Think of the process of honing your skills. These experiences make you more prepared for the next. You would be annoyed if you didn't have any feedback at all. You can choose if you want to participate in a presentation style interview but I don't blame the company for wanting to see what you're all about. I just did an interview like that and my goal was to engage the panel and not just read the slides. (P.s. my interview was great but I didn't get the role)

Jerks are everywhere and it sounds like you ran into one today. I'm sorry they shirked off your presentation, but you can't win them all. It seems like you have a great presentation according to the positive feedback from other interviewers. Chalk this one up and keep moving forward.

Very rude of him. Hope life compensates you with good karma, though!

Was your presentation TED Talk worthy?

Haha. TED talks, oof.

What company is this so I know not to apply?

Although I am extremely vengeful as a person I can’t do that as a friend referred me and I don’t want to damage his reputation.
