Joe Rogan speaks on Jason Aldean controversy

The outrage over country music artist Jason Aldean’s “Try That In A Small Town” continues and Joe Rogan is the latest celebrity to speak out about it. He went to his podcast to share his thoughts with author and professor Gad Saad.

Joe seems to think the outrage isn’t really justified and he gave his reasons why. He said, “I’m not saying that that’s the greatest song the world’s ever known, but the level of outrage coming from people who are upset about that song is so strange when there are hundreds of rap songs out there that are infinitely worst. And also enjoyable.”

Joe continued to say, “No complaints at all. And we’re not even talking about old stuff. There’s new stuff too. There’s hip-hop, there’s wild rock songs, there’s a lot of wild sh*t. And to be focusing on that one?”

His podcast guest also chimed in saying that some rap songs promote misogyny and glorify violence.

Joe Rogan went further and pointed out that there is nothing racial about this song. In fact, he blamed a lot of white people for the violence that ensued following George Floyd’s death. He said, “The racial aspect of it was crazy, because the real Antifa problems that were happening during the BLM, I think there was a lot of White people doing that, wasn’t it? It was a lot of lost liberal Whites who are very angry, who decided to take up this movement and smash things.”

Still, that hasn’t stopped many from protesting the song that simply describes the close-knit ties that form in small towns. Many took the song to be pro-lynching based on it being filmed outside of a courthouse where a lynching took place in 1927.

The video was removed from CMT

One of the top gun control activists, Shannon Watts, went to Twitter to take credit for the video by Aldean being removed from CMT. However, her tweet backfired when the majority of responses were in favor of Aldean. In fact, many pointed out that she just promoted it and helped push it to the number one spot.

Not only did she try to sway everyone to think the song promoted gun violence, but she also jumped in calling it racist as well. She continues to try and cancel Aldean as support for the singer continues to grow.

However, as Joe Rogan pointed out, “So, like, the racial aspect of it – there’s nothing racial about the lyrics.”
