Rogan, 55, hosts a semi-regular special called ‘Protect Our Parks’ on The Joe Rogan Experience, which the comic has said in the past is an excuse for he and his guests to ‘talk s**t.’
Thursday’s episode was the seventh edition of Protect Our Parks, which featured Rogan speaking with comics Ari Shaffir, Mark Normand and one-time ‘SNL‘ hire Shane Gillis.
The jokesters were discussing how China often leases pandas to the United States’ zoos and noted that the panda was associated with the country.
‘If there’s an animal that represents America, it’s funny that it’s an eagle,’ Rogan then said.
Comedian Joe Rogan went after the official symbol of America, the bald eagle, during a riff on his wildly successful podcast – which has been controversial as ever lately – on Thursday
He then bizarrely characterized the birds: ‘Because eagles are – it’s kind of a fu**ing soulless, evil creature. That likes to eat dead fish.’
Gillis, who was fired shortly after being hired by Saturday Night Live for past tweets, chimed in: ‘[Benjamin] Franklin was right. We should’ve had a turkey.’
‘Didn’t it used to be a dog?’ Rogan responded. ‘I think at one point in time was the dog. It was like a pit bull. Is that true? That America’s national animals was a pit bull at one point in time?’
Normand than joked that it was actually just the rapper Pitbull.
A few Twitter users responded to Rogan’s comments by taking shots at the hugely influential podcaster and MMA commentator.
One bluntly responded to the jokes by saying: ‘Tell me you’re a boorish ignorant American caucasian male without telling me you’re a boorish ignorant American caucasian male.’
Another obviously referenced the bald part and Rogan saying it was a ‘soulless, evil creature’ by saying: ‘Well… like you, Joe.’
One more responded in kind: ‘Isn’t that what people say about him?’

The podcast is often the target of ire but lately, Rogan has been angering people on all sides of the aisle with his commentary.
Rogan, speaking to writer and podcaster Bridget Phetasy on, was likely reacting to an MSNBC article titled ‘Pandemic fitness trends have gone extreme – literally.’
Phetasy asked: ‘Aren’t they connecting being healthy to the far-right now? I’ve seen so many articles that are like ‘oh the far-right obsession with being in shape,’ like it’s a bad thing somehow.’
The comic and MMA commentator agreed: ‘There’s a giant percentage of our population that is really lazy and fat, and if you want those people on your team you have to say, ‘There’s nothing wrong with being lazy and fat, in fact; not being lazy and fat is actually connected to misogyny, racism, and fascism, and the far right.’
He concluded that people on the left who think this way ‘are like, ‘Great, let’s just eat donuts and just fu**ing vote blue.’
Podcast host extraordinaire Joe Rogan mocked Brian Stelter for his recent panel appearance at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland
Stelters CNN show Reliable Sources was axed back in August. He said he went to Davos on his own dime to cover the global summit, where he hosted a panel about hate speech and disinformation
Last month, Rogan went off on Stelter while discussing the much-maligned global conference that takes place annually in Davos, Switzerland.
He and journalist Matt Taibbi mocked and criticized Stelter’s appearance on a panel that he hosted, calling him ‘basically a prostitute,’ and comfortable grinning around the elitists who seek to impose restrictive laws on the global masses.
However, Stelter said that, unlike Rogan claimed, he had no ‘bosses’ who were puppeteering his panel performance and the journalist traveled to Davos at his own expense.
‘Joe Rogan got it all wrong, again. The World Economic Forum did not ‘hire’ me to ‘work’ in Davos. I went there on my own dime to write about the conference,’ Stelter said in response to a story from the New York Post about Rogan’s bit.
Podcaster Joe Rogan likened the trope that Jews are ‘into money’ to Italians liking pizza in the most recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience
The 55-year-old was decrying cancel culture in the most recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience when he denounced Republicans for booting the Democrat from the House Foreign Affairs Committee over her past anti-Semitic statements.
He brought up a tweet from 2019, in which Omar spoke out against American support for Israel, saying: ‘It’s all about the Benjamins, baby.’
Omar has since apologized for the tweet and conceded that it was anti-Semitic – but Rogan said she should not have done so, claiming: ‘The idea that Jewish people are not into money is ridiculous. That’s like saying Italians aren’t into pizza.’
Almost immediately afterwards, people took to social media to denounce his remarks, saying he was ‘casually spouting anti-Semitism.’
