This is John Feitelberg from Fall River.
He’s a 31 year old blogger and podcast host for Barstool Sports, the only job he’s ever known.
John is the lucky sperm of John Feitelberg, the President of HUB International.
His grandfather Joseph Feitelberg founded a successful insurance/brokerage firm, and has been honored as a commencement speaker at UMass Dartmouth. His other grandfather, John H. O’Neil, was a well respected judge. Feitelberg attended Portsmouth Abbey in Rhode Island for high school, where tuition for boarding students is $63,050, while the day tuition is a measly $39,810.
He’s had everything handed to him in life (with the exception of having to live in Fall River), the only job he’s ever had involves writing blogs in his underpants, and he knows absolutely nothing about how the world works. In other words, he is the ideal content creator for Barstool Sports.
Last week Obama made headlines when he said that leftists have to chill out with cancel culture because mobs of blue checkmarks on Twitter who get people fired for shit they said 8 years ago aren’t doing anything to advance actual social justice. He was 1,000% right, but according to man boobs cancel culture isn’t real. That’s what he said in a podcast last week on KFC Radio starting around the 21 minute mark.
I broke down what a moron he is on today’s podcast.
The only people who think cancel culture isn’t real are people who haven’t been cancelled, and people who are in the “in group” and aren’t in danger of being cancelled. Feitelberg hasn’t been cancelled, despite saying controversial things in the past, because he works for Barstool Sports. And for the most part Dave Portnoy isn’t going to fire employees because blue checkmarks demand it. But he’s done it before (Chris Spags, Francis Ellis), and he’d do it to man boobs in a second if he said the wrong thing. Fortunately for him he’s not in danger of ever saying anything interesting enough to get cancelled over.
This is the difference between Turtleboy and Barstool. We have actual adults who have deal with actual life problems and understand how the world works. Dave employs college bros in their underpants who wake up at 9:30. Their biggest demographic is 18-24, which is our smallest demographic. Our’s is 35-44 followed by 25-34. People who work for a living, have families, pay taxes, and understand how fucked up the world is.
Man boobs did an interview with the Herald News last year that sums up his world view perfectly. Here’s some quotes that basically sum what a moron he is.
Everyone here more or less works for themselves so I guess I would say I’m the CEO of me.
Translation – I don’t know what it’s like to have a real boss, so I’m pretty immune to cancel culture.
Most weekends I’ll just lay on the couch and watch Netflix until I have to be at work again.
I pretty much hate anyone who can afford to lay on the couch all weekend and watch Netflix. If this is an option for you then you’re completely insulated from reality.
This was a good one.
I think like a lot of media coverage these days, people notice it’s getting clicks so everyone picks up on it, with each subsequent outlet trying to one up the last headline and make it more inflammatory, then it spirals out of control and gets pretty ridiculous.
Oh, you mean like cancel culture? But wait, I thought that doesn’t exist?
Just for the record, he works for an organization that has been victimized by cancel culture. Barstool had a show on ESPN that lasted one episode before a mob of blue checkmarks harassed the network until they agreed to drop them. They used to do “blackout” parties, in which college kids got wasted and had fun, but got cancelled because feminists said that it was rape culture.
Barstool employs Kirk Minihane now, and the only reason he’s there is because he was cancelled by ONE FUCKING GUY at WEEI. Bob Murchison, a man of no real significance, armed only with a gmail account, single handedly got multiple advertisers to drop their partnership with WEEI by bombarding them with misleading emails filled with intentional misinformation. Since then a guy who lied about graduating from Harvard and likely lied about his military service nearly got Minihane’s show cancelled with the help of another Barstool employee (Chaps).
Meanwhile, I invented cancel culture. I quit my job at Shepherd Hill because a mob of people bombarded the school with complaints about Turtleboy being an offensive blog. I had previously been suspended for 5 days after publishing a blog on my old website (AidanFromWorcester.com) because I said that 300 pound linemen for the Miami Dolphins can’t be the victim of bullying. Because I held these opinions I was cancelled. Then I started this blog and have lost countless advertisers, been blacklisted by Google AdSense and Twitter, lost over 40 Facebook pages with close to a million followers, and been sued multiple times in an attempt to silence my speech. The things that we deal with on a day to day basis are so foreign to this lucky sperm shithead.
Off the top of my head the following other people have been victims of cancel culture, and I explain why in the podcast.
- Colin Kaepernick (sorry, it’s undeniable)
- Carson King
- Shane Gillis
- Bret Weinstein
- Megyn Kelly
- Kyle Kashuv
- Steven Crowder
- Brett Kavanaugh
- Dean Ronald Sullivan
There’s millions more. They literally went through Kavanaugh’s yearbook because he’s too old to have old tweets dug up. Anyone who thinks cancel culture isn’t real should be relentlessly mocked because they are morons.
