Leslie Jones' Troll Claims He Was Doing "God's Work"

It's official: One of the online trolls, Milo Yiannopoulos, who led the Twitter attacks on comedian and actress Leslie Jones, is just as awful as you might have imagined.

Unfortunately, Yiannopoulos is getting his 15 minutes of fame as he was recently brought on ABC's Nightline (presumably) to apologize — or prove that he's a halfway decent person. Instead, he reaffirmed that he was proud of his tweets aimed at Jones, regardless of the fact that he was kicked off of Twitter for them. Jones was also the victim of hacking when someone gained access to her person photos and website.

"Trolling is very important," Yiannopoulos said on Nightline."I like to think of myself as a virtuous troll, you know? I’m doing God’s work."
Wait — don't vomit yet. There's more!

He also thinks that all women should be the same, thin, size: "What's revolting is this idea now that you can tell women that they’ll be healthy at any size. It tells women that you can be fat and you can be unattractive and you’ll be happy anyway. That’s a lie."

He also believes that Lena Dunham and Amy Schumer are heading up a cult: "It is insisted upon us that we all pay obeisance to the cult of Lena Dunham and Amy Schumer that they put them on the cover of the magazines."

Yiannopoulos also has an interesting take on feminists: "I would rather a healthier, equitable arrangement that existed between the sexes rather than the sort of vindictive feminism that seems to exist now. Fewer than one in five women in America describe themselves as a feminist, because they see what I see."

He also said he wants to be let back on Twitter, so I figured this would be a good opportunity to lend some advice, from one internet user to another. In the event that you or someone you know is tempted by the ways of internet trolling because it is "God's work," I have created a list of alternative things to do instead that actually is "God's work."
