Why is ‘Joe Rogan Dead’ trending?

Joe Rogan is known for his questionable jokes about Covid-19, racial slurs and liberal use of the “N-word” as well as transphobic comments.

In this atmosphere, several people became convinced that the podcaster had died after becoming the subject of another death hoax on Twitter on September 19, 2022.

In fact, some old posts claiming he had died resurfaced, sending the internet into a frenzy with #RIPJoeRogan.

This comes less than six months after the comedian fell victim to yet another sickening hoax.

Back then, the allegation began on a Twitter account called “Joe Rogan Headquarters” – @joerogannhq – which said the UFC commentator died in April 2022.

The account tweeted, “We are saddened to announce the passing of Joe Rogan.

“He passed away peacefully at his home this afternoon. We will share more details as they come in regarding his family’s wishes.”

The account went so far as to create a fake screenshot of a statement made by UFC President Dana White.

The manipulated statement read: “The entire UFC family is devastated to hear of Joe Rogan’s death.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones and we will ensure he continues his legacy.”

After Rogan started trending on Twitter, other pranksters continued the hoax, with one posting a fake statement from Rogan’s family.

The sham statement read, “Joe has accomplished so much in his short time here and we take comfort in the fact that he has inspired as many of you as he has inspired us.”

News sites soon began investigating the claims, revealing that the controversial comedian had actually been the victim of an unsavory hoax.

What did Joe Rogan say about the death hoax?

Podcaster Joe Rogan Experience didn’t specifically respond to the hoax.

However, eagle eyes will have noticed that he posted a message on his Facebook page congratulating American submission grappler Gordon King Ryan on his win over Brazilian Andre Galvão.

Rogan’s post read: “Congratulations to the king @gordonlovesjiujitsu! He made it look easy. Exactly as he said.

“Incredible. It was an honor to be there and watch in person.”

Rogan may be open with his podcast guests, but he’s closed when it comes to his own family.

His wife Jessica Ditzel (Jessica Rogan), born in 1975, met the comedian in 2001 while working in a bar.

The couple were married in 2009 and have three children together – Rosy, who was born in 2008, Lola, born in 2010, and Jessica’s daughter from a previous relationship named Kayja Rose, who was born on August 23, 1996.

The Spotify podcaster lives in his $14.4 million, eight-bed home in Austin, Texas.

In February 2022, it was revealed that Rogan had to hire “elite” armed bodyguards to protect his family from bitter backlash against his show.

The family moved into the multimillion-dollar mansion after leaving California in 2020.

The stand-up comedian cited California’s strict Covid lockdowns as one of the reasons he moved from LA to Austin during the pandemic.

So far, Spotify has stood by the podcast, which draws an estimated average audience of 11 million people.
