Milo Yiannopoulos is parting ways with Ye (formerly Kanye West). The ex-Breitbart editor, who had been serving as Yeezy’s chief of staff, revealed his exit to TMZ on Wednesday.

“I wish Ye every success in the future,” he told the outlet. “I have some concerns about his new team and hope he proceeds with caution.”

Yiannopoulos also shared with TMZ his letter of resignation, in which he wrote that he “cannot be complicit in the production or dissemination of pornographic films and literature, for moral and religious reasons. He added that “such material and the kind of people invariably involved in its production represent an imminent danger to my life as a recovering addict and an unacceptable risk to my spiritual and physical health as a former homosexual.”

A source told Rolling Stone that besides Yiannopoulos, around 20 Yeezy employees have left the company because of other issues with Ye. “Porn was the slightest of factors,” the insider said.

For those who forgot about this guy, he had the lane for a while as "the gay far-right shock jock", but got canceled by the mainstream right after he endorsed sex with 13-year-old boys. Since then, he's mostly just been hanging out with White Nationalists and Kanye and seems to show signs of mental illness.


In January 2016, Yiannopoulos set up his Privilege Grant for white men to balance scholarships for women and minorities. He participated in an online telethon to raise money for the grant and in August 2016, reported that approximately $100,000 had been received in donations and a further $250,000 had been pledged. In August 2016, it was revealed that over a quarter of a million dollars had gone missing from the Yiannopoulos Privilege Grant. Yiannopoulos apologised for mismanaging the grant and denied that he had spent the money. In March 2018, Yiannopoulos confirmed that the fund had been closed down.


In 2017, Yiannopoulos was depicted singing America the Beautiful at a karaoke bar, where a crowd of neo-Nazis and white supremacists, including Richard B. Spencer, cheered him with the Nazi sieg heil salute. In response, Yiannopoulos denied observing the Nazi salutes while he was singing, citing what he claimed to be "extreme myopia". According to the bartender who was working on the night of the incident, Yiannopoulos, Spencer and their entourage came into the bar and asked to sing karaoke even though it had ended. When the bartender saw the Nazi salutes she rushed the stage and told Yiannopoulos and his friends to leave, at which point they began harassing her, chanting "Trump! Trump! Trump!" and "Make America Great Again!"


In early October 2017, BuzzFeed News published leaked email chains from Yiannopoulos' tenure at Breitbart. According to the report, Yiannopoulos and his ghostwriter Allum Bokhari regularly solicited ideas for stories and comments from people associated with the alt-right and neo-Nazi movements. Among the figures Yiannopoulos contacted were Curtis Yarvin, a central figure of the neoreactionary movement; Devin Saucier, the editor of the white supremacist magazine American Renaissance; Andrew Auernheimer, the administrator of neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer; and Baked Alaska, a commentator known for his antisemitic and pro-Nazi tweets.


In the interview from a January 2016 episode of the podcast Drunken Peasants, Yiannopoulos stated that sexual relationships between 13-year-old boys and adults can "happen perfectly consensually", because some 13-year-olds are, in his view, sexually and emotionally mature enough to consent to sex with adults; he spoke favourably both of gay 13-year-old boys having sex with adult men and straight 13-year-old boys having sex with adult women. He used his own experience as an example, saying he was mature enough to be capable of giving consent at a young age.

Yiannopoulos subsequently held a press conference, at which he said he had been the victim of child abuse, and that his comments were a way to cope with it. He declined to identify his abusers or discuss the incidents in any detail. He characterised his comments as the "usual blend of British sarcasm, provocation and gallows humour", and denied condoning child sexual abuse. He alleged that the video had been edited to give a misleading impression, and stated, "I will not apologise for dealing with my life experiences in the best way that I can, which is humour. No one can tell me or anyone else who has lived through sexual abuse how to deal with those emotions. But I am sorry to other abuse victims if my own personal way of dealing with what happened to me has hurt you." In response to the controversy, Simon & Schuster cancelled its plans to publish his autobiography in June 2017. Media outlets reported on 20 February that Breitbart was considering terminating Yiannopoulos' contract as a result of the controversy. Yiannopoulos resigned from Breitbart on 21 February, reportedly under pressure to do so.


In March 2021, Yiannopoulos declared to the LifeSiteNews website that he was an ex-gay and would begin advocating on behalf of improving the public image of gay conversion therapy. In June 2021, Yiannopoulos announced that he was fundraising for a gay conversion therapy centre in Florida.


In 2022, Yiannopoulos briefly worked with rapper Kanye West on his 2024 presidential election campaign. Yiannopoulos claimed that he arranged the well-publicised November 2022 dinner between Trump, West and far-right commentator Nick Fuentes to "make Trump's life miserable". "I also wanted to send a message to Trump that he has systematically repeatedly neglected, ignored, abused the people who love him the most, the people who put him in office, and that kind of behavior comes back to bite you in the end,” he said.


In March 2023, Yiannopoulos published material on his Telegram channel about Stop the Steal founder Ali Alexander, who had also worked on the Kanye West campaign. Yiannopoulos alleged that Alexander had been propositioning teenage boys for sex and soliciting sexually-explicit photographs and videos from them. In May 2023, Yiannopoulos was rehired by West to run his campaign.


In April 2024, Yiannopoulos was listed as Chief of Staff at Yeezy Apparel.

:why: Is this milo dude ok with pedos? And he’s talking about going too far lol.


He "apologized" for that and claimed he didn't really mean it.

Still hasn't apologized for soliciting Breitbart story ideas from famous Neo-Nazis and White Nationalists, singing karaoke to a crowd full of White Supremacists giving Nazi salutes, and setting up a meeting between Trump, Kanye, and the White Nationalist Nick Fuentes.

This guy pushes a lot of fukkery behind the scenes.

I'm pretty sure he feeds Marjorie Taylor Greene her wackiest ideas and Russian propaganda.
