By Kelsey Vlamis, Business Insider | The comedian Jon Stewart said he thinks it’s a “mistake” for musicians to pull their music from Spotify in protest of Joe Rogan, calling it an “overreaction.”

Neil Young pulled his music from the platform after the streaming platform declined to remove Rogan’s wildly popular podcast, accusing it of spreading misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines.
