Joe Rogan has previously been met with heavy criticism after a compilation surfaced that showed the podcaster repeatedly using the n-word throughout the course of his show’s existence.

In a recent interview, Rogan details what happened after all the backlash and cancellation attempts, following the release of the compilation.

While speaking to Douglas Murray, a British political analyst, about the drama surrounding his podcast at the time, Murray said to Rogan, “You have been put through the wringer since we last met. They did a number on you. Wow.”

In response, Rogan stated, “It’s interesting, my subscriptions went up massively — that’s what’s crazy.” Adding, “During the height of it all, I gained two million subscribers … Yeah, [the media] went for it. It’s also fortunate that the people who went for it were CNN. They’re so untrustworthy, and people know how biased they are and socially weird their anchors are.”

The 54-year-old then goes on to ridicule CNN for making a false claim that he used “horse dewormer” to treat his COVID-19 infection.
