A website owned by alt-right activist Milo Yiannopoulos has been sold just one month after he said he was struggling to put food on the table.

The website – dangerous.com – now bears a message which says: “Dangerous.com has been sold and is no longer associated with its previous owner.”

Yiannopoulos has not yet commented on the sale, the Daily Dot reports – although commenting publicly on issues like these may be a challenge to the former Breitbart writer, as he has been deplatformed by most social media sites.

Milo Yiannopoulos: ‘Microscopic following’ won’t put food on table.

Last month, Yiannopoulos complained on Telegram that he can’t put food on the table as his fans are no longer supporting him.

In the post, he said that his “microscopic following” of 20,000 people on the platform was not enough.

“It’s just not a good use of my time to be here,” he wrote. “Talking to the same 1,000 people, none of whom buy books, tickets to anything or donate.

I can’t make a career out of a handful of people like that. I can’t put food on the table this way.

“Views on my posts have crashed down to 2 or 3 k total. Channel keeps getting muted. I’m close to quitting.”

“I spent years growing and developing and investing in my fan base and they just took it away in a flash. This 19k bullshit here is not going to cut it,” he moaned. “I can’t make a career out of a handful of people like that. I can’t put food on the table this way.”

He continued: “There’s no future to Telegram for social media refugees if this is the best it gets. I’ll just retire from social media entirely tbh.

“It’s pathetic. So demoralising. I’m not going to waste myself on an audience of 2,000. I just refuse.”

He was also banned from a furry convention last month.

Yiannopoulos has been deplatformed by a number of social media websites, including Facebook and Twitter, for hate speech.

He once said he would “cure” himself of being gay if he could, and described trans people as “mentally ill gay men dressing up for attention”. He also said lesbians aren’t real, just “confused straight women”.

Last month, Yiannopoulos tried to win fans in the furry community by attending a convention in Chicago – but he had no luck, as he was promptly banned from the event.

The convention’s officials issued a statement which said that they had “rescinded” his registration from the event.

“He is not welcome to attend this or any future Midwest FurFest event.”
