Joe Rogan mocked for sharing fake news report about Steven Seagal joining Russian special forces

Embattled podcaster Joe Rogan is being mocked mercilessly online after posting a spoof CNN report that claimed Steven Seagal was assisting the Russians in their ongoing invasion of Ukraine. The post surfaced amid high-stakes talks between the nations, in which Ukraine demanded that the invading nation withdraw troops from their country.

The screenshot, which the host of “The Joe Rogan Experience” shared to Facebook and Instagram on Monday, depicted the 69-year-old action movie star toting a machine gun while rocking sunglasses and combat fatigues.

The description read, “Intelligence agencies around the world have spotted American actor Steven Seagal among Russian special forces positioned around the outskirts of Gostomel airfield near Kyiv captured by Russian airborne troops.”

Rogan, 54, captioned the faux report, “If I had to guess the plot of this f–ked up movie we’re living through I would say we are about 14 hours from the arrival of the aliens.”

Social media commenters were quick to rip into the post, which some pointed out was actually from Seagal’s 2016 thriller “Sniper.”
