Joe Rogan Clarifies N Word Use

Following backlash Joe puts his N-word usage in context...

In a video posted on Instagram Joe Rogan explains while the video looks bad, it is taken out of context. Joe claims in the past he felt if he was using the word to explain something it was ok to use. Joe says he no longer feels that way and hasn't said the word in years.
