Joe Rogan Sorry For Lying About “Left-Wing” Arsonists

Mediaite reports:

Podcast host Joe Rogan issued an apology on Friday afternoon, after he spread a debunked report about forest fires being started in Oregon by “left-wing people.” The host of The Joe Rogan Experience made his initial comments about the false conspiracy theory, which gained traction on social media, Thursday — claiming that in Oregon “they’ve arrested left-wing people for lighting these forest fires.” On Friday afternoon Rogan issued an apology on Twitter.

Rogan has not apologized for his frequent attacks on trans people, about whom he and a guest this week wondered if their increased visibility is a sign of “the end of America.” Rogan’s $100 million Spotify deal recently launched but missing from the archives are his interviews with Alex Jones and other extremists that Rogan has given voice to.
