Musician and songwriter Neil Young admitted he's displeased at Joe Rogan's comments about the COVID-19 vaccine, and therefore is demanding Spotify remove all of his music from the platform.
Dating back to 2020, Spotify decided to come to a consensus and sign a $100 million deal with the controversial Joe Rogan. Known for his UFC color commentating, Rogan has been able to take over his social media visibility due to his podcast called The Joe Rogan Experience.
He's gained over 14 million on Instagram and 8 million on Twitter, but his mouth is still grabbing the most attention from his viewers. In a recent podcast episode last month with Dr. Robert Malone, virologist Malone told Rogan that hospitals are "financially incentivized to label COVID as a cause of patient deaths" and that leaders are hypnotizing the public's anxiety.
Young seems to be tired of such a large podcast influencing viewers in the wrong way. In a letter to his label and management, it stated,
"Spotify has a responsibility to mitigate the spread of misinformation on its platform, though the company presently has no misinformation policy. I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform…They can have Rogan or Young. Not both."
Spotify hasn't responded to the request yet, but Rogan might have something to say to Young in an upcoming podcast.
