Joe Rogan Under Fire Again For Saying That Homeless People Should Be Shot

Here we go again.

Another day, another stupid Joe Rogan controversy originating with something dumb he said on his podcast – although this time I think I’m probably on his side for once.

Rogan was speaking to comedian Tom Segura when the two found themselves discussing the homeless situation in Los Angeles. I’m not really sure how they ended up getting onto this idea, but Rogan then suggested that maybe they should start shooting homeless people as a solution to the problem. What a visionary.

Anyway, here’s what the pair of them had to say:

Tom Segura: When you see stuff like that on the streets, at least in Los Angeles or California, that’s protected property. Like by law. That’s that’s person’s property by law.

Joe Rogan: Oh, a homeless person’s property is protected?

Segura: Absolutely. If you were to try to move that or take that—

Rogan: You’d get arrested. Hilarious. But they wouldn’t arrest you if you shot somebody. Maybe you should just go shoot the homeless people.

Segura: I like your ideas.

Ehhh. I suppose it isn’t too nice how they’re talking about homeless people up there even to begin with but I think that they’re pretty much joking when they actually suggest murdering them. The problem is that Rogan’s listeners are known to take what he says a bit too seriously and there’s already a 47% increase in the murders of homeless people in the Los Angeles over the past year, so his comments probably aren’t going to be that useful here.

Classic Joe Rogan though – what do we expect from the guy by now? However, I think that some of these comments calling him out are probably a bit much as it was quite clearly a joke:

I think it’s probably a bit too easy to rip Rogan for his dumb comments – I should know as I do it all the time – but I really think this time was a joke and people shouldn’t be so outraged about it. As long as there isn’t an increase in murders of homeless people in Los Angeles inspired by Joe Rogan over the next couple of days, then hopefully we won’t have too much to worry about. Rogan loves this shit so it’s not like complaining about his stupid opinions is going to do any good anyway. Just saying.
