In 2020, Penn National Gaming purchased a 36% stake in Barstool Sports from the founders for $163 million, including $135 million in cash and $28 million in Penn non-voting convertible preferred stock. After the sale, Chernin Group retains a 36% stake in the company, while Portnoy continues to run the site and has creative control over the content.

His writing was well received by young men, and the publication later became a mainstay of bro culture. He was known for his outspoken and brash attitude, and he faced criticism over blog posts and derogatory comments towards women and others.

Portnoy has twice been detained in NFL-related incidents: first on May 12, 2015, when he was arrested by New York City police after he and three Barstool employees handcuffed one another on the floor of NFL headquarters to protest Deflategate,and again in 2019 when he was placed in a holding cell at Mercedes-Benz Stadium for a portion of Super Bowl LIII.

The National Labor Relations Board investigated Portnoy in 2019 for posts on Twitter on charges that he illegally threatened to fire his workers if they unionized. That December, Portnoy reached an informal settlement with the Board, which required him to delete his threatening tweets and remove any potential anti-union material created by Barstool Sports. The settlement also noted that the Twitter account originally encouraging employees to unionize was actually owned by Barstool in an attempt to out labor organizers.

In November 2021, allegations surfaced that Portnoy had behaved aggressively during sexual encounters with several women, choking and filming them without consent. Penn National Gaming, a significant owner of Barstool, saw their stock fall by over 15% as a result of the claims.Portnoy denied the allegations in several videos posted online.
