Barstool Sports is making its rounds on the internet outrage tour Wednesday after a former Fox Sports host who turned down a job at Barstool revealed the employee contract she would have had to sign.

The contract required employees to agree to work around, and not ever be offended by, racism, sexism, nudity, profanity and stereotypes.

The contract

Elika Sadeghi tweeted that she was offered a job with a 2-year contract and good salary with Barstool sports, but was turned off from the opportunity when she saw received this employee agreement:

The founder of Barstool Sports, Dave Portnoy, responded to Sadeghi's tweets with a profanity-laced video confirming that they created the agreement and accusing Sadeghi of trying to draw attention to herself. But, he also claimed he had never seen the contract before.


“She redacted our name, but everyone knows, because she kind of has a big mouth, that we offered her the contract," Portnoy said. "And she wanted everybody to know that, like, she turned us down. Thank friggin’ God, because it would have been a nightmare working with this girl.”

Portnoy said the contract language was "boilerplate stuff" that employees at places like Saturday Night Live have to sign.

"You can't be offended by eating a-- jokes, 69 jokes, Jew jokes. You just can't. Because we do it 24/7," Portnoy said.

Portnoy also took offense to Sadeghi's attempt to connect the contract to the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment and assault accusations.

"F--- you for making us a part of this story. We have nothing to do with this. We aren't Harvey Weinstein," Portnoy said, addressing Sadeghi directly.
