Jack White, the rock legend and activist, has lashed out at Joe Rogan and other celebrities for having friendly chats with Donald Trump, the former president who has been widely criticized for his role in the January 6 insurrection and his mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an Instagram post on Monday, White accused Rogan, Mark Wahlberg, Guy Fieri and Mel Gibson of being “sellouts” and “traitors” who only care about money, power and fame. He also claimed that they are “the enemy of the people” who are destroying the country and the world.
White urged his fans to boycott their movies, shows and products, and to support artists who stand up for justice and democracy. He wrote: “Don’t let them fool you with their fake smiles and fake patriotism. They are the ones who are destroying this country and the world. We need to fight back and take back our culture from these sellouts and traitors.”
White is known for his outspoken views and activism, having donated to various causes such as Black Lives Matter, Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. He has also been vocal about his disdain for Trump, calling him a “liar” and a “bully” in previous posts.
White’s post sparked mixed reactions from his fans, with some praising him for his bold statement, while some criticizing him for being too harsh or divisive.
