Dwayne Johnson Issues Support For Joe Rogan Amid Spotify Covid Misinformation Controversy, Fans Say, ‘Lost All Respect’
Dwayne Johnson supported Joe Rogan after he challenged the word ‘misinformation’.
Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson rendered his support for Joe Rogan following the podcast host’s response to artists protesting his presence on Spotify.
The recent development comes after Joe Rogan released a ten-minute video on Monday, responding to critics calling for the platform to remove The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, arguing that he often spreads misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic on the show.
In the video, Joe Rogan challenged the word ‘misinformation’. Rogan mentioned that Spotify will begin to put a disclaimer at the beginning of these sorts of interviews and he will also consider following them up with an expert with a different opinion.
Taking to the comments section of Joe’s lengthy video, Dwayne Johnson complimented the UFC commentator and said that he hopes to come on The Joe Rogan Experience soon. The actor wrote, "Great stuff here brother. Perfectly articulated. Look forward to coming on one day and breaking out the tequila with you."
Rogan and Johnson have had a few friendly exchanges on social media and the former 'Fear Factor' host previously backed Dwayne in 2020 amid speculation that the former WWE star was planning to run for political office, according to Fox News.
However, a section of users do not seem to be impressed by Dwayne supporting the podcast host on the post itself.
"Highly disappointed in you for supporting a man spreading medical disinformation about a pandemic,” wrote one. Another replied to Dwayne's comment and said, "This is so disappointing. Lost all respect."
Many fans wrote they were unfollowing the actor after his comment in support of Joe Rogan.
