Mark Cuban has criticized Joe Rogan and Elon Musk for their stance on vaccination and their negative portrayal of the medical and pharmaceutical industries.

Cuban, who owns Cost Plus Drugs, responded to Rogan's tweet referring to the medical industry as "heartless monsters" by pointing out the life-saving contributions of the industry.

The disagreement between Cuban and Rogan originated from Rogan's podcast featuring Robert F. Kennedy Jr., known for his anti-vaccination views. This interview prompted vaccine researcher Peter Hotez to denounce it as misinformation.

Rogan then challenged Hotez to a debate on his podcast with no time limit and offered to donate $100,000 to a charity of Hotez's choice. Rogan further criticized the medical industry as profit-driven, disregarding the consequences of their actions.

Cuban also addressed Rogan's relentless attacks on Hotez, highlighting the unfair power dynamics in a podcast setting. He criticized Rogan and Musk for their involvement in the escalating situation, noting that Hotez dedicated his efforts to helping people while they engaged in confrontational behavior.

Cuban further accused Rogan and Musk of contributing to the negative atmosphere of mainstream social media, despite claiming to be different from traditional media outlets.

In conclusion, Cuban argued that Rogan and Musk, as influential figures on social media, exemplified the very problems they often criticized in mainstream media.

He acknowledged their hard work and success but urged them not to deceive themselves or others about their differences, emphasizing their self-interest-driven actions and their alignment with the issues they condemn in the media.
