Rumble has offered Joe Rogan $100 million to leave Spotify for its platform. Here’s the letter.

Chris Pavlovski, the CEO of the Candian video platform, posted the open letter on Twitter. “We stand with you, your guests, and your legion of fans in a desire for real conversation. How about you bring all your shows to Rumble, both new and old, with no censorship, for $100 million bucks over four years?” the letter reads. “This is our chance to save the world. And yes, this is totally legit.”

Rumble launched in 2013 as an alternative to YouTube and hosts several right-wing personalities. Dinesh D’Souza and Steve Bannon regularly create content for the video site. Rumble also struck a deal with Truth Social, the social media app former President Trump is launching. So far, Rogan has not made any comment on the deal.

Over the weekend, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek said he does not believe that silencing Joe Rogan is the answer. “We should have clear lines around content and take action when they are crossed, but canceling voices is a slippery slope,” Ek’s letter to Spotify staffers reads. Spotify’s stock has been sliding for months, even before the Rogan debate kicked off.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that Spotify’s stock closed at $161 on May 18, 2020. That’s the day before Spotify’s deal with Joe Rogan was announced. After the deal, the stock sky-rocketed up to $364 by February 2021. But those post-Rogan gains have disappeared nearly two years on. The stock is now trading around the $170 level and continues to slide as Spotify’s user growth slows.

The brouhaha surrounding Joe Rogan and artists pulling their music may only be heating up, too. Neil Young cited Rogan’s misinformation surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine as his primary reason for removing his music.

But India Arie highlighted Rogan’s previous comments about race as a reason she was pulling her music. Spotify recently removed 70 episodes of the JRE podcast (at Rogan’s request) following a super-cut video of him using the n-word. Rogan has apologized for using the word in any context since the video made its rounds on social media.

    I’m still waiting for actual quotes from Rogan or his guests about the “vaccines” and what was supposedly “misinformation”, and why would that require censorship.

    Meanwhile, Joni Mitchell has spent the past 15 years telling every mainstream news outlets about his fake disease called Morgellons. Mainstream media repeats it without question, even though the so-called disease has been studied considerably and even the CDC calls it a “delusion”.

    Neil Young has sided with Big Pharma. He is a full blown fascist.

    The mainstream media is funded by Big Pharma and is full of perverts reading the news.

    Daniel Ek is a wimp.

    Spotify employees are woketards.

    India Arie is a moron who needs to go on a date with Chris Brown.

      Your comments prove you are ignorant and/or mentally unstable.

          Yeah, you’re dumb. You can’t even come up with a unique screen name – having to steal mine. More proof your mom should have gone with her first thought and aborted you.

          • Your dad

            I am glad you support murdering babies. Did you also support Cuomo murdering nursing home patients?

        • Idiot Detector

          Still unoriginal in your reply and screen name choice. You really are such a loser. Everyone knows you post under various names with your idiocy all day long. You’re really leaving such a strong, intelligent mark. People really believe what you say. Ha. Stay in your basement, you troll.

            I am really a nutless pencil neck who nobody liked in grade school. I cannot compete in the real world so I work for the government and love sniffing John Kerry’s nuanced underwear.

            I contribute nothing to society and am insanely jealous of people who work hard and prosper under capitalism. I hate work, and that is why I love socialism. I get stuff free from people who do work.

      The use of words like woketard, fascist, pervert, etc. with nothing to back those claims don’t help your case. Name-calling, as opposed to actual facts (which you never present) show that you have nothing except a milk crate to shout from with nobody listening. Nice job.

    • FATrumpers

      You’re a really stupid loser, and it’s clear in every word. Sorry your big fat orange conman wasn’t able to steal his second election. Now go home to your trailer and pray your propane money doesn’t run out.

    Rumble will regret this. Joe Rogaine has hit his peak and it’s all downhill from here…and quickly.

    • Geronimo

      Hahahahahaha….his brand is skyrocketing due to liberal cancel culture bs.

      • Idiot Detector

        You said “cancel culture” to prove you are an idiot. Ha ha ha! I laugh at you bigly.

      • Blaster

        His brand is skyrocketing among old geriatrics no corporations cares about, and the younger psychotic loser contingent. Those are REAL valuable demographics! Now STFU and GFY.

        • Blaster

          Rogan smashes all other podcasts across all demographics. Do your homework, you fucking socialist jackwad.

          • Kline

            “Smashes”? Wow, you’ve got your finger on the pulse of real data and stats. Thank for sharing and backing up your adult argument.

          • Margerie

            Ha ha ha. You tried to make a point, then ended up calling someone a name, which invalidates anything you were attempting to do. No so good at communicating, it seems. Stick to chalk on the sidewalk, you buffoon.

          • Olie

            How old are you, with that kind of comment? Jeez. If his podcast does beat all others, it just proves there are most stupid people out there than we originally thought. They are the real sheep and snowflakes.
