Troll Socks Made A Shit Ton Of Money Taking Bomba’s Place On Kirk Minihane’s Podcast, Proving That Companies That Cater To SJW Mobs Are Fucking Idiots

Last week we published a blog about Dave Portnoy refusing to backup Kirk Minihane at Barstool Sports after professional douchebag Bob Murchison began harassing Barstool’s advertisers because they hired Kirk. This is what rich SJWs do with their time – try to use their influence to get advertisers to stop advertising on shows unless they cater the content to their liking. When this happens you get the Greg Hill Show on WEEI, and we all know what an abortion salad that’s been so far.

Portnoy was pissed because Bomba’s socks cancelled advertising on the Minihane podcast because of Murchison’s activism. But instead of telling Murchison to go pound sand Portnoy told Minihane he was on his own if he was going to continue to defend himself on the podcast.

But what he should’ve done is tell Bomba’s that because they were getting harassed he was going to personally pimp the shit out of him and get them record sales in one day. He has the power to do it with his platform, not only because he has millions of followers, but because those followers are incredibly loyal. And even if they don’t need socks, they’d still buy some just so they can feel like they told Bob Murchison to go fuck himself. We used to do this all the time with our advertisers when they were harassed by “boycotters,” and we had lines out the door at places like Smokestack Barbecue, Pepe’s, and Bennie’s Cafe as a result.

That’s where a new company called Troll Socks saw an opportunity.

With Bomba’s gone the Minihane Show needed a sponsor, so Troll Socks stepped up to the plate and Minihane did what Portnoy should’ve done – pimped the shit out of them. First Troll Socks published a blog titled:

A Letter To Kirk Minihane’s Fans: We Defend Free Speech And Stand With The Mentally Ill and Blind People Of The World Against Humorless Social Justice Warriors And Will NEVER Apologize Or Back Down For It

Which is the most bad ass title ever, and the only one longer than the ones we produce on a daily basis without using a compound word that includes “fupa” in it.

To all the loyal Kirk Minihane fans reading this I want you to know that we are not just another sock company that pretends to be self righteous but then cowers when a social justice warrior threatens them. Troll Socks will never fold to a social justice warrior, ever. We just want to make fun socks that people will be just as happy to give as gifts as they would be to receive them. We believe in your right to say what you want to say, make the jokes that you want to make, and not have to apologize for it. ESPECIALLY when its so blatantly obvious that there has never been any malice behind it, like in Kirk’s case. Kirk has been railroaded and unfairly targeted and it’s been an absolute disgrace to watch. We were sad to hear that Bombas dropped their ads, because Bombas had enough money to make an impact in the Kirk Minihane Show, and help Kirk with some ad revenue to grow his podcast into a juggernaut.

Bombas made a fatal error in not recognizing the power and loyalty of the Kirk Minihane fanbase and I think they’ll be sorry for a long time that they caved into the pressure of a lie-ridden copy-paste e-mail. They should hire some new decision makers with a backbone. 

It’s like music to my ears.

So they reached a deal with Minihane who had them on as a sponsor for one day, and he did what Portnoy should’ve done with Bomba’s……

The results speak for themselves.

Boom – $5,600 in one day. Why? Because brands like Turtleboy and Minihane have the most loyal followings on the Internet. Our readers will literally support your business out of pure spite, even if they don’t want what you’re selling, because it’s their only way to stick it to Bob Murchison.

This is what more businesses need to do. We need less cowards, and more Troll Socks. Not only because they’re doing the right thing, but because they’re doing the smart thing. The snowflake generation has graduated from college and they’re all becoming sellouts by working in corporate America. They do dumb shit all the time, like pull advertising from Fox News because David Hogg boycotts them. The entire point of advertising is to be seen by as many people as possible so you can generate more sales. It has nothing to do with only being seen on brands that promote faux social justice.

The more free speech gets shut down the more people yearn for it. And when you do that you make a shit ton of money, which is literally the entire point of opening a business. If you’re in business because you wanna virtue signal and prove to the world what a humanitarian you are, go work for Nike.

I think it’s safe to say that Troll Socks would be the ideal advertiser for Turtleboy, and I anxiously await Turtleboy socks being next in their production line. Click here to check out what they offer and get yourself a pair.

    A small company can do something like this. But a large company that has 40% customer base of Social Justice Warriors that then defies someone like AOC is going to lose 40% forever and they cannot bounce back from that. Troll socks are great and I Commend them but Dunkin Donuts cannot do what they did! Panera Bread cannot do what they did!. The 90s were so much easier to live and breath in this world. Everyone has a voice now and the Millenials are starting the Pussification of America

    Bobs daughter/son is on the dating app Feeld. Definitely don’t contact her on there and ruin her dating experience like she helped ruin your sports radio experience.

    This may be the dumbest things you ever posted and that’s saying alot. You are so short-sighted its mind-boggling.

    This type of temporary stunt tells me this is a company with no plan establish long term success.

    To attach your name to a sinking, mentally-ill (his words, not mine) untalented personality like Kirk is Business 101 suicide. Yeah great, you sold some socks today. A week from now?

      Troll Socks has had a Twitter account since 2017 and FaceBook since 5/31/2018. So, they didn’t pop up specifically with the opening left by Bombas. They were already making socks. You have to start somewhere.

      Bombas went on Shark Tank to get extra funding in 2014. 2017 had $50,000,000 in sales.
      Before Bombas was Bombas they were nothing and had to start somewhere.

      I doubt Troll Socks will be as successful as Bombas. I think they are perfectly capable of a niche if they stay on top of current events and quickness in creating product. It looks like they have Fredo socks for sale.

      BTW, the point of this blog post was to ignore pressure people and groups, not that Bombas’s dick is bigger than Troll Socks’s dick. Oh, you also miss the point that Troll Socks is trolling. Their existence is to piss people off. Looks like they got a keeper in you.

      “The mentally-ill (his words, not mine) ” sure didn’t stop you from using them though.
