Watch: Queer People Are the Most Vicious at Cancel Culture, Says Joe Rogan

Sunday August 1, 2021

Ever wonder who cracked the cancel code?

The website Medialite.com reports that it is none other than comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan, who said on his podcast the Joe Rogan Experience on July 21 that "members of the LGBTQ+ community are the 'most vicious' champions of ostracizing others because 'they've been bullied' and are seeking revenge."

"You know what the thing that's going on with the left — a lot of it is, they're being bullies and a lot of the people that are progressive, that are really like open-minded, unfortunately, there is a lot of people on the left that were bullied by assholes when they were young," Rogan said.


Rogan was speaking to comic Shane Gillis, who has had his own issues with the queer and minority communities in the past. He was dropped from joining "Saturday Night Live" in 2019 after racist and homophobic comments he made on social media went public, reported Vox.

In appearances on  Matt and Shane's Secret Podcast, Gillis referred to Asian-Americans this way: "Why do the fucking ch*nks live there?" Gillis asked, explaining why Chinatown disgusts him. "Get those ducks out of that window ... [An Asian person trying to learn English] — that's more annoying than any other minority playing music loud on their phone."

Gillis had also used homophobic language to describe other comedians; in another episode of the podcast, he called stand-up Chris Gethard and director Judd Apatow "white faggot comics."

He maintains that the grudge that queer people have about having been bullied has made them the most aggressive in cancel culture "The most vicious shit is coming from like transgender people or gay people," Rogan continued — prompting Gillis to add, "Yeah, they're all fired up. What are they all fired up about?"

"They've been bullied," Rogan said to the comedian, who himself has been called out for insensitive remarks towards the LGBTQ+ community. "They're angry. They've been picked on. So, when something happens — they come for you."

He also added his own (and completely unsubstituted) reason for the queer community's embrace of cancel culture. "It's also people that — they don't have a lot of love in their life. If they do have love, it's like, very conditional and it's very precarious,' Rogan said.

"He then admitted he was making 'mass generalizations about huge swaths of people' but called it a 'personality trait that they have' slamming gay and transgender people, particularly on the left, as 'completely uncompassionate," .

"Most of those people have experienced deep pain in their life. It's that old expression, 'Hurt people hurt people.' That's why the cancel culture coming from the left is so vicious," Rogan said.
