Billionaire Dilettantes, Milo Needs A HERO!
Milo Yiannopoulos has just one question:
Where have all the good men gone
and where are all the gods?
Where's the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Milo Yiannopoulos has been having a week. First, he got "shoved" (he did not get shoved) out of a New York pub by a bunch of terrifying socialists singing "Solidarity Forever" at him.
Then his sugar daddy OD'ed, and Milo didn't get millions of dollars to support his "media company" from him, because of how he'd died.
(According to Politico, once the bizarre far-right billionaire father and daughter team Robert and Rebekah Mercer gave Milo a curb job -- oh, sorry, not a curb job, that is what neo-Nazis do, we meant kicked him to the curb -- the lad with the expensive tastes and the American Psycho beauty routine moved on to the next sugar daddy for his dumb Nazi "media" company. And then that sugar daddy billionaire, Matthew Mellon, a New York state Republican finance chair, succumbed this month to a nasty opioid addiction; Mellon told the New York Post he had been spending one hundred thousand dollars a month on Oxycontin. In related news, this has just been a terrible year for finance chairs of every [Republican] stripe.)
And now Milo has had to fire everyone from his "media" company, including his date for getting yelled at by socialists at New York bars, Chadwick Moore, who, when he was getting yelled at by socialists for Milo, didn't even know he'd already been fired.
“He fired everybody,” said one person familiar with Yiannopoulos’ operation, which had employed a handful of full-time and part-time staffers.
Among them was the journalist Chadwick Moore, who was technically terminated several days before learning of his firing, according to two people familiar with the situation.
Moore spent those days with Yiannopoulos, unaware that he had been fired. Yiannopoulos was supposed to inform Moore of his dismissal, according to a person familiar with the situation.
Instead, Milo Inc. CEO Alexander Macris ended up having to call Moore and tell him about his termination.
No no no! denies Milo to Politico. We just changed the employees from one of my "media" companies to another of my "media" companies because Trump fucked up Obamacare so bad! Or something:
Yiannopoulos said Moore and [CEO Alexander] Macris were terminated from Milo Entertainment because of the costs of their health care, but that he had increased their compensation through Milo Worldwide to compensate for the move. At least two other full-time staffers were let go entirely.
Who is right? Milo, or the anonymous person scurrying to Politico to bitch about everyone being fired now that Milo doesn't have any billionaires picking up his tab?
We are going to go with: It sure is much easier to not fire your whole staff when your needs are modest and your luxury travel is in an RV to go buy beers for your readers, and when you can count on about 4,000 citizens a month to pitch in for you, instead of waiting to hook a fellow-traveling billionaire or for Head Nazi in Charge Richard Spencer to throw a bake sale.
