Name Her Daddy Feud

The Name Her Daddy drama firstly of the summer time was all there was to give attention to earlier than the Black Lives Matter motion took over the media. Individuals who had by no means listened to the podcast earlier than had been abruptly conversant in the large feud happening with the intercourse constructive podcast. Lengthy story brief, Alexandra Cooper and Sofia Franklyn created a lude, considerably poisonousbut entertaining podcast protecting “locker room speak for girls.” It was immediately picked up by Barstool in 2018 and have become one of many high Apple podcasts.

The present has been happening since 2018 and every thing appeared superb to listeners till abruptly in April episodes weren’t being launched on their common Wednesday midnight drop time. A couple of weeks glided by and episodes weren’t being launched in any respect. The Name Her Daddy Instagram was releasing cryptic messages about how they couldn’t legally talk about what was taking place, so everybody knew some critical drama was taking place


Lastly Dave Portnoy, head of Barstool, launched his facet of the story in a podcast episode beneath the Name Her Daddy channel. In his story, he informed how Cooper had executed a majority of the work for the podcast, modifying it, and requested for a elevate a 12 months into their preliminary contract. He gave her a elevatehowever ultimately gave each ladies raises. Then he defined how each Franklyn and Cooper acquired grasping and had been demanding ludacris new contracts and he was not having it. He additionally stated how there was speak from the women about leaving Barstool and taking their podcast elsewhere, however Barstool owned their IP. Portnoy claimed this was all sparked by Franklyn’s boyfriend, an government at HBO Sports activities, Peter Nelson. He ended it saying he made one final ditch effort, supplied them a brand new contract that included the IP of their present, and now the ball was of their court docket

After the Portnoy episode of Name Her Daddy was dropped, Sofia made an Instagram story, the place she briefly defined how negotiations had been taking place, her greatest buddy Alex had damaged her belief and she or he thanked her followers. She didn’t actually give “The Daddy Gang” loads to work with. 

Then Alex informed her facet of the story. In a weak 34 minute YouTube video, she particulars what occurred with their present and finally how she misplaced her greatest buddy and co-host, Sofia. It was far more informative then the 2 minute story Sofia had executed

Alex had saved the day, she was a hero. Though it was the top of an period for the 2 co-hosts, followers had been able to proceed with a solo act.

Aftermath for Sofia

Sofia obtained a lot of hate and cyber bullying. Individuals attacked her for letting a person get in the best way of her friendship and enterprise, and blamed her for the break up of the present. And that had successfully silenced her. Till now. 

On Wednesday, October seventh, Sofia posted a narrative and Instagram submit for the very first time in months, saying that she had made her personal podcast. In true Sofia style, she forgot to really add a swipe up hyperlink in her story, however shortly mounted it, accurately attaching the hyperlink to her new podcast, Sofia With an F. 

She virtually instantly was hit with backlash on Instagram, with individuals commenting to remind her that they’d “canceled her,” and that her present could be horrible

Loyal followers tried to name off the bullying. Others stated they might hearken to each Name Her Daddy and Sofia’s new present, as in the event that they didn’t need to decide sides between their two palsNo matter “whose facet” followers had been on, virtually everybody was fast to note that Franklyn had introduced her new podcast on Wednesday, a sacred day for the Daddy Gang, as these are the times CHD episodes are launched. Intentional? You be the choose

Sofia With An F

With solely a one minute trailer up, followers had been anxiously awaiting her first full episode, and on Friday we lastly acquired to listen to what we’ve all been lacking. Franklyn’s first episode, entitled, “Sloot: A Brief Autobiography,” was a 43 minute episode that…properly, was type of everywherehowever was a valiant effort however

Totally embracing the slander that has been stated about her, she gave us a have a look at what has been happening along with her for the previous 5 months. Whereas it’s not her fashion to get into the nitty gritty of every thing, Franklyn provides us a brief run down on her facet of the story by way of Name Her Daddy. She immediately addresses Alex, calling her out as a nasty buddy and enterprise companion. In Franklyn’s spilling of the tea portion, she additionally addresses rumors about her boyfriend making her enterprise choices on her behalf. She talks about how her melancholy and social nervousness have been affected, in addition to how her public picture has been tarnished. The episode then barely derails right into a rant concerning the pressures girls face as they become older, to get married and have kids. She throws in a number of tales about her “glory days” as a misbehaving teenager rising up in Utah. It might not have been probably the most wonderful, put collectively episode, however Franklyn is clearly critical about her new present. She created her personal firm, Sloot Media, and even has a number of the identical sponsors as Name Her Daddy. 

A Second Likelihood

Followers are congratulating Sofia for choosing herself again up.

The episode has even made some followers query their determination to proceed to help Cooper and the Name Her Daddy podcast. 

After allthere may be nonetheless some hate.

On the finish of the day, Cooper and Franklyn each appear to be profitable enterprise girls. They created a robust fan base collectively that has fortunately continued to help them each of their separate endeavors.

And these followers are intense. Each hosts have individually acknowledged that they’ve nervousness due to the eye that has come from the present
