Joe Rogan Has COVID, Taking Ivermectin, Looks Like Sh!t
We take no pleasure in seeing someone get sick from COVID-19, as we’ve had contributors to this site contract the virus, and it is no picnic. But we do take pleasure in the notion that when some of the biggest COVID denialists catch COVID-19, that maybe they will change their tune, maybe they will encourage people to get vaccinated, and maybe they will use their platforms to encourage large swaths of their anti-vaxx audiences to better heed consensus medical advice.

That is not the case with anti-vaccine podcast kingpin Joe Rogan, who announced he has COVID just after 2 p.m. PT today, and rattled off a list of bizarre, mostly unapproved drugs that he is treating himself with.
Joe Rogan: I'm not putting that COVID vaccine in my body! Who knows what it could do?
Also Joe Rogan: I got COVID so I took monoclonal antibodies, Ivermectin, Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies, Z-Pak, some pills I found stuck in the cabinet, steroids, and long expired Crystal Pepsi.

Rogan, who had just returned from (guess where!) Florida, said in an Instagram video that “It turns out I got COVID. So we immediately threw the kitchen sink at it, all kinds of meds. Monoclonal antibodies, Ivermectin, Z-Pak, prednisone, everything. And I also got an NAD drip and a vitamin drip.”
You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y'all. Stop it. https://t.co/TWb75xYEY4

Whoa, Nellie…. Ivermectin? That is the horse and livestock de-worming drug that’s suddenly popular among people who refer to the vaccinated as “sheep.”
Joe Rogan took a bunch of nonsense medicine alongside a bunch of real medicine for COVID and will be fine because he has infinite money
But his example will convince more dumb people to just take horse paste https://t.co/ZI34pVU6XO

“Taking large doses of this drug is dangerous and can cause serious harm,” the FDA says of Ivermectin. “Never use medications intended for animals on yourself. Ivermectin preparations for animals are very different from those approved for humans.”
dying of horse dewormer is probably the most joe rogan way for him to go out

We wish Joe Rogan a speedy recovery. We also wish he would stop telling people to not get vaccinated, stop ranting against vaccine requirements, and realize, considering he’s had to cancel shows, that COVID-19 is silencing him more than “woke culture” ever did.
