Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos has a legion of dedicated fans. In the past, they have set up shrines to him, celebrated his birthday as “World Patriarchy Day,” and chalked “FREE MILO” slogans outside Twitter’s global network of offices after the company suspended him from their platform.
It’s not always easy to be a fan of the Dangerous Faggot. Like supporters of Donald Trump, Milo fans are often ostracised for supporting a man who, in the eyes of leftists, spouts hate and bigotry whilst laughing about it.
One fan has had enough. One 28-year-old fan from London was told by one of his friends on Facebook that his support of Milo led to them feeling in “danger.” Healy started calling Yiannopoulos “Uncle Milo”, and his “bae,” but has now gone one step further, and has now got a tattoo showing his support.
The tattoo plainly says “Milo,” in cursive, with one small kiss just below. It was inked in burgundy after Milo signed the man’s leg after a talk in London this week.
The fan told Breitbart News that one of the reasons why he got the tattoo done was to annoy “these… people [who] are far too worried about triggering and offending. If really your biggest concern is someone using the wrong pronoun on you then you’ve probably got got a pretty good life.”
According to Milo, there are a dozen kittens, several dogs and even two babies named after him. But this is thought to be the first permanent Milo-themed inking.
Is the start of a new trend? For better or worse, it probably is.
