Nantucket Magazine recently had a cover story featuring Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy, but is now apologizing for it after facing backlash from readers.
Publisher Bruce Percelay and editor Robert Cocuzzo posted to the official Facebook page that they had “heard from various members of our community who vehemently object” to the magazine’s May cover story. The story was focused on Portnoy’s efforts to raise money for small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, many readers have expressed disappointment in the comments over the Swampscott native’s history of “offensive remarks and actions.”
