Joe Rogan got Covid in Florida, says he’s already taking horse dewormer

Stand Up comedian UFC commentator and Joe Rogan chats with a friend in Calabasas

Joe Rogan is not really “anti-vaxx” and I wouldn’t even put him in the “vaccine skeptic” category, although maybe I’m wrong about that. Rogan just has a somewhat brief history of saying stupid sh-t about Covid and vaccines, like back in April, he said that if you’re healthy and young, you shouldn’t “worry” about getting the vaccine. A day or two later, he said he’s “not an anti-vaxx person” and that people shouldn’t come to him for medical advice, which… fair enough. He has not confirmed whether he did get vaccinated, but he said something about how he was scheduled to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at some point. Anyway, I’m not trying to cape for Joe Rogan, I just think it’s damning enough if we get specific about what he actually said. In any case, Joe Rogan has Covid. In his IG video confirming his diagnosis, he listed his treatments and wouldn’t you know, dude is taking horse dewormer.

Joe Rogan, the host of the hugely popular podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience,” said on Wednesday that he had tested positive for the coronavirus after he returned from a series of shows in Florida, where the virus is rampant.

Mr. Rogan, who was rebuked by federal officials last spring for suggesting on the podcast that young healthy people need not get Covid vaccinations, said that he started feeling sick on Saturday night after he returned from performing in Orlando, Tampa and Fort Lauderdale. He did not say whether he had been vaccinated.

“A wonderful heartfelt thank you to modern medicine for pulling me out of this so quickly and easily,” he said. The list of treatments he mentioned included monoclonal antibodies, which have been shown to protect Covid patients at risk of becoming gravely ill; and prednisone, a steroid widely accepted as a Covid treatment. When Donald J. Trump was stricken with Covid during his presidency, he was also treated with monoclonal antibodies.

Mr. Rogan also said he had received a “vitamin drip” as well as ivermectin, a drug primarily used as a veterinary deworming agent. The Food and Drug Administration has warned Covid-19 patients against taking the drug, which has repeatedly been shown as ineffective for them in clinical trials. However, it is a popular subject on Facebook, Reddit and among some conservative talk show hosts, and some toxicologists have warned of a surge of reports of overexposure to the drug by those who obtain it from livestock supply stores.

Again, YOU ARE NOT A HORSE. If you are reading this, you are not a horse. Do not take horse dewormer. Do not go to your local feed store and buy a bottle of Ivermectin to treat Covid. Do not go to Florida! Do not seek medical treatment for Covid if you didn’t bother to get the vaccine. Enough. Also: considering Rogan’s symptoms, I kind of feel like he didn’t actually get vaccinated?

    He was always the least entertaining part of News Radio.

    That’s all I’m going to say about him.

    • Jezz says:

      I have such an endearing soft spot for anything Newsradio related. I can’t believe this is how one of them turned out. :(

    • salmonpuff says:

      That is exactly what my husband just said!

      And then we moved on to more pressing outrages.

    • terra says:

      He and Andy Dick were equally terrible, I think, in diametrically opposed ways – Dick was too much and Rogan too little. Despite that, I loved NewsRadio.

      My aunt ran a comedy club when I was a kid and I used to do my homework in her office when she babysat me or took me with her when she picked them up at the airport, so I met a LOT of comedians when I was young. I met both and didn’t find them particularly interesting or pleasant, to put it lightly.

      Dave Foley, on the other hand? Love that guy. He was so incredibly nice, sat down and talked with me about books for about half an hour, remembered my name when he came back again and asked what I was reading now.

      • AG says:

        Terra, you must have a million stories! So cool to have those experiences as part of your childhood!

        I’m very happy to hear that Dave Foley was nice. Phew!

      • Christine says:

        What a cool childhood!!

        And I second the relief that Dave Foley was nice.

      • terra says:

        A fair few stories, yeah. Well, about comedians. I have a TON of stories in general, as my childhood was pretty . . . abnormal, in general. I like to (accurately) joke with people that I was raised in dive bars and high-end day spas, punctuated with picking up comedians in my aunt’s car that she refused to clean.

