Joe Rogan apologises for racial slur after video surfaces

NEW YORK (AP) – Spotify’s popular United States (US) podcaster Joe Rogan apologised Saturday after a video compilation surfaced that showed him using a racial slur in clips of episodes over a 12-year span.

The mea culpa came after Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter India.Arie posted the compilation on Instagram and announced that she was removing her music from Spotify’s streaming service because of it.

Spotify is facing growing discontent from artists over Rogan’s podcast, which it reportedly paid more than USD100 million to license. Last month, musician Neil Young removed his music over concerns that Rogan was magnifying vaccine scepticism.
