Actor Michael Rapaport joined Barstool Sports over the summer and appeared on several of their shows, including The Rundown and was a fairly regular guest on their Sirius XM radio show.
Rapaport was fired from Barstool early Sunday morning after getting into an all out war on Twitter with several of the websites employees. He took several shots at his former co-workers, including some that turned personal.
But that’s not necessarily what got him fired. Rapaport took a shot at one of the site’s fans, who call themselves “Stoolies”, for calling himself a Stoolie.
if you call yourself a fucking stoolie for real, you've already lost in life

That’s apparently a deal breaker and prompted Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy to issue a statement on Rapaport’s firing.

This isn’t Rapaport’s first feud with the sports media. He’s mixed it up with Bill Simmons and Dan Le Batard in the past.
With a pretty successful acting career to hang his hat on, I’m sure he’ll be just fine.
Update: Michael Rapaport highjacked the main Barstool Sports Twitter account and posted a response video to Portnoy.
