‘ImPaulsive’ host Logan Paul and comedian Tim Dillon recognized how social ‘pressure’ typically builds towards Joe Rogan for his massively popular podcast The Joe Rogan Experience

The social ‘pressure’ that builds before, or shortly after, a Joe Rogan Experience episode isn’t lost on ‘ImPaulsive’ host Logan Paul and comedian Tim Dillon. The two were impressed with how JR faces that on a daily basis.

Joe Rogan tends to be a talking point that incites strong opinions, Dillon said. “I’m gonna drop dead on his advice, I love him to death, but –”

Paul didn’t quite want to agree, instead giving Rogan props for holding things that he really stands for and seeing them through to the end, right or wrong. “There’s something about conviction, even if you know that someone is so wrong where you can respect their belief in what they’re saying.”

As light-hearted banter goes, the two roasted the popular show host for some of the more questionable things he’s been heard saying or for lending his large platform to divisive people at times.

Still, Rogan’s drive to open discussions to every form of thought, expression, or otherwise is something that the two admired. And millions of views pour in per episode, especially when cropped segments start to trend like wildfire.

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast has built one of the largest following across its 1,775 episodes of its multiple series, including “the regular JRE podcasts, JRE MMA Shows, Fight Companions, Fight Recaps/Breakdowns, Podcasts on a Plane/In a Car/In Paradise/In a Hotel Room, Joe Rogan Questions Everything, etc.,” per the JRE Library’s count.

“I don’t know how he does it, and for so long,” Paul said.

Dillon quickly added, “It’s tough. He listens. He really listens, and he’s interested. He cares about stuff, he’s curious.”

Spotify paid upwards of a million plus for the Joe Rogan Experience podcast and debuted exclusively on the platform starting September 2020.


Why is #FreeTommy trending? Tommyinnit responds after shock TikTok ban

Popular Minecraft YouTuber Tommyinnit has become a major trend across social media again as the internet celebrity had his TikTok account banned out of nowhere.

Tommyinnit has been one of the fastest-growing stars on the internet of late. From remarkable Twitch viewership to staggering income, his growth across a number of social platforms has been something to behold. Though there was one major setback in his way for a short period.

The popular personality was suddenly removed from TikTok on February 24. Seemingly without reason, the platform banned Tommyinnit’s account which had just climbed to over four million followers.

“TikTok just banned me,” he revealed on Twitter.

“Crushed. I am absolutely crushed. Please TikTok,” he added with a hashtag that went on to trend in a matter of minutes. “#FreeTommy.”

Having trended on Twitter just days prior, this latest viral moment comes as a result of the bad news. Thousands of loyal fans immediately jumped on the trend, spamming #FreeTommy across social media to get it trending.

There’s no denying the enormous community support had an impact as Tommy’s account was restored in under an hour.

Hundreds of tweets and thousands of impressions later, his TikTok account was back to normal. All of his videos were brought back to the platform and the creator was free to engage with fans once again.

There’s currently no telling why the sudden ban came through in the first place, however. The 16-year-old has just 18 videos on TikTok at the time of writing, most of which are simple close-ups on his face.

#FreeTommy shot to the number one trend worldwide in a matter of minutes.

While the controversy was short-lived, it goes to show that even the biggest social media stars can have their profiles erased in the blink of an eye. 

TikTok is yet to explain the reason behind this shock ban, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated if any further information comes to light.
