Right-wing roach Milo Yiannopoulos wants the world to know: he just shed his wedding band into the ocean. We’re guessing he also shed the last vestiges of his dignity along with it…assuming he still had any.
The self-proclaimed “ex-gay” posted a video of himself tossing what he dubbed his “sodomy stone” into the sea as a sign that he has changed his sexual orientation. He further claims it featured a price tag of $145,000. Yiannopoulos also sported a bizarre blond perm that made him look a bit like Joe Exotic.

“The more I looked at this gigantic four-karat money pit,” he says in the video, “the more I thought this is the perfect example of some of the lies I bought into in my previous life. For instance, the lie that I could be a rabid culture warrior for the right and a sodomite at the same time. I can’t. So I chartered a boat, and here we are instead, a couple miles off the coast of Honolulu. I’ve prayed, drunk an enormous amount of vodka, and I’ve reminded myself that nothing beautiful or true can be made or grow on a foundation of wickedness.”
In the description for the video posted to YouTube, Yiannopoulos also claims he has only about $800 in his bank account, which makes his actions seem all the more ridiculous. If indeed the ring was worth about $145,000, we would have suggested saving the cost of travel to Hawaii and just pawning the thing. No doubt that would have helped his financial situation.
Milo Yiannopoulos rose to notoriety as a writer for the right-wing website Breitbart, and for his defense of so-called “alt-right” hate groups. He’s faced scandal after scandal since, owing to his incendiary words, public affiliations with fringe organizations, and attacks on the queer community. His career took a nosedive in 2017 after he defended pedophiles, and after the revelation that he had not actually written his articles at Breitbart. Rather, several ghostwriters completed the articles, with Yiannopoulos acting as a figurehead. Earlier this year, he announced he was no longer gay after undergoing conversion therapy.
Our advice to Milo: you’re gonna need more vodka. A lot more.
This dude has unabashedly shown for years that he’s full of hate, “queer” resentment, mental health issues and will do just about anything to both get attention and to “troll” Liberals. At this point, y’all are only using his name for clicks while giving him free press. It’s time to move on.
Here here! This website will cover anything for clicks $$$
The next story I want to hear is someone putting together a GoFundMe to hire a hot guy to pay Milo to have sex. Tape the whole thing and then release it here on Queerty as an exclusive.
Stop giving this guy the attention he obviously craves.
Welp, being a rabid Trump supporter already shows he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed anyway…
It’s unkind, I know, but I’m only interested in the story where he charters the boat to throw himself overboard. (I’m joking of course.)
He can’t have much influence left with anyone; not really an ongoing danger… he doesn’t strike me as more than a has-been prick. Please don’t help him stay relevant.
No way he threw a $140,000 ring in the ocean. More likely he just got it out of a cracker jacks box. And pawned the real one.
As broke as he is, no way he did that. He made a cringy gay man. Does he know straight men have to be tops?
Not necessarily. As he is part of the GOP, I am sure there are a few women in the party who know how to peg a men!
He didn’t say he was “straight” or that he was going to sexually engage with women or was going to have a relationship with a woman. He says he’s going to practice celibacy. Also, you don’t have to top in order sexually engage with women. While there are also plenty of guys who mostly bottom for dudes and mostly top women. You also don’t have to sexually engage with women to have a relationship with one. You don’t even have to like women on any level to have a relationship with one.
Honestly, jokes about sexually engaging with women or topping or bottoming are tired. And while attempting to throw shade at him you’re risking simplifying sexuality as well as using homo and bottom shaming. That’s counterproductive as hell. This depressed, embittered, angry, attention whoring scammer doesn’t even deserve any shade. Just like he doesn’t deserve any attention from media outlets. So, they need to call it quits.
Don, you’re a real drag. Only you take you so seriously.
I don’t mind being that drag, especially when people make corny, poorly thought out, early 2000s types jokes.
LOL, the gift who keeps on giving. If you were only as smart as you were boring. Keep going, this is fun.
It’s more sad than funny that he very verbose Don, thinks someone (anyone) cares about his thoughts. He seems to pattern himself after tRump.
He’s desperately trying to make money from any source and mostly likely some right wing anti-LGBTQ group is paying him $30,000 a year to do stunts like this.
