We’re tracking the conservative culture clash with woke Hollywood hypocrites to keep you up to date on who’s winning and who we hate.
Here’s what happened today:
100 Percent False
Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy denied accusations that he treated a 20-year-old woman like a “human sex doll,” allegedly having sex so “rough” with her, that she felt like she “was being raped,” and was “screaming in pain.”
In a two-minute long rebuttal, Portnoy said the sex was “100 percent consesual” and her accusations wer “100 percent false.”
“There’s not an ounce of credibility to it. If this woman, the reporter, wants to print and talk to all the girls I’ve actually hooked up with and known, you’re going to see just one after another, ‘great guy, respectful,’ yes, may like kinky sex,” he detailed.
“Yes, may send sex messages things like that, both ways,” Portnoy argued. “Take anything like that out of the bedroom and put it out of context, yeah, it looks fucking weird.”
He said that none of the other women he has ever been with “have ever said a thing” about their sex life. Portnoy also admitted that he feels like he has “a target on [his] back,” and the terrible experience has been “eye-opening.”
“It’s, like, scary. It’s actually fucking scary because people can basically say whatever they want and this is going to be the new narrative: ‘Dave Portnoy’s a rapist,’” he added.
“Cancel culture has been coming for me for decades, this is just the next iteration,” Portnoy concluded. “The woke cancel culture wants to cancel me … I’m scared now.”

The Dallas Mavericks announced that fans would need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to attend home games.
In a surprising twist, the Mark Cuban owned NBA team went back on the decision. “The Mavericks, in conjunction with the NBA, announced today that beginning Nov. 15, fans seated beyond 15 feet of the court will no longer need to complete a Fan Health Survey to enter the game,” the team said in a statement.
“Those same fans will also no longer need to submit proof of a negative COVID-19 test or full vaccination status within 48 hours of the game,” the announcement continued, though fans over the age of two will be required to wear masks at the arena.
“People are still getting vaccinated. Booster shots are becoming more prevalent,” Cuban commented. “Cases are going down. Let’s hope people stay smart. Don’t want cases to go back up and have to re-institute the requirements.”
Celebrity Chef Mario Batali will face sexual misconduct charges in a Boston court on April 11. Food Network’s former Iron Chef pleaded not guilty to indecent assault and battery, after being accused of kissing and groping a woman at a restaurant in 2017.
Batali stepped down from the day-to-day operations of his restaurant empire after four women accused him of inappropriate touching the same year.
The not guilty plea is a reversal from the responsibility he accepted at the time. “I have made many mistakes and I am so very sorry that I have disappointed my friends, my family, my fans and my team,” Batali wrote in a newsletter. “My behavior was wrong and there are no excuses. I take full responsibility.”
His restaurant group paid $600,000 in July to settle a four-year probe by the New York attorney general’s office into allegations that he and other employees sexually harassed female workers.
Marvel star Chris Pratt drew the ire of social media users for being “cringe and vile” for a birthday post to wife Katherine Schwarzenegger, who he praised for giving him a “healthy daughter.”
“She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter, she chews so loudly that sometimes I put in my earbuds to drown it out, but that’s love,” he wrote on Thursday.
While the comment seems banal, internet critics blasted Pratt for lauding his “healthy” child, when his 9-year-old son, Jack, with ex-wife Anna Faris has had health issues since birth.
“Chris Pratt has a kid with Anna Farris [sic] who suffered a cerebral hemorrhage during birth and now has slight physical disabilities because of it. But he made sure to write ‘healthy daughter’ here,” one user wrote. “Chris Pratt is a d**k.”
“I love Chris Pratt, but the ‘healthy daughter’ part is made me wince,” another tweeted. “Although he may not have meant it as an insult, it sort of came off that way. Imagine how that will make his son feel, if he ever reads it?”
Supermodel Heidi Klum ate a piece of pie in the partial buff while lounging in bed while only wearing a bra. The 48-year-old used the pie plate to cover up her crotch, while she ate it off her bare bottom half.
Oh! My! Yummy Pie,” she captioned the Instagram post.
Comedian Chris Rock bashed anti-vaxxers in a recent comedy set, taking a swipe at unvaccinated Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving in the process. “Where’s my anti-vaxxers at?” Rock asked. “You f**king dumb, Kyrie motherf**kers!”
He then asked the crowd to give a cheer for their vaccination choice. “Is it Moderna?” he questioned. “Is it Pfizer? Is it J and J [Johnson and Johnson], the food stamp of vaccines.”
Chris Rock was at Brooklyn Steel last night to introduce The Strokes…but first he roasted anti-vaxxers and gave everyone a new name for them 🤣pic.twitter.com/Aa6dhg4arg
