The podcaster came under fire for a resurfaced interview, however, many of Rogan's fans mocked the attempt to cancel him.
Joe Rogan is under fire for resurfaced clips showing him laughing at his friend's story about coercing women into having oral sex.
In a 2011 video from his podcast "The Joe Rogan Experience," the host couldn't contain his laughter as his guest, Joey "Coco" Diaz, said female comedians exchanged sexual favors to receive stage time while he was working at a comedy venue called The Belly Room.
"You think I'm f--king kidding? Yeah, you've got to suck my d--k to get up to The Belly Room," Diaz began. "I'll make a call for you."
In this clip, one of Rogan's best friends @madflavor admits to not letting female comedians stage time unless they gave him a blowjob. If you are one of the girls, please speak up, now's the time. 3/7 pic.twitter.com/oNsj2GBQGp
"That's the f--king gateway into Hollywood, everybody knows that," he added.
Rogan then inquired, "How many girls did you have do that?"
"20," answered Diaz, as Rogan threw back his head laughing and began clapping his hands in the air.
DIaz then recalled how "this little blonde open mic chick" would perform oral sex on him before her sets.
How many victims of sexual assault don’t come forward because of shit like this? No. Absolutely FUCK THAT. Men should not be allowed to speak to or about women that way. I said what I said. Fuck Joe Rogan and anyone who associates with him or finds him funny. Get away from me.
"She was tremendous," Diaz continued. "She finally freaked out. When she got to Hollywood, she was beautiul and when she left she had dirty f--king nails.
He said she eventually wrote him a letter saying he "broke" her, which made Rogan laugh again.
Not how it works. Again, even if your bro sensibilities disagree, using “a position of authority to coerce otherwise unwanted sexual activity” out of someone fits the legal definition of rape all across America, my man. It’s no different than demanding sex in a job interview.
And Rogan clapped again as Diaz went into more lurid details about the story.
On Friday night, Rogan's name began to trend after the clip was shared online, causing some followers to call for his cancellation.
"How many victims of sexual assault don't come forward because of shit like this? No. Absolutely F--K THAT. Men should not be allowed to speak to or about women that way. I said what I said. F--k Joe Rogan and anyone who associates with him or finds him funny. Get away from me," wrote one user.
They really tryna to cancel Joe Rogan and Joey Diaz for being comedians, Woke Twitter is annoying af...🤢🤮
Another shared, "If Joe Rogan doesn't issue a public apology for this sick sexual coercion laugh session & take corrective action to learn about sexual violence, .@spotify should cancel him."
However, many of his fans were part of the trending thread and voiced their support for Rogan, mocking any calls for cancellation.
"They really tryna to cancelJoe Rogan and Joey Diaz for being comedians, Woke Twitter is annoying af," shared a Twitter user.
if you laugh at jokes and ask questions during silent moments people think you have great chemistry. if you sound sure of what you’re saying but occasionally say “maybe i’m wrong” people think you’re a great thinker. put on a bald cap and do that and you can replace joe rogan

Meanwhile, Rogan recently inked a deal with Spotify for $100 million to keep his podcast exclusively on the streaming service.