        That club is why I’ve never been able to take Dave Chappelle seriously and also why I will adore Lewis Black until the end of time. Caroline Rhea was a big one for me too because I was a HUGE Sabrina the Teenage Witch fan after having loved Clarissa Explains It All.

        And, yeah, I’m still relieved myself that Dave Foley was such a gem. So many of them weren’t.

      • Man, Terra, I think you should spill some more stories or at least a worst best list of comedians? And what about the club made you not take Dave Chappelle seriously? I knew Caroline Rhea well, and she could be….difficult on a personal level, but publicly she’s very nice and likes kids, I’m so glad you had a good experience with her!

      • terra says:

        @laurelcanyoner: I’ll have to put some thought into how that list would go and will try to share it the next time a comedian story comes up after I’ve finished it. I came across a few of my childhood journals a few weeks ago, so I’ll skim through a couple and see what I wrote back then. I’m glad my Caroline Rhea experience went well too – that one would have upset if it hadn’t.

        I can say that Louis C.K. being awful was not a surprise to me. And the Chappelle thing partly involves the dude spending an afternoon staring down my (awful) mother’s shirt. I just couldn’t with him after that.

        I also met a decent amount of “celebrities” of different stripes at the salons my Grandma ran. Short list there? Clint Black and Beyonce, yes; Faye Dunaway and Barbara Bush, no. (I swore BB was stalking me there for a while. One holiday season I ran into her at least six times in around four weeks at all manner of places in town.)

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        Terra
        I guess it’s how you meet people.
        Barbara bush was a regular in Maine as they had a home here and she was lovely every time I met her in a casual setting.
        While friends of mine met Beyoncé in a professional setting and I can’t really listen to her songs the same way.
        Context is big.

        I’m also under the assumption many comedians were under the influence of certain powders and liquids in comedy clubs which can change behavior.

      • terra says:

        @Wiglet Watcher: Yes, I understand context. I just refrained from mentioning how obviously high Chappelle was almost every time I met him (about four different trips, six individual times I was in his presence in some way?).

        Also context, a few bits of this story: I first met Barbara Bush when I was 5 or so. My family has a few connections to the Bush family, but I knew her mostly because she and Bush the Elder lived just down the street from the salon/day spa my grandmother ran. I had quite distinctive BRIGHT red curly hair that people used to go crazy for. We met again and again over the years for various reasons and she usually remembered me and we would make small talk, both of us perfectly polite.

        in 2007 I was at the salon picking something up for my Grandma despite her not working there any longer when BB came in again. She smiled when she saw me . . . then she looked down and saw my Obama t-shirt. This was during a period when Obama was really beating Bush up in his speeches. From then on she was never anything but rude to me, even being insulting to my little brother (approx. 5 or 6, ironically enough).

        I understand loving your child because my brother is my baby. I named him, held him first, took him everywhere I went, my name was his first word, etc.. That she was so terrible to him – more than once, so it wasn’t a fluke – is why I held a negative opinion toward her. As you said: context. That was my experience. I’m glad yours was pleasant. Mine was too . . . until it wasn’t any longer.

      • Tursitops says:

        Canadian! We’re not all maple syrup-sweet, and we have our fair share of idiots, but you do often hear good things about some of those who have found fame outside our beloved country.

  2. OriginalLala says:

    He is a horse’s a** so maybe he does need a dewormer. But seriously, why is the anti-vaxx crowd so dumb to refuse safe effective vaccines but they happily down horse dewormers, bleach and other stupid ineffective treatments?

    • Roserose says:

      This is what I don’t get either. Humanity has a long way to go, I suppose.

    • Sean says:

      They’re afraid of having to admit they were wrong and potentially feel humiliated.

      They’ve based so much of their identity of these conspiracy theories that an admission of fault would be devastating to their fragile egos.

      So they buy into conspiracies about horse dewormer, etc because it allows them to perceive themselves as being “smarter” than the actual experts.

      • Miranda says:

        You’d think shitting your guts out would register as far more humiliating than simply saying, “I was wrong”.

