I love Barstool Sports and majority of the personalities on the website but one thing that I wouldn’t agree with joking about right now is someone having the coronavirus.
A clip went semi-viral of someone calling into Mike Francesa’s radio show claiming that Barstool Sports owner Dave Portnoy has coronavirus and adding in that Francesa might need to get checked.
Francesa went into saying that he hasn’t seen Portnoy since his Pizza Review with him a couple months ago. He then went on to saying that he sends all his best wishes to Portnoy, believing the caller just like anyone would.
It turns out that this “anonymous” caller is Barstool employee, Blind Mike.
Alright… This coronavirus situation isn’t something to joke about or make claims that someone else has it. C’mon Blind Mike… I don’t care if you’re trying to make a joke, this isn’t the time!
Now Barstool is going to be known for having an employee call into radio shows lying about Portnoy having the virus!
