As fans pick sides in the Joe Budden podcast crew’s blowup, Rory Farrell jumps on social media to thank the fans and promised to address the situation soon.

Rory Farrell and Jamil “Mal” Clay, were noticeably missing from the podcast in March and as the weeks went by there was no mention of it by the founder of the podcast Joe Budden. It appeared everything was fine with the men once again appearing as a trio, but Wednesday (May 12), leaked audio from a recent episode shows Budden ranting about Rory and Mal. The host complained about his friends feeling entitled and not bringing anything to the table.

“Since Rory feels like he has so many options here, somehow he still feels like he’s running the show. He feels like he’s entitled to more,” Budden is heard saying in the clip. “Rory, you are in breach of your contract. And from this point forward, you are fired, and you are not welcome back.” After his name became a trending topic and the world knew that he was axed from JBP, Rory popped up on Twitter to share a statement.

The fans started to pick sides and coming up to their own conclusion on who was right in the situation. Even Rory and Mal’s sworn enemy in DJ Akademiks had his own reaction to the situation putting blame on the co-hosts more than Budden.

A couple of fans compared Joe Budden’s actions to being arrogant and acting in the way of a hip hop heavyweight such as rap billionaire Jay-Z and hip hop mogul Diddy.

“Mannn .. what an era,” tweeted Farrell. “Thank you to everyone that listened, supported, told their friends about us, bought a subscription, ticket, or merch .. any value starts & ends with y’all .. I’ll get to that messy sh*t soon but in the meantime I’m here to celebrate an amazing run!! Love.”

Then he joked, “I just read that back and it sounded like the Bow Wow ‘Thank You’ record smfh [pouring tears crying emoji].” After news circulated, Budden fired off a series of tweets. “Friend or not, I’m NEVER funding someone’s sabotage of me, that will NEVER happen,” said Budden. “I get far away from the threat…. You can think piece until your face turns blue.”
