He also apologized earlier this month — and pledged more balance — after a string of artists, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, quit Spotify and accused him of spreading COVID-19 misinformation on his wildly popular podcast.
“If I p—ed you off, I’m sorry,” Rogan said at the time. “I’m not trying to promote misinformation. I’m not trying to be controversial… I’ve never tried to do anything with this podcast other than just talk to people and have interesting conversations.”
In the wake of the latest saga involving the racial slurs, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek sent a letter to staffers on Sunday criticizing Rogan’s comments — but said the company would not be “canceling” him.
