Joe Rogan Refuses To Force His Fans To Get The Vaccine For A ‘Stupid F***ing Comedy Show’
Podcast host and comedian Joe Rogan is offering a refund rather than requiring his fans get the vaccine to see his show in New York.
After Mayor Bill de Blasio imposed a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on all venues in New York City, comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan decided to offer refunds to fans who do not want to get the shot just to be able to see his upcoming show there.
The 54-year-old New Jersey native, who rose to fame as the host of “Fear Factor” and later became a UFC announcer, is vocal about his common sense brand of personal politics.
When it comes to his show refund offer, Joe Rogan was careful to distinguish that he’s not “anti-vax”, he’s just pro-choice.
Joe Rogan Won’t Force Fans To Get Vaccinated, Offers Refund
On a recent episode of his podcast, Rogan opened up about why he made this decision.
“If someone has an ideological or physiological reason for not getting vaccinated, I don’t want to force them to get vaccinated to see a fucking stupid comedy show,” Rogan explained. “And now they say that everybody has to be vaccinated, and I want everybody to know that you can get your money back.”
While Rogan is not against the coronavirus vaccine, he hasn’t been afraid to call out the CDC and Dr. Anthony Fauci for contradicting themselves about it and lying to the American people on several occasions.

“I am not an anti-vax person,” Rogan said back in April. “In fact, I said I believe they are safe, and I encourage many people to take them. I just said if you’re a young, healthy person, you don’t need it. Their argument was you need it for other people. But that’s a different conversation. And yes, that makes sense.”

Earlier this month, Rogan said that he is firmly against vaccine passports and warned that they could bring us closer to a dictatorship.
“You’re moving one step closer to dictatorship,” Rogan said of vaccine passports. “That’s what the f*** is happening. That’s what’s going to happen with the vaccine passport. That’s what’s going to happen if they close borders. You can’t enter New York City unless you have your papers! You can’t go here unless you have that! You can’t get on a plane unless you do what I say.”
Vaccine Passports Are ‘Dumb’
Joe Rogan also had an explanation for why many people are pushing for vaccine passports.
“Because they’re dumb,” said Rogan. “They don’t understand history, they don’t understand human beings, they don’t understand human nature. They don’t understand the history of every single country that’s ever existed other than the United States.”
“Up until 1776, every (expletive) country that has ever existed was run by dictators, all of them,” he added. “This was the first one where you had elected officials. This was the first experiment in self-government that actually worked. And it created the greatest superpower the world’s ever known.”
Joe Rogan is one of the few celebrities who is not afraid to push back against the narratives that are constantly being pushed by the left.
This guy has a good head on his shoulders, and if this world could use a few more celebrities like him.
