      @Philip DeFranco He talked about how much money the Talent was making but not how much money they make off the talent. There is major inequality in every industry between those who do the work and those who invest the capital. Finances in this dynamic are often a one-way mirror where the owners know how much they make and how much their talent makes, but the talent does not know how much money is being made off of them. You see this playing out in Major League baseball. Where is the transparency? I believe this lack of transparency has helped birth the gross inequality in the world, especially in the U.S.A. I would hope you could mention transparency in future similar topics. Sorry for the essay Phil.

      Dave Portnoy is a smart and successful businessman. He took a risk taking on Call Her Daddy but it was a calculated risk and he was correct in his assessment of what could happen with the show. The problem is that the girls accepted the contract that signed over the IP during the length of the contract and that there were no clauses included that would include renegotiations should the show become overwhelmingly successful. TL;DR - the girls were ill-advised signing the initial contract and are now in serious legal trouble with Barstool Sports. I would sincerely doubt that Portnoy's legal team would have written the initial contract with any "easy outs" for CHD's legal team to wriggle out from underneath. Oh and Philip, I think that you are seeing things through the lens of your own experience as a content creator and having been through a similar battle. However, just because you may be correct in your assessment of the creators being able to become independent successfully due to their popularity does not somehow invalidate a contract.

    Alex took the deal. Sofia didn’t. The two of them were not unhappy with the deal, only Sofia was. She wanted more, then more, then more... Alex was ready to do the deal the first time it was given to them. Sofia was the spoiled rich girl, Alex was grateful and smart.

    If you feel like you are worth more! Don’t except less. Glad they asked for more! Unfortunate though that they couldn’t come to an agreement that they both were happy with to keep their friendship intact.

    I think its a reflection of people being tired of capitalism and corporations. However often times influencers think they can be more successful on their own and end up crashing and burning. Corporations play it safe, they are in it for the money.

    I keep thinking about that trans woman signing with L'Oreal and them having to let them go for being extremely unprofessional and being social justice warrior. I'm not sure it's always about the creator. It only is if they truly have the fanbase, money and power to make those kinds of moves. For L'Oreal, they didn't want a loose cannon and can't alienate their customers with drama and the trans person was relatively unknown so was a fool for making such a move. And here, while it makes sense they negotiated the deal, likely it should have been 1 step up for this first move. Next move another step up. And stay united. So dumb moves and these women's part.

    You know when they appeared early on The fighter and the Kid podcast these girls discussed have an agreement between each other that they would not get boyfriends because it would mess with their dynamic on air and living together etc. Then Sophia gets a boyfriend who pushes her to go this way, wanting 50% of an impossible deal while she does not do 50% of the work and boom the dream falls to ruins.

    Totally respect your research and effort put in to this video. On the topic of their actual content, can people confirm they’ve shared some sexist and misogynistic views? I was under the assumption that it was a sex positive and empowering podcast by how highly people talked about it, but after seeing some clips I feel it seems pretty problematic and I get the vibe that they sort of back peddle on the ideals of feminism and womens empowerment

    Greedy privileged creators. Just see the contract out, with the knowledge that Barstool has helped you to create a huge following. Ride the wave on your contract and then do your thing. You are being paid a fortune for what is essential trashy content (I’ve only listened to 5 minutes, I couldn’t stand anymore). Thank your lucky stars that America is this basic, that it allows you this career.

    Seems pretty cut and dry. They both benefited from each other. The contract is in place, they should honor it or renogiate within reason. Sounds like they were offered an incredible deal but turned it down.

    I don’t believe Sofia whatsoever. Everything Dave said before either girl spoke our 100% coincided with what Alex said and it’s always been obvious that Alex was the natural lead on the show. I watched Alex wayyy back when she was attempting to be a vlogger and her passion for the industry was obvious. Sofia was in it only for the money, didn’t want to edit or contribute to the production of the show, etc. and was offered an unbelievable deal with Barstool, but instead, she decided to blindly follow “suitman”, the same guy who royally £ucked her career! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ #daddygang #weloveasinglefather

    Barstool, sue them for all the got!!!! They came in and used your name and blew up and now want to blow off the contract and make more money alone? Sorry girls thats not how contracts work. Big companies like barstool sign people KNOWING they will not only help those they sign but also make a profit back once they do rise in fame. Thats why they sign you in the first place. Mutual benefit. Yall greedy asf for both getting 500k more or less for the year and still wanting to break the contract/sue for more. You deserve to get sued lmao. Shouldnt have signed a contract in the first place. You dont get to use people for their benefits and then screw them over when its time to give back LMAO. FOH.

    Contracts aren't just something you can sign to take advantage of a company and then ignore once you have an audience.

    These girls couldn't make it on their own. They signed a contract that put millions behind their podcast. It's not rocket science. The podcast could have flopped and Barstool would still have to pay that money. Ride out the contract and then do your thing.

    When you sign a contract it’s binding...they were offered more money, a shorter time and their IP and it wasn’t enough. Sounds like greed is getting the best of them.

    Wow never heard of such a petty money grabbing move as that of those “Call her Daddy” women. Did you ever think of the repercussions of your actions? If people can just leave their contracts and demand ridiculous amounts of money at anytime then companies are NOT going to want to take the risks involved to make people’s shows like this big anymore. This is not good for any creator. Now if you want to move on and continue the show yourself after the contract is up so you can make more money then that’s fine! But don’t try to wormtail your way out of a contract because you had more success than you thought you would have! If the company is treating you right and no one knew the show would make this much money then deal with it and stay until your contract is up! Or negotiate peacefully. But this kind of behavior screws over everyone in the industry.
