Followers of podcast hosts Joe Rogan and Ethan Klein have been feuding on social media after the latter called out Rogan for spreading COVID misinformation. This comes after the UFC color commentator claimed he self-medicated with ivermectin once he tested positive. The FDA has firmly stood against using the drug to treat the virus.
H3 Podcast's Ethan Klein also fired at Rogan’s stance on health after the latter claimed to be on a “carnivore diet,” where he eats only animal products. Rogan has also boasted about his workout regime, often including lifting, daily workouts, and Brazilian Jui Jitsu.
Rogan fans are now blasting Klein with fatphobic comments. They criticize Klein’s physique instead of taking part in vaccines.

Since then, the podcast episode has been deleted from YouTube. Malone’s Twitter account has been suspended as well.
