Dave Portnoy Gets Mistaken for Bernie Madoff in Fox Business Article | @stoolpresidente

Woof.

It appeared that Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy’s face was mistakenly inserted in an online news post earlier Monday.

On Twitter, Portnoy tweeted out that a picture of him saying, “THIS IS ASSAULT!” after his face was erroneously inserted in a Fox Business article.

The article was about the now-deceased, but notorious Ponzi scheming financier Bernie Madoff, who reportedly had a couple of his toes amputated before passing away back in April.

For Fox Business, it shouldn’t have been hard to figure out who was Portnoy and who was Madoff. Like, look at the picture below, do they look similar?

What a total epic fail on Fox’s end.
