Joe Rogan is treading dangerously in recent times as the UFC commentator just cannot catch a break from getting into trouble.
Legendary UFC commentator Joe Rogan has got himself into quite a bit of controversy in the past and he has taken full accountability. However, Joe wouldn’t have thought in his wildest dreams that a harmless picture of his dog, Marshall would get him into trouble with the social media app, Instagram.
Joe has been very vocal about online platforms silencing the voices of many trying to propagate a narrative of their own. It is hardly a surprise that someone like Rogan would get into trouble with an online platform for posting a picture of his dog. Recently, Rogan posted a picture of his dog which has now been flagged by Instagram for “violating guidelines”.
Following the ban, Rogan once again posted on his Instagram account yesterday reacting to the removal of his post. The UFC commentator runs a separate account for his dog Marshall who has gained quite the fame from the JRE podcast.
Joe Rogan reacts to Instagram’s flagging
“I’m sure this is the algorithm or some mistake, but my dog @marshallmaerogan’s post got removed for being against “our guidelines on violence and incitement” for a picture of him sitting next to a dead tarantula we found in our house with the caption, “Well that’s it, we’re just going to have to burn the whole house down,” wrote Rogan on his Instagram post.
Rogan has the biggest podcast in the world right now with millions of listeners. Joe got into trouble recently for voicing his opinions on the word “groomers”. Despite his controversies from his podcast, UFC and Joe have a great relationship and UFC boss Dana White has made sure none of the backlash Rogan faces, affects his role as a commentator in some of the biggest fight events.
Rogan’s last appearance for UFC was at UFC 274 earlier this month when he called the PPV event held at Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona.
