Milo Yiannopoulos is a semi-retired right-wing (possibly alt-right) edgelord and troll who managed to get himself banned from most online platforms for being extremely unpleasant.

Why he is a troll[edit | edit source]

Milo is a self-proclaimed "provocateur" (Read "troll"). The term "provocateur", which is used by nobody except Milo, means someone who likes to provoke which is identical to the purpose of trolling or, more precisely, baiting. Basically, he does not hide the fact that he is a troll, but he uses a synonym to describe himself.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Milo Yiannopoulos/Hanrahan is a 36 years old Greek, Caucasian, Jewish and former homosexual man who currently lives in Florida and previously lived in the United Kingdoms.

He was formerly married to a person of color called John McKinley Campbell, it is unknown what caused them to break up.

Milo's opinions[edit | edit source]

All of the notable opinions from Milo Yiannopoulos are available here, most of which are political in nature.

His opinion on LGBTQ+ issue[edit | edit source]

Milo is trans-exclusionary and made many hateful comments toward non-binary people.

Although he may be homosexual himself, he likes to use homophobic slurs for either shock value or edgy humor. For instance, he named one of his tours The Dangerous Faggot Tour just for the sake of it.

Some of his comments support homophobic rhetoric which suggests he is self-loathing, as well as a full-blown homophobe :

You don't see me disputing the Church's teachings on homosexuality...I wouldn't dream of demanding that the Church throw away her hard truths just to lie to me in hopes I’ll feel better about myself,
~ Milo Yiannopoulos



It is a lifestyle choice guaranteed to bring [gay people] pain and unhappiness.
~ Milo Yiannopoulos



To not help his case at all, he participated in the straight pride parade which was a troll parade made for the sake of mocking the LGBTQ+ and social justice activists.

His opinion on the alt-right[edit | edit source]

In an interview with Dave Rubin in 2016, he identified as alt-lite, but distanced himself from white nationalism. In his 2017 book Dangerous, he stated that he had numerous different ideologies in the past, but expressed interest in them in order to enrage people.

Milo has contacted alt-right figures such as Curtis Yarvin, weev, and American Renaissance editors, receiving tips from some of them for his Breitbart articles on the alt-right. Andrew Anglin, the founder of The Daily Stormer rejected his articles, writing their own version of the alt-right as well as declaring a 'Holy War' against him, calling on their readers to approach him at his shows.

It has to be noted that Milo secretly did not like them according to his own words. Milo apparently dislikes parts of the alt-right and hates Richard Spencer whom he claims allegedly ruined his life.

In March 2016, he sang America the Beautiful at a bar while alt-right figures such as Richard Spencer followed him inside and cheered him on with Nazi salutes which caused the whole group to be kicked out. He claims that he did not see them, citing his near-sightedness.

I have ridiculously bad eyesight, but I have learned to live with an impressionistic view. Life is a Monet painting. I wander around enjoying myopia.
~ Milo Yiannopoulos




It can be safe to assume he was well-liked by the alt-right initially, but they would hate each other later down the line (As noted under the Doxxing section). In 2017, Richard Spencer, the most influential alt-right leader, stated that he did not like Milo because he took the term alt-right, interpreted it in another way and made it mainstream.[1]

His opinion on Feminism[edit | edit source]

Unsurprisingly, he hates feminism. In fact, he hates feminism so much that he decided to support Gamergate temporarily (Which is ironic since he hates gamers) just to harass the cast of Ghostbusters.

It is not very uncommon for him to make anti-feminism takes.

His opinion on religion[edit | edit source]

Milo has many controversial opinions on Islam. He believes everyone who is a part of Islam is a radicalized terrorist.

Currently, he has no strong feelings toward any other religion, besides Islam.

Controversies[edit | edit source]

Milo Yiannopoulos has had many controversies in his life due to his involvement with the alt-right, Gamergate and the fact that he loves to harass people, but not just that, he managed to get banned from as many places as humanly possible.

Known bans[edit | edit source]

  • Milo was banned from Australia.
  • Milo was banned from Twitter on the 20th of July 2016 for sending a lynch mob against Leslie Jones for participating in the reboot of Ghostbusters, calling her a man and saying that his boyfriend looked hotter than her.
  • Milo was forced to resign from Breitbart since February 2017 following the Ephebophilia allegations on him that were spread online due to his own stupid comments about how 13 years old could consent to adults in the United Kingdoms and is, therefore, fine for adults to be with teenagers. When the allegations started to spread, Milo tried to double down by saying his comments were the result of child abuse and he wanted to cope with it. Later that year, Then-Breitbart CEO Steve Bannon condemned him after he was accused of flirting with alt-right figures. His funding from the Mercer family was pulled as well.
  • Milo was banned from Patreon in 2018, the day just after he created his account, due to alleged ties with the Proud Boys.
  • Milo was banned a second time from entering Australia in March of 2019 for his online comments demeaning the deaths of the Muslims killed during the Christchurch mass shooting in New Zealand.
  • Milo was caught in the waves of bans on Facebook and Instagram during May 2019.
  • Milo was banned from attending a Furry convention known as Midwest FurFest in September of 2019 following complaints from the attendees. The explanation for the ban which was "hate is not welcome there" enraged a portion of the Furry fandom that identified as "Right-leaning". Nevertheless, Milo went there anyway with his personal army to annoy the attendees.

Scams[edit | edit source]

Milo Yiannopoulos is notorious for starting a fundraiser, but cancelling it after spending 1/5 of the money he received. In January 2016, he intended to participate in a telethon to raise money for scholarships for women and minorities, but took some of the money away.

Fun fact: Another fundraiser he created was for Take Heart India in 2010 and back then he did deliver all the money he accumulated on the donations which shows how much he changed.

Doxxing[edit | edit source]

Milo doxxed one of Richard Spencer's friends, Josh Dietz (Pseudonym: Josh Neal) more precisely, because, apparently, the politics of Yiannopoulos are incompatible with the politics of Spencer (They mutually hate each other and Spencer had allegedly helped in ruining Milo's life).

In addition to the dox above, Milo published a video of Richard Spencer spouting antisemitic rhetoric. Many anti-fascist websites such as Right Wing Watch have reported on this incident and the dox spread further.

It is unknown what exactly was inside the dox itself, but Milo Yiannopoulos revealed the real name of Josh (Which is Josh Neil Dietz), revealed where he works, where he used to work, his hobbies and where he lives at. This put him in danger of getting unwanted visitors, both anti-fascists and opposing alt-right ideologues could come to his house. While the anti-fascists would likely commit arson, the members of the alt-right would likely murder Josh.

In response to this event, Josh deleted every single one of his social media accounts.

Noteworthy facts[edit | edit source]

Milo encouraged violence against journalists on June 26th, 2018. Days later, an unrelated mass shooting at a newspaper office occurred that killed several people.

Milo had a ghostwriter back when he was working at Breitbart, meaning he did not write some of his Breitbart articles himself.

Lastly, Milo made an awful post on Instagram saying that Trump's critics that received the bombs should have been blasted off by them.
