  • Spotify has reportedly lost around $4B in market value since the Joe Rogan/Neil Young controversy began.
  • On Monday, Rogan posted a video to Instagram that attempted to address the issue.
  • Celebrities such as The Rock, Trevor Noah, Troy Aikman, and more showed their support for the divisive podcast host.

A day after Joe Rogan posted a statement to Instagram about his recent Spotify controversy, a handful of celebrities hopped onto Rogan’s post to praise him for his comments.

“Great stuff here brother. Perfectly articulated,” The Rock commented. “Look forward to coming on one day and breaking out the tequila with you.”

There were other comments from celebrities on Rogan’s post. Kevin James said, “Joe, we go way back and all these years I’ve known you to be nothing but objective and seeking truth.”

Surfer Kelly Slater chimed in saying “love to see you offer to bring Neil Young and/or Joni Mitchell on with whomever they want by their side to refute whatever it is they’re so pissed about — if they’re for truth, it should be an easy convo.”

Even Trevor Noah commended Rogan while hosting The Daily Show, saying: “I actually thought it was pretty classy,” Trevor Noah said on The Daly Show. “But instead, he owned up to it. I thought it was pretty dope. It was refreshing.”

Troy Aikman also left a simple “100” emoji. You can find a few more screengrabs over at TMZ.

The latest controversy surrounding Rogan stems from two recent guests that he’s had: Dr. Peter Mccullough and Dr. Robert Malone. As a result of those episodes, which Neil Young and others classified as misinformation about the virus, Young demanded that Spotify remove his music from their service, which led to a few other musicians doing the same.

All told, Spotify — who signed Rogan to a deal in the neighborhood of $100 million back in 2020 — has reportedly lost around $4 billion in market value since the controversy began, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
