Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino
During an episode of his JRE podcast with UFC president Dana White and comedian Tony Hinchcliffe, Rogan incurred the wrath of female star Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino with a crude joke about her gender.
As a comedian best known for ‘roasting’ celebrities, the conversation turned to what Hinchcliffe would do if ‘Cyborg’ was his target.
“That would be amazing, I wouldn’t even know where to begin. Where would I start?” Hinchcliffe said enthusiastically.
“Her dick.” – Rogan replied.
“That she’s the only person who cuts weight by chopping off her dick,” Hinchcliffe quipped.
Naturally ‘Cyborg’ didn’t think that was funny and blasted the trio on Twitter, accusing them of “bullying” and then went into more detail on Facebook about the negative effect their insensitive remarks had.
“When guys as high profile as Joe Rogan make these types of jokes it opens the door for fans and other people in the sport to make similar comments because they see the example and think it’s acceptable. No one deserves to get 1,000 of messages a week attacking their self esteem.”
It’s hard to argue with that and Rogan apologized publicly to ‘Cyborg’ afterwards, accepting full responsibility for the remarks.
“I shouldn’t have said it. I do feel bad about it, because I didn’t want to hurt her feelings.”
