Trisha Paytas clapped back at Joe Rogan after he commented on a bikini picture of them on his podcast
- Trisha Paytas hit out at Joe Rogan after he insulted them on his podcast.
- A guest told Rogan she subscribed to Paytas' OnlyFans, to which Rogan said: "You can keep that."
Trisha Paytas has found their next internet feud in podcaster star Joe Rogan.
Paytas, an enormously popular yet polarizing YouTube personality and OnlyFans creator, was recently a topic of conversation on "The Joe Rogan Experience" podcast, which has sparked controversy with episodes such as those that included interviews with far-right figures Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Gavin Mcinnes. Comedian Ali Macofsky appeared on the show on April 13, where she said she was a subscriber of Paytas' OnlyFans. She said Paytas was a "savage," and discussed their content, citing a naked house tour around their new mansion.
On the latest episode, Rogan asked a member of the team to pull up a picture of Paytas. When looking at a photo of them in a bikini to "see how [Paytas] would look naked," he said: "Yeah, you can keep that."

In comments below the clip, shared by internet news reporter Def Noodles, people accused Rogan of body shaming Paytas and using the wrong pronouns (Paytas announced they identify as non-binary and use they/ them pronouns this week).
Paytas also picked up on the video themselves, and posted a swift eight-minute response to their YouTube channel titled "dear Joe Rogan..."
"Dear Joe Rogan podcast," they said. "Thank you for providing me with some video content today."
Paytas said they had woken up to tweets and social media mentions alerting them Rogan had spoken about them. They said they didn't know much about Rogan except that he was "really popping on 'Fear Factor' when I was a kid."
Paytas said Rogan fits into a pattern of men going after people who present as women
Paytas said that men going after the appearances of people who present as women has been "a pattern."
Rogan didn't have to say anything if he didn't find them attractive, Paytas said.
"Not every woman is here to be pleasure for your eyeballs," they said. "Just for future reference, for people - attention trolls like myself that aren't me - you don't have to 'urgh' at somebody. Because chances are, even if they are the most beautiful person, maybe they already 'urgh' at themselves."
Rogan has not responded to Paytas' video. Insider has reached out to his reps for comment.
