In the most recent episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Joe complained about how homeless people’s possessions were littered throughout public spaces while discussing the crisis in Los Angeles with comedian Tom Segura. Even though he’ll likely claim that people missed his point, Joe Rogan is once again in hot water after making a stupid joke about shooting homeless people in Los Angeles. He is also receiving criticism for the “joke.”
Tom added that all of that stuff was personal property and that attempting to take a homeless person’s belongings could result in arrest. Of course, this is the internet, and all jokes and comments are taken out of context, so it’s no wonder Joe is being targeted again.
Joe Rogan In Hot Water For Joke About Shooting Homeless People In Los Angeles On His Popular Podcast
The full context is that Rogan used that remark as a springboard to criticize L.A. County D.A. George Gascón, who has come under fire for being lenient in some cases, even when firearms are involved. While Gascon has been getting criticized, and rightfully so, for a while now, this has been lost in the translation.
While joking about shooting all the homeless people may be in bad taste for some people, it was clearly a joke and nothing that Rogan would condone (obviously). Still, the internet is going to internet and make things worse than they intended to be.
The firestorm is still brewing on Twitter and after looking at some of the tweets, I can’t believe what some people will say behind a keyboard or phone. Twitter is the same cesspool it’s always been, and with the outrage on there, I expect this to last a few days before it’s gone in the wind. Joe will continue doing his thing and making jokes, and people will continue listening.
What do you think? Did Joe go too far with his joke or was it just that? A joke? Let us know in the comments below.
