Joe Rogan assured fans on Friday that he tested negative for COVID-19 after previously testing positive.

Podcaster Joe Rogan has tested negative for COVID-19 just two days after admitting that he had contracted the virus.

“The Joe Rogan Experience” host took to Instagram on Friday to reassure his followers that he was doing okay. The 54-year-old shared a photo of his test and wrote, “Tested negative today! Thanks for all the kind wishes!”

On Wednesday, he revealed he got COVID-19 in another post. “I GOT COVID. My apologies, but we have to move the Nashville show to Sunday, October 24. Much love to you all,” he wrote in the caption accompanying a clip of himself explaining his condition.

In his video, Rogan claimed he felt “very weary,” adding, “I had a headache, and I just felt just run down.”

Following his diagnosis, he opted to quarantine himself from his family and took medication. The medicine the announcer said he took was “monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-Pak, prednisone, everything. I also got an NAD drip and a vitamin drip and I did that three days in a row. Here we are on Wednesday, and I feel great.”

Rogan has made many controversial remarks about the pandemic and vaccinations. In his August 20 podcast, Rogan became infuriated about New York City’s new mandate telling people to show proof of vaccinations at indoor venues. He added that he won’t “force” his fans to get vaccinated to see his upcoming show at Madison Square Garden.

The announcer has spewed many controversial remarks about COVID-19.

“I have a problem because I have a show there in Madison Square Garden in October, and I’ve already sold 13,000 tickets,” Rogan said. “And now they say that everybody has to be vaccinated and I want everybody to know that you can get your money back.”

He continued, “If someone has an ideological or physiological reason for not getting vaccinated, I don’t want to force them to get vaccinated to see a f–king stupid comedy show.”

In an April episode of his show, he told “healthy” 21-year-olds not to take the vaccine. “If you’re like 21 years old, and you say to me, ‘Should I get vaccinated?’ I’ll go, ‘No.’ Are you healthy? Are you a healthy person? Like, look, don’t do anything stupid, but you should take care of yourself,” he said at the time. “You should — if you’re a healthy person, and you’re exercising all the time, and you’re young, and you’re eating well, like, I don’t think you need to worry about this.”

BTS has some “Dynamite” news!

But before members of the K-Pop band’s avid fandom take to the streets, no, their tour is not starting up again.

Instead, the group is being inducted into the Guinness World Records 2022 Hall of Fame with an impressive 23 records thanks to their hits for a multitude of tracks, from “Butter” to “Mic Drop.”

“BTS have collected a jaw-dropping 23 Guinness World Records titles across music and social media – an amazing result achieved also thanks to the enthusiasm of their fans, the ARMY,” Guinness World Records said in a statement on Thursday. “As for their ability to have fun, amaze and communicate through music and dance moves, as well as their dedication for breaking records … that is certainly what marks BTS as the perfect fit for our Hall of Fame 2022!”

The boy band set 11 of those 23 world records in the past year alone, according to Guinness. In May 2021, their chart-smashing hit “Butter” single-handedly raked in five records, including most streamed track on Spotify in the first 24 hours (11 million), most viewers for the premiere of a music video on YouTube (3.9 million), most viewed music video in 24 hours (108 million) and more.

In addition to those impressive musical accolades, BTS is also the most streamed group on Spotify (beating British band Coldplay) and the most followed music group on Instagram, according to Guinness World Records.

But the announcement also made sure to mention the boy band’s impact on international society and culture.

“Despite their young age, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook have left a mark in the present cultural landscape, breaking free from the limitations of their home market and of a language, South Korean, that remains widely unknown to the international public,” Guinness World Records said.

Sharing South Korean culture with the rest of the world is a goal BTS members RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook had from the beginning.

In an interview with Billboard in September 2020, BTS member RM said, “I think in the perspective of culture, I think it’s really important to be familiar. So first, we think … that for many Americans (they were) not familiar with (us) — we look different, we (sing) different, we got some different choreography, music videos, like everything, even lifestyle. But I think as time goes by, we’re doing these shows and songs and concerts and awards, I think quite a lot of people in the American music market is getting, like, kind of close (to us). I think it’s very good and that’s what we wanted actually.”

In addition to their 23 records and induction into the Hall of Fame, BTS will also receive a two-page spread in the upcoming printed Guinness World Records 2022 book.

It is safe to say that BTS is “smooth like butter” and will “pull you in like no other”!

Elaine Hendrix and Lisa Ann Walter played Meredith Blake and Chessy, respectively.

Meredith Blake is back in town to stir up some trouble.

Elaine Hendrix — who played the devious character in 1998’s “The Parent Trap” — reunited with her friend and co-star Lisa Ann Walter to re-create a scene from the movie on TikTok.

