‘It was nasty and I didn’t like it’: Bolt considers walking out on Milo Yiannopoulos

After acting as MC at two Milo Yiannopoulos events, Andrew Bolt says some of the things the far-right provocateur had to say were “terrible” and he considered walking out.

Speaking to Steve Price last night Bolt said he found Yiannopoulos to be a different person onstage and off.

“He’s got some good things to say about gender politics and free speech,” he said.

“I thought some of the rudeness, the vitriol, was nasty and I didn’t like it.

“He said Muslim asylum seekers were skilled at only a few things, including raping women.

“I thought those things were terrible, dreadful.”

“First I thought, do I walk out?” Bolt said.

But he said he decided to stay and go onstage to confront Yiannopoulos about his views.
