As part of an unhinged rant on Twitter, failed actress Alyssa Milano claimed she had one third of the listeners as Joe Rogan, despite having no evidence.
Milano, who spends most of her time attacking President Trump for being racist, started a long Twitter thread on Wednesday evening, where she ranted about anything and everything that annoyed her. This included professing her bewilderment that Joe Rogan had supposedly 3 times the podcast listeners as her.
“We live in a world WHERE JOE ROGAN’S PODCAST HAS TRIPLE THE LISTENERS AS MINE!!” Milano tweeted. “Dear god.”

However, there is no evidence that suggests that Milano’s podcast, “Sorry Not Sorry,” which “tackles social, political and cultural issues from the perspective of unapologetic guests while highlighting activists doing amazing things throughout the country,” has anywhere near the audience of Rogan’s.
In fact, Milano’s audience is likely to be magnitudes smaller. Milano has produced 74 episodes of her podcast since starting it in April of last year. By contrast, “The Joe Rogan Experience” has 1517 episodes produced, 20.5 times the amount of “Sorry Not Sorry.”
In terms of podcast rankings, Milano also falls completely short. On both “The Stitcher List,” a weekly ranking of the most popular 100 shows on their site, and Podcast Insights, which ranks show listeners on Apple Podcasts, “The Joe Rogan Experience” is number 1, while “Sorry Not Sorry” fails to chart at all.
As of the time of writing, Alyssa Milano’s YouTube channel, which posts teaser clips of her full podcasts, has a mere 217 subscribers, with one video receiving only 17 views – Joe Rogan’s channel has 9.13 million subscribers, and posts the full podcasts, which receive multi-millions of views in total.
Many Twitter users saw through this facade, and proceeded to roast her in the quotes and replies of her tweet:
Never forget that most celebrity “activism” is just a bid to be more relevant. It’s rooted in nothing. Also it’s a lot more than 3X. https://t.co/NrYDQJXlqQ

Does she think Rogan has 45 listeners? https://t.co/N8XN95ItrS

There is ZERO chance Milano has anywhere near a third of Rogan's audience size. https://t.co/U0gNHSthRi
