World War Rogan: Spotify CEO Won’t Silence Joe Despite Repeated N-Word Usage

The CEO of Spotify has explained that only niggers are offended by the word “nigger.”

Needless to say, he has no concern for the feelings of filthy niggers.


Daniel Ek, the chief executive of Spotify, addressed Joe Rogan’s past use of racial slurs on Sunday night, telling staff in a memo that while he found the comments “incredibly hurtful” and inconsistent with company values, he did not believe “silencing” the podcaster was the answer.

Ek’s comments come as Spotify faces an unprecedented crisis over Rogan’s rhetoric on race and Covid-19 that has enveloped the company in controversy and led to a growing number of recording artists and podcasters abandoning the platform.

Rogan, who vowed last week to do better when discussing matters related to the pandemic, apologized Saturday morning after a video compilation of him using the n-word was widely shared on social media.

Ek said Sunday night that Rogan’s comments “do not represent the values of this company” and that Spotify had engaged in “conversations with Joe and his team about some of the content in his show, including his history of using some racially insensitive language.”

“Following these discussions and his own reflections, he chose to remove a number of episodes from Spotify,” Ek said.

The sad reality is that if Ek keeps holding this line, he’s almost certainly going to get removed by the board.

It’s a public company.

That’s the way public companies work.
