What is the link to the offensive content so I can see if there is any report button?

There's really no one to report the content to other than the website owner's themselves, if they provide a contact link, since they are hosting their own WordPress blog on their own domain. If they were breaking any laws in their native country, you could report them to their local authorities and their web hosting company (if known,) but assuming they're protected under free speech laws like the United States, you're out of luck. That's how nutjobs like Fred Phelps are walking free and annoying everyone equally...

Anyway, you can generally find out who or at least what legal entity owns a domain name by looking it up in a domain name registrar like Network Solutions (http://www.nsi.com) or GoDaddy.com. In this case, here's the domain name registration for that domain name --

http://www.networksolutions.com/whois-search/barstoolsports.com

As you can see, the domain name is registered in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal.

"Joke's on you blind people"? "You can't even read this"? LOL! I'm blind in my left eye and mostly blind in my right, and I could still read that. Some people are just awful.

Yes I have alot of blind friends who are outraged with this they have found out his twitter name and they are telling him what they think of him and another thing he should know if you are using speech software you need to know more than a sighted computer user and that means blind people are more intelligent than him but as far as I and my friends are concerned a fish has more of a brain than he does

There is nothing you can really do. i agree it is not right, but your hands are kinda tied. you could report the article to the web master and plead he remove it, however it is up to him to remove it.

I think the person who posted that is the webmaster because of his twitter name is part of the web address I think that on those sort of sites there should be a report button because being blind myself I was very angry reading this.

Again, there's no one to report it to. Unfortunately, being a jerk isn't illegal.
