Joe Rogan has never shied away from accepting the criticism and disapproval that the Internet often shows him for his many controversial attitudes and statements.
The comedian and veteran UFC commentator appears to be doing the same after UFC 264.
Joe Rogan received a lot of backlash from a certain section of MMA fans after the pay-per-view event for interviewing Conor McGregor in the Octagon while he was sitting on the floor with a broken leg. Offering the microphone to Conor McGregor led the Irishman to address his opponent Dustin Poirier and his wife Jolie Poirier atypically in delirium.
Conor McGregor himself has also been criticized for his comments. However, many people condemn Joe Rogan and criticize his actions for being insensitive. The internet’s unofficial rule is that there must be multiple memes to attest the same thing when someone does something worth judging or praising.
Joe Rogan shares a controversial 9/11 meme about himself
After UFC 264, several memes surfaced online showing Joe Rogan with his microphone trying to interview the most vulnerable people while they were in agony.
In a recent Instagram post, Joe Rogan shared perhaps the crowd’s most controversial and questionable meme, in which he was photographed in a historic and heartbreaking image of the Twin Towers shortly after the 9/11 attack. Joe Rogan attempts to interview the World Trade Center towers as they stand in fire and smoke and near demolition.
Joe Rogan previously shared another meme in which he was cut into the iconic black and white image of the Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk Thich Quang Duc, who burned himself to death on the streets of Saigon in 1963. The monk did this to draw attention to the persecution of Buddhists by the South Vietnamese government under the leadership of Ngo Dinh Diem, an ardent Catholic.
While these are actual images from history that have great significance to humanity, there are other light-hearted Joe Rogan memes on the internet as well. One shows him trying to interview a nearly dead Tony Stark after the snapshot at the end of the film Avengers: Endgame. Another shows Rogan interviewing a limbless Anakin Skywalker after Obi-Wan Kenobi defeated him on the volcanic planet Mustafar Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. There is even one game of Thrones Meme depicting Rogan interviewing a devastated Jon Snow after driving a sword through Daenerys Targaryen’s heart.
