Milo Yiannopoulos on ‘Main Reason’ He’s Upset Over Scuttled Berkeley Speech: He Couldn’t Wear His Costume

”I was going to talk about cultural appropriation in full Native American headdress…with my name embroidered on it,“ Breitbart editor tells Tucker Carlson

Following a massive protest Wednesday night at the University of California, Berkeley that led to the cancellation of his speaking engagement, Breitbart London editor and conservative media personality Milo Yiannopoulos appeared Thursday on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show to talk about it.

As it happens, the main thing bugging Yiannopoulos was that he was denied the opportunity to troll critics by wearing a racially and culturally insensitive costume.

“I was going to talk about cultural appropriation in full Native American headdress. I had a full custom headdress made with my name embroidered on it. I was so upset I didn’t get a chance to wear that,” Yiannopoulos told Carlson.

Yiannopoulos is known for a breezy attitude in response to critics and his appearance Thursday night was no exception, even if he painted an ominous picture of student unrest. “The media has created this environment in which it’s OK to say almost anything about somebody who is right of Jane Fonda,” he said, adding that there should be consequence “because it’s only going to get worse.”

Yiannopoulos made a name for himself as an advocate for the online harassment campaign called “gamergate” in 2014. He was later permanently banned from Twitter in 2016 after inciting a similar campaign of harassment against “Ghostbusters” and “SNL” star Leslie Jones.
