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.