The Disney flick starred Lindsay Lohan as a pair of twins separated at birth who find each other 11 years later at summer camp. Hendrix, 50, portrayed the 26-year-old fiancée of their father, Nick (played by Dennis Quaid), while Walter, 58, played their housekeeper, Chessy.

In the hilarious scene that Hendrix and Walter reenacted, Meredith snootily rings a bell for Chessy to come wait on her hand and foot.

“Chessy?” Hendrix said while in character as she rang a silver bell. “It’s such a big house and all. Chessy!” Walter, as Chessy, then comes on camera and sighs, “You rang?”

The two actresses then cracked smiles after breaking character in the video, which has since garnered over 5.5 million views and over 1.1 million likes.

Ahead of the movie’s 23rd anniversary, Hendrix spoke to Insider in July about her “tremendous chemistry” with Quaid, 67.

Quaid was 44 years old when he shot the film and Hendrix was actually 26. She elaborated on the age differences their characters had to face.

“The Parent Trap” was released by Disney in 1998.

“He’s just such a guy,” she said. “One of the generalized differences between men and women is that boys mature later and girls mature earlier. So I think I was sort of an older 26 … I think it worked well.”

“Clearly, Meredith Blake is not an average 26-year-old,” she continued. “All of that I couldn’t relate to. But how together she was and how ambitious she was — that I could definitely relate to.”

Hendrix added, “The character had to be close enough to the twins’ age but not so close that it was like, ‘Oh, this is really creepy.’” Lohan, 35, was a preteen during the time of filming.

“The Parent Trap” was a remake of the 1961 film of the same name that starred Hayley Mills. The comedy flick was directed by Nancy Meyers and also starred the late Natasha Richardson, Simon Kunz and Maggie Wheeler. Richardson portrayed twins Annie and Hallie’s mother and wedding dress designer Elizabeth James.

This week’s death of Daffney Unger (second from right) marked the latest tragedy to hit the wrestling world, which itself has been plagued by suicides for years.

The world’s most scripted sport is made up of outrageous plot lines, larger-than-life heroes, cartoon villains — and a real-life dark side.

Former professional wrestler Daffney Unger went on Instagram Live this week and appeared to click a pistol while crying. Following a subsequent frantic search to locate her, the 46-year-old was found dead on Thursday.

“Do you guys not understand that I am all alone? Do you not understand that?” she wept in the video.

Unger, born Shannon Spruill, is the latest wrestling star to die a sudden and tragic death — and give horrified followers a peek into the dark world that now seems to be synonymous with the sport.

Georgia’s Gwinnett County Medical Examiner’s office told The Post Unger’s cause of death has yet to be released since it’s a pending case. But her unsettling Wednesday night video led grieving friends and fans online to share the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number and encourage those battling mental health issues to reach out for help.

Daffney Unger was born Shannon Spruill.

“I’m so very sorry to learn of Daffney’s passing,” wrestling legend Mick Foley — whose representative didn’t return The Post’s message seeking comment — tweeted on Thursday. “A terrible loss for her family, friends and wrestling. She was far ahead [of] her time in our business. #RIPDaffney”

He continued, “If you’re hurting and thinking of doing harm to yourself, please know that help is available,” before sharing the suicide prevention hotline number.

Foley also had expressed concern for Unger after the disturbing video went viral and attempted to help. “If anyone has a way of reaching Daffney Unger, or knows her address, please help out,” he tweeted. “She’s in a bad personal place and is threatening to harm herself. My phone call went straight to voicemail.”

“Remember, my brain goes to Boston,” Unger said in her final video.

In a clip of Unger’s Wednesday video, she mentions CTE — or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a progressive brain condition that stems from repeated injuries to the brain, such as concussions — which can only be diagnosed after death.

“So I don’t want to do anything to hurt my brain,” she said. “I want it to be studied. I want the future generations to know: Don’t do stupid s–t like me.”

“Remember, my brain goes to Boston,” she added.

In 2019, Daffney captioned this photo using the hashtags "#MentalHealthAwareness," "#YouAreNotAlone" and "#EndTheStigma."
Her passing rocked the world of wrestling.

Symptoms of CTE, according to the Boston University CTE Center, include impulse control problems, impaired judgment, depression, aggression, suicidality, memory loss and eventual dementia.

The disease has long affected boxers, but recent years have revealed stories about hockey and football players who suffered from it — one of whom was Aaron Hernandez, the late New England Patriots tight end convicted in 2015 for the 2013 murder of his friend Odin Lloyd, and who hanged himself in his prison cell in 2017 at age 27. Wrestler Chyna, the “Ninth Wonder of the World” who died in 2016, also donated her brain for CTE research.

It appears that Unger lived in a world of hurt — and sadly, she wasn’t the only wrestler to inhabit it.

