Episode 173: A Scandal at Vice (with Mitchell Jackson)
Revisiting Fat Feminist-gate.
This week on Blocked and Reported, Jesse is off “slaying the spire” (gross) so Katie interviews the publicist Mitchell Jackson, formerly known as the writer Mitchell Sunderland. Mitchell was famously fired from Vice in 2017 after his emails to then-Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos were leaked to BuzzFeed, and for the first time ever, Mitchell tells his side of this story. Plus, Mitchell’s unique upbringing in a Florida puppy dynsaty, how he helped rehab the infamous influencer Caroline Calloway, and what to do—and what not to do—when facing cancelation.
