Joe Rogan says Andrew Tate taught “good lessons” before being “de-platformed”

Podcast star Joe Rogan has claimed that Andrew Tate had issued some “good lessons” for his fans before being “de-platformed” by multiple social media sites.

It would be an understatement to say that Andrew Tate ruled the internet during the summer of 2022.

The former kickboxing star sparked controversy and heated discussions throughout social media with his comments, especially his views on women.

On the other hand, worries about Tate's impact on younger audiences were growing.

As a result, the 35-year-old was banned from Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and YouTube by many social media networks.

Joe Rogan, a Spotify celebrity, has defended the contentious online celebrity, saying that despite his "misogynistic" remarks, the internet star did teach him some valuable things.

Speaking during his podcast on September 3, Rogan admitted that Tate “f**ked up with the misogynist stuff.” But, he made some interesting commentary on other complex topics.

Rogan asserted that Tate had a constructive outlook on his views on drive and ambition.

 “If you just concentrate entirely on your feelings you’re not going to get anywhere and that’s true. That’s a good lesson for people to learn.”

He added that had Tate “just stuck to the pro-male stuff and pro-accountability and pro-discipline” then he could have avoided the ban.

Following on from the scandal, Tate then moved over to the “free speech” podcast platform Rumble. 

It might, however, "severely limit" Tate's impact, according to Rogan, who turned down a $100 million agreement with the platform.

But Rogan maintained that Rumble is "getting bigger people" to sign up, and Tate's inclusion may spur the platform's growth.

Many believed that Tate's widespread media restrictions would make him vanish from the internet.

Tate, though, is still a hot topic of conversation among numerous influential people, so this is probably not the last we'll hear of him.
