And upon learning of them, Fox – who transitioned from a male to a female in 2006 – publicly called for Spotify to sever ties with the UFC colour commentator.
The 45-year-old wrote on Facebook: “Joe Rogan is being transphobic yet again.
“He has had more transphobic episodes than you can shake a stick at. Spotify needs to cancel his show already.”
Rogan made the comments during a recent interview with fellow comedian Jim Breuer.
He said: “There are people who really have these thoughts.
“The problem is it becomes a protected subject and then you get praised for transferring your gender—for changing your gender.

“And then it gets exciting for people to talk about, and then you get chastised for even discussing it in any weird way.
“And then people who were marginalised for being—like, generally dumb people, if they transfer over and become another gender, then they get praised.
“There are a lot of people who are idiots, but then they become trans, and now all of a sudden we think they’re amazing.”
Rogan was accused of transphobia in 2013 when discussing Fox facing female MMA fighters after years of the physiological benefits of male hormones.
He said: “She calls herself a woman but… I tend to disagree.

“She used to be a man but now she has had, she’s a transgender which is (the) official term that means you’ve gone through it, right?
“And she wants to be able to fight women in MMA. I say no f***ing way.
“I say if you had a d**k at one point in time, you also have all the bone structure that comes with having a dick.
“You have bigger hands, you have bigger shoulder joints. You’re a f***ing man.
“That’s a man, OK? I don’t care if you don’t have a d**k anymore.”
Rogan has yet to respond to Fox or issue a statement on the latest transphobia accusations that have been levelled his way.
