The popular podcaster and UFC commentator would receive a lot of heat for his past podcast episodes. Rogan would get shunned by ‘cancel culture’ for spreading COVID-19 ‘misinformation’. This wouldn’t be all. Sound bytes of him saying the N-word multiple times would also resurface.
While Rogan has been slammed by many people regarding these issues, many MMA fighters would have his back in all of this such as Israel Adesanya and others.
Kevin Lee Speaks On The Matter
Eagle FC’s Lee would also touch up on the controversial situation.
“A lot of these politics, they get played,” Lee told MiddleEasy. “It’s a real shame. When you don’t take someone for face value and you don’t take them for their word, it’s real easy just for the average person to just cling onto these quick snappy little headlines and stuff like that. It’s a shame that our world has been like this. Especially when you take somebody who’s only ever done good.
“Even after that whole racism thing, that came up of him saying the N-word a bunch of times. Honestly him opening up and apologizing a lot— which I give him a lot of respect for. Right after that, I heard a show where he had on a lawyer who got out six different black men that were locked up.”
‘Actions Speak Louder Than Words’
Lee would continue to add on to it.
“Actions speak louder than words, but the average person doesn’t necessarily see that, they didn’t watch the whole show. They didn’t know that he did this activism for the community. I think you can kind of pick and choose and take people’s stuff out of context. It’s a shame. It makes you kind of hate the sh*t. It makes you like, hate doing it. I’ve been on that wave.
“Sometimes I hate being on social media. Sometimes I hate communicating with people because it can always be taken out of context. So it’s like, maybe I should just do actions and not say anything. Even though that’s not where we want to be either. You got a voice, it’s worth something. It’s not always worth something bad, especially if you don’t have no ill intention behind it.
“One day maybe we’ll figure out a way to solve these types of issues. But one thing we can’t do is turn our back on each other, even when you do like make little mistakes or slip up. That comes in everybody’s life. At some point, I’m going to say some dumb sh*t. I have said some dumb sh*t. It’s real easy for people to write people off. I think that’s just a f*cked up way to be. It’s just a f*cked up culture.”
Lee will make his Eagle FC debut on March 11th against Diego Sanchez.
