Et tu, Portnoy?

Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy has been one of the men who has stood up in bold fashion against cancel culture, but now even he has folded to the left-wing mob under the pressure.
He groveled in an “emergency press conference” issued on Thursday that was posted on social media.
“I really viewed it as pure Barstool haters … it’s more about how much they f—in’ hate me. It’s the same thing they’ve been doing for two decades… and I wasn’t going to apologize because I knew I was trying to be funny. I wasn’t trying to offend. The intent was to make people laugh,” Portnoy said. “Here’s what happened: unbeknownst to me and something I didn’t plan on doing, I alienated a lot of the people who work for me now.”
“And guess what, I’m listening to what everybody in the room is saying. It’s one of the great developments of Barstool. Unlike when I started, I have enough dissenting voices now where I can listen. And listening to these guys, I want to have their f—in’ backs and will learn and I will be f—in’ better. I’ll never f—in’ do that again… I didn’t realize how much it affected them, me doing that rant because it hung them out to dry a little bit and that’s not what I want to do. I want to have everybody’s back who works for me,” he added.
