UFC commentator and comedian Joe Rogan did not mince his words this week when he blasted Hollywood celebrities for being too wrapped up in progressive ideology to actually see how "dumb" they look.
During a segment on his podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience," he slammed celebrities who took part “I Take Responsibility” campaign, arguing they only did it for attention because they are “so wrapped up in the liberal, progressive ideology” that they can’t see how “dumb” it looked..
“This latest thing where all these actors have this black and white video where they’re talking about racism…. What are you doing? You know what that is? These motherf**kers haven’t gotten any attention for months because they haven’t filmed,” Rogan said.
“You f**king morons… You’re taking responsibility? No, you’re trying to get attention. That’s what you’re doing,” Rogan said. “If they ever feel like doing that again, call me, I’ll tell you how it’s gonna turn out.”
Rogan then played the celebrity video clip, where they are saying: “Going for a jog should not be a death sentence. Sleeping in your own home should not be a death sentence. Playing video games with your nephew should not be a death sentence. Shopping in a store should not be a death sentence. Business as usual should not be life-threatening.”
Rogan said any actor who thinks they can make a difference when it comes to racism should “stop acting” and “go to a f**king doctor and get your head checked.”
“Just the f**k up and wait, you’re a week away from filming again,” Rogan said. “Some of them are so wrapped up in the liberal, progressive ideology that they literally can’t see how dumb this looks to the rest of the world.”

The video alluded to the recent deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and Atatiana Jefferson, which have sparked global protests in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
While many fans praised the message of solidarity, others said the video seemed forced and it reminded them of actress Gal Gadot’s video montage of celebs singing “Imagine” during the coronavirus pandemic. It seems Rogan agreed with the critics.
Rogan was at the center of his own controversy last week when footage of a 2011 podcast with comedian Joey Diaz was unearthed, showing the “Joe Rogan Experience” namesake laughing while his guest made crude comments about soliciting oral sex from women in exchange for allowing them to perform on his comedy stage.
Rogan also recently slammed the Black Lives Matter movement.
During a recent interview on his podcast with biologist Bret Weinstein, Rogan argued that the Black Lives Matter movement was "leaderless" and "attractive to young people [who] feel disenfranchised by the system."
“What’s the end goal? That doesn’t seem to be very clear. There are kids out, chanting no justice, no peace. I’m like ‘what justice are you talking about?’,” Rogan questioned.
“If you pull one of those kids aside and ask them ‘what’s your message and what are you trying to do?’, I think a lot of them would have nothing to say,” he commented.
“That is very concerning to me, I’m very concerned because they seem enthusiastic and passionate about an invisible enemy, an enemy they can’t put on a scale, they can’t tangibly describe it in a way that I can understand it completely.”
