While in New York City this weekend, right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos decided to stop in for a drink at a local bar, but the welcome he received was less than warm.
Unluckily for him, he chose a bar where the New York chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America had just wrapped up a meeting. When the group noticed who he was, they began chanting “Nazi scum get out!” until Milo and the associate he was with finally left.
In a post to Facebook, Milo said he was “shoved and screamed at” by the people at the bar and added that “it’s now impossible for me to safely go out for lunch in most major cities in America because I supported Trump at the last election and don’t like feminism.”
“They were screaming at the top of their lungs about ‘Nazis’ and ‘KKK,'” he wrote.
“Initially I was going to stay put obviously but they blocked me from my table and my bag and yelled at me to leave and it was about to escalate into something ugly. It rattled me a little bit (just slightly!), perhaps because I have something to lose in life now. My first thought was John and not getting myself hurt or killed.”
According to Milo, accusations of him being a “Nazi” don’t make sense.
“I don’t know how I’d explain to my black husband that I got hurt for being a ‘white supremacist.'” he continued. “I didn’t have security with me so I had to just get out of there. I won’t name the place we were at because the staff were really understanding and cool about it.”
Below is another version of the incident:
