We haven’t heard too much from Breitbart writer and chief internet troll Milo Yiannopoulos since he was exiled from Twitter, but in a new interview with the U.K.’s Channel 4, journalist Cathy Newman took him to task for his various hate-laden proclamations over the years.

“‘We’ll certainly let women onto the men’s internet a few times a year as long as you follow a few basic rules.’ You said that mass Muslim immigration must stop or people will know real rape culture. Are we supposed to just soak it up and take it as one big joke?” Newman asked, after reading his words back at him.

Yiannopoulos doubled-down on claims that his provocations were meant as jokes, while Newman pointed out that, jokes or not, his former boss Steve Bannon is now Donald Trump’s chief strategist. Yiannopoulos also made sure to take a second to add that the wage gap and campus-rape culture are “conspiracy theories.”

But in the most satisfying exchange of the interview, Yiannopoulos brushed Newman off, saying, “I care about facts. I don’t care about your feelings.” She countered, “but I thought you believed in a post-fact universe?” “Said who?” Yiannopoulos asked, before being told “that’s one of your quotes.”
