Milo Yiannopoulos‘s website now says:
“Dangerous.com has been sold and is no longer associated with its previous owner. ”
In a post, Milo said that his “microscopic following” of 20,000 people on the platform wasn’t cutting it.
“It’s just not a good use of my time to be here. Talking to the same 1,000 people, none of whom buy books, tickets to anything or donate.
I can’t make a career out of a handful of people like that. I can’t put food on the table this way.
Views on my posts have crashed down to 2 or 3 k total. Channel keeps getting muted. I’m close to quitting.
I spent years growing and developing and investing in my fan base and they just took it away in a flash. This 19k bullshit here is not going to cut it.
There’s no future to Telegram for social media refugees if this is the best it gets. I’ll just retire from social media entirely tbh.
It’s pathetic. So demoralising. I’m not going to waste myself on an audience of 2,000. I just refuse.”
Yiannopoulos hasn’t commented on the sale since, but commenting publicly on issues it tough these days since has been kicked off social media sites like Facebook & Twitter for hate speech.
In the past he’s said things like;
- he would “cure” himself of being gay if he could
- he described trans people as “mentally ill gay men dressing up for attention”
- he said that lesbians aren’t real, just “confused straight women”
He was even banned from a furry convention.
Last month, Yiannopoulos tried to win fans in the furry community by attending a convention in Chicago – but had no luck. He was banned from the event.
The convention’s officials issued a statement which said that they had “rescinded” his registration from the event.
“He is not welcome to attend this or any future Midwest FurFest event.”
Hey, it’s hard out there for a homophobic, transphobic troll.
