AUSTIN, TEXAS: Controversial podcaster Joe Rogan admitted to lying about his claims that schools were putting litter boxes for students who identify themselves as "furry". He came clean about the litter box hoax during an episode of his podcast 'The Joe Rogan Experience' with author Michael Shermer on Wednesday, November 2.

In October, Rogan spoke about about schools in the US installing a litter box in the bathroom for students who identify as furry in an episode with Tulsi Gabbard. He claimed that his friend's wife, who is a teacher had, reportedly told him about the story. However, only two weeks later, the American commentator walked back on his claims, saying, "The kitty litter boxes is a weird one. I don’t think they actually did it," per Gizmodo.

According to the outlet, he reportedly clarified his statements in Episode 1888 of his podcast, saying, "I fed into that and I should probably clarify a little bit. I have a friend, and my friend’s wife is a schoolteacher, and she told him that there was discussions in the school that a mother wanted to put a litter box in one of the bathrooms. He told me this and I talked about it on here, and then people were saying, ‘That’s not true, that’s an internet rumor.’ So I contacted him again, and I said, ‘Tell me exactly what she said. Contact her and find out.’ She no longer works for that school, she works for another school. She contacted the other school, she didn’t get a response."

“I think there was discussions about doing it because there was one particularly wacky mother, but there is — it doesn’t seem that there’s any proof that they put a litter box in there," he continued.

However, Rogan's recent statements differ entirely from his previous remarks. On October 11, Rogan stated that the schools had not only discussed about putting a litter box in the girl's bathroom but has already done so. "My friend, his wife is a school teacher. She works at a school that had to install a litter box in the girl’s room because there is a girl who is a furry who identifies as an animal, and her mother badgered the school until they agreed to put a litter box in one of the stalls," Rogan told Gabbard at the 26.40 mark.

The little box conspiracy is a repeated attack on trans and non-conforming youth since early October when along with Rogan, Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert and the Minnesota Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Jensen all swore about hearing stories of schools across the US changing their bathroom facilities for furry students, according to The Guardian. However, the myth got completely debunked after an investigation by NBC News.
