Barstool Sports Just Called Mark Zuckerberg ‘A Jew’…For Fun!

Any American sports news junkie worth their salt has visited BarstoolSports. They're on top of a lot of the salacious stories other blogs won't touch, plus they churn out posts with #SwEeTbOoBz almost hourly, giving you a safe-for-work option for when you're unable to watch that Brazzers premium account you've wisely signed up for. Sports aren't everything, right?
The site's editorial slant has been called a lot of things, but "defiantly politically incorrect" sufficiently sums it up. They are the anti-Deadspin, which is fine, because not everyone wants to have their myopic worldview challenged on a regular basis. Sometimes you just want to read something that speaks to the frustrated 18-year-old pledge inside your head. Sometimes you just want to hear Mark Zuckerberg called "a Jew."
"Barstool Nate" just posted an article about Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's appearance at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where he spoke about the Oculus Rift and a new 360 degree camera Samsung has developed. This was the headline...
"Well We’re Officially In The Future And a Jew Named Mark Zuckerberg Is Our Leader."
In fairness, the joke Barstool Nate was (hopefully) trying to make was that there are paranoid anti-semitic conspiracy theorists out there who would see Zuckerberg walking around a room with a bunch of people in virtual reality headsets and think, "Here we go, this is the Jewish-lead world takeover we've been predicting." Let's assume he was being tongue-in-cheek by using the word "Jew" to describe Mark Zuckerberg -- who is Jewish.
