“You know what scares the sh*t out of me? That I have been seeing on Instagram is anorexics. There was some anorexic lady dancing on Instagram,” Rogan expressed his concern.

Rogan revealed that he discussed this matter with his daughter, who happened to know the famous Instagram user he mentioned. The woman in question is Eugenia Cooney, a 29-year-old influencer with over 600,000 followers.
