Joe Rogan Complains ‘Straight White Men’ Will Be Silenced, Not Allowed Outside Due to Cancel Culture

Tyler McCarthy, Fox News, May 18, 2021

Joe Rogan sounded off on cancel culture, courting controversy by speculating that it could lead to the silencing of “straight White men.”

The podcast host, 53, sat down for an interview with comedian Joe List last week on his “Joe Rogan Experience” show where the duo got to talking about movies, specifically edgy comedies like “Superbad,” “Step Brothers” and more. While List tried to think of the most recent edgy comedy he’d seen, Rogan went off on a rant about how filmmakers couldn’t make a movie in that genre today for fear of getting “canceled.”


“You can never be woke enough, that’s the problem. It keeps going, it keeps going further and further and further down the line and if you get to the point where you capitulate, where you agree to all these demands, it’ll eventually get to a point where straight White men aren’t allowed to talk because it’s your privilege to express yourself when other people of color have been silenced throughout history,” Rogan said. “It’ll be ‘you’re not allowed to go outside because so many people were imprisoned for so many years.’ I’m not joking, it really will get there. It’s that crazy.”


“If you’re a human being, you should be able to express yourself,” he said. “You shouldn’t have to take into account all the other people that are either not heard or not expressing themselves currently or not in the same whatever category as you. Like, come on man, we can’t do that. What you’re doing is you’re forcing yourself to think double and triple about every f—ing thing you say and whether or not you have the right to say it. Whether or not you’ve got the right to express yourself… It’s a terrible way to live.”
