After Joking About Hurricane Irma’s Destruction, Milo Yiannopoulos’ House Is Destroyed


Controversial alt-right commentator Milo Yiannopoulos says the rock he lives under in Miami has been ripped apart by Hurricane Irma.

First, he posted a screenshot of his home on Twitter with this text: “#HurricaneIrma rips roof off building in West Brickell, Miami. The tweet didn’t get the sympathy he expected, with social media users pointing at his right-wing politics.

Next on Facebook, Yiannopoulous posted an image of his Miami apartment building with accompanying text that read: “My house is gone.”

His Facebook post didn’t fare much better. While Irma has left millions homeless and without power as it wreaks havoc across Florida, it was hard to find anyone who had an ounce of sympathy for the vocal supporter of Donald Trump, who only last week was joking about the devastation left in the path of the hurricane.

As the storm began hitting the Caribbean islands, Yiannopoulous posted, “In more positive Irma news, Richard Branson’s Necker Island has been devastated.” As the hurricane headed towards the impoverished Caribbean island of Haiti, he then posted this:

Not so funny now, huh, Milo?

The right-wing commentator has always been a lightning rod for controversy. In footage that emerged earlier this year, he was seen defending pedophilia. Those remarks forced him to resign as editor and writer at Breitbart. He also has said that feminism is a “cancer” and transgender people are mentally ill.

It is any wonder that this is how social media users viewed news of his loss?
