ABC Reporter Slams ‘Revolting’ Breitbart Troll Yiannopoulos Directly to His Face: ‘You’re an Idiot’ (Video)

The Internet is an amazing innovation, but it can also amplify a very brutal and ugly world. It’s a place where people go to say things, often to complete strangers, that are absolutely reprehensible and things they’d never have the courage to say in person. Instead, these “trolls” hide behind keyboards harassing, belittling, bullying and sometimes outright threatening people who’ve they’ve never even met and will likely never meet.

As someone who covers politics, I am definitely no stranger to trolls.

However, not all Internet trolls are created equal. In fact, some of these vile people are quite infamous.

For example, Breitbart’s tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos, a bottom-feeding parasite who was recently banned from Twitter after it was determined that he encouraged his followers to harass Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones.

Well, Yiannopoulos was absolutely crushed by ABC News’ Terry Moran during an interview where the Nightline reporter mocked the immaturity of one of Bretibart’s top employees.

“If Leslie Jones were right here, would you say, ‘You look like a dude’?” Moran asked.

“Yeah, probably,” Yiannopoulos replied.

“You would say that to her,” Moran said.

“I probably would,” Yiannopoulos stated.

“Then you’re an idiot,” Moran replied.

Yiannopoulos then tried to claim that he’s not responsible for what his “fans” do, only what he does personally.

“Does Justin Bieber have an obligation to his fans?” he asked Moran. “I’m sorry for being popular. But I am not responsible for what 350,000 people on the Internet say. I’m responsible for what I say.”

Except, that’s not entirely true. You can’t go around encouraging people to harass others on social media. While Yiannopoulos and his supporters have claimed that Twitter is violating his “freedom of speech,” sites like Facebook and Twitter do not have to abide by any sort of Constitutional laws pertaining to freedom of speech. These are companies that have set their own guidelines for behavior and can suspend anyone from operating on their sites if they so choose.

Moran then hammered Yiannopoulos for his disgusting sexism and overall attitude toward women.

“You’re going to go after somebody’s body to denigrate their ideas? What grade are you in?” Moran asked. “Are you a 13-year-old boy? Because somebody doesn’t have a weight that you think is proper? That’s revolting.”

“I’ll tell you what’s revolting,” Yiannopoulos replied. “What’s revolting is the body positivity movement. What’s revolting is this idea now that you can tell women that they’ll be healthy at any size.”

I’m sorry, but I find it hard to take any guy who still frosts his hair seriously. Before Yiannopoulos talks about anyone’s looks, he might want to update his style from the rejected Backstreet Boys backup dancer that he currently seems to be sporting. Even when that look was “in” — it really wasn’t.

Keep in mind, as reprehensible as Yiannopoulos is, he’s a bit of a “hero” among millions of so-called “Christian conservatives.” You know, the type of people who claim to love Jesus Christ, then support a pile of trash who openly brags about his enjoyment of harassing and belittling people he doesn’t know.

The interview is definitely worth taking a few minutes to watch just so you can fully grasp what kind of lowlife Yiannopoulos is. It’s remarkably enjoyable watching ABC’s Terry Moran call out his disgusting behavior directly to his face.

    This is so funny. First, Hillary’s supporters start acting like McCarthyites in their new found post-detante anti-Russian zeal. Now this attack on a gay guy who has broken ranks. From the reporting in this article, Milo sounds like a much more articulate person than CNN’s name calling apparatchik. Maybe a polar shift is occurring on some positions in this year’s presidential election. Its happened before. Republicans used to be the progressive party back in Lincoln’s time.

    • Matthew Purnell

      Have you not seen the type of empty bitchy nonsense this Milo idiot spouts? The backlash is against his inane, shallow mean-spiritedness… nothing to do with him being gay. ‘Breaking ranks’? Put away the tin foil, he’s a Breitbart editor for Christ’s sake.

      • strayaway

        “Bitchy”, is that how you describe gays? Is that sort of like “lazy” to describe blacks? Here is an incendiary Milo quote of the sort that CNN apparatchiks can’t handle except with caveman remarks like “You’re an idiot” in this case confusing reporting with editorializing. CNN is sinking to a new and obvious low. Two days ago, it blurred out the Trump t-shirt on a guy who had saved a child’s life.

        “I’m not talking about Islamists. I’m not talking about terrorists. I’m not talking about radical Islam. I’m talking about mainstream Muslim culture. There are eleven Muslim countries in which I could be killed for being a homosexual. The state penalty is death. One hundred million people live in country where the penalty for homosexuality is death. This is not radical Islam. This is mainstream Muslim society. Look what’s happening in Sweden. Look what’s happening anywhere in Germany, anywhere there are large influxes of a Muslim population. Things don’t end well for women and gays. The left has got to make a decision. Either they want female emancipation and it wants gay rights or it wants Islam. It’s got to pick.”

        He’s doing God’s work, doesn’t quite believe in “lesbianism” and believes he has been endowed with the right to pass judgement on women’s appearance and beliefs. His immaturity and narcissism make me physically uncomfortable.

      • strayaway

        Passing judgement on appearance is also found in this article, “I find it hard to take any guy who still frosts his hair seriously. Before Yiannopoulos talks about anyone’s looks, he might want to update his style from the rejected Backstreet Boys backup dancer that he currently seems to be sporting. Even when that look was “in” — it really wasn’t.” How did the Catholic Church get into this?

      • exit 7

        In the video it is reported that he is a gay Catholic. You can go ahead and defend him. He is not a nice person. He is mean for the sport of it. He does not deserve your support. Do I want to hit him or call him names? No. Do I wish he would keep his hate to himself? YES. A snide hair remark is a far cry from what he has done and said.

      • strayaway

        And you must be the Pope making ex cathedra remarks. Would you expand on how Milo’s “immaturity and narcissism make(s you) physically uncomfortable?” Glad though that you rise above SLP and fel121’s violent comments. Note: They are still around if Hillary’s version of the Holy Inquisition gets new life. I don’t think Milo is a “nice” person either but at least he doesn’t have a history of bombing Libyans and Syrians.

        When I watched the video, I was physically uncomfortable.

        Bitchy is as bitchy does. This man is nothing but bitchy.

      • Matthew Purnell

        Look how far you went with a single word – leaping and bounding to all sorts of conclusions! No I am not a homophobe, and his sexuality has nothing to do with this discussion (except that he has tried to pull that victim card so often). “Bitchy” describes the shallow and nasty nonsense this idiot throws around. He’s such an abusive little arse, he got banned from Twitter..!

  • fel121

    Wouldnt you love it if he just punched this faggot in his fvcking face

    • SLP

      His sexual orientation has nothing to do with his vicious opinions of others. He’s simply an idiot troll who pretends to have nothing to do with how others take his vitriol and spread it around.

    I can’t watch this whole thing. What an ass. Someone needs to put this guy down with a fist.

  • tkgold

    Why did the author have to throw in an insult about Yiannopoulos’s frosted hair? I agree with everything else he criticized but the image comment was unnecessary.

  • pinballsdoll

    he has an ugly soul
