Spotify CEO says Rogan chose to remove the podcast episodes.

quote:

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek addressed staff in a late night memo addressing Joe Rogan’s use of the n-word and the mysterious removal of 70 podcast episodes earlier this week. The total number of deleted Joe Rogan Experience episodes is now 113, according to the website jremissing.com.

“Not only are some of Joe Rogan’s comments incredibly hurtful — I want to make clear that they do not represent the values of this company,” Ek writes in the memo, which The Verge obtained. “I know this situation leaves many of you feeling drained, frustrated and unheard.”

quote:

He goes on to say Spotify spoke with Rogan and his team about “some of the content in his show, including his history of using some racially insensitive language.” Following these chats “and his own reflections,” Ek says Rogan “chose to remove a number of episodes from Spotify.”

Ek also says that although he “strongly condemns” Rogan’s words, he does not believe “silencing Joe is the answer.”

quote:

Ek then says he’s committing $100 million — the same amount reportedly paid to exclusively distribute Rogan’s show — to licensing, developing, and marketing music and other audio content by creators from historically marginalized groups. He also says the company is expanding the number of outside experts it consults on how to balance user safety and “creator expression” and will share more details.

This is so brave considering the most popular music on Spotify already comes from blacks

And just like that the progressives fund another group of "non-profit" activist groups to burn down buildings and protest on demand.

Come on man Jesus. They probably didn’t change a dime of what they already had planned. Sounds like Spotify is about to become a hip hop label

That said, I’m out. Day 1 subscriber too

That conversation probably went like this.

Spotify: remove the selected episodes, or we will remove every episode and then ban you from uploading. You can spend the rest of the contract sitting on the shelf collecting dust.

Rogan: removing the selected episodes right now.

I love this “unheard” crap. Hey kids, you can be heard and still nothing changes. You don’t run shite. When you start a company you can worry about being heard.

Love-love-love seeing how pissed y’all are over this



Y’all clung onto a leftist Bernie Boy because he’s an anti-vaxxer and now y’all are surprised

Among those 113 deleted episodes are the ones with another Poli Board hero - Alex “bozo” Jones
