If there’s anyone I don’t feel bad for on this planet (besides Donald Trump, that is), it has to be Milo Yiannopoulos. The right-wing troll who was finally disgraced and booted off Twitter back in 2016, with Facebook following suit in May of this year. This lack of ability to connect with his “fans” has apparently left him seriously short on cash and pretty mad about it.
Now, he and his alt-right following have moved over to Telegram, a messaging app which is still letting them communicate their insane ideas. It’s also where Milo Yiannopoulos is complaining about his inability to “put food on the table” thanks to being banned from big tech.
“I spent years growing and developing and investing in my fan base, and they just took it away in a flash,” he whined.
“It’s nice to have a little private chat with my gold star homies but I can’t make a career out of a handful of people like that. I can’t put food on the table this way.”
He continued: “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.”
It’s unclear what exactly Milo Yiannopoulos thinks people should be donating to exactly, but it seems like he just wants free money for being an absolute garbage human. Of course, it’s very much in character for him to complain about his lack of income while completely failing to take responsibility for his own behavior, which ranged from hanging out with neo-Nazis and white nationalists to seemingly endorsing pedophilia.
Yiannopoulos even went so far as to blame his followers for not bailing him out back in 2016, writing, “I’m clinging on for dear life. And I’ll never give up. But holy fucking hell the base in America SUCKS.”
“Frankly they deserve to lose their country and if by some miracle we manage to save it, it’ll be no thanks whatsoever to voters, readers, subscribers and ENTIRELY thanks to the few brave souls battling on the front lines, beyond all reason and hope. It’s years too late. The time to act was when I got booted off Twitter. Nobody did.”
Too bad, so sad.
