Milo Yiannopoulos Gets $12M to Build Alt-Right Media Company
Milo Yiannopoulos is reportedly plotting his way back into the spotlight, telling Vanity Fair’s Hive that he has received a $12-million investment to build a Live Nation-like touring company for alt-right provocateurs. The company, called Milo Inc., will be dedicated to “making the lives of journalists, professors, politicians, feminists, Black Lives Matter activists, and other professional victims a living hell,” Yiannopoulos said. “The business of Madonna became touring,” he added. “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.” Earlier this year, Yiannopoulos resigned from Breitbart.com, lost his six-figure book deal, and had his CPAC speaking gig canceled after video surfaced of him appearing to condone pedophilia.
