I was just about to write a ‘Milo overplays his hand (again)’ post…
When David Cole chimed in on Taki’s:
You see, it turns out there are a few improprieties regarding the money the self-proclaimed “dangerous faggot” raised for the “grant” program. As in, somewhere in the neighborhood of $350,000 seems to have vanished.
The Beast pointed out that Yiannopoulos “also faced a high court order in the U.K. for unpaid wages to workers for his startup blog ‘The Kernel’ in 2013.
Well, damn, if you can’t trust a contemptuous, publicity-seeking, sociopathic narcissist who indulges in every opportunity to publicly proclaim his love of “black dick,” who can you trust?
Milo’s Twitter made me giggle. So did his entrance to one of his campus speeches, being carried on a throne.
Very smart guy, obviously. Says a lot of the right things.
But regular readers know I was never on board 100 percent.
His latest column, about why the washing machine and the Pill were the two most sinister inventions in history, was multi-level stupid. It had this “last gasp” air to it I couldn’t put my finger on. At the time…
Some of the things on his rider are so outlandish (horse-oil hand lotion that’s banned in the U.S., four topless Abercrombie & Fitch models, four hookahs) that the requests could be impossible to fill — at least legally. But insiders say the rider is not a publicity stunt (not entirely, at least) as the intention is to work those requests into the film. Expect Yiannopoulos, perhaps, to throw a fit when his every demand isn’t met.
In his rider, Yiannopoulos also asks for Double Stuf Oreo cookies, a snow-cone machine, Tahitian vanilla candles and, of course, a full-length mirror.
