Nadeshot gets revenge after Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy roasts him

100 Thieves CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag caught the attention of Barstool Sports’ founder Dave Portnoy after saying Cheez-Its aren’t a good snack.

It seems pretty common for the 100 Thieves organization’s members to share controversial opinions, with CouRage regularly stating Transformers is his favorite movie series, and now Nadeshot is getting in on the fun.

We can’t fault the hustle too much since it’s an excellent way to drum up some engagement on tweets. This particular one even caught the eye of some big names to ramp up the responses even more. “Cheez-It’s are the lowest tier snack in the world,” he said.

Cheez-It crackers are a beloved snack by many around the world and there’s a flavor for anybody out there. Well, almost anyone as Nadeshot clearly doesn’t seem to enjoy the crunchy snack at all.

The 100 Thieves CEO received a bunch of pushback on this tweet, but nothing could compare to what Barstool’s Portnoy had to say.

“You seem successful,” he started. “But you are clearly a brain dead moron who doesn’t deserve to breathe the same air as the rest of us. Cheeze It slander will not be tolerated around these parts.”

It’s clear that Portnoy is a big Cheez-It fan himself and will fight to stop people from slandering the brand’s good name. In fact, Portnoy has become a bit of food critic himself, and even came out with his own app called “One Bite.”

It started as a pizza review video series but grew in popularity so much that it had to move into an app format. Even Nadeshot is a fan of it, and he got his revenge over the Barstool founder in the best way possible.

“Cheeto Puffs are the superior cheesy, crispy snack,” Nadeshot tweeted along with a video showing him uninstall the One Bite app. “I’ll still watch your pizza reviews though.”

It ended up being the perfect mic drop as Portnoy tried to get Nade to apologize for what he said about Cheez-Its, so the two founders would be cool again.

“Just take back what you said about Cheeze It’s and we’re cool,” he responded.

All in all, it’s a pretty harmless feud, but the Barstool founder did end up losing a user on his app, so there was some damage done.

Hopefully, the two will be able to get together, crack open a box of Cheez-Its, and set aside their differences.

TikTok star and singer Dixie D’Amelio has deleted the teaser for her upcoming song with rapper Wiz Khalifa after receiving overwhelming negative criticism from viewers. Her mother has also released a lengthy statement on the matter.

Dixie D’Amelio is a household name in the social media age; the older sister to Charli D’Amelio (TikTok’s most-followed creator), Dixie has carved her own path, most notably releasing her own original songs with such features as Lil Mosey and, most recently, Wiz Khalifa.

However, it doesn’t seem that online critics are too pleased with her music, as seen by the oodles of negative comments on the teaser for her upcoming song with Khalifa, which she initially posted to TikTok.

Many commenters brutally roasted the TikTok star’s lyrics and singing ability, with one writing, “Does she really think she’s a singer now?”

“God help you and your lyrics,” another wrote.

Dixie has since removed the teaser in wake of the criticism, taking to Twitter to vent about her frustration regarding the overwhelming negativity.

“I’m just trying to have fun,” Dixie wrote. “I love music and photoshoots. But I’m losing passion for everything now.”

“I literally can’t be excited about ANYTHING,” she continued.

Dixie’s mother, Heidi D’Amelio, has also spoken out on the issue in a lengthy Instagram stories post.

“To those sh***ing on people who are doing things they love and are getting attention for it — you should find something you love and go do it!” she said. “To anyone who takes the time to type hate towards someone who is having fun and doing what they love, please know you are a classic case of a weak person who is truly pathetic.”

It doesn’t look like Dixie’s nor her mother’s response to the issue is getting any sympathy from critics, though, who continue to levy negativity against the TikTok family royalty for their attitude toward the situation.

“When you’re rich yeah, it’s easy to get those ‘million of chances to do things they love,’” one critic replied.

“Anything you put on the Internet is going to get hate no matter what you do,” another chimed in. “She’s just going to have to get over that and keep her posts up and move forward.”

What’s your take on the situation? Do you think the hate toward Dixie’s creative pursuits is becoming too overwhelming? Or do you think Dixie’s mom has a point about the constant trolling? Let us know on Twitter at @DexertoTrending!
