The financial repercussions for Spotify for allowing Rogan to remain on its platform continue.
The ever-righteous Obamas are reportedly going to allow their current contract to expire without renewing on the platform.
According to reports, the Obamas are now looking for new podcast partners so they can join the list of podcasters protesting Rogan being permitted to remain on the platform.
We Are Out!
The fallout continues for Spotify.
Artists are banding together in an effort to have Joe Rogan permanently banned from Spotify.
The latest to join the boycott appears to be Barack and Michelle Obama.
The initial pushback against Rogan was because of his anti-vaccine stance.
Now, however, it is about numerous episodes where Rogan dropped the N-word.
To be clear, Rogan used the word in the context of what other people had said or how they were being characterized.
All of this content was created years ago, at which time few said a word.
After Rogan spoke out about the vaccine, all of this became a problem.
The funny thing about the Obamas getting ready to leave Spotify is the comments made by Barack when they first joined the platform to do podcasts.
At the time, Obama stated, “We’ve always believed in the value of entertaining, thought-provoking conversation.
“It helps us build connections with each other and open ourselves up to new ideas.”
I guess “thought-provoking conversation” is no longer a thing for the Obamas.
