American comedian and podcaster Joe Rogan issued a warning about woke culture on his ‘Joe Rogan Experience podcast on Monday. In a fiery prediction of the future of woke culture, while speaking to fellow comedian Joe List, Mr Rogan claimed “it will eventually get to straight white men are not allowed to talk.” He explained how there “are people that are taking advantage of this weirdness in our culture” and that human beings should just be “nice to each other”. His fiery claims are the latest example of Mr Rogan voicing his strong opinions to listeners.
Mr Rogan claimed: “You can never be woke enough, that is the problem, it keeps going.
“It keeps going further and further and further down the line and if you get to the point where you capitulate where you agree to all these demands.
“It will eventually get to ‘straight white men are not allowed to talk’.”
And in a fiery statement, the UFC commentator said: “Because it is your privilege to express yourself when other people of colour have been silenced throughout history.”

Joe Rogan has hosted the Joe Rogan Experience since 2009 and has interviewed a host of celebrities, musicians, politicians and famous faces during that time.
The comedian has described himself as socially liberal, supporting same-sex marriage, gay rights, women’s rights, recreational drug use, universal health care, and universal basic income.
The term woke, which indicates a person’s awareness of social issues, has taken on negative connotations among the Conservative political sphere.
However, when questioned about US President Joe Biden pursuing woke policies, Prime Minister Boris Johnson insisted “there’s nothing wrong” about being aware of one’s social surroungdings.
