Critics Disappointed, Wished Rogan Would Die, But Joe Rogan Has Tested Negative For COVID-19 Days After Testing Positive

Podcast host and UFC veteran color commentator Joe Rogan gave an update about his health after earlier announcing that he contracted Covid-19.

Rogan said on Friday that he has  tested negative for the coronavirus, only two days after he was infected with Covid-19 as he posted an image showing his negative test for the virus.

“Tested negative today! Thanks for all the kind wishes!” Rogan wrote in a gleeful post on his Instagram.

Despite the good news, his critics were disappointed with the positive development in Rogan’s health — after earlier wishing him to die from coronavirus. 

“The Joe Rogan Experience” host earlier received backlash for reportedly taking the controversial drug ivermectin which is an anti-parasitic drug for humans and animals after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) already earlier recommended that humans don’t take ivermectin to treat Covid-19.

Last Wednesday, the 54-year-old comedian said he was infected with the coronavirus.

“Hello friends, so I got back from the road Saturday night, feeling very weary, I had a headache and I just felt run down. And just to be cautious, I separated from my family, slept in a different part of the house, and throughout the night I got fevers and sweats, and I knew what was going on,” he said in a video.

“So I got up in the morning, got tested, and it turns out I got COVID.”

“We immediately threw the kitchen sink at it. All kinds of meds,” the UFC commentator added, noting that “Monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-pak, prednisone, everything. And I also got an anti-D drip and a vitamin drip.”

When he first announced that he was infected with Covid-19, his critics flocked to social media to wish him ill — and even death from the virus. 

I’ll say it. I hope it kills him,” one Twitter post wrote.

“If joe rogan dies 2021 will end up being a good year,” another one commented.

“Guys GUYS do you understand how funny it will be … if joe rogan dies from covid,” another Twitter post read.

“I hope joe rogan dies,” commented another.

Please if joe rogan dies of covid it would be so funny,” another said.

If Joe Rogan dies from horse dewormer that would be the funniest thing ever.”

“I don’t want anyone to go out of their way to kill joe rogan, i just hope the horse paste liquifies his insides and he dies in embarrassing agony,” another comment said.

Joe Rogan has Covid and I genuinely don’t hope he recovers,” another critic wrote on Twitter.

Honestly I hope Joe Rogan dies like enough is enough,” another comment said.

I hope Joe Rogan dies next. C u in hell B*tch,” said another post.

While Rogan has not revealed his coronavirus vaccination status, he has urged those who are at ‘high risk,’ such as his parents, to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine.

Earlier, the famous podcast presenter was also slammed for saying that healthy, young people don’t need the COVID-19 vaccination. Although later on, he clarified that he isn’t a doctor or a “respected source of information,” but rather a “cage-fighting commentator and a nasty stand-up comic.

Meanwhile, other personalities blasted those wishing Rogan death.

“They wanted Joe Rogan to die of covid to ‘prove a point.’ These aren’t good people,” one Twitter user said.

“Joe Rogan destroyed COVID-19,” wrote Aaron Carpenter, a city Councilman in Ohio. “He’s unvaccinated and in great health.”

Carpenter added: “This is a massive narrative killer for the Left. Stay healthy, folks!”
