Milo Yiannopoulos (born 18 October 1984) is a Jewish-British journalist, entrepreneur and technology editor for Breitbart News, a conservative news and opinion website based in the United States. He wrote previously using the pseudonym Milo Andreas Wagner. In October 2015 the Breitbart News Network placed Yiannopoulos in charge of its new "Breitbart Tech" section.
Misrepresents and undermines the Alt Right - "Are they actually bigots? No more than death metal devotees in the 80s were actually Satanists. For them, it’s simply a means to fluster their grandparents."
Yiannopoulos promised in January to create a college scholarship fund for “white men who wish to pursue their post-secondary education” that would be awarded in “early summer 2016.” The fund has raised somewhere between $100,000 and $250,000 to date, Yiannopoulos told The Daily Beast via email. But the Yiannopoulos Privilege Grant has not filed any paperwork to become a charity in the United States. When asked if an application for tax-exempt status had been sent by his lawyers to the Internal Revenue Service, Yiannopoulos said, “I’ll check.”
Yiannopoulos’s 2016 remarks in which he appeared to endorse gay sex between 13 year old boys and adult men prompted the publisher to cancel his book deal, which had included a $250,000 advance.
