewheeling interviews often focus on health and physical fitness and personal development along with political and social issues, the latter of which can overlap, especially in the COVID era, plus other conversations that might be described as fringe,” the report continued.

In a memo to Spotify employees that was sent out on Sunday, Ek went on to condemn the racially insensitive language that Rogan used, along with some of his “incredibly hurtful comments,” and then apologized for how the show “continues to impact” workers, but then added, “I do not believe that silencing Joe is the answer.”

“Ek also implied that some changes are on the way in the content is structured, which is already set to include advisory notifications to podcast episodes that discuss pandemic-related topics,” BPR reported.

“Late last year, Rumble entered into a partnership with President Trump’s media company TMTG in which Rumble will provide TMTG’s social media network TRUTH Social with video and streaming services,” the report added.

According to a story by Forbes, Rumble “plans an ambitious public offering next quarter it hopes will value the company at $2 billion.”

While this idea has led to the company receiving some criticism on social media, advocates of free speech and a few others seem to think that Rogan moving to Rumble is the right move to make.

This would be an excellent move for both Rogan and for Rumble. However, money talks. And Rogan is making a heck of a lot of it over at Spotify. It would be amazing for him to truly demonstrate he’s a man of principle and walk away from that kind of deal.

Let’s hope he considers the offer and decides to truly make a stand for free speech.
