Spotify CEO Daniel Ek sent a letter to company employees Sunday apologizing for the controversy surrounding Joe Rogan but also backing the podcaster, saying he did “not believe that silencing Joe is the answer.”

The company was reported to have taken down about 70 episodes of “The Joe Rogan Experience” over the weekend. On Saturday, Rogan publicly apologized for instances when he used the N-word in past podcasts.

In a letter to Spotify employees, which a company spokesperson sent to NBC News, Ek said the comments Rogan made in past podcasts “do not represent the values of this company.”

Ek wrote that Spotify has been talking to Rogan and his team about “some of the content in his show, including his history of using some racially insensitive language.”