      • Korra says:

        I saw the word “ego death” get mentioned on one of the subreddits that mock QAnon followers, anti-vaxxers, and covid deniers. It seems that for the few people who were willing to turn away their views and admit wrongdoing, embarrassment was a common feeling. People can be stubborn to admit wrongdoing to begin with; having to be self-reflective about the harm you caused makes the process even more painful.

      • Cacec04 says:

        Here’s the thing though, it’s not just them feeling humiliated by the liberals they hate by admitting they were wrong, but I suspect they’re scared of being ostracized by the right wing cult they’re in by admitting they’re wrong. Some don’t admit they’re wrong because they’re making money by grifting this conspiracy cult, others don’t admit it because they find being a part of this cult gives them a sense of belonging and superiority-and THAT is something I don’t think they want to lose.

        Thank you for this! Also, f*#k Joe Rogan.

      • Christine says:

        Thank you! I was not looking forward to a deep dive on why Ivermectin has become a part of the conversation, and your link explains it without having to weed through crazy people.

    • Mac says:

      Ivermectin is the new hydroxychloroqunine. If you live in an alternate reality you need and alternate cure.

      • Shawna says:

        Well said.

      • Tursitops says:

        Yes, but Hydrchqn came along when the vaccine was not widely available. Now people have a choice, and they are choosing an unproven *treatment* over a proven *prophylactic*. No equivalency there.

  3. Bryn says:

    Joe rogan is a goddammit moron. I’m sure he’s not taking horse deformer but the ivermectin they use to treat people for ringworm. But the idiots that listen to him will go out and get the horse deformer because they don’t know the difference. I dont get why people are so hesitant about vaccines but will take anything else to try and treat themselves.

    I’m so sick of people.

    • Betsy says:

      They’re the same medicine, just different concentrations as far as I’m aware. I’m not advocating for it; it does nothing for covid.

      • Bryn says:

        Yeah not sure why they want to try an anti parasite drug on a virus. Just another dumb thing to avoid a scientific medically safe vaccine.

      • goofpuff says:

        Yes, the problem is the people who just buy the horse dewormer have no concept of what actually is the correct dose. (hint: not the amount for a horse) and just take it as is.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        Betsy
        It’s more than concentration of active ingredients.
        There’s active and inactive ingredients in many human and animal medications. Delivery methods. These do play a role and the medicine you get as a human from a doctor will not be the same as what a horse would get, but just a lower concentration.

        So many people are talking like this is the same as a horse would receive and that’s just more misinformation. The drug also won’t help you, but still people need to get the facts right. Show your work. Do your research.

    • Robyn says:

      Let’s be real – he either doesn’t have it and is using it as a bit or he does and is receiving actual treatment (which he can more than afford) but still speaking out of the other side of his mouth. In both cases, he profits. That’s it.

    • april says:

      Bryn, you are exactly right. They say they take these crazy things but I also doubt people like him do. They are just stirring up trouble. I don’t believe a word that comes out of these antivaxer’s mouths when it comes to their insane treatments, their covid status, and their vaccination status. I think they will lie about anything for attention.

  4. Merricat says:

    I think Joe Rogan should give bleach a try.

  5. lanne says:

    If he wants to shit out the lining of his intestines and destroy his gut microbiome, he’s welcome to do so. I just saw a commercial about Heartguard worm medicine for dogs. One of the ingredients is…ivermectin. I wonder if those covidiots are going to start taking Fidos heartworm medicine now instead of horse paste.

    “I don’t trust the vaccine…there’s not enough data on it. So I’m going to medicate myself with veterinary medicine formulated for horses and sheep.”

    Who are the Sheeple now???

    • Karla says:

      Was about to say the same:
      You buy cheap sausage and other highly processed food at discount prices but you don’t trust the vaccine because you „don’t know what’s in it“.

    • Bryn says:

      Too bad the irony is lost on the sheep lol…or should I say horse

    • Grace says:

      Exactly! It’s what my dog takes every month to prevent heartworms. Go ahead Joe, take all the medicine you need, you’re still an asshat.

