T-Pain is posing an interesting question about Joe Rogan — what exactly are people angry about … perceived harmful content in general, or is the outrage strictly personal?
The singer dished his thoughts about the ever-evolving Rogan saga this weekend in L.A. — while celebrating the release of his new track, “That’s Just Tips,” at Nightingale. He says … yeah, Rogan’s use of the n-word is ugly and perhaps even worthy of “cancelation.”
CW: Multiple clips of Joe Rogan saying the N-word.
In the same breath, TP also acknowledges what Spotify has confirmed — namely, that JR isn’t going anywhere … and in T’s mind, the reason for that is cold, hard cash.
Fact is, Rogan was an expensive buy for the streaming giant — $100 million, to be exact — and it’s precisely because of that, from T-Pain’s POV, that they won’t get rid of him. As he puts it, they have to get every cent they spent out of Joe.

With all that said, T-Pain also wonders if the same energy people have for Joe Rogan at the moment is merely selective — because he says, if folks are truly perturbed by what they consider dangerous rhetoric, why not nix a lot of raps songs too???
He’s pointing out what he sees as hypocrisy and asking for folks to dish out their indignation evenly. 🤔
