Dave Portnoy Reacts To Barstool’s Kaepernick Controversy

Dave Portnoy has responded to Barstool Sports’ latest controversy.

On Sunday, Twitter unearthed an old video in which he, Dan ‘Big Cat’ Katz and Kevin ‘KFC’ Clancy discuss Colin Kaepernick, Palestinians and Arabs in a way that some find distasteful.

As a result, some on social media are calling for their cancellation – because that is the time we live in now.

Shortly after the video came out, Portnoy came out and strongly defended his brand against any accusations of bigotry or hate.

Portnoy also fired back at Jemele Hill, who responded to the video by indicating that she would expect nothing less from the Barstool brand.

Portnoy was not the only Barstool employee to defend the company. Clancy also spoke out on Monday.

Based on everything we have seen and heard from Barstool and its fan base up to this point, it is safe to assume that this most recent controversy likely will not do any real long-term damage.
