Unvaccinated Joe Rogan cancels the Vancouver show due to BC vaccine mandates

Joe Rogan has canceled his upcoming Vancouver show due to COVID-19 vaccine mandates in the province.

The UFC commentator said he canceled his 4/20 show during a Christmas Eve episode of his podcast, Joe Rogan Experience.

“I should probably say this, because I do not have it yet. Mine 4/20 show sold out in Vancouver – I do not think it happens, “said Rogan.” I do not even think I can enter the country. I am not vaccinated. I do not want to be vaccinated. I have antibodies, it gives no opinion.”
