Awkward exchange between Neil Mitchell and Milo Yiannopoulos over apparent ‘gotcha’ question

An interview with Milo Yiannopoulos has ended awkwardly over an apparent “gotcha” questioned directed at the outspoken political commentator from Neil Mitchell.

3AW Mornings spoke with Yiannopoulos on Monday, informing the British media personality he would not be banned by the Australian Government, despite a push “from the Left” to block his upcoming tour.

“That’s news to me, so I’m very happy to hear that,” Yiannopoulos said.

Neil Mitchell said that was the right call, despite whether or not you agreed with what he had to say.

Yiannopoulos is a fierce critic of Islam, saying it is fundamentally incompatible with western society.

Neil Mitchell asked Yiannopoulos what he thought of Australia’s decision to accept 12,000 Syrian refugees.

“I’m suggesting you should send them back immediately because the only consequence of that is going to be a drain on public services and your daughters raped,” he said.

Neil Mitchell pointed out that the majority of those refugees were in fact Christian.

Neil: “Does that make a difference?”

Milo: “Of course it does.

“We can do ‘gotcha’ questions if you want.”

An awkward exchange followed.