Milo is the poster boy of entitled white gay privilege. I remember when the media was trying to use the fact that he married a black man as a crutch. Now he’s discarded that black man and his supposed 140k ring for a even more crackpot and harmful stance. But it’s his life, if he wants to go down that road it’s fine, FOR HIM. If he starts harming other people with it, that’s a real problem. His husband is the first casualty of his decision. or this is all a stunt to garner sympathy for whatever BS he’s selling. Time will tell.
“White gay privilege ” has NOTHING to do with it.
He had “white gay privilege” in the sense that if he wasn’t white and “gay” identifying the media would have never given him much of any real attention. He just would have been another troll. However, the (Liberal) media has always been critical of him, even after he married a black guy. He tried to use marrying a black man as a crutch and as a gimmick. No one cared. And no one who hated him before suddenly hated him any less.
How he chooses to live his life isn’t really the point. No matter the dimensions of your sexuality and sense of gender and where you fit in the gender, romantic, sexual, affection, emotional investment, commitment fulfillment spectrum- you can live your life as you wish. He tried to use his “gayness” as a gimmick to make his alt-right rants stand out more (and was successful doing so). He has always been racist and misogynist. And now he’s using being a “non gay” for more attention, to push homophobic rhetoric, and to get money to open up a conversion clinic that he probably doesn’t ever intend to open. These are the reasons to genuinely hate the dude. Not who he has sex and relationships with or even his identities.
Why do y’all constantly make everything about sex and overlook real issues?
I think you’re wrong on several accounts Donston, his race had absolutely next to nothing to do with his success in the alt-right, it was the fact he professed to be a gay man who shared their views that made him such a useful idiot and I would dare say if he had been black, gay and alt-right, that would have made him even more of a useful idiot than just merely being white and gay.
While he did use the fact his husband is black, he made more out of the fact he was a closeted Muslim. (the number one reason I feel the marriage is a total sham in the first place).
I even question the assertion that he is in fact gay. Several years ago he penned an article at Breitbart were he went down this very same rabbit hole, stating that homosexuality was a choice and he could change his sexuality anytime he wanted too, citing how, when he was younger, he liked to bring several girls and black guys home and have sex with them just so his parents could catch him in the act, just to piss them off.
As for his ex-gay clinic plans, don’t be so quick to dismiss the idea; Florida (his home base) does not require therapeutic or wellness centers, such as faith based reparative therapist or even physical therapist, to be licensed or sanctioned by the AMA or APA or any other accredited mental or physical health institution. that’s why Exodus International was based in Orlando.
I do however agree, this is all for publicity, it’s all an act and it looks like he has yet again gotten the entire Gay press feeding right from his hand like the Lemmings they are.
STFU. His “privilege” and race having nothing to do with the fact that he is certifiably crazy. He has serious problems and your cliched mention of his racial privilege is an illogical characterization of his circumstance. He’s just disturbed.
I just don’t think the dude truly cares enough to actually open an conversion clinic. He’s in it for the money, to feed his bitterness and to troll. He doesn’t even care about Conservatives. It’s much more about trolling Liberals.
The Liberal media is what really got him the attention and platform he got and continues to get to some degree by them still highlighting every attention seeking thing he does. Conservative media has barely paid this dude any mind. The Liberal media has the tendency of giving obvious clowns attention for clickbait and for laughs, thus elevating those clowns’ status and turning them into martyrs. The same thing semi happened with Trump. And yes, I do believe if he wasn’t both white and “gay” identifying he wouldn’t have gotten as much attention. The media simply would not spend so much time focusing on a black gay identifying dude who is aggressively alt-right and an obvious troll and who can barely form sentences while speaking. Him being a “stereotypical white gay” definitely helped him character.
Plenty of homosexuals (and inherently bisexuals and pansexuals for that matter) will hype up hooking up with women and use that as an ego boost or to troll homo’s if they contend with internalized homophobia and queer insecurities. While fluidity, contractions and experimentation are things. He has also claimed that he is disgusted by women. His identities, the dimensions of his sexuality, the validity of his marriage, where he is in the gender, romantic, sexual, affection, emotional investment, relationship fulfillment- none of that really matters. It’s very obvious that he says and does whatever to troll and scam and is clearly mostly driven by money, resentments, anger, attention seeking and mental health issues. He is a loony bum no matter what.
