Fury over proposed events by alt-right bigot Milo Yiannopoulos have led to the cancelation of a talking tour in Australia and a New York event has been postponed (and hopefully canceled). Additionally, his Facebook events pages have been deleted. The mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, requested that NYU postpone the anti-gay gay’s talk at the university because it was expected to draw ire from liberal New Yorker who were expected to protest, while nearby Halloween events were also expected to be taking place.
“New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio today requested that NYU postpone and reschedule the classroom appearance by Milo Yiannopoulos for public safety reasons in light of the nearby Halloween parades and New York Police Department assessments of risk,” NYU spokesman John Beckman said in a statement Tuesday. “Given the importance of close coordination between NYU’s Public Safety personnel and the NYPD (New York Police Department) to ensuring safety, the University agreed to the postponement.”
It didn’t take long before the alt-right bigot released a statement: “The entire city of New York is terrified of one gay man stepping out of line and calling out the Left as the intolerant, censorious crybabies they are. And they just proved it by censoring me again.”
Australians also decided that the country was no place for him and fellow shock diva Anne Coulter when they unexpectedly canceled their speaking engagement, and didn’t refund ticket holders.
“Yesterday, I woke up to the news that my Australian tour with Ann had been cancelled and the promoter was “transferring” tickets to another series of events…This is illegal. If you’re a ticket holder and want a refund, they are obliged to give you one and I will make sure that happens.”
