In an article titled “Joe Rogan is Everyone Else’s Problem,” Vice’s Anna Merlan called out platforms such as the UFC, Spotify, and other mainstream entities that make money off of Rogan and said that they are turning a blind eye to Rogan becoming an “increasingly prominent role in extremist spaces.” “Joe Rogan is solidfying his ties with the far right, while at the same time returning to be one of the most prominent faces of the UFC and a linchpin of Spotify’s podcast network.
