Grammy-winning rap artist T-Pain is the latest celebrity to weigh in on the Joe Rogan vs. Spotify debate, stating that if Spotify cancels Rogan for using the N-word in the past, they’ll have to pull “everything” off their platform.
“They don’t worry about what the f*** we saying,” T-Pain said in an interview with TMZ. “If that was the case, they’d take off all the sh** we talk about, killing each other and all that sh**.”
“If they want to take off the derogatory terms for African Americans, they got to take off all the derogatory sh**that we say,” he continued. “They gotta take everything, everything, off.”
The rapper railed against the industry’s hypocrisy and claimed Spotify isn’t interested in long-term solutions, only in feeling comfortable right now.
“They can’t just censor Joe Rogan and be like, ‘Well that’s good, now let me get back to my motherf***ing killing album,'” T-Pain reasoned. “You know what I’m saying? If they’re gonna take it off, you gotta take all of it off.”
“But they don’t want that,” he continued. “Nobody wants that. They just want what’s making them uncomfortable right now [taken off]. You gotta keep that same energy with everything, not just the sh** that’s making you uncomfortable right now.”
The comments came after a video of Joe Rogan saying the N-word multiple times went viral on social media.

As American Wire News reported, the video was the very professional work of a liberal SuperPAC by the name of MeidasTouch.
The video sparked a social media tsunami and prompted Rogan to release yet another apology.
But as T-Pain points out, Rogan’s choice of language has been known by all for years and is only now an issue because Spotify has given him a $100 million contract.
“Let’s keep in mind, he’s been saying all of this before he got $100 million,” T-Pain said. “Everybody knew that that sh**was happening. It wasn’t like he was a small podcaster before all this sh**. All that sh**was public knowledge.”
“There should be punishment for saying things, but we should have kept that same energy a long time ago,” he stated. “Everybody needs to keep that same energy all the f***ing time, and not just when somebody gets a bunch of money.”
While following the money is always a good move, others believe the motivation for attacking Rogan is more ideological in nature.
Rogan often has guests, such as Dr. Robert Malone and Dr. Peter McCullough, whose points of view the Biden administration would prefer were never shared, leading to repeated accusations against Rogan for spreading “misinformation.”
While attacking Rogan for being a racist is an easier path, many think the real aim is to punish him for fomenting “wrongthink.”
Still, plenty of artists and commentators are stepping forward to support the popular podcaster, who they say is definitely not a racist.
“Joe Rogan is simply not a racist,” tweeted fellow podcaster Coleman Hughes. “In fact I would go as far as to say this: if everyone in the world possessed Joe Rogan’s attitude toward race, his openness of mind, and his diverse set of friends, then we would be living in the world that MLK dreamed of.”
