The party, to celebrate Yiannopoulos’ new self-published book “Dangerous” (Simon & Schuster dropped the title in February), fell on the same weekend as Pride celebrations. Yiannopoulos — who is gay — is famous for his intolerant writing on alt-right website Breitbart, before resigning recently over past comments endorsing pedophilia. Needless to say, he is a divisive figure, one known for drawing violent protestors to events.
According to Morfogen, that’s why he put a stop to the party. “I had no idea this was booked. It was told to us it was a gay pride event. We don’t get involved or take sides with politics, religion, etc.,” Morfogen told the Post.
Predictably, Yiannopoulos had some strong words in response. “Angry, bitter leftists have seized control over the Pride celebration and made it a political statement against President Trump,” he said. “I am throwing a party for the outcasts, the rebels, and the gay conservatives who speak, think, and live free of liberal demands.”
Yiannopoulos’ publicist is not disclosing the new location for the event.
