Musician and icon Neil Young has posted an open letter demanding Spotify remove his music as he doesn’t want to be on a platform that supports Joe Rogan’s vaccination views.
News.com.au has reported that the open letter has already been taken down but originally Neil wrote the letter to his management where he said Spotify was, “spreading fake information about vaccines — potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them”.
“They can have (Joe) Rogan or Young. Not both,”
He then shared the letter on his website but it was quickly taken down.
Young’s letter comes after, Politico reported, Rogan said: “If you’re like 21 years old and you say to me, ‘Should I get vaccinated? I’ll go, no.
“If you’re a healthy person and you’re exercising all the time and you’re young and you’re eating well, I don’t think you need to worry about this.”
This advice, of course, goes against basic public health advice.
Interestingly, Young is not the only person calling for Spotify to take accusations against Rogan’s vaccination views.
An open letter that has been signed by hundreds of doctors is calling for Spotify to implement a misinformation policy because of Joe Rogan’s very popular podcast – only in 2022.
Naturally, Twitter has erupted over Young’s stance.

I’ll just say this: Joe Rogan could never write a Neil Young song, but Neil Young could and should have played the handyman on News Radio.
