Comedian and Podcaster Joe Rogan returned to his show Tuesday after a short hiatus due to contracting the COVID-19. Since his last episode, Rogan was diagnosed with the virus and posted a video where he explained his intentions in taking various supplements and medications, including Ivermectin.
Since then, mainstream media has lambasted the podcast host for taking "horse dewormer" medication. "Bro, do I have to sue CNN?" asked Joe Rogan after his guest Tom Segura poked fun at him for being misrepresented by the media.
"They're making sh*t up. They keep saying I'm taking horse dewormer. I literally got it from a doctor," Rogan said. "It's an American company, they won the Nobel Prize in 2015 for use in human beings and CNN is saying I'm taking horse dewormer."
Ivermectin in fact earned a Nobel Prize for its powerful effects in defeating parasites in humans. "They must know that that's a lie," said Rogan in response to CNN alleging Ivermectin is a horse dewormer drug.
In addition to his reaction to the misinformation around his illness, Rogan touched on the social media mob wishing and hoping he became sicker as a result of being unvaccinated and using Ivermectin.
"How crazy is it to you... having people wish you got sicker? Isn't that crazy?" asked Tom Segura.
"I didn't pay attention," Rogan replied. "Well, the good news is I was only sick for a day," he continued.
"Because I wasn't scared during the entire pandemic. What they would like is that when I did get sick, that I was really sick and became really scared and learn my lesson. And instead, it's the worst case scenario for them. Right? I bounced back. About as quick as you f*cking can," Rogan explained.
"They're haters but that's their life. You got to live like that. Imagine spending any time whatsoever wishing that a person felt bad? It's just the dumbest f*cking thing you could ever spend your energy on...But I know, I'd heard that that was going on, but I didn't pay attention to it. It's like, you know, they're weak bitches"
