Self-described “comedian” Leslie Jones said provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos doesn’t “have a real talent” in a Sunday interview.
Jones addressed both the conservative firebrand, who mocked her for her performance in the 2016 “Ghostbusters” remake, as well as her apparent newfound resilience in the face of online ridicule in an interview with The New York Times.
“That was going to happen anyway,” said the Saturday Night Live actress, referring to Yiannopoulos’ resignation from Breitbart News and loss of his CPAC keynote speaker role in February. “That’s what happens when people who don’t have a real talent, they don’t last. When you take away the light from them, they will continue to be in the darkness and they will fade away.”
“I’m so past [nasty remarks on Twitter] now. If you didn’t know what it is, then that could bother you. But I know what it is — just insecure crazy people that happen to own a computer. You can’t get me.”
“We will see who has the lasting cultural impact — an unfunny, thin-skinned ‘comedian’ who only gets work because she is black and ugly and people feel sorry for her, or the most influential New York Times bestselling conservative activist of his generation” said Yiannopoulos to The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Jones received an Emmy nomination for best supporting actress in a comedy series in July. Yiannopoulos’ book “Dangerous,” released July 4, became a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestseller. The provocateur will embark on a “Troll Academy” tour this fall.
