Daily Wire podcast host Matt Walsh sent a message on Friday to those on the Left “celebrating” his “demise” and said he can’t be canceled after his show became the most popular news podcast on Spotify.
“The Matt Walsh Show” host had nothing but praise for his followers when he tweeted a screenshot of this week’s top U.S. news podcasts, showing The Daily Wire host sitting at the top of the list.
“Last week I was demonetized by YouTube, then hacked, and the Left was celebrating my demise,” Walsh tweeted to his 1.7 million followers.
“This week I have the number one podcast in the category on Spotify,” he added. “Thanks for all of your support. You’re the reason they can’t cancel me.”

Walsh’s show was in the number one spot, followed by The New York Times’ “The Daily” podcast and Sirius XM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast in the second and third spots, respectively.
During his show on Monday, Walsh shared that in response to YouTube trying to stop him and the hacking of his phone, he would make his daily podcast available on Twitter.
YouTube has threatened to ban us if we don’t affirm gender ideology. They want me to either surrender my principles or become irrelevant.
So starting today, every episode of this show will be posted on @Twitter, which is now the most powerful free speech platform in the world. pic.twitter.com/hCiqdgxm3s

During the same episode, Walsh also sent a message to those sending him “death threats,” “hacking my accounts, and trying to blackmail me” that he will never stop speaking the truth.
“There is a wide consensus on the Left that I deserve to be killed,” the podcast host said. “They have made that point abundantly clear. But the good news is we’re not taking any of this lying down … and if the people who did this aren’t nervous right now, they should be.”
“I still will not back down by an inch or compromise at all,” he added. “I’ve told you many times that I would rather be dead than surrender to these people and I meant it.”
“So to all the people who are sending me death threats and posting my home address, and hacking my accounts, and trying to blackmail me, and threaten me,” he added. “Giving away my personal information, mass reporting me to get me de-platformed, and all the rest of it, I want you to know that nothing you have done, or will do, or could do will ever make me shut up.”
