(Bloomberg) — Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez chided Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy for a series of tweets that several legal experts say violate federal labor law.

“If you’re a boss tweeting firing threats to employees trying to unionize, you are likely breaking the law & can be sued, in your words, ‘on the spot,’” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.

The article goes on to state the following:

Portnoy then tweeted back, “Hey @aoc welcome to the thunder dome. Debate me.” Barstool, which has built its audience on its outrageous, often juvenile sports coverage, promptly collected the two tweets under the headline, “AOC vs. Dave ‘The Union Crusher’ Portnoy, We Are Officially Living in Bizarro World.”

Portnoy is listed on Barstool’s website as founder and chief of content and has previously made a show of firing employees. His earlier tweets promised to crush organizing activity and fire any employees who spoke with a lawyer or a journalist about forming a union at the site.
