Joe Rogan has once again found himself at the center of controversy over some comments he made on his podcast.

On Tuesday night, Rogan was accused of making anti-Semitic comments when he defended Rep. Ilhan Omar when she faced backlash for saying, “it’s all about the benjamins” when she was talking about America’s support of Israel.

“It’s just about money — she’s just talking about money,”

“That’s not an anti-Semitic statement, I don’t think that is,” “Benjamins are money.

“The idea that Jewish people are not into money is ridiculous. That’s like saying Italians aren’t into pizza. It’s f—ing stupid. It’s f—ing stupid,”

Rogan was immediately accused of making anti-semitic comments by Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League.
“Disturbing that at a time of rising anti-Jewish violence, when growing numbers of Americans believe in antisemitic conspiracy theories,
@joerogan would use his immense platform to spew antisemitic tropes about Jews and money.”

“For centuries, people have used these longstanding tropes to spread vicious lies about the Jewish people. “Comedian” or not, Rogan’s comments are no joke.”

It didn’t take long for Rogan to begin trending on social media because people were angry with his comments.

Rogan was later accused of sounding like Kanye West with his comments.
