Showdown between Spotify and artists threatening to remove their material from service!

Sharing is Caring!

Spotify says Joe Rogan stays put! They are sticking by their man. Spotify will not bow to pressure mounting from artists wanting Joe Rogan to go. This struggle will be interesting as artists will have to follow through with their threat.

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek says he “strongly” condemns Joe Rogan’s use of the N-word and other derogatory comments toward Black people but remains firm in his decision to keep the podcaster on the platform in order to “[elevate] all types of creators.”

In a letter sent to staff, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Ek acknowledged that Rogan’s comments were “incredibly hurtful” and confirmed that Rogan decided to remove multiple past episodes from Spotify but said he did not believe in removing the podcast from Spotify.

“I want to make one point very clear — I do not believe that silencing Joe is the answer,” Ek wrote. “We should have clear lines around content and take action when they are crossed, but canceling voices is a slippery slope.”
