Employees Threaten Strike If Spotify Doesn't Censor Joe Rogan

•, -RW

I hope Joe Rogan got a good chunk of his $100 million deal with Spotify upfront. 

The SJW employees at Spotify are raising hell.

Despite several meetings trying to come to a resolution, some staffers were reportedly dissatisfied with the way senior management responded to Rogan's controversial material,  reports LowKickMMA.

"Spotify employees were demanding direct editorial oversight over the recently-acquired Joe Rogan Experience podcast. That would include the ability to directly edit or remove sections of upcoming interviews, or block the uploading of episodes deemed problematic. The employees also demanded the ability to add trigger warnings, corrections, and references to fact-checked articles on topics discussed by Rogan in the course of his multi-hour discussions," Digital Music News reports.

DMN reports:

Some of the group's demands have already been met by Spotify management, though a refusal to allow further changes is stirring talk of a high-profile walkout or strike.  According to preliminary plans shared with Digital Music News, the strike would principally involve New York-based Spotify employees, and would be accompanied by protests outside Spotify's Manhattan headquarters.  Other aspects would involve media appearances and coordination with other activist organizations.
It never makes sense to give into SJW demands becasue the demands will never stop, you keep them at the starting gate and let them yell and scream from there.
