Eccentric billionaire Elon Musk, the brains behind Tesla and SpaceX, among other things, recently tried to buy the social media platform Twitter but then backed out of the deal after a disagreement over social media bots. Now Twitter is suing Musk for performance.

What does that have to do with UFC color commentator Joe Rogan?

Rogan struck up a friendship with Musk following the latter’s controversial (and somewhat smoky) appearance on “The Joe Rogan Experience” back in late 2018. Not surprisingly, Rogan was one of many high-profile names listed in the text logs leaked by Kate Conger.

Rogan: Are you going to liberate Twitter from the censorship happy mob?

Musk: “I will provide advice, which they may or may not choose to follow.”

Rogan: “I REALLY hope you get Twitter. If you do, we should throw a hell of a party.”


Why throw a party when you can have a Pajama Jammy Jam?

Rogan has been anti-censorship for the entirety of his career, doubling down on his speak-your-mind philosophy despite multiple cancelation attempts after the 55 year-old podcasting giant hooked up with Spotify for a “gross” amount of money back in May 2020.

The Twitter-Musk trial is expected to start later this month.