  6. Amy Bee says:

    Nah he’s anti-vax, if he’s taking the horse dewormer.

  7. Wiglet Watcher says:

    Ivermectin can be given to humans and can be effective, but not for Covid in any way. It’s for parasites.
    And the ivermectin a Horse receives is not the same as what a Human receives. So, saying he’s taking drugs meant for horses is misleading and incorrect.

    Rogan dances around being anti vax and I believe he is. He’s also a shock jock that does insult comedy and made his fortune on being a dim witted contrarian.

    • Brontë says:

      I think he is probably vaccinated.

      He was also quoted as saying he encourages many people to take them. (the vaccines).

      Doesn’t sound anti- vax to me.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        I’ve heard his podcast and know people that listen to him regularly. He often contradicts the science in a roundabout way. Or has people on that do so.

  8. SusanRagain says:

    Joe Rogan = STFU!
    $5 says he happily is using steroids but is anti-vax.

    Who is taking advice from Joe Rogan? Good lord.

    • BlueSky says:

      You read my mind! I was about to write that he looks like he injects himself with steroids so taking horse dewormer is not shocking to me. “I don’t trust the vaccine now excuse me while I head to Tractor Supply to get a medication that is for an animal!”

    • I'm With The Band says:

      Unfortunately, many people take this fools advice. My partner is a fanboi (sigh) and we’ve had many an argument about the ridiculous things this man says, his epic lack of responsibility for someone with such a huge platform, and all the bullshit he spews about COVID and ivermectin. It’s really disheartening the sheer number of people (mostly white men) who take this muppet’s word as gospel. And don’t even get me started on DMT, which my partner has taken numerous times and now thinks he has some ridiculous spiritual insight into other realms 🤦‍♀️. Joe Rogan is close to becoming a deal-breaker in this house

    • Miranda says:

      Seriously, he has the physique of a Dollar Tree knock-off action figure of The Rock. Chest is too big, Popeye-fucked-a-T rex arms, head like that one dude in the waiting room from Beetlejuice.

    • Robyn says:

      Sadly, millions of people are, including folks you know and love. They love him because “he asks questions and has good guests” but he’s actually a contrarian who will be affected by any of the issues he pontificates on. He’s the meat head Bill Maher.

  9. Izzy says:

    FFS if he started feeling better that fast it was almost certainly the prednisone. It may suppress immune response but before it does, it will make you feel a helluva lot better. Between that and the antibody treatment, he didn’t need the dewormer. He’s already a worm*, no amount of medicine will change that.

    *no offense to actual worms

    • TaraBest says:

      “*no offense to actual worms” has me laughing this morning. Actual worms provide very necessary functions for our planet, wouldn’t want him lumped in with them!

    Why is it still legal to be able to make fake medical claims that are potentially life threatening??? And why oh why are traditional/ social media platforms helping these idiots?

  11. ML says:

    Why is it still legal to be able to make fake medical claims that are potentially life threatening??? And why oh why are traditional/ social media platforms helping these idiots?

    And I hope if he winds up with side effects due to the horse deworming meds that he goes to his vet.

  12. Scal says:

    Wouldn’t get the vaccine because ‘who knows about the science’ and covid isn’t a big deal Gets covid.

    “We immediately threw the kitchen sink at it…..Monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-pak, prednisone, everything. And I also got an anti-D drip and a vitamin drip.”

    So will use junk science but not a free reliable vaccine. It’s disgusting

    • Emma says:

      I don’t know what his doctor is thinking. You do not “throw the kitchen sink at” a body already working hard fighting off COVID. You need specific targeted approaches based on the individual case.

      Prednisone would probably help if he had a lot of inflammation but could actually harm him if he was a normal case with low inflammation. Z pak is for bacterial infections and could actually also be harmful for the body if fighting a *viral* infection like COVID. Ivermectin????? What is ivermectin supposed to help with that relates at all to COVID? A vitamin drip? What is a lot of vitamins supposed to do for COVID? It’s so sad how gullible / cruel people are.

      Monoclonal antibody therapy is what probably actually helped him. He almost certainly did not need the other drugs.

