The Joe Rogan Experience Vanished From Spotify For A Second Time In Three Days

The Joe Rogan Experience disappeared from Spotify on Monday morning, with listeners unable to find any episodes of the podcast.

Spotify paid over $100 million to secure exclusive rights to UFC commentator Rogan's popular show in 2020.

Since then however, Rogan has been embroiled in a number of controversies in regards to guests on his show and his uses of the N-word in previous episodes.

It's now returned to Spotify after the outage but there is no news on where or why it went offline.

The show also vanished from the streaming giant's page on Friday after a 'technical error' according to sources.

A number of artists removed their music from Spotify last month after Rogan's guests 'spread misinformation' about COVID-19 vaccinations.

Rogan hosted podcasts with Dr. Robert Malone and Peter McCullough, who are vaccine sceptics, and it saw Neil Young pull all his songs.

Young said in a statement: "I am doing this because Spotify is spreading false information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them.

"They can have Rogan or Young. Not both."

Not long after that, a video emerged of Rogan using the N-word in a number of shows between 2009 and 2018.

70 episodes were removed from Spotify and the 54-year-old issued a public apology while stressing he'll do better in the future.

Some have called for Spotify to drop the show, while fans of Rogan argue it'd be censorship on a massive scale.

The saga saw Rogan step away from the booth for UFC 271 despite UFC sources claiming it was down to a 'scheduling conflict'.

UFC president Dana White said: "There's no conflict of schedule, Joe Rogan didn't work tonight. Joe Rogan could've worked tonight.

When asked if Rogan chose to stay away, he continued: "Yeah [he elected not to work].

"I don't know what Joe Rogan had to do, you'll have to ask Joe Rogan. There was no Joe couldn't work or anything like that. It's total bulls**t."

White defended Rogan ahead of the show as did UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.

He's expected to return for UFC 272 next month.
