Soon, it circulated on the internet, including various platforms like Reddit and Twitter. Even Rebecca Keegan, editor of "The Hollywood Reporter," shared the message, adding that it was written over WeHo.

Keegan's tweet was retweeted by many; some fans found it confusing, while others made a joke about it, emphasizing that Rogan was not being honest about his height. One Twitter user quipped:

Soon, people with first-hand information wrote about the genesis of the message. Reportedly, the bit about Rogan's height was the backend of a proposal to a woman named Mollie Pratt. 

Pratt's partner asked  the traditional question, "Will you marry me?" And she excitedly answered, "I love you more than anything, excited to spend my life with you until death does us part." But the message had an unexpected ending—Rogan's height.
