Here’s Why #DeleteSpotify is Trending

The internet is calling for the cancellation of Spotify subscriptions following controversial podcaster, Joe Rogan, COVID misinformation on the platform, severally.

In response to the backlash, Rogan said, “I’m not trying to promote misinformation, I’m not trying to be controversial. I’ve never tried to do anything with this podcast other than just talk to people and have interesting conversations.

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek hanged in the balance of the issue saying, “It is important to me we don’t take on the position of being content censor while also making sure that there are rules in place and consequences for those who violate them.”

Several artists have since removed their catalogue from the platform unless action is taken.

The Joe Rogan Experience, which is exclusively hosted on the platform for a $100 million deal, was the most listened to podcast in 2021.
