Get ready to Rumble: Joe Rogan offered $100m to leave Spotify

Video streaming service Rumble has offered Joe Rogan $100 million to leave Spotify and broadcast all episodes of The Joe Rogan Experience on the platform without censorship.

The right-wing affiliated streaming service tweeted an image of the letter addressed to Joe Rogan with the $100 million dollar offer that says, “We’d like to offer you 100 million reasons to make the world a better place.”

“We stand with you, your guests, and your legion of fans,” wrote Rumble.

“How about you bring all your shows to Rumble, both old and new with no censorship, for 100 million bucks over four years?”

“This is our chance to save the world. And yes, this is totally legit.”

Rumble boasts the likes of Russell Brand, Ben Shapiro and Mikhailia Peterson in its line-up of featured content creators, along with several controversial right-wing creators.

Donald Trump is also included in the list of popular creators, with a solid 1.15 million people subscribing to his channel.

Rumble’s $100 million dollar offer follows the recent string of Joe Rogan’s controversial headlines. Beginning with the accusation of Joe’s podcast spreading covid misinformation on the episode featuring Dr. Robert Malone, prompting Neil Young’s ultimatum for Spotify.

Rogan signed the multi-year exclusive deal with Spotify in 2020, moving every episode of his content over to the service from YouTube and Apple.

Amid the recent controversy, Spotify silently removed a substantial number of Joe’s podcast episodes, providing Rumble the opportunity for potential interception.

Joe Rogan is Spotify’s most popular podcast with an estimated 11 million listers per episode, but stirrings have been reported within the ranks of the streaming service over the recent drama.

Spotify’s CEO, Daniel Ek, recently addressed his employees about the company’s dilemma – being caught between the platforms number one talent, and the public backlash stemming from covid vaccine misinformation broadcast on the star’s show.

“Even though JRE is an exclusive, it is licensed content. It is important to note that we do not have creative control over Joe Rogan’s content. We don’t approve his guests in advance, and just like any other creator, we get his content when he publishes, and then we review it, and if it violates our policies, we take the appropriate enforcement actions,” Ek said, as reported by The Verge.

“There are many things that Joe Rogan says that I strongly disagree with and find very offensive.”

Will Rumble’s offer tempt Joe into jumping ship?
