    Correct, but it is self-aware and does not take itself too seriously which is part of its charm for some of us.

    "Yeah, we post racist things and sexually harass female sports reporters, but we are self-aware and don't take ourselves too seriously" is not a good defense of the behavior exhibited by the "Stoolies."

    These are the guys who called Sam Ponder a c*nt, right?

    And also managed to get a Tampa Bay Rays field reporter fired.

    Barstool sucks, plain and simple.

    You know what, i am into second chances. After these guys called Sam Ponder a c*nt, I am sure, with reflection, they thought better of it, and said, "my bad" and apologized.

    Can someone post a link of their mea culpa?

    Unfunny hyperaggressive Tucker Max sports comedy for collar poppers who rushed Deke but couldn't get in?

    Interesting read. Is she a token? Is it woke to call her that? Is ok to be unwoke because the cause to destroy barstool is so righteous?

    Or maybe both these groups are total hypocrites who should exist on their own planes with their own fans and stop kicking each others hornets nests.

    Bullshit, she went on Barstool with the assumption that they were racist assholes like her. What actually happened was that when she said "I didn't think Mexicans were that smart." they ironically played it for comedy gold.
