'I was literally screaming in pain': a young women alleges as part of a piece that appeared on Business Insider Thursday.  She claims to have met Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy for sex and it turned violent and humiliating. 


Reporter Julia Black says it is "the hardest I've ever worked on a story"

Black spoke with three women who claim to have had sex with Portnoy. Two say that Portnoy choked them while filming the encounter without their advance permission. All were afraid to speak out in fear of retribution from Barstool Sports readers.

Portnoy was quick to deny the claims, calling the report "a hit piece" that has been "eight months in the making" via Twitter.

In the over nine minute long response, Portnoy discusses how Business Insider portrays him to be a "sexual deviant".  He also noted that, while lawyers advised him to be careful with his response, he opted to ignore them. 

"I'm going to do what I always do, I'm gonna tell the truth."

Portnoy says he was well aware of the Business Insider investigation after various women warned him that they were being questioned and asked about any deviant sexual behaviour.

"I have had tons of girls who have documented that was their conversation with that reporter," he relayed.

Penn National, the parent company of Barstool Sports, was witnessing a 22% decline in its stock price as of Thursday afternoon.

Barstool Sports recently launched its own mobile sportsbook and is licensed in Iowa, Arizona, Tennessee, Colorado, New Jersey, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.  It was not immediately clear how regulators might react to these allegations.
