A newly conducted study claims that women are ‘turned off’ by potential partners who listen to Joe Rogan’s podcast.
Despite the 56-year-old’s podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, being one of the most popular in the world, many people believe that those who listen to him talk are a walking ‘red flag’.
The interviewees were all between 18-34-year-old and were asked whether they considered various behaviours to be a green, beige or red flag in a partner.
53 percent of women said that their partner refusing to see the Barbie movie was a turn-off, while 64 percent of men said that ‘identifying as a communist’ would be an instant red flag.
Interestingly, 55 percent of women then said that listening to Rogan’s podcast was a definite turn-off, while only 35 percent of men agreed.
However, we can’t imagine that Rogan, who reportedly earns over $100,000 for just one episode of his podcast, will be too bothered by the study results.
Last month, the American podcaster made headlines when he defended Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie when speaking to his guest at the time, Post Malone.
In regard to critics who previously called the Mattel-inspired film ‘woke’, Rogan had this to say: "A lot of people are upset about the Barbie movie, and I left perplexed.
“But a lot of it is about the patriarchy, and it’s a comedy, it’s a comedy about dolls. People are upset that it’s this progressive metaphor for life that they’re pushing progressive politics in this, and I’m like, ‘It’s a f**king doll movie!’
"It’s a doll movie. It’s a fun movie about dolls who come to life and try to interact with the real world.”
Doubling down on his statement, the podcaster continued: "No one’s ever done a movie like this before. This is not like anything else you could say. It was a bizarre movie, but it was a fun, silly movie, I laughed.
“But at the end of it I was like, 'How did people get outraged at that?' I know some people personally who said it’s anti-men. I’m like, ‘No, it’s making fun of dorks.’”
Regarding those who slammed the Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling film as being ‘woke’, he continued to say: "They think it’s a super woke movie. But it’s also a movie about how Barbies are the dolls that everyone cares about, and Ken is just a f**king accessory, which is real.
“So when you bring these things into a movie, you make them real life Barbieland, that's how they have to be, because that's how it is in the real world.”
