Milo Yiannopolos Plotting Comeback with $12 Million in Backing
Conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopolos has wrangled $12 million from secret investors to launch a new media company focused on “making the lives of journalists, professors, politicians, feminists, Black Lives Matter activists, and other professional victims a living hell,” according to a new report.
The ousted Breitbart News editor’s new venture is called Milo Inc. and will center on events with other alt-right personalities, Vanity Fair reported Friday.
The mag described Milo Inc. as “corporatized trolling via live entertainment.”
“The business of Madonna became touring,” Yiannopoulos told VF, referring to the pop star’s deal with Live Nation. “I’m doing the same thing, but instead of signing up with Live Nation, I’m building one. I’m building it for libertarian and conservative comedians, writers, stand-up comics, intellectuals, you name it.”
