Barstool Presidente Dave Portnoy tweeted a scathing take down attacking cancel culture in a post published on Monday. The three minute long video has since gone viral.
The video was posted after the woke mob discovered that Portnoy made off-colour jokes about NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, calling him "an ISIS guy," saying that "he looks like Bin Laden," followed by a tweet saying “Anybody who disagrees with me saying Kaepernick looks like Bin Laden is a moron. #factsonly.”
"The no fun club wants to go back video by video, vlog by vlog, day by day, week by week... and come through everything we've ever said and done. Yeah, you're going to find a few jokes that missed the mark. Things that if they were said today [you would say] 'how could they say this, what are they, idiots?' Times change. Sensitivities change. Cultures change. When you've been doing it for as long as we have, things f*cking change," said Portnoy.
"I'm not going to apologize, I'm not going to bend the knee. The thing people are coming for me now, the Kaepernick, it's literally a joke from The Office, which Steve Carrell has said wouldn't exist nowadays because people would cancel it in two seconds," said Portnoy.
"There's really important issues going on in the world right now. Concentrating on trying to cancel a comedy site whose been doing it for two decades and has a mountain of evidence to support that they're just trying to be funny is not the best use of time."
"Not only that, I hate to break it to you guys, every time you try to cancel us... It just makes us stronger," said Portnoy.
