.@JoyVBehar: “It’s not a cancel culture, it’s a consequence culture … don’t buy Spotify.” @sunny: “Don’t you want good corporate citizens? … I’m not saying that Joe Rogan should be removed from Spotify … [but] you have to have some sort of guidelines.”

Neil Young has a long history of activism. He knows that just complaining on Twitter isn't activism. You need concrete action to back it up. He probably knew Spotify would choose Rogan bc of $$. His protest had substance & is making others evaluate their own principles.
