ESPN Cancels Barstool Sports Show After One Episode

Just one episode after airing, "Barstool Van Talk" was cancelled based off of a misogynistic blog post from a few years ago about one of the female ESPN employees, Sam Ponder. In the 2014 blog post, she's referenced as "a chick that has a job where the #1 requirement is you make men hard." Later on in the same post, they tell her to "go f*** yourself."

The President of ESPN released the following statement:

 

So, you thought you were going to distance yourself from the Barstool site/content, by hiring the Barstool guys and using the Barstool branding for a show that includes the name Barstool?

Oh, ok.

Barstool actually held an "emergency press conference" to address the cancellation.
