Emergency Press Conference - Cancel Culture Is Coming For My Head pic.twitter.com/FS3SCMd0BP— Dave Portnoy (@stoolpresidente) June 29, 2020
So just as I predicted it was only a matter of time till cancel culture came for Barstool. Why did I know they'd come for us? Well twofold.

And you can certainly say that Kevin went too far with some of his comments, but that was also par for the course for KFC when talking about everybody during those days. You could say it about me to. But here is where I have a problem. Whoever posted this edited the video. If you continue to roll it we discuss Kaepernick kneeling in more detail and say it’s to protest the treatment of blacks in the United States and we all universally agree that he has the right to kneel.
