Rogan addressed the recent controversy in Tuesday’s episode of The Joe Rogan Experience. “That video had always been out there. It’s like, this is a political hit job,” Rogan said. “And so they’re taking all this stuff I’ve ever said that’s wrong and smushing it all together.”

Despite calling it a “political hit job” Rogan said that there was a silver lining in his controversy, as it allowed him to “address some shit that I [Rogan] really wish wasn’t out there.”

Rogan posted an apology video over the weekend after the montage video of him repeatedly using the N-word went viral. In the video, Rogan also gave a cringe-worthy explanation for a joke he made during an episode of his podcast where he likened a Black area that a cab driver dropped him off into Planet Of The Apes.

Since the montage resurfaced, over 100 episodes of Rogan’s podcast have been removed from Spotify. Spotify CEO Daniel Ek said that despite the controversy surrounding Rogan, the streaming giant will continue its relationship with Rogan and will donate $100 million to develop and market content from minority and marginalized groups.
