Professional Internet villain just had his ass handed to him, on a plate, as hundreds of people took to Twitter to share their disgust after his appearance on tonight’s Channel 4 News interview with Cathy Newman.
Milo Yiannopoulos the self-styled poster child of the conservative youth in America is finding out that he doesn’t have many supporters in the UK. Scores of people have taken to Twitter to troll the troll with his name becoming a trending tag on the social network after appearing on Channel 4.
Milo, who was a very vocal supporter of Donald Trump during his presidential campaign, has proved to be a divisive character whose thoughts on feminism among other hot topics have proved very unpopular.
Milo’s Twitter profile was first unverified and then suspended earlier this year, following a spat with Ghostbuster actor Leslie Jones.
Just watched some bloke called Milo Yiannopoulos on CH4 news. Quite possibly the most obnoxious moron on the planet. A new low for humaanity

Great journalism from @cathynewman in interview with Milo Yiannopoulos. Cathy's interview skills showed how Milo is an ignorant and deluded.

Milo Yiannopoulos is the type of guy you wouldn't mind drop kicking in the face…

Cathy Newman was generally praised for her handling of Milo during their interview after he told her that the modern version of feminism was “modern, ugly, spiteful & vindictive”.

Of course, some were very pleased that he found space on the Channel 4 show.
Hilarious to see a whole new audience triggered by Milo Yiannopoulos, the same morons who think Cathy Newman is a decent journalist! haha
