Joe Rogan is considering suing CNN, specifically for what its White House correspondent Jim Acosta said in regards to the podcaster’s COVID-19 treatment.
Rogan appears to have fully recovered from his recent bout with COVID-19 and is clearly upset with how the media reported his use of the controversial drug, Ivermectin. Just last week Rogan announced he had tested positive for COVID-19 and taken Ivermectin, a drug routinely used to deworm horses. It’s also frowned upon for human use according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
On the Sept. 7 episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” the host was teased by his guest, Tom Segura, who referred to him as “Horse Worm Rogan,” a reference to the fact that versions of ivermectin are used to deworm livestock.
Rogan, 54, said he was “feeling weary” last Saturday evening and developed a fever and headache overnight.
“So we threw the kitchen sink at it, all kinds of meds,” Rogan said in a video post to his Instagram page.
Rogan said he recovered in 3 days after taking monoclonal antibodies, Ivermectin, Z-pak, prednisone, IV vitamin drip – and the media melted down.
CNN, New York Times, ABC, and all other fake news outlets attacked Joe Rogan for taking “horse dewormer” – Ivermectin has been used on humans for decades but now it’s all hands on deck to attack the effective medication.
“Bro, do I have to sue CNN?” he said. “They’re making shit up! They keep saying I’m taking horse dewormer. I literally got it from a doctor. It’s an American company. They won the Nobel Prize in 2015 for use in human beings and CNN is saying I’m taking horse dewormer. They must know that’s a lie.”
He also added “Multiple doctors told me to take it. CNN was saying I am a distributor of misinformation,” he said, adding, “I don’t know what’s going on, man. You know, there is a lot of speculation. One of the speculations involves the emergency use authorization for the vaccines. That, in order for there to be an emergency use authorization, there has to be no treatment for a disease.”
Rogan strongly believes that Ivermectin can treat coronavirus and the drug has a bad reputation from medical experts who are “pretending they don’t really work or they are conspiracy theories.”
“The grand conspiracy is that the pharmaceutical companies are in cahoots to try and make anybody who takes this stuff look crazy,” he said. “But what’s crazy is look how better I got [sic]! I got better pretty quick, b****.”
