The UFC commentator and host of The Joe Rogan Experience warned streaming giant Spotify that he would "walk away" from his $200 million deal if he's made the "walk on eggshells."

"I will quit," Rogan told MMA fighter Josh Barnett.

"If it gets to a point that I can't do it anymore, where I have to do it in some sort of weird way where I walk on eggshells and mind my P’s and Q’s, f*** that!"

54-year-old Rogan noted that the podcast industry is cutthroat, referencing his recent controversies surrounding remarks about COVID-19 and use of racial slurs in the past.

Rogan said there is a risk of being canceled for "every little thing."

"There's more people poring over it, but it’s the same thing," he said.

"I do it the same way," according to Rogan.

"If I become something different because it grew bigger, I will quit," Rogan said.

The podcast host signed with Spotify in 2020 and has roughly one year left on his contract.

Rogan has been hit with multiple content advisory warnings while at least 113 episodes have been removed from the streaming platform

Rogan said his job "requires sincerity."

"Without it, this show doesn’t have any success."

Last month, Rogan turned down the massive $100 million deal to take his hugely popular podcast to Rumble, saying that "Spotify has hung in with me, inexplicably."

As Neon Nettle reported:

Rogan said that he would not be accepting the $100M offer from video-streaming service Rumble.

"During a question and answer portion with fans after the show, Rogan was asked if he would accept the $100 million offer from Rumble to move his show from Spotify to the right-wing platform,” The Hollywood Reporter noted.

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek released a statement in February, announcing that the streaming service would stand by the podcast host.

"While I strongly condemn what Joe has said and I agree with his decision to remove past episodes from our platform, I realize some will want more."

"And I want to make one point very clear – I do not believe that silencing Joe is the answer,” Ek said.
