Sedan Spotify plockat bort ett 70-tal avsnitt av Joe Rogans kontroversiella podcast så har det spekulerats om varför gjort detta i tysthet.
Nu kan Ars Technica berätta att det handlar om Joe Rogans och hans gäster användande av det rasistiska N-ordet.
“Previously, Spotify had pruned 43 ‘JRE’ episodes from the catalog after the company added Rogan’s show in September 2020 under a $100 million exclusive distribution pact. Those included segments with right-wing figures such as Infowars’ Alex Jones, Gavin McInnes and Milo Yiannopoulos and also episodes with comedians,” according to Variety.
The episodes removed Friday “featured guests including podcaster, actor and comedian Marc Maron, LGBTQ activist and author Dan Savage, political commentator Kyle Kulinski, and comedians Bill Burr, Tom Segura, Iliza Shlesinger, Theo Von, Brian Redban, Rich Vos, and Pete Holmes,” Variety wrote.
