Milo Yiannopoulos Will Be Keynote Speaker at CPAC



Fresh off his much-talked-about interview with Bill Maher (and fight with Maher’s other guests), Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos has been slated as a keynote speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) later this month.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news earlier and the head of the American Conservative Union confirmed it on Twitter:

Yiannopoulos told THR that he will speak on topics like “experiences in America battling feminists, Black Lives Matter, the media, professors and the entertainment industry.”

UPDATE –– 3:07 pm ET: The Washingtonian‘s Elaina Plott is reporting this afternoon that some ACU board members were completely blindsided by the announcement:
