Comedian, actor, and podcast personality Joe Rogan excoriated celebrities who participated in the recent "I Take Responsibility" video "for turning the racist tide in America," mocking them for "virtue signaling" and telling them to "get your head checked."

In his six-minute segment on his daily eponymous "The Joe Rogan Experience" on Wednesday, Rogan accused the celebrities, which included Sarah Paulson, Aaron Paul, Kesha, Justin Theroux, Debra Messing, and Bryce Dallas Howard, as seeking publicity.

"You f----ing morons . . . You're taking responsibility? No, you're trying to get attention. That's what you're doing," Rogan said. "If they ever feel like doing that again, call me, I'll tell you how it's gonna turn out."

"Some of them are so wrapped up in the liberal, progressive ideology that they literally can't see how dumb this looks to the rest of the world."

The "I Take Responsibility" video is a montage of white celebrities committing to learning more "about issues facing the black community."

It comes amid the protests and riots that occurred following the death of George Floyd, a black man, in police custody. A widely circulated video showed a white police officer restraining Floyd face down with his knee on Floyd's neck.

Critics have claimed the video was evidence of systemic racism in America.

Rogan compared the "I Take Responsibility" video to another video montage led by "Wonderwoman" lead actress Gal Gadot during the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, which had several celebrities singing a version of John Lennon's "Imagine."

"This latest thing where all these actors have this black and white video where they're talking about racism . . . What are you doing?" Rogan said. "You know what that is? These mother-----s haven't gotten any attention for months because they haven't filmed." 

Rogan, who according to Forbes, has his podcast downloaded more than 200 million times a month, last month signed a $100 million contract with Spotify to move his show exclusively to the streaming platform.