      Even then. Monoclonal antibodies are given with an IV drip that you have to be hooked up to for an hour or more! Just get a quick poke for the vaccine, why is it so awful when it’s so much easier? Why is an hour or more on an IV drip (or three) in a hospital preferable to getting a quick shot at Walgreens?

    • Teebee says:

      I guarantee Rogan threw the kitchen sink at his treatment since that body builder’s story hit the news. He has been spewing garbage science and theories about health, fitness, immunity-building, yada yada yada as a reason to not fear COVID. Also maybe to sell more vitamins, supplements, exercise equipment (*conflict of interest cough cough*).

      I bet when he found out he had it he freaked the f**k out and used his money and connections to protect himself as much as he could. Something that another non-vaccinated body builder could not access…

      He’s a hypocrite, snake oil salesman, self-absorbed, selfish dick. His mass of followers disgust me, everyone who falls for a loud mouthed idiot who used to goad people to drink donkey semen over respected scientists, doctors and epidemiologists deserve everything they get…

  13. Sofia says:

    So people won’t take a researched and tested vaccine for HUMANS but they’ll take untested medicine not for COVID and doses that are for horses? You could not make this up.

  14. caitlinsmom says:

    Didn’t his young children get covid earlier this year?! Or am I confusing him with a similar idiot?

  15. Millennial says:

    Frankly his doctor should be investigated for prescribing this, as well as the pharmacist who dispensed it. Off-label uses for drugs common and fine in many circumstances, but this one is directly harmful.

  16. Plums says:

    This latest random hype for an entirely unrelated, wildly inappropriate medication to treat covid makes me believe more and more that there’s some organized financial fraud going on in certain circles to peddle this shit to covidiots after stocks in said unrelated, wildly inappropriate medications to treat covid are bought. I hope some journalist somewhere looks into that possibility and follows some money to see if that’s the case.

  17. JHo says:

    I think it’s funny. I was prescribed ivermectin for roseaca and didn’t get the script filled. But sure, I’m sure the drug used for skin flare ups and apparently deworming horses is the super secret cure that the big bad government is keeping from everyone 🙄

  18. Diana says:

    Why do so many people like and follow this self important anti-vaxxer including my own husband, BTW! I just do not get his appeal. He is pompous and arrogant and the biggest man-splainer to ever mansplain. It’s so gross,

  19. Ainsley7 says:

    He’s definitely a conspiracy theorist and often people’s gateway to the crazier conspiracies as they go looking for further info on his nonsense. His whole thing is that healthy people have nothing to worry about and he’s super healthy. So, it’s funny to me that he basically panicked when he got COVID and “threw the kitchen sink at it.” It sounds like he got his doctor to prescribe the dewormer rather than taking the kind formulated for animals. Which is so irresponsible of his doctor. Still, I don’t know if he was actually vaccinated or not. I do know that he was clearly unwilling to rely on his health to see him through even though he was willing to put all his “healthy” listeners at risk.

  20. Deanne says:

    One of the possible side effect of this drug is blindness. How stupid are these people? There are literally people on facebook asking “when will my husband’s sight come back?”, because they’ve used this veterinary grade product. I got really depressed yesterday because I feel like we will never be out of this pandemic and it’s all due to the idiocy of so many of our fellow human beings.

    • Lady D says:

      This pandemic has made clear, just how many idiots there are out there. Pre-pandemic you met them in small doses. Now they are everywhere and in huge groups too. There were demonstrations at half a dozen of BC’s biggest hospitals yesterday. The masses are angry at having to get a Covid passport to get into most businesses and fun events like the movies, museums, restaurants, etc. Anywhere people gather, you will need a vaccine passport to enter. The doctors at every hospital were right pissed at the commotion and disruption to their patients.

      • Mercury says:

        @Lady D, yeah I live in BC. Im fully vaxxed. Yet, i don’t believe in a vaccine passport. It is totally unnecessary in my opinion. For what reason?? Why??? We dont have passorts for other deadly diseases. It doesnt make sense to me.

