Milo took to Instagram to explain the incident, claiming he was “shoved and screamed at by a big group in a pub in Manhattan and forced out of the place.”
“Initially I was going to stay put obviously but they blocked me from my table and my bag and yelled at me to leave and it was about to escalate into something ugly,” he wrote.
I was just shoved and screamed at by a big group in a pub in Manhattan and forced out of the place. One of them was a reporter for Gizmodo. They were screaming at the top of their lungs about “Nazis” and “KKK”. Initially I was going to stay put obviously but they blocked me from my table and my bag and yelled at me to leave and it was about to escalate into something ugly. It rattled me a little bit (just slightly!), perhaps because I have something to lose in life now. My first thought was John and not getting myself hurt or killed. I don’t know how I’d explain to my black husband that I got hurt for being a “white supremacist”. I didn’t have security with me so I had to just get out of there. I won’t name the place we were at because the staff were really understanding and cool about it. But jeez. It’s now impossible for me to safely go out for lunch in most major cities in America because I supported Trump at the last election and don’t like feminism.
Milo has retreated from the spotlight since his comments about pedophilia lost him a job at Breitbart, a six-figure book deal with Simon & Schuster, and a ban from his social media platform of choice, Twitter. He recently embarked on a speaking tour of Australia, and is now apparently back in the U.S.
An extensive profile from Buzzfeed News published last year detailed his affiliations with prominent neo-Nazis and controversial members of the alt-right, whose views he attempted to mainstream with his audience at Breitbart. Oh, and Buzzfeed also reported that the password to one of his accounts was “Kristallnacht.”
