Twitter is a whole different world of its own kind. From jokes to controversies, you’ll find all the drama on the platform. Following the trend, recently Jake Shields made a comment about paying a humongous amount to be invited as a guest in the podcast hosted by Joe Rogan.
Recently, Shields responded to a comment on Twitter that took both, the fans and the internet, by storm. Paula Costa, who is known to be a troll, asked on the platform “How much is joe rogan currently charging to go on the podcast?”
I paid $350k but I think I got the friends and family discount

To this Shields replied, “I paid $350k but I think I got the friends and family discount.” It is evident that both these comments were jokes, as Rogan neither charges nor pays anything to his podcast guests, as most of the other podcast hosts.
Jake Shields was a phenomenal UFC fighter, who formerly won the Strikeforce middleweight title, and holds a very impressive record of 33-11. He was best known for his 15-win streak before getting defeated by Georges St-Pierre at UFC 129. Shields is also famous for being a part of The Skrap Pack which also included The Diaz brothers and others.
Joe Rogan is someone who always ends up in controversies for the comments he passes. In a past incident, Joe Rogan was accused of making anti-Semitic comments. At that time, Jake Shields came to his rescue by defending him on social media. Recently, Joe Rogan and his podcast were in the limelight because of AI cloning his voice and making a fake podcast out of it. He also warned his fans against it.
