“Saturday Night Live’s” Leslie Jones is taking on Simon & Schuster over giving her banned Twitter foe Milo Yiannopoulos a lucrative book deal.

The publisher tweeted out a statement a few days ago defending its subsidiary Threshold Books’ contract with the Breitbart editor, reported to be worth $250,000. Jones wasn’t having any of the publishing house’s explanation.

“Yea but you still help them spread their hate to even more people,” she replied on Monday.

Here’s the back and forth, with Simon & Schuster’s statement below:

A few hours after her reply to Simon & Schuster, Jones tweeted out the following:

She had been getting into it with other Twitter members in the interim.

As for Yiannopoulos, the outspoken, gay British writer and favorite of the alt-right describes himself as “the most fabulous supervillain on the internet.” Back in July, he was permanently booted from Twitter after encouraging his followers to send nasty messages to the “Ghostbusters” star, and for trolling the comedic actress himself.

Not only did Jones receive a ton of torment from Yiannopoulous supporters, nude photos of the “SNL” actress were hacked and leaked.

Yiannopoulos’ “Dangerous” is due out March 14.
