Firstly, I’m not an anti-capitalist and Dave has worked incredibly hard to get where he is. But to show off that he is gambling tens of thousands of dollars in the middle of pandemic when millions of people are suffering financially through no fault of their own is just a genuine ‘dick move’.
But on top of that just two weeks ago Dave let a young employee go who played a key role in helping Barstool Sports to produce it’s FIFTH most popular YouTube video in the companies history! That’s right, the employee played a key role in the fifth most popular YouTube video in Barstool Sports history and Dave Portnoy lets him go and then gambles his annual salary in one day. Dave also blamed having to let the employee go on the pandemic.
Can you fucking believe that! In the middle of a pandemic and Dave is gambling with the wages of someone who helped him to make the fifth most popular video in Barstool Sports history….Just about a Dick Move as you can get.
Barstool Sports is sold as “For the people, by the people”.
Well some people are losing their jobs and hitting serious financial hardship and also let someone go despite helping Barstool Sports to make it’s fifth most popular video (and also made a video on his own that got 2,400,000 views) Dave is on Twitter showing off how he’s gambling wads of cash. Just pathetic.
I’m not saying Barstool Sports should be a charity but to kick someone in the teeth in the middle of pandemic and then gambling with their wages is just pathetic. You might also think I’m against Dave but I did thank him for giving Frank a full-time job. I’m just being fair and reasonable.
Yes Dave has worked incredibly hard but to let someone who go in the middle of pandemic who plays a key role in the companies fifth most popular YouTube video and then gamble with their wages….Man to man, let’s be honest…just pathetic.
