Podcast star Joe Rogan has shared his thoughts on Andrew Tate being deplatformed from social media, claiming the former kickboxer ‘f**ked up’ by being misogynistic.
On the latest instalment of The Joe Rogan Experience, the UFC commentator was joined by Bryan Callen, Eddie Bravo, and Brendan Schaub.
And it didn't take long for Andrew Tate's recent ban to become a hot topic of conversation.
Rogan claimed that despite his ‘misogynistic’ rhetoric, Tate’s messaging made sense and wasn’t surprised it hit home with a younger audience.
Joe stated: “He f**ked up with the misogynist stuff.”
The podcast host claimed that if he didn’t do the ‘misogynist stuff’ and just had the ‘pro-male’ and ‘pro-accountability’ messaging then he wouldn’t have gotten de-platformed.
Rogan then explained that the 35-year-old offered a positive mindset in regards to motivation and ambition, saying: “If you just concentrate entirely on your feelings you’re not going to get anywhere and that’s true. That’s a good lesson for people to learn.”
He added: “Look, he plays part of it like a character, and part of it is legit world champion kickboxer, who is a hard man, who doesn't buy any p***y bulls**t and that's what resonating with young people.”
Andrew Tate amassed a massive social media following as his views and videos were shared across multiple platforms.
Many of his views had been labelled as sexist and harmful to his impressionable male audience.
However, while Rogan doesn’t believe in all the ideologies that Tate shares, he did believe that the world needs people such as him.
He said to Andrew Shulz on the podcast: “Toxic masculinity, what that means is, ‘Oh, you mean the men that carved the world.’ You do need them, you just don’t think that you need them because you don’t need them right now. Now Russia has them, China is making them more masculine.”
Rogan’s fellow guest Shaub added that regardless of the controversy that Tate should not have been removed from social media and should ‘have a voice’.
The podcaster was asked if he would ever invite Tate onto his podcast, to which he responded: “It’s a conversation.”
The British-American has since moved onto ‘free speech’ podcast platform Rumble - a platform that Rogan turned down a $100 million deal with.
Rogan believes the platform could ‘severely limit’ the internet personality’s influence.
And let’s be honest, that’s not a bad thing.
