BARSTOOL Sports founder Dave Portnoy has been suspended from Twitter for violating the platform's rules, just as fans make the hashtag "FreePortnoy" trend.
Portnoy, who goes by the username @stoolpresidente on Twitter, is missing from the site.
"Account suspended. Twitter suspends accounts which violate the Twitter Rules," reads the message on his page.
On his Instagram story, Portnoy shared a photo of himself with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
"#freeportnoy @jack" read his caption.

"#FreePortnoy until it’s backwards," wrote Barstool Colorado while sharing a screenshot of Portnoy's suspended account.
Producer Josiah Johnson posted a photo of the film Casino before someone gets killed in reference to Portnoy's suspension.
"How Twitter did Portnoy," he wrote.
