Moment when Dragon Pizza owner gets into FURIOUS X-rated exchange with Barstool founder Dave Portnoy over restaurant review
- Dave Portnoy, 46, called Massachusetts pizza owner a ‘motherf***er’
- The owner of Dragon Pizza slapped Portnoy for his shop
- The pair shouted expletives at each other in the minutes-long argument
The controversial founder of Barstool Sports was caught getting into a furious argument with the owner of a pizzeria in the middle of a review of the restaurant.
Dave Portnoy, 46, got into a shouting match with the unnamed owner of Dragon Pizza, a restaurant in Somerville, eastern Massachusetts, with them both throwing expletives at each other as the founder of Barstool did a review for his “One Bite with Davey Pageview show.
Although the conversation started off short but polite, the argument quickly spiraled into a swearing spiral after the owner told Portnoy that he “didn’t appreciate what you’re doing, come in and judge a business in one bite.”
After being asked to leave the area in front of the restaurant, Portnoy told the owner, “Let me be clear: F*** you.”
He said “f*** you” a few more times, the owner too, as he knocked him out before telling him he was on a “public street, motherfucker.”
The owner retaliates and calls Portnoy a “f***ing b****.”

Dave Portnoy, pictured, the controversial founder of Barstool Sports, recently bought back his company for just $1
“Just go fuck yourself and the whole damn platform you’re on,” he said before threatening to call the police.
Portnoy said in the video, which was uploaded to his pizza review YouTube channel, that he thought the pizza had a 6.4 out of 10, adding that the piece he ate was a “floppy mess.”
He described the restaurant owner as the “worst pizzeria owner in the history of reviews.”
The heated discussion comes just weeks after security documents revealed that Portnoy bought back Barstool Sports for just $1, with the company that bought it, PENN, revealing it would lose a staggering $850 million after the deal.
PENN’s ownership of the media franchise came under heavy scrutiny after several controversial moments from its brash and often obnoxious employees.
“Just go fuck yourself and the whole damn platform you’re on,” the owner said before threatening to call police on Portnoy

“We are stressed about making great content. People come to work and are happy,” he said
“I made more money doing this than I ever dreamed of in my life. I want Barstool to be a place where we don’t worry about making money or growing,” he previously said
In May, former host Ben Mintz was fired by PENN after reading rap lyrics that included the N-Word.
Despite an apology and pleas from Portnoy to keep him, PENN fired Mintz. PENN’s share price fell as a result of its elimination.
In one of his first acts as sole owner, Portnoy brought Mintz back.
He and Mintz posted videos from their side of the same phone call, which showed him returning to Barstool.
Portnoy told DailyMail.com that he will never go public again.
“I made more money doing this than I ever dreamed of in my life. I want Barstool to be a place where we don’t have to worry about making money or growing,” he said.
“We are stressed about making great content. People show up at work and are happy. We are not guided by the end result. We are driven by making people laugh.’
