Mark Cuban, a celebrity businessman, has said that podcaster Joe Rogan and Elon Musk’s platform on Twitter are “mainstream online media”. ”
Cuban wrote: “Don’t tell yourself and us that you are different. It’s not true.”
Rogan offered to donate $100,000 in a charity of Dr. Peter Hotez’s choice if Hotez appeared on his show to debate Democratic Presidential Primary Candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Rogan offered the deal after Hotez shared a Vice article titled “Spotify has stopped even sort of trying to stop Joe Rogan’s Vaccine Misinformation.” ” The article discussed Kennedy’s appearance on Rogan’s show.
Tom Nichols, of the Atlantic, said that a doctor should never agree to a discussion with a conspiracy theorist. He tweeted: “Never debate a conspiracist.”
Rogan responded: “That’s a great idea if you could make sure that the industry that you represent wasn’t completely taken over by heartless monsters whose deceptions have cost hundreds of thousands people their lives. But, you can’t. So… perhaps it’s a good thing to have a ****** discussion. ”
Cuban criticized Rogan for his remarks and said that he was disrespectful.
Cuban claimed that Rogan was bullying Hotez.
