Is John Cusack a White Sox or Cubs fan?
On Sunday, October 10, 2021, John Cusack attended a White Sox game in Chicago, Illinois.
Barstool Sports employee, Dave Williams, who goes by White Sox Dave, confronted Cusack outside of the Guaranteed Rate Field.
He accused Cusack of pledging allegiance to whichever Chicago team was doing better at the time, switching between the Cubs and the White Sox.
Cusack responded by saying he’s a fan of both teams, and grew up going to both ballparks.

The two “agree to disagree.”
Cusack has reportedly been seen wearing both Cubs and White Sox gear, and has even tweeted about the ordeal in the past.
