Restaurant cancels Milo Yiannopoulos book party after realising it’s Milo Yiannopoulos
A party to launch Milo Yiannopoulos’ long-delayed book was axed after the venue’s owner realised what the event was.
The ex-Breitbart editor’s ‘Coming out Conservative’ night at New York Pride was cancelled at the last minute.
The owner of New York dim sum restaurant, Jue Lan Club, said he had no idea what the event was when they took the booking.
Horrified club owner Stratis Morfogen banned the alt-right group over fears it would alienate his regular customers.
The restaurant is based in Chelsea, New York, which has a considerable LGBT population.
“I had no idea this was booked. It was told to us it was a gay pride event,” the restaurateur told Page Six.
Milo hit back at the cancellation, claiming “angry, bitter leftists” had bullied the venue.
“Angry, bitter leftists have seized control over the Pride celebration and made it a political statement against President Trump,” said Yiannopoulos.
“I am throwing a party for the outcasts, the rebels, and the gay conservatives who speak, think, and live free of liberal demands.”
Milo’s new book, Dangerous, is due to be released in July four months after it was axed by its major publisher.
Guests of the event had been sent an invite from Milo claiming it was harder to come out as conservative than gay.
The invitation read:
Across the country, gay conservatives have been warned that they are not welcomed at Pride this year. Angry, bitter leftists have seized control over the celebration and made it a political statement against President Trump.
In honour of my new book Dangerous, I am throwing a party for the outcasts, the rebels, the gay conservatives who speak, think, and live free of liberal demands.

Come celebrate all the things that make us different and Dangerous to politically correct gay liberals.
The former columnist and semi-professional internet troll was hastily ditched as an alt-right figurehead earlier this year after damaging tapes emerged in which he discussed men who have sex with underage boys.
In just 24 hours the columnist was dropped from far-right news website Breitbart News, had his book deal axed by Simon & Schuster, and was removed from the line-up of the Republican CPAC conference.
His book ‘Dangerous’ had been set for release this year, but after the cancellation of the Simon & Schuster deal Yiannopoulos was forced to self-publish.
