While numerous celebrities have actively worked to deplatform popular podcast host Joe Rogan from Spotify, a select few celebrities, sports figures, and high-profile individuals have publicly support the “Joe Rogan Experience” host.
Most notably, Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a “The Rock,” posted a supportive message on Rogan’s video addressing calls for his censorship. “Great stuff here brother,” he commented. “Perfectly articulated. Look forward to coming on one day and breaking out the tequila with you.”
As The Daily Wire highlighted, actor and comedian Kevin James, who’s friends with Rogan, commented on the video: “Joe – we go way back and all these years I’ve known you to be nothing but objective and seeking truth. Thank you. Love you brother.”
The singer Jewel, who’s appeared on “The Joe Rogan Experience,” wrote, “You’re doing a great job. Keep it up.”
Popular tattoo artist Kat Von D added support emojis, including hearts, to Rogan’s Instagram post.
“The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah applauded Rogan for his response to the backlash. “I actually thought it was pretty classy,” he said on his show. “But instead, he owned up to it. I thought it was pretty dope. It was refreshing.”
A “100%” emoji were posted by former NFL quarterback and Hall-of-Famer Troy Aikman.
“Tell me 1 person in the mainstream media that is this transparent and this open,” comedian and actor Jamie Kennedy wrote. “Go ahead , I’ll wait.”
Comedian Andrew Schulz posted a crown emoji in support.
“Well said,” all-around health and fitness guru Jillian Michaels said. “It’s important people have self agency. Listen to all perspectives and choose for themselves. Stay strong.”
Popular DJ Kaskade told Rogan, “Nailed it,” Billboard reported.
“SO WELL SAID,” comedian Andrew Dice Clay wrote. “AND I AM SO PROUD OF HOW YOU HAVE HANDLED IT All. STAY STRONG MY FRIEND!!!”
Actor, host, and comedian Michael Yo posted: “Do you brother. Keep crushing and don’t apologize for having conversations with both sides.”
Reality TV star Jenni Farley, dubbed “JWOWW,” commented: “Perfectly said.”
“Love to see you offer to bring Neil Young and/or Joni Mitchell on with whomever they want by their side to refute whatever it is they’re so pissed about,” popular surfer Kelly Slater wrote. “If they’re for truth it should be an easy convo. I’ll be looking forward to their replies if so.”
Political figures who are not on the Right also provided support. Former Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson, for example, posted: “I’m triple vaxxed, but (unless they’re standing for hate or calling for violence) banning someone’s podcast is too much like burning a book to me. Joe Rogan should talk on his podcast about whatever he damn well pleases.”
“Just keep being you,” former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard commented.
