Owen Jones has walked out of a Sky News interview after a heated discussion over the LGBT hate crimes in Orlando.
The outspoken Jones was disgusted after presenter Mark Longhurst told him people should “delineate” between Islamist terror and homophobia after the attack which killed 50 at gay Florida nightclub Pulse.
Jones has gained a lot of support for his actions on social media, with most people saying they would have done the same thing. Matt Lucas praised the young writer along with MP Caroline Flint and John Nicolson.
Respect to @OwenJones84 – I shared his incredulity on watching the Sky clip but doubt I would have had his articulacy or boldness.