Chris Benoit

French-Canadian professional wrestler Chris Benoit, otherwise known as the Canadian Crippler, shocked the wrestling world in June 2007 by killing his wife and son before taking his own life. At the time, observers noted a presence of steroids in the family’s Georgia home — and speculated a “roid rage” made him snap.

In reality, the 40-year-old Benoit was one of the first pro wrestlers to be diagnosed with CTE after death.

Benoit murdered his second wife, 43-year-old Nancy — who had previously filed for divorce and had applied for a restraining order against him in 2003 after he threatened her and broke furniture in their home — by strangling. Investigators found her in an upstairs room with hands and feet bound, and blood under her head.

The wrestler also smothered his 7-year-old son Daniel by asphyxia; investigators found the child dead in his bed. The two were reportedly killed hours apart. After, Benoit took his own life by using a cable from a weight machine in his gym to hang himself. There was no note, but bibles had been laid next to each body.

Christopher Nowinski — a former professional wrestler, friend of Benoit and author of a book about CTE published in 2006 — told the New York Times in 2007 that he believed repeated and untreated concussions from wrestling were to blame.

In the end, Benoit’s brain resembled that of an 85-year-old man with Alzheimer’s.

The murder-suicide changed the state of professional wrestling, according to Vice, which added that — though the WWE was in the process of making its appearance cleaner — direct blows to the head stopped happening after news of his autopsy.

“He was one of the only guys who would take a chair shot to the back of the head,” Nowinski told the Times, “which is stupid.”

Ashley Massaro

Former WWE star Ashley Massaro, who reportedly died by suicide in 2019 at age 39 after a yearslong battle with depression, also sought to have her brain donated for CTE research, her lawyer announced at the time.

Massaro, a Long Island native whose three-year stint in the WWE began in 2005, took quite a beating during her years.

Ashley Massaro, a Long Island native, began her three-year stint in the WWE in 2005.

“She had swollen knuckles from being broken. Sometimes I would ask her questions, and she would use wrestling terms and say, ‘Girl, I’ve taken too many bumps. I can’t even remember what I had for breakfast,’ ” Massaro’s friend and fellow former wrestler Rochelle Loewen told The Post in 2019. “She was suffering from short-term memory loss from concussions.”

Massaro, also a one-time contestant on “Survivor,” had been public about her mental health struggles, and previously blamed wrestling-incurred injuries for them.

In 2016, Massaro — who also spent 42 days in rehab in 2010 for addiction — joined a class-action lawsuit of 60 wrestlers that alleged the WWE failed to protect its wrestlers from concussions and head trauma. In 2017, Massaro claimed in an affidavit that she suffered multiple concussions during her time wrestling and she never received warnings about the associated risks.

“Aside from my ongoing physical injuries that were sustained in the ring, and my former battle with addiction, to this day I suffer from depression, for which I take medication; migraine headaches; and severe short-term memory loss,” she charged.

The suit was dismissed in 2018 claiming an expiration of many statutes of limitation; an appeal was pending at the time of Massaro’s death. Also after her death, WWE issued a statement saying Massaro had apologized to the organization in 2018 for taking part in the suit — and in an email shared with The Post in 2019, Massaro claimed the lawyer repping the plaintiffs “poached” her and the battle “got out of control fast.”

In an eerie twist, Massaro starred in a music video about suicide prevention just months before she took her own life.

Chris Kanyon

Pro wrestler Chris Kanyon, who died by suicide in 2010 in his Queens apartment at age 40, had previously attempted to take his own life in 2003 by taking a full bottle of sleeping pills when he learned he had bipolar disorder.

Despite the challenges with his mental illness, Kanyon — born Christopher Klucsarits — also lived at odds with being a professional wrestler and a gay man.

He wasn’t ashamed of his sexual orientation but still went out of his way to stay in the closet to keep his career safe, according to Bleacher Report. And due to it, he lived in emotional hell.

Still, in 2001, Kanyon decided to come out within wrestling, but not publicly — and even pitched himself to be a non-stereotypically gay character, which according to the posthumously published “Wrestling Reality: The Life and Mind of Chris Kanyon, Wrestling’s Gay Superstar,” didn’t receive support from WWE creative.

Instead, in 2003 — as part of a feud between the Undertaker and the Big Show — Kanyon would emerge from a box, dressed as Boy George, sing “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?” and get beaten up by Undertaker. Undertaker, according to the account, gave Kanyon a serious blow to the head with a chair.

Online rumors after this appearance circulated, speculating he was gay, which left Kanyon no option but to come out and make his identity his full-time wrestling shtick, which again was turned down. Losing grip of his wrestling career, and appearing in non-prime shows, he made a suicide attempt that year.

Kanyon never came out publicly during his career, which lasted until the mid-2000s — but did shortly after.
