White Privilege! Somebody Allegedly Gave Milo Yiannopoulos $12,000,000 to Start New Venture

Looks like douche-y provocateur extraordinaire* Milo Yiannopoulos has risen from his pedophile-tinged ashes to the tune of $12 million.



Yes, Yian-what-the-fuck—the bitchy misogynist of epic proportions, who had his $255,000 book deal snatched, resigned from Breitbart “news” and was disinvited from speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference after an interview surfaced during which he seemed to condone underage rape by “Father Michael”—is back.

A little more than two months after that fallout, Milo is reportedly rolling in the dough, telling the Hollywood Reporter that his new company, Milo Inc., has anonymous backers who have forked over $12 million for the venture, including a $1 million signing bonus, which he will use “to buy his boyfriend a Tesla.”

Pause: If he’s telling the truth here, this is, like, peak white privilege. Scandals far less severe have wiped out many a black person.


And, being the tone-deaf, silly, sexist ass-hat that he is, Yian-whatever continues to believe his own hype. He’s definitely a legend in his own mind.

“Obviously, I’ve done a lot of soul-searching over the past few months, and I’ve come to a conclusion: I’ve realized that I’m really, really important,” he (sarcastically?) said. “There’s a war being waged out there for free speech, and I’m the only one who can win it for the forces of light.”


He added: “I will spend every waking moment of the rest of my life making the lives of journalists, professors, politicians, feminists, Black Lives Matter activists and other professional victims a living hell.”

No, more like enriching yourself by being the perpetual petulant pudendum that you are, using shock tactics to stay relevant.


Let’s hope he goes away.

*I usually don’t use such strong language to describe folks, but if messy Milo can dish it, he should be able to take it.