      • Valerie says:

        One of my soon-to-be-former friends went to one in BC since she lives out there now. I was disgusted. These people claim to be salt-of-the-earth humanists while doing shit like this. They don’t care about anyone but themselves. Do they not realize that the hospital serves multiple purposes? There are people going for regular appointments and treatments or just to visit. They never stop to consider that the person they’re harassing might be walking out of the cancer ward after a diagnosis or after watching someone they love die. It isn’t all about COVID. It’s so fucking selfish.

        Sorry for the rant. I’m just fed up.

      • EviesMom says:

        @Mercury but we do have health passports that need to be presented when kids are registered for school etc. I think the rationale for the health passport is to provide an easy & SAmE method of ensuring people are vaccinated. I just took a flight to the states & had to get my nose swabbed in BC and again at my end location… a vaccine passport would have been much more comfortable & cost effective.

      • Deanne says:

        The vaccine passport hysteria I don’t get. It’s a vaccine record and we’ve had them for decades. You have to show it to get into school, to travel to many countries and to work at many jobs where people are vulnerable. Why should the vaccinated population suffer and be put at risk by the selfishness of those who refuse to do there civic duty and get vaccinated, not to mention kids under 12 who can’t get it?I have always had severe reactions to most vaccines and I still got fully vaccinated for Covid and will get the booster if they recommend it. I feel so terribly for the Doctors and health care workers dealing with this crap. These are the same people that the protesters would expect to take care of them and their families if they got Covid. The very people that they are screaming abuse at and threatening. It blows my mind.

      • LainieR says:

        The reason that you don’t have to show your immunization records other than for employment or school prior to COVID was because we’ve basically eliminated exposures to those illnesses. Proof of immunization is going to part of a that strategy since we don’t have a vaccine that is sterilizing.

        The venn diagram between people that think the virus isn’t a big deal, that vaccines aren’t necessary, and then promptly panic when they do get it is a circle.

        Signed a burnt out RN.

  21. Jessica says:

    Yeah, having listened to at least five minutes of his podcast- he’s definitely an anti-vaxxer, even if he won’t admit it publicly. No sympathies, he’s such a douche.

  22. Jamie says:

    I feel like this whole Ivermectin story is a rumor someone started out of spite. They couldn’t get the antivax crowd to take the vaccine for the sake of public health, so instead they created a story to get them to spend more time on the toilet.

    • cassandra says:

      There’s a teeny tiny factual basis for it. A scientific study on the cellular level showed that Ivermectin has anti-viral properties. However, the dosage required to get that level of effectiveness would kill a human.

      I’ve now had patients and their families accuse us of withholding “a life saving treatment” and I just 🤦‍♀️

  23. FC says:

    New rule: If you didn’t vax and you get Covid, you stay home with your horse dewormer. You don’t get actual medicine, and especially not a hospital bed.

  24. Lucy2 says:

    Hundreds of millions of people have gotten the vaccine.
    “I don’t know what’s in it- give me the horse dewormer!”

  25. girl_ninja says:

    The influence that this bobble head fool has over a certain demographic of men is truly staggering. I wish we didn’t spend anytime talking or reporting or even giving this person a thought. He is just a messy man baby who like the smell of his own farts and the sound of his own voice.

    One thing that also drives me bonkers is that he really tries to make it sound like having Covid was no big deal.

    Many American citizens can not afford to pay for the “kitchen sink” of meds that he was able to obtain. And don’t get me started on the ivermectin thing. What an idiot.

  29. Nicole says:

    Ugh, what an ass. Please don’t take dewormer for horses. Our emergency room docs and nurses are over this shit and having to take up a bed for someone that thought they should do this is infuriating.

    • LaraW” says:

      If homo sapiens and its society survive the next 100 years, historical accounts of this time are going to be met with the same incredulity and disbelief that we have towards the beliefs held by individuals 100 years ago, treating the 1918 influenza outbreak with snake oil, laxatives, rotgut, beef gravy and inhaling fumes from nitric acid.

