Name: Milo Yiannopoulos
Born: October 18, 1984
Occupation: Entrepreneur, writer, activist and speaker
Milo Yiannopoulos was born on October 18, 1984 in Kent, England. Milo is a practicing Catholic and comes from Greek descent.
Milo studied at Simon Langtom Grammar School for Boys. Upon graduation, he attended the University of Manchester, but had dropped out. Soon after, Milo attended Wolfson College, Cambridge where he had studied English literature for two years, but had dropped out again.
He has been involved in an array of relationships, and has repeatedly stated that he prefers to have black boyfriends.
Milo initially started out his career writing theater criticism. However, he eventually became interested in technology journalism while he investigated women in computing for The Daily Telegraph in 2009. Milo eventually became a regular on television news programs, such as Newsnight, Channel 4, BBC and The Big Questions, discussing and debating technology, social issues and religion.
Alongside his university friend, David Rosenberg, and a couple of other people, Milo would launch The Telegraph Tech Start-Up 100, a list of the most promising tech startups in Europe, and The Kernel, a publication aimed at “fix[ing] European technology journalism.” The Kernel was sold to Daily Dot Media in 2014. Milo would eventually be hired by Breitbart News to be in charge of the website’s technology section.
He co-founded the Yiannopoulos Privilege Grant with Margaret MacLennan, which was meant to help impoverished white men to attend college. The grant has since come under attack, both in terms of criticism over the initiative and cyber attacks.
Milo generated headlines over his coverage of the GamerGate controversy, which he says was a politicization of the gaming culture by feminists. He is writing a book about the story. Due to his take on GamerGate and his criticism of gamers in general, Milo has received unflattering items in the mail and bomb threats.
Milo rose to prominence throughout 2015 and 2016, primarily due to his support of Donald Trump and his activities on Twitter. He has had his Twitter account suspended and permanently shut down because of his somewhat controversial remarks and his criticism of the latest “Ghostbusters” film.
It was announced in late 2015 that he would launch The Dangerous Faggot Tour. This comprised of Milo delivering speeches on college campuses. The biggest problem for Milo was actually getting access to university campuses since a lot of student unions have banned him from attending. Ostensibly, students and staff prohibited from attending because they disagreed with his speech and that his presence would violate their safe space policies. Also, when he did speak, his speeches would be regularly interrupted by protesters.
We estimate that Milo Yiannopolous’s net worth is $1 million (2016).
So how much is $1 million really?
$1 million could help pay for a tour bus in order to travel across North America and Europe to deliver speeches on college campuses. $1 million can also pay for the launch of a professional technology news website.
