  • Dave Portnoy was seen using the n-word in a video.
  • He got “canceled” on Twitter.
  • Even though he claims he’s “uncancellable,” he couldn’t be more wrong.

Dave Portnoy is at it again. A super-racist clip of the Barstool Sports founder has surfaced online, and it features the full spectrum of gross behavior.

Racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, and the n-word are all dropped in the video.

And while Portnoy claims he’s “uncancellable,” he couldn’t be more wrong.

Dave Portnoy Is an Awful Human

In a Twitter thread beginning on June 25th , an account called Resist Programming dropped a series of videos featuring Dave Portnoy.

And, as is par for the course, his awful behavior was on full display.

The n-word is dropped more times than in Jay-Z’s “The Blueprint.” Colin Kaepernick gets compared to Osama Bin Laden. And Portnoy and his Barstool Bros brag about “full blackface.”

What a prize of a man.

But the videos didn’t really get traction until Jemele Hill tweeted them out.

When Portnoy subsequently called out Hill  for calling him out, the Barstool Bros got #CancelJemele trending .


You Most Certainly Can Be Canceled, Sir

While Dave Portnoy claims he’s “uncancellable,”  the truth proves the exact opposite.

His 2017 ESPN show, “Barstool Van Talk,” lasted only one episode . He was canceled after an ESPN anchor called him out for his sexist attacks against her.

And that was long before “cancel culture” was even a thing.

After cancel culture became a thing, Portnoy had it a lot worse. Based on the responses to the videos, Barstool Sports’ day in the sun is over . People don’t find their brand of “Beavis & Butt-Head” style “comedy” funny anymore.

Dave Portnoy isn’t even a majority stakeholder  in Barstool Sports anymore. So if there’s a shred of truth to the claim that he’s “uncancellable,”  it’s only because there’s just not much left to cancel.
