Not even a New York slice can bring Michael Rapaport and Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy together.
Rapaport trolled his forever enemy for his popular pizza review web series when he visited Zazzy’s new Upper East Side pizzeria on Tuesday.
Portnoy’s videos generally involve him visiting local pizzerias, taking a single bite out of a slice, and rating it (he scored Zazzy’s West Village slice with a “7 or 8” back in March after taking a few bites).
Rapaport gave his own review of the uptown spot’s slice, suggested a new set of rules for pizza reviewers and had some spicy words for his former boss, occasional sex tape star Portnoy.
“If you’re going to do a pizza review, eat the whole slice! One bite is for manorexic bitches, who may or may not bleach their a–hole,” he said after rating Zazzy’s as “fantastic.”
Zazzy’s owner, Richie Romero, posted the clip to his Instagram and tagged Portnoy, but we’re told the Barstool boss didn’t know about it until Page Six brought it to his attention. And “he didn’t care” according to an insider.
This isn’t the first and probably won’t be the last time Rapaport takes a jab at Portnoy — or vice versa.
The bad blood between these two goes back to 2018 when Rapaport was fired as a podcast correspondent for the giant blog network for getting into a spat with Portnoy over his treatment of a “Stoolie,” or Barstool fan.
Barstool even started selling T-shirts with an image depicting the “Heat” actor as a clown with a herpes-related blemish on its chin, which led him to sue for defamation. The case was dismissed earlier this year, but Rapaport told the Post “the situation is ongoing” back in April.
“It has approximately 14 different claims and we’re going to trial. Let me tell you, they’re not good people,” he said.
Portnoy did not respond to our request for comment on the pizza diss. But, perhaps one day they’ll end their ongoing feud with a whole pie at Zazzy’s.
