Social Justice Warriors on social media are all fired up that the Bruins accepted sponsorship money from Huffstool Sports and put their brand on towels last night.
As anyone who has followed Barstool over the years knows, they built their brand by being edgy and entertaining. They said what people were thinking and that’s why they were popular. When you do that SJWs come after you and accuse you of being racist, sexist, homophobic, etc.
Then once Barstool had a big enough following and wanted to make more money they sold out to the Chernin Group and started putting out content like this:
And now they’re Huffstool.
I used to visit them regularly but don’t even bother anymore because nothing they put out is interesting or even close to being edgy.
That’s why the best thing they have going for them are the SJWs at Deadspin who continue to pretend like Huffstool is an offensive blog that demeans women, which in turn drives more people to Huffstool because everyone who doesn’t have a stick up their ass hates Deadspin.

Turtleboy is what Deadspin thinks Barstool is. We are the only media entity in New England that actually calls out PC culture and isn’t afraid to say what people are thinking, consequences be damned. This guy seems to agree:
“They have some political connections outside of 495.”
Newsflash – we have political connections inside of 495 too dipshit.
But I’m truly honored that you recognize that we have long passed Huffstool as the voice of the common man and woman in New England.
As one commenter pointed out, bootleg Santa Claus is a failed reporter who once worked for the Turtlegram and Gazette.
He now works for the Woonsocket Call, and working for a newspaper that no one has ever heard of in a God forsaken hellhole like Woonsocket, is the definition of rock bottom. No wonder he mad.
People come to Turtleboy specifically because we say things that everyone knows are true, but that people can’t express openly. Like how a dude winning the 400 women’s meter hurdles at the NCAA Championship is cowardly and problematic. Huffstool might’ve said that back in the day, but would never dream of blogging about that now.
Nevertheless, Huffstool continues to get free advertising from these pearl clutching blue checkmarks who believe that the Bruins accepting money from a PC bro site means that the Bruins are endorsing sexism, racism, etc.
Laura Wagner from Deadspin is obsessed with giving Huffstool free publicity too. And she used her platform to try to get the Bruins director of communications fired for liking tweets from Huffstool.
Liking tweets. This is the world we’re living in.
And this BLT-123 sure seems sane.
I am a transgender hockey fan, and I outwardly identified as female for most of my sportswriting career. Barstool's writers and fans HATE ME FOR WHO I AM. So by proxy, @NHLBruins, I suppose that means you do too.
Feels bad man.

Imagine what it’s like to wake up every day and be that upset about a towel at a hockey game. Imagine feeling so self important that you think that because you’re some BLT-123 activist/sports writer on Twitter the Bruins organization “hates” you, or even knows who you are.
Ultimately they’re doing the same thing our critics do – pretending that the Huffstool commenters are somehow representative of the content on the blog itself. Anyone who makes that suggestion should be laughed, mocked, and certainly shouldn’t be taken seriously.
These people all have the same look too. This is your run of the mill 2019 beta male virtue signaling on Twitter.
Hipster glasses and ear buds.
Every. Single. Time.
Anyway, good for Huffstool I guess. They completely changed their brand and aren’t the least bit offensive anymore, which allows them to maintain sponsorships and advertisers, but they still get these people to drive traffic to them when they whine about how the Bruins should partner with such an “edgy” media outlet.
