Barstool Sports Dave Portnoy El Presidente threatening to fire employees if they think about unionizing.

Barstool Sports founder Dave "El Presidente" Portnoy took to Twitter to make light of the fact that the staff members of Sports blogging site The Ringer want to unionize by reposting on an old piece he wrote back in 2015.

In comes Rafi Letzer, who offers to chat with anyone at Barstool interested in unionizing.

Then this is where Dave drops the bomb. 

That single tweet, which was likely a joke, set off a chain of events that got even AOC involved among others.

And we're left with this gem:

UPDATE 8/19:

As reported by The Daily Beast, The National Labor Board will be investigating Dave Portnoy's tweets about firing employees "on the sport" if they contacted @RafiLetzer about unionizing.

A group called the Committee to Preserve the Religious Right to Organize has also filed charging papers with the NLRB. The seek, "that Mr. Portnoy be required to tweet and otherwise publicize his severe and sincere apology and to post the appropriate Notice on the public website." 

The NLRB has acknowledged the filing, and a letter has been sent to Barstool Sports awaiting a response.
