Joe Rogan recently offered his take on the growing trend of cancel culture in society. He argued that the culture was at its peak with massive real-world implications, often costing people their livelihoods.

While in conversation with Mike Tyson on the latest edition of Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson, the UFC color commentator opened up about how freedom of speech affected people all over the world:

"Well, what it is, is a culture of people being able to express themselves and when people can express themselves, they can change the way other people feel about things. They can get people upset at things. You could say things that you've never been able to say before. You have, like, so many people have the ability to express themselves now, so it's like you can get someone fired. Like if you decide that you're gonna pile onto someone because you don't like what they said or what they did, you can get them fired. That's a new thing in history."

Rogan further offered some insight into how this culture of expressing a negative opinion about someone has changed over the years. He admitted that the evolution of social media had made discussing such matters on a global scale much easier.
