Dave Portnoy receives huge backlash for putting Barstool Sports' reality TV show behind a paywall... and responds to his critics with 'emergency press conference' to slam 'poor people' who are refusing to pay $9.99 PPV fee
Describing himself as a 'great leader' and 'leader of men,' Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy is hitting back at 'poor people' criticizing him for charging $9.99 for a pay-per-view event. 'I would never complain about nine bucks, you f***ing poor people,' Portnoy said in a self-shot video. As Portnoy explained, he originally wanted to air his reality show 'Surviving Barstool' for free on the website's YouTube channel. But when YouTube decided the content might incite violence, his crew was given three hours to edit out the offending material from previous episodes or risking being banned from the platform. 'No f***ing way was I gonna edit Surviving Barstool,' the 46-year-old Swampscott, Massachusetts native said in what he described as an 'emergency press conference.' The decision was made to move the content off YouTube, so to recoup some lost ad revenue, Portnoy initially decided to put the footage on PPV and charge $9.99.
SPECIAL REPORT: From US Olympic hero to Capitol rioter... the rise and fall of swimmer Klete Keller, who won gold for Team USA but faces sentencing TODAY after joining January 6 mob
It was a little after 3:30pm by the time Klete Keller stepped on to the subway in Washington DC. The sun had not yet set but already darkness enveloped the nation's capital. He was soon approached by a young boy. The child had spotted Keller's jacket, which carried all the bells and whistles of the USA Olympic team. The boy asked Keller if he was really an athlete. He wanted to know about the former swimmer's career, which between 2000 and 2008 took the 6ft 6ins Keller to three Games. He won five medals including two golds, with a teammate claiming his anchor leg in the 4x200m freestyle at Athens 2004 - when Keller held off the great Ian Thorpe - cemented his place as 'an American hero'. No wonder the child asked for a picture. Before long, however, Keller had thrown the jacket in the garbage. He took a hammer to his cell phone, too. Because earlier that afternoon, on January 6 2021, the Olympian had made 'one of the worst decisions of my life.'
