Barstool Sports Employees Organize To Smooch Their Boss's Ass

Barstool Sports Employees Organize To Smooch Their Boss's Ass

Prompted by The Ringer’s unionization, Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy, whose site uses the tagline “By the common man, for the common man,” has spent a lot of his time yesterday and today coming out as a big anti-union guy. This was a predictable shtick from the guy who sold MAGA hats and yuks it up with Tucker Carlson, but what was actually disheartening was the sight of his employees...

The Bruins Don't Want To Talk About Getting Into Bed With Barstool Sports

The Bruins Don't Want To Talk About Getting Into Bed With Barstool Sports

The Boston Bruins were happy to plug their Barstool Sports towels this morning ahead of tonight’s Game 2, but for some reason they now don’t want to talk about the partnership.

It’s odd for any pro sports team to cozy up to a company that’s unashamed to launch coordinated harassment campaigns against anyone who criticizes it for being sexist and racist, especially when that team is

Stop Enabling Barstool's Shit

Stop Enabling Barstool's Shit

Barstool Sports, a site for boys who wanna grow up to be Donald Trump Jr., is getting shit on this week. This is a justified shitting-on, because comedian Miel Bredouw called out the site for using a video that she made without giving her credit—in fact, we found they sometimes upload pilfered content via a dummy Twitter account that is not “officially” affiliated with the company and...

Barstool Sports Shuts Down Comment Section, Silencing Its Most Loyal Racists

Barstool Sports Shuts Down Comment Section, Silencing Its Most Loyal Racists

Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy announced today that his website’s comments section, long one of the most vile places on the internet, has been shuttered “until further notice.” His reasoning was that the biggest fans of the site were just too racist:

So I’ve noticed the comment section which I fucking despise and have despised for a long time is getting worse and worse. We try to stop...

Sociopathic Barstool Founder Dave Portnoy Giddy About "Suffocating" ESPN Host Sam Ponder In "Online War"

Sociopathic Barstool Founder Dave Portnoy Giddy About "Suffocating" ESPN Host Sam Ponder In "Online War"

Barstool Sports founder president Dave Portnoy yet again has gleefully engineered a targeted harassment campaign against a woman who he thinks wronged his company.

It started Tuesday night, when ESPN NFL Countdown host Sam Ponder addressed a comment on her Instagram story that blamed her for Barstool’s short-lived ESPN TV show, Barstool Van Talk, getting canceled last fall. At the time, Ponder...

Barstool Sports Founder Tells Employee She'll Be Too Ugly To Be On Camera In Five Years

During yesterday’s edition of Barstool Radio, a show enjoyed exclusively by Deloitte interns who wish they were still in college, Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy said that one of his employees, 20-year-old Ria Ciuffo, would be too ugly to continue as an on-camera personality in five years. “She’s not going to be able to put her face in front of a camera in five years, because people will...

Barstool Employee Unhappy About Being Filmed In The Shower By His Boss

Barstool Employee Unhappy About Being Filmed In The Shower By His Boss

On Saturday, Barstool Sports president and short-tempered Adderall pill Dave Portnoy posted a video of one of his employees, Adam Smith, naked in the shower. Portnoy published the video to Twitter and then deleted it because, he said, Smith “cried like a baby about his dick being on the internet.”

Interactions between Barstool employees, who are stars in their own shitty reality show more...

Barstool Sports Founder Asks If Harvey Weinstein Should Be Allowed To Exchange Sex For Work

The question was: Actually, should Harvey Weinstein be allowed to demand sex from actresses in exchange for roles in movies? Get ready to listen to the world’s dumbest conversation:

Barstool Sports Asked Potential Employee To Sign Away Her Right To Be Offended

This afternoon, former Fox Sports college football host Elika Sadeghi told a story about how she recently walked away from a job offer from a sports media company because it asked her to sign an agreement acknowledging that she would willingly work in an environment where she might be exposed to “nudity, sexual scenarios, racial epithets, suggestive gestures, profanity and references to...

Barstool Sports Founder Comes Up With Dumbest Possible Reason To Delete Dumbest Possible Post

Barstool Sports Founder Comes Up With Dumbest Possible Reason To Delete Dumbest Possible Post

Barstool Sports, a blog for dipshits, by dipshits, caught hell Tuesday after senior director of editorial strategy and growth—this does not sound like a real job—Chris Spagnuolo wrote a blog about how Rihanna might be fat. Spagnuolo believed the criticism came because no one read past the headline, which was “Is Rihanna Going To Make Being Fat The Hot New Trend?”

Those who read past the...

Idiots Hold Idiot Summit

Idiots Hold Idiot Summit

This week, the public was treated to a rendition of one of Aesop’s lesser-known fables, The Troll, the Moron, and the Stooge. There was no real moral, just a reminder that a sizable portion of the internet consists of opportunists tugging on their own nuts and screeching when they feel they haven’t received enough attention in the last hour.

Barstool Sports, a website for people who never wash...
