Milo Yiannopoulos’s appearance on Real Time With Bill Maher has been mired in controversy since it was announced earlier this week, so much so that one of the show’s scheduled guests chose to cancel his appearance due to Yiannopoulos’s presence. In the end, a panel consisting of Yiannopoulos, Larry Wilmore, Malcolm Nance, and former Rep. Jack Kingston discussed everything from the LGBTQ community to the current political climate, and let’s just say Wilmore didn’t mince his words when expressing his abhorrence for the noted alt-right troll.
“You can go fuck yourself, alright? If your argument is that these people are stupid, you didn’t hear a word this man [Nance] said earlier this segment,” Wilmore said. “Because he can talk circles around your pathetic, douchey little ass from England, alright?” Wilmore also defended SNL cast member Leslie Jones, who Yiannopoulos harshly attacked earlier in the show. (Last summer, he also encouraged his Twitter followers to tweet her racist abuse, which eventually culminated in Yiannopoulos getting permanently banned from the platform.) “And one last thing: Leslie Jones is not ‘barely literate.’ Go fuck yourself again for that one, okay,” Wilmore continued. “She is a very thoughtful person, and very friendly.” Round two coming soon?
