Elon Musk Purchase Of Twitter Makes Joe Rogan GO INSANE & He Finds Out Live On The Joe Rogan Podcast

According to TheNewYorkPost:

Is this the making of a bromance?

Comedian and “cancel-proof” podcaster Joe Rogan has hailed Elon Musk as a “superhero” advocate for free speech following the Tesla head’s divisive $44 billion takeover of Twitter Monday. Rogan heaped praise on the billionaire during a Tuesday episode of the “Joe Rogan Experience” with guest Jessica Kirson.

“Oh s – – t, oh s – – t, Elon Musk just bought Twitter,” gushed the former “Fear Factor” host, who has received fierce backlash over his alleged anti-vaxxer comments, among other controversies. “We got a movie star cut type of a superhero. Like a movie and there was a guy who was like a hero in the movie who happens to be a billionaire who does wild s – – t.”

The comic, who has had Musk on his show a whopping three times, was reacting to news that Twitter’s board of directors had accepted the entrepreneur’s massive offer to buy and privatize the company.

The 50-year-old SpaceX visionary, who will pay $54.20 per share for the firm, has long stated that he wanted to acquire Twitter in order to restore the platform’s status as a bastion of free speech.

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said in a statement.

However, the power play split Twitter users with right-wing personalities lavishing praise upon the supposed free-speech crusader. Meanwhile, pearl-clutching leftist celebrities threatened to depart the platform, citing fears that the regime change would turn it into a haven for hate — although, as of Wednesday morning, the majority of “Twitter quitters’ ” accounts were still up and running.

Rogan, for one, thought the acquisition was “f – – king amazing,” adding that the purchase is “vital” for a “functioning democracy.”
