Podcast superstar Joe Rogan called out Hollywood hypocrisy last week for pushing anti-gun messaging while glorifying gun violence in movies and television.
Speaking with comedian Tim Dillon on The Joe Rogan Experience, the podcaster said that Hollywood promotes “guns more than any other media on the planet.”

“Isn’t it fucking wild that Hollywood, in general, is very anti-gun, but they promote guns more than any other media on the planet?” Joe Rogan asked.

“All their best movies, whether it’s The Gray Man, or whether you’re watching The Terminal List or Mission Impossible. It’s all — ‘guns save the day.’ Guns kill aliens, guns kill werewolves, guns kill everyone. Everyone bad gets killed by guns,” he added.

Rogan said that Hollywood essentially pushes guns at every opportunity while simultaneously saying, “guns are bad and you shouldn’t have guns.”

The conversation then segued into Hollywood’s hypocrisy on climate change messaging, with Dillon noting how industry elites have gargantuan homes while flying private jets everywhere they go.

“Well, these are also the same people that live in these 20,000 square-foot homes and fly private jets, but talk endlessly about climate change. The same people,” he said.

Dillon theorized that the intense cognitive dissonance in Hollywood perhaps stems from the fact that they get paid so much money to essentially “play pretend,” which leads celebrities to see themselves “as something completely different than what other people see and your behavior as something that’s completely different.”
