Liberal rocker Neil Young wanted Spotify to remove Joe Rogan's podcast for having controversial opinions on coronavirus and the vaccine. However, when Spotify instead removed Young's content, he was not a happy camper. He thought his tantrum would get him what he wanted, and he was wrong.
Now he is urging Spotify employees to quit in protest over CEO Daniel Ek's support of Rogan instead of bowing to the cancel culture mob.
“To the workers at SPOTIFY, I say Daniel Ek is your big problem — not Joe Rogan,” Young wrote on his website. “Ek pulls the strings. Get out of that place before it eats up your soul. The only goals stated by Ek are about numbers — not art, not creativity.”
“Notice that Ek never mentions the Medical Professionals who started this conversation,” he added. “Look, one last time – at the statements Ek has made.”
That was in reference to the bogus open letter signed by 270 doctors, professors, and physicians demanding that Rogan be removed from the platform.
Spotify initially backed Rogan fully. However, once other artists and podcasters joined the mob and began removing their work, the platform tossed them a bone and added "content advisory" to shows that discuss coronavirus.
“It’s become clear to me that we have an obligation to do more to provide balance and access to widely-accepted information from the medical and scientific communities guiding us through this unprecedented time,” Ek said.
On Sunday, Ek sent sent a letter to employees encouraging them not to quit.
“I want to make one point very clear — I do not believe that silencing Joe is the answer,” he wrote. “We should have clear lines around content and take action when they are crossed, but canceling voices is a slippery slope.”
