You’d think by now people would have learned. Don’t f–k with Kathy Griffin. She’s got no shits left to give.
Milo Yiannopoulos, the masochistic attention seeking alt-right mouthpiece, found out the hard way.
Yiowhatshisname has been throwing himself pity parties lately – including a social media meltdown earlier this week – and his (apparently) self-authored press release about an upcoming appearance at a political conference was in the same vein. Shortly after, Politicon uninvited him.
“Yiannopoulos is a provocateur and free-speech fundamentalist who has been fired or forced out of every job he has ever had, which he is immensely pleased to tell you,” the release says. “He is frequently falsely accused of racism, white supremacy, harassment, sexism, homophobia, islamophobia, transphobia and other imagined crimes by his many enemies on both sides of the political divide, who have worked tirelessly to destroy him.”
Bemoaning that most of his appearances are canceled and his book deal was nixed, Yiowhatever took a swipe at Griffin in the release.
“I guess I should get back on the American speaking circuit,” said Yiannopoulos. “Or I’ll end up a broke-ass bitch like Kathy Griffin.”
Griffin caught wind of the slur and responded on social media with one helluva burn.
“This morning, I woke up in my 13,000 sq foot Bel-Air mansion which I paid cash for,” Griffin tweeted along with a photo of her extravagant home. “Unlike you, I’m not a flimsy superficial bitch…I saved my money.”
As she points out, Yiowhoever won’t be able to see her actual tweet. He was banned from Twitter for being, well, a nasty all around person.
Dear Milo Yiannopoulos,
I’d tag you, but you were kicked off Twitter for harassing a famous black woman comic.
This morning, I woke up in my 13,000 sq foot Bel-Air mansion which I paid cash for. Unlike you, I’m not a flimsy superficial bitch…I saved my money.
