After Being Banned, Milo Yiannopoulos Unsuccessfully Tried to Sneak Back Onto Twitter
He was banned for life from Twitter, but it appears that alt-right darling Milo Yiannopoulos (pictured above giving the “White Power” hand gesture) tried to sneak back onto the micro-blogging social media platform. As Business Insider reported this weekend, the Twitter account @DANGERoUSFAGGoT — already suspended by the powers that be — featured a profile pic of the former Breitbart editor, info about upcoming appearances by the neo-Nazi provocateur and a particularly sketchy bio section.
In addition to “Feminism is cancer” — a favorite talking point of Yiannopoulos and his mouth-breathing fans — the bio section of the profile read “Will probably get banned unless I say I’m not Milo, so I’m not Milo. Even then I’ll probably still get banned.”
This post over at Breitbart (don’t give them the click) has us convinced the account was in fact Yiannopoulos, seeing as how a tag in the story — about his upcoming May 5, 2017 “long-awaited return to the spotlight” — features the tag “Dangerous Faggot.” (Yiannopoulos has also taken to using the slogan “The Bitch Is Back.” How original.)
A pinned tweet on the Twitter account linked to the YouTube video.
At the time the @DANGERoUSFAGGoT account — created in March 2017 — was suspended, it reportedly had 11,500 followers and 462 tweets, which BI describes as “mostly conservative, and at times offensive, tweets connected to the alt-right movement.”
One Tweet reportedly read “Because Islamic terror attacks have nothing to do with Islam, when they shout ‘Allahu Akbar’ it actually translates to ‘Trump made me do it.’”
Yiannopoulos was banned from Twitter last July for violating Twitter’s terms of service. He had been suspended twice before, each time for violating rules about targeted abuse toward other Twitter users. His racist and sexist public disparagement of Ghostbusters and Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones made headlines.
The social media demagogue saw his world begin to come crashing down when Simon & Schuster dropped his book deal back in February following ridiculous pro-pederasty comments. Shortly thereafter, he resigned from his position at Breitbart.
