Milo Yiannopoulos has had a self-described "miserable year or two."
But fear not! The right-wing provocateur is planning what he calls a "magnificent 2019 comeback" in the form of a "weekly late-night TV talk show," and he's launched a crowdfunding campaign to get there.

Yiannopoulos rose to what one can only describe as notoriety after raising a stink about protesters getting his University of California, Berkeley lecture canceled. Offensive comments then lost him his job and Twitter account, prompting on Yiannopoulos to call himself "one of the most censored and most lied-about people in the world" on his Patreon crowdfunding page. His "lifetime of wealth, privilege and success" was disrupted, and now he's asking for a monthly donation so he can "roar back into the world with a vengeance."
Giving Yiannopoulos $2.50 per month enlists you in his "Big Gay Army," which is literally just a name and has no benefits. Upgrade to $150 per month and you'll get "exclusive invitations to drinks when Milo is in your city (You're Buying)." And for an incredible $750 per month, you'll join Yiannopoulos' "Inner Circle" and he'll call you on your birthday.
Read all the amazing benefits you can get for unlimited payments of $750 or more below. Kathryn Krawczyk
