Podcast host and MMA commentator Joe Rogan faced massive backlash, Saturday (June 20), on social media for an old podcast clip that featured him laughing over comments his friend made coercing women to perform oral sex on him.

In the clip from 2011, Rogen can be seen laughing as comedian Joey Coco Diaz brags that he wouldn’t allow female comics onstage unless they perform oral sex on him.

Twitter user ChemicalMishap shared the podcast clip. “In this clip, one of Rogan's best friends @madflavor admits to not letting female comedians stage time unless they gave him a bl**job. If you are one of the girls, please speak up, now's the time,” ChemicalMishap captioned the resurfaced clip featuring Rogan and Diaz.

The podcaster was blasted on social media for the concerning clip.

According to the New York Post, some targeted Spotify for their decision to bringing Rogan on the platform. Spotify signed Rogan for a $100 million contract.

Melanie Bracewell, a comedian from New Zealand, also shared Rogan’s clip and wrote that it makes her “physically sick.” In her tweet, Bracewell also mentioned comedian Chris D’Elia.

The clip shared is part of a Twitter thread on sexual misconduct rampant in the Los Angeles comedy circuit. People started calling out other celebrities and comedians after multiple women alleged that comedian Chris D’Elia sexually harassed them when they were underage.

Meanwhile, he denied all allegations against him. D’Elia, who was seen in Netflix’s series “You,” told TMZ that he “never knowingly pursued any underage women at any point.”

He stated that all his past relationships were “legal and consensual.” The actor-comedian added that he never exchanged any inappropriate photographs with the folks who have tweeted about him.

“That being said, I really am truly sorry. I was a dumb guy who ABSOLUTELY let myself get caught up in my lifestyle. That’s MY fault. I own it. I’ve been reflecting on this for some time now and I promise I will continue to do better,” D’Elia said.
