Comedian Larry the Cable Guy — real name Daniel Lawrence Whitney — blasted what he referred to as weak-minded Americans who are so upset about popular podcaster Joe Rogan's continued presence on Spotify that they are "literally shaking."

What are the details?

In a succinct tweet — which has since gone viral — Whitney wrote, "This country has so many week minded [sic] folks. People in 3rd world countries don't get offended at words and podcasts because they're to [sic] busy trying to find food, avoiding encephalitis, and fleeing from genocidal dictatorships."

"So ponder that next time you're 'literally shaking,'" he added.

At the time of this reporting, the tweet has been liked more than 66,000 times in approximatey 24 hours.

What else is there to know about this?

Rogan has been under fire for weeks as musicians such as Neil Young and Joni Mitchell have yanked their music libraries from Spotify over the podcaster's show, "The Joe Rogan Experience."

Young and Mitchell — as well as others — have accused Rogan of spreading COVID-19 misinformation.

Rogan has been under the microscope over the last week after resurfaced footage emerged featuring him using the N-word on various episodes — incidents for which he later apologized.

In a lengthy video statement, Rogan apologized and insisted that he is not racist.

He captioned the video, "There’s been a lot of s**t from the old episodes of the podcast that I wish I hadn’t said, or had said differently. This is my take on the worst of it."

"I know that to most people, there is no context where a white person is ever allowed to say that word, never mind publicly on a podcast, and I agree with that now,” Rogan said in the video. “Instead of saying the N-word, I would just say the word. I thought as long as it was in context, people would understand what I was doing.”

“I never used it to be racist, because I’m not racist,” Rogan added. “But whenever you’re in a situation where you have to say, ‘I’m not racist,’ you f***ed up. And I clearly have f***ed up."

Spotify has thus far refused to remove Rogan's show from the popular music and audio media streaming platform.
