Breadouw hosts a comedy podcast called Punch Up the Jam where she reviews, rewrites, and remixes hit songs with her friend and fellow comedian, Demi Adejuyigbe. 
Dispute with Barstool Sports
Bredouw said she asked Barstool Sports for credit, but was ignored. She then filed a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown, and Twitter took down the video immediately.
They initially offered her a full credit on the video. She didn't respond. Then, they offered her a $50 gift card to, of all places, the Barstool Sports online store. Bredouw ignored the emails, joking it was difficult to resist the appeal of merchandise from a "historically racist and sexist company." 
Bredouw began to receive hundreds of messages from Barstool Sports representatives across Instagram, email and Twitter to check the company's messages. 
"The DMs went to my 'other' folder and I have gotten too many messages since to be able to see them anymore," she told Mashable. In these messages, Barstool Sports offered to promote Bredouw's podcast, Punch Up the Jam. The offer was then upped to $2,000 by the website's general counsel, Mark Marin. 
"Never once has a person, much less a company tried to bribe me to undo my truthful claim," Bredouw said. "Never once has a person, much less a company messaged me from multiple accounts, emailed to multiple emails, messaged to multiple accounts. I have never been harassed like this for removing my own damn video." 
When asked for comment by Mashable, Twitter, pointed to its copyright policy, which states multiple copyright strikes can result in one's account being suspended. Barstool Sports has 1.47 million Twitter followers. Berdouw said she is "disappointed, but not surprised" by Twitter's response to the dispute. She intends to seek legal advice. 
"Where Barstool went wrong is that when she refused to respond and it became clear she had no intention of speaking with us we should have ended it," Barstool's founder, Dave Portnoy, told Business Insider in an email. "Unfortunately Barstool Sports has idiots in our company much like many other companies and those idiots acted like idiots. I regret our lawyer offering a 50 dollar gift card to our store not because it's illegal in any manner but it's just so moronic and makes us look like assholes. That's why lawyers should not be on social media."  
Portnoy also said Barstool filed a counterclaim to avoid Twitter shutting down the site's account, which he said happens after six claims are filed against it. He said as far as he knew, the video was removed. 
"Rightly or wrongly it puts the person who filed the DCMA in a bad spot to legally defend they own it. We have the opportunity to prove we didn't intentionally steal it," he wrote. "It's a ton of work and effort over a very minor thing."
