Doctors have had enough of the horse crap that Joe Rogan just cannot stop himself from spouting.
The podcast host has been accused of spreading fake news since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and now doctors have asked Spotify to shut him up.
Here’s what the doctors had to say:
We are a coalition of scientists, medical professionals, professors, and science communicators spanning a wide range of fields such as microbiology, immunology, epidemiology, and neuroscience and we are calling on Spotify to take action against the mass-misinformation events which continue to occur on its platform. With an estimated 11 million listeners per episode, JRE is the world’s largest podcast and has tremendous influence. Though Spotify has a responsibility to mitigate the spread of misinformation on its platform, the company presently has no misinformation policy.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Joe Rogan has repeatedly spread misleading and false claims on his podcast, provoking distrust in science and medicine.
Let’s hope he listens.
