Barstool Sports President Dave Portnoy Responds To Allegations From Women

Barstool Sports president Dave Portnoy is under fire on Thursday after a Business Insider piece detailed some of his sexual exploits, basically depicting him as a predator.

According to the article, Portnoy got aggressive with women against their will on multiple occasions, preyed on woman right out of high school, and even drove one of his hook-ups into having mental health issues.

The story on Dave Portnoy took eight months to publish and included accounts from multiple anonymous sources.

Dave Portnoy was quick to respond. The popular – but controversial – company president was quick to say that he wasn’t surprised this story came out given how many women were informing him that a reporter was digging around. But he maintained that he has never done anything non-consensual during sex.

Dave Portnoy started off his eighteen-minute remarks by saying that he was aware it wasn’t in his best interest legally or professionally to speak in-depth on these serious allegations. But he thought it was necessary to try to get out ahead of this story.

So far, it’s unclear what will come of these allegations, or if authorities will get involved.

For now, Dave Portnoy will continue running day-to-day operations for Barstool Sports.
