Social media users have expressed their shock and disgust at Mr. Rogan’s warmongering, with some branding him a terrorist for his remarks and “inciting of violence.”
Based on your twisted logic, you could encourage countries affected by the aggression of the USA, blow up the infrastructure of America. But this is called terrorism. You call for terror. You're sick.— СтройАльянс СПб (@sa78ru) May 18, 2018
you are a terrorist. The Ukrainian radicals blew up the Electrical supports to leave people, hospitals without electricity. You are like them.. pic.twitter.com/16S2N3CrtH— Савушка (@fly8081) May 18, 2018
You are a terrorist, Mister.— Irina Kenig (@susanna32) May 18, 2018
Awful tweet Rogan. Just awful. Inciting acts of violence is just not in a liberal mind. There's no room! LOL!!!— Frederick Kloster (@FrederickKlost1) May 17, 2018
Ukraine should blow up Putin's Crimea bridge https://t.co/JfFIfKDPcN— Philipp Wyss (@wyssph) May 18, 2018
The example just proves this: Americans seek for war.

It’s always important to remember that uninformed ‘geopolitical experts’ like @TomRtweets, who encourages terrorism in Europe, are not representing the views of most Americans.— Thomas (@reiabsamoht) May 18, 2018
What a despicable article:https://t.co/UCqVhfvCTy
Сan you imagine the uproar and hysteria if in the Russian newspaper someone would proposed to destroy the American bridge, plant or infrastructure? Outright terrorism and provocation are not freedom of speech. Disgusting. https://t.co/cIPUntOdYA— Дepлorabлe Russian🔹 (@TeamTrumpRussia) May 17, 2018
Prior to the construction of the bridge, there wasn’t a land connection between Crimea and the mainland, with vehicles having to board a ferry to cross the Kerch Strait.
In addition to launching a case against the journalist, Russia’s Investigative Committee later opened a criminal case against the editor of Rogan’s op-ed, Hugo Gordon.
