Barstool founder Dave Portnoy has threatened to get rid of the company’s New York City office, as he accused three employees of leaking the link to a live stream which he chose to terminate.

While the company’s Chris Klemmer began an 100-hour challenge of solitary confinement earlier in the week, Portnoy decided the broadcast of the event was too boring and shut it down.

However, a link to the video feed of Klemmer – who was still carrying on in solitary confinement through Friday – was allegedly leaked, and Portnoy was furious.

‘I may clean out the entire nyc office,’ Portnoy said Thursday on X. ‘It’s one thing to not produce s**t It’s another thing to f*** my s**t up.’

In a separate post, Portnoy singled out Kelly Keegs, Jack ‘Kenjac’ Kennedy and Gia Mariano for blame.

Warning: graphic language 

‘Here is my reaction to finding out that the triumphant of Kelly Keegs, Kenjac and Gia had managed to leak an active link of Klemmer to the public for a few hours last night,’ he captioned a video. ‘Safe to say I was not happy.’

In the clip, Portnoy could be seen screaming angrily on the phone to an unidentified caller before berating Keegs, Kennedy and Mariano one by one.

‘What the f*** are you doing? Wake the f*** up,’ Portnoy could be heard screaming in the clip. 

‘Who f*****g turned on the TV? Why? What the f*** are you guys doing in that office? Just d*****g around, playing with a bowling ball, watching? You’re there to f*****g work and make content. Wake the f*** up.’

Portnoy cancelled Barstool Radio because they refused to rehash company infighting

On X, Mariano called herself a ‘complete dumba**’ but denied deliberately leaking the stream.

The drama comes after Keegs was taken off her radio show and branded ‘brain dead’ by Portnoy.

‘These two might be the most tone deaf, brain dead, idiotic…,’ Portnoy said of Keegs and former Barstool Radio co-host Francis Ellis. ‘Francis and Kelly are the wrong people. Go back to blogging.’

Portnoy replaced the pair with a new show featuring Barstool personalities Kirk Minihane, Ryan Whitney and himself.
