A Milo Yiannopoulos “task force” was at hard work this week.
In other words, a fan who goes by the Twitter handle “@wurlstah” went to Twitter’s offices in London to protest Yiannopoulos being thrown off Twitter last week. The act came during the RNC on the evening of his “Gay Party” when the journalist was severely reprimanded for trolling SNL cast member Leslie Jones to the point where she left the social media platform in tears. She quickly returned.
As reported by Breitbart News — which now has a reporter regularly covering its own reporter’s antics — on his way to the Twitter office to complain, he tricked some animal protesters who were upset about the treatment of donkeys into chanting “Free Milo.”
The Milo fan convinced the activists that Milo was actually a captive donkey (yeah, things are getting that weird with this whole thing).
In Philadelphia this week, Yiannopoulos, who is Breitbart‘s tech editor when he’s not on his “Dangerous Faggot” tour, announced in a CNBC interview that he has issued a subject access data request. He has asked Twitter to release any information it has on him, including anything that led to the platform suspending and subsequent banning him. They have some 20 days left to respond.
“Twitter hasn’t been honest so far,” he said. “I’d like to force the hand a little bit … the reasons they gave were garbage.”
