Host Joe Rogan is finding himself behind yet another controversy.
Joe Rogan and Green Bay Quarterback Aaron Rodgers made headlines in 2021 for promoting ivermectin, an animal dewormer, as a viable treatment to COVID-19. It should be noted that the FDA has not been approved ivermectin for treating COVID-19 and several have been hospitalized after attempting to self-medicate.
On December 30, Joe Rogan invited Dr. Robert Malone on his podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience.” After consistently promoting vaccine misinformation, Malone found himself on the end of a Twitter ban. Twitter has a five-strike policy for dealing with COVID-19 misinformation.
Although the first strike is simply a warning, the second, third, and fourth strike result in the user’s account being locked for a set period of time. The fifth strike leads to a permanent ban for violating Twitter’s terms of service.
Who Is Dr. Robert Malone?

Believe it or not, Dr. Robert Malone is actually credited with inventing mRNA technology. mRNA vaccines use messenger RNA in order to create an immune response in the body which helps boost the body’s defense against viruses. Although he helped many with his technology, he has been heavily criticized for his stance against the COVID-19 vaccine.
Malone, who had been heavily criticizing the government and media, found himself permanently suspended by Twitter only a day before appearing on Joe Rogan’s podcast.
The tweet that led to a ban was a link to a video. The caption read, “The Pfizer inoculations for COVID-19 – More Harm Than Good- VIDEO. Pfizer 6 month data shows that Pfizer’s COVID 19 inoculations cause more illness than they prevent. Plus, an overview of the Pfizer trial flaws in both design and execution.”

Before this, Malone also encouraged parents to not vaccinate their children, saying, “The reason they are giving you to vaccinate your child is a lie. Your children represent no danger to their parents or grandparents. It’s actually the opposite, their immunity after getting Covid is critical to save their family if not the world from this disease.”
Marjorie Taylor Green Banned For Sharing COVID-19 Misinformation
Conservative Majorie Taylor Greene was also permanently banned from Twitter earlier today.
The George Representative’s personal Twitter account – @mtgreenee – was banned after spreading misinformation concerning COVID-19 for the fifth time. Her official Twitter account is still active.
The final straw that led to her permanent suspension was a now-deleted tweet showing a chart labeled “Reported Deaths by Vaccine Type from 1990-Present.” Greene wrote, “Before Covid, Reported deaths from vaccines were taken seriously and dangerous vaccines were stopped. After Covid, extremely high amount of covid vaccine deaths are ignored and the government forced vaccine mandates to increase.”
The misleading chart was pulled from a government database of unverified data called the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, which relies on self-reported data from patients and doctors.
Shortly after the ban, Greene released a statement that read:
“Maxine Waters can go to the streets and threaten violence on Twitter, Kamala and Ilhan can bail out Black Lives Matter terrorists on Twitter, CNN and the rest of the Democrat Propaganda Media can spread Russia collusion lies, and just yesterday the Chief spokesperson for terrorist IRGC can tweet mourning Soleimani, but I get suspended for tweeting VAERS statistics.”
“Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth.”
“That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies. They can’t successfully complete a Communist revolution when people tell the truth.”
“Social media platforms can’t stop the truth from being spread far and wide. Big Tech can’t stop the truth. Communist Democrats can’t stop the truth.”
“I stand with the truth and the people. We will overcome!”
