Former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason sounded off on the devastating consequences of corporations going “woke,” which refers to companies promoting left-wing social activism.
Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy recently exposed a liberal activist reporter working on behalf of The Washington Post by recording a phone call and releasing it.
The reporter emailed Portnoy’s advertisers and falsely claimed that he has “a history of misogynistic comments and other problematic behavior.” (Trending: The Chilling Number of Illegals With Ties to Terrorists)

Esiason, who won the NFL MVP award in 1988, said the left-wing reporter is an “absolute, obvious” example of “cancel culture syndrome.”
“The real question is do you think Dave Portnoy has ever called somebody who’s advertising within the Washington Post and says, ‘Do you know what these people are doing behind the backs of everyone else?’” Esiason posited. (Trending: Unearthed Clip Shows Joe and Hunter Discussing Business)
“It’s a one-way street,” he continued.
“This is basically proof positive of what the woke aspect of this world is all about, right there,” Esiason said.
Portnoy’s advertisers revealed an email that shows the Washington Post wrote, “We are planning to write about the festival and how some of the sponsors and participants have drawn criticism by seeming to associate themselves with Dave Portnoy, who has a history of misogynistic comments and other problematic behavior.” (Trending: Biden Family Is Officially In Panic Mode)
The reporter’s attempt to shame sponsors appears to have backfired due to Portnoy’s effort to fight back.
