Rumble, a conservative video platform that’s a direct competitor to YouTube, is offering popular podcast host Joe Rogan a “legit offer” to come over to the platform.
In a statement released on Monday, Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski offered Rogan $100 million for a four-year deal.
“Dear Joe. We stand with you, your guests, and your legion of fans in desire for real conversation. So we’d like to offer you 100 million reasons to make the world a better place,” Pavlovski wrote in the letter.
“How about you bring all your shows to Rumble, both old and new, with no censorship, for 100 million bucks over four years?” Pavlovski continued. “This is our chance to save the world. And yes, this is totally legit.”
Spotify CEO Daniel Ek announced that the company will not be “silencing” Rogan after a video compilation surfaced over the weekend of him repeatedly using the “n-word.”
In a statement released late on Sunday, Ek said the company would stand by Rogan after he apologized.
