In her Story, she shared clips of the podcast host using the N-word in several episodes, as well a time he referred to a movie theater in a Black neighborhood as “Planet of the Apes.”

“[Joe Rogan] shouldn’t even be uttering the [n-]word. Don’t even say it, under any context. That’s where I stand,” she said.

“I have always stood there…we have this person who is offensive to a lot of people and is paid $100 million. The backbone of Spotify is the music. You pay the musicians .003-.005 percent of a penny and take this money generated over here and use it to invest in this guy? Do you what you want, but take me off. Or pay me too. I mean us. Pay artists like me too. Pay podcasters of color too.”