  30. Rapunzel says:

    Y’all, I mentioned in another post my cousin who wanted to give her child ivermectin as a preventative for Covid but changed her mind. Update: found out she lied about changing her mind. She gave the kid ivermectin. 6 yr old. Her mother-in-law is furious. I’m tempted to call CPS, but I have no proof. The child, meanwhile, is “not feeling too good” but cousin thinks that’s Covid, not the ivermectin and that she “waited too long” to give the child the medicine. I think she’s gonna give more ivermectin. Pray for the child. I’m very worried.

    F–k Joe Rogan

    • Meghan says:

      WTAF. It’s one thing to take it for yourself (it’s wrong and stupid) but to give it to your CHILD?! Did she take it or just give it to her child? Holy crap I can’t.

      My son is 5 and I am terrified of him catching Covid and passing it on to someone else but this is a brand new level of WTF-ery.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Meghan- she took it herself too… hubby and college age son did too. They all caught it because they’re unvaxxed.

        It’s insane. I’m embarrassed to be related to her.

      @Rapunzel

      I al praying for the child.

    • Robyn says:

      Call CPS. Period. Her child could die.

    • Valerie says:

      I’m going to suggest you put in a call to the authorities.

    • Rapunzel says:

      Mother-in-law called CPS. I had figured she would. I don’t think they’re gonna do much though. We’ll see.

    I dgaf what Joe Rogan does, I just care about the reach he has. He spouts off nonsense and his listeners eat it up. I remember thinking back during the election how many brain dead Joe Rogan listeners are gonna vote independent because he told them to.
    The antivax stuff should have lost him his show, but Spotify won’t do anything about it. They are just as culpable.

  32. Lkay says:

    There is ivermectin that is prescribed for humans for the treatment of round worm. It has a very specific use in people and I know someone who was prescribed it for long term COVID symptoms. this person says it helped with their lingering symptoms. That being said there’s no studies that says it helps. Funny how people won’t get the vaccine that has been studied for that specific purpose but are willing to take something that hasn’t been approved for COVID.

    Moral of the story: Only take medication that is prescribed to you by your doctor!

    • stagaroni says:

      Can you explain why it was prescribed to her and for what? I know that some people had rashes from Covid. Is this what it was treating?

  33. Grant says:

    Never trust someone or something venerated exclusively by straight, white men.

  34. K says:

    Fitting medication for a horse’s ass.

  35. Robyn says:

    Checking to see how many mutual follows I have with Joe Rogan is so depressing and disappointing. Uggggghh.

  36. Val says:

    And when he gets better due to the monoclonal antibodies, he will preach it was the worm meds and the maga cult will point to it as “PROOF” that it works!

  37. TisMe says:

    Joe Rogan WAS, IS and ALWAYS will be a douchelord among douches.

  38. JillyBean says:

    Can we start a rumour that ricin and strychnine also cures covid for those refusing to get vaxxed? These pinheads are messing up global recovery for everyone and their as$ backward ideologies.

    • Golly Gee says:

      Yes, and have the rumor include specific instructions such as making sure to take a very large dose of Strychnine. Anything less will only make the Covid worse. Are you up for it, Joe?

    • schmootc says:

      Throw in some arsenic for kicks!

  39. Valerie says:

    Seems like an awfully drastic measure to take against something that’s no worse than the flu. Could it be… is it possible… that it IS worse than the flu?

  40. pottymouth pup says:

    he’s a rich celebrity(ish) and he just said ivermectin so he may very well have gotten his physician or someone from one of the QAnon medical groups like “america’s front line doctors” to provide him with the ivermectin tablets for humans normally prescribed to treat GI parasites

  41. Rose says:

    Fine. Poop out your intestines, see if I care.

  42. AmyB says:

    While Joe Rogan DOES say don’t listen to me, I am not a medical doctor, he has millions of followers and listeners to his podcast. And he spouts off ridiculous, bullshit and dangerous nonsense….

    Enough said.

  43. eliza james says:

    He is a DEEPLY disturbed individual rivaling Trump’s narcissism. He is secretly vaxed and spewing this nonsense to keep his equally disturbed “followers” on the hook…all for the love of $$. Stop giving him any more airtime.
