UFC commentator Joe Rogan is calling out a number of Hollywood celebrities over their hypocrisy when it comes to the issue of gun control. In a recent interview with gun rights activist and NRA member Colion Noir, Rogan got into a discussion regarding gun free zones and celebrities who are for gun control.

However, Rogan did not seem to be utterly pleased with how the Hollywood crowd is handling the whole situation. The 50-year-old eviscerated the Hollywood crowd for their hypocrisy, adding how the industry makes enormous amount of money with movies featuring gun violence.

He also commented on the fact that Hollywood celebrities have armed security around them, while at the same time they openly speak about having a no-guns policy in a bid to be politically correct in their views and opinions.

“Anything we hold valuable in this country is protected with guns,” said Noir to Rogan during the interview.

Noir's statement prompted Rogan to intervene, and he said, "No one is more anti-gun than Hollywood. When you hear about any sort of crime or gun violence, the left-wing people in Hollywood are the most vocal, the most virtue-signaling, the quickest to jump on their pedestal. Meanwhile, what percentage of their f***ing movies involve gun violence?"

Rogan continued, "And if you look at the Academy Awards, did you see the security at the Academy Awards? You see all these left-leaning liberal actors being protected by people with flak jackets on. Carrying guns with fingers outside the triggers. I mean, dogs? It’s crazy."

The UFC color commentator has previously spoken about guns and the need for gun control, and he even donated all the proceeds from his show at the Terry Fator Theatre at Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas last year.

This was after the Las Vegas shootings which had taken place last year, where a gunman unleashed a torrent of bullets on unsuspecting concert-goers and killed at least 59 people, with hundreds of others left injured.
