Kevin ‘KFC’ Clancy Defends Barstool After Palestine Comments
Kevin ‘KFC’ Clancy defended Barstool Sports after controversy erupted this past weekend due to comments made in a recently-unearthed segment.
In the segment, Clancy, Dave Portnoy and Dan ‘Big Cat’ Katz can be seen discussing Colin Kaepernick, Arabs and Palestinians. The clip shows the men speaking and condoning comments that some on Twitter have deemed as improper.
As a result, many on social media are attempting to ‘cancel’ Barstool – as has become in vogue recently.

Shortly after the controversy erupted this past Sunday, Clancy came out and defended the brand he is married to. This is to be expected, because when you’re married to something you stay loyal to it no matter what.
Back into the blender we go. Did I ever really leave it though?

Based on how resilient Barstool Sports has been in past controversies, it is unlikely that this most recent one will do any significant damage either.
The only possible mild casualty of it may be Katz, who is the most mainstream of this threesome and works the hardest to cultivate a non-offensive personality. Even that is unlikely, though.
More likely than not this storm will pass in a few days and everyone will move on with their lives.