I don’t remember seeing any proof that he actually got married. If he did, people would have seen a marriage license filed, or now a divorce record.
I think he was getting called a racist, lied about marrying somebody not white, and media just accepted his word.
Hdtex-youre really ignorant. The GOP only wants straight tokens-they are not interested in black gays. Milo was only accepted because he is a white gay, but they were ready to drop him at the first sign of “immorality” which he fulfilled with the pedo stuff.
Desperately seeking a wife into pegging.
BWAHAHA BWAHAHA BWAHAHA BWAHAHA BWAHAHA BWAHAHA!!!
Messy messy Queen!
Anyone think to speak to or with his now-discarded husband, or does he not get an opportunity to air his side of the story?
He’s probably the water boy for the religious organization paying Milo to do all this.
Yes, I’m pretty sure the husband and still “roommate” is in on the scamming, the doing anything for attention and money and trolling, the promotion of homo shame. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have ever married him.
Do we even have any evidence of this “black husband”? I’ve read about & heard about him, but I’ve never read or heard his name, nor seen his photo. Does he really exist?
I recall photos of their supposed wedding being published in an article here. Though I wouldn’t be surprised if he hired a dude and faked a wedding. Honestly, when someone is this obsessed with trolling, scamming, attention seeking and promoting hate, you can’t be surprised about anything they do. This is why it’s time for to the media to stop giving him the attention, free promo, and criticism he so desperately craves. Let this wretched queer fade. That’s the only way he might deal with his mental issues. The more they keep posting about every dumb, attention desperate thing he does the more it eggs him on to continue. But of course, places like this only care about clicks and filling quota.
When they got married in Hawaii, he stated then he couldn’t show his husbands face because he was Muslim and not out to his entire family.
Sooo, back to my original question: Has anyone thought and tried to seek out the husband to get his side of the story? Rather than making suppositions, why not just ask him what happened and what he thinks? Is he real? Did they really marry? Is he a Muslim? Did he also have a ring and has he kept it? Are they getting divorced? Is the ex-husband still in Hawaii? Etc. Queerty, you could perhaps break some journalistic ground if you did this.
Yeah, that bitch threw away money? When he’s broke? Trust. He threw a fake toy ring. Everything about his pathetic look at me, look at me life, is performance art. And bad performance art at best.
Did he srsly use the Titanic theme song for this ridiculous stunt?
This guy gives the word Psycho a new meaning.
Honestly, sites claiming to cater to the lgbtq community shouldn’t give this person any attention or airtime.
Giving him any publicity is the problem. He craves attention and including the link just gives him clicks. He didn’t chuck a ring that’s worth over $100,000 in the ocean. It’s all a pathetic scam.
Crazy, scamming, hateful, trolling narcissists like him knows that social media likes to gang up and knows that many sites just care about clicks and links and comments. All he has to do is pull a basic ass stunt like throw a cheap ring in the ocean, and it gets some people on Twitter talking and gets him a few articles. The scamming and the attention whoring is working, though perhaps not to the degree it used to. The entire internet has to act like this dude doesn’t exist. I’m not gonna comment any longer whenever this site posts something else about him (which we know they will).
While he’s prattling on how fake diamonds are maybe he should have taken the opportunity to throw out his diamond earrings as well.
If he wants to be less fake, maybe he should ditch the bad perm and dye job.
When your whole life is a giant stunt.
Exactly when did he have dignity???? He’s broke- anyone believing that ring is worth $150,000 is a fool.
37 comments and counting is why we’ll never be free of him.
I’ve definitely contributed a lot to this thread. But it’s been more about calling out other people’s nonsense, oversights, hypocrisy and misgivings than about Milo. There really isn’t anything to actually say about Milo. And before these last couple of articles about him I’ve made sure to pay him no mind. Still, any amount of attention to anything connected to him is too much. I certainly won’t be responding to any future articles or social media about this dude.
Know-it-all Don, the party killer, get a real hobby or something. We don’t need nor want you “lessons”.
I keep telling Don that we can’t miss him if he doesn’t leave. He doesn’t get the hint and prattles on like a three-year-old who thinks everything they say is precious and new.
He should have jumped in after the ring and stay down there with it.
Oh please !! Milo is more likely to snort $145,000 up his nose than to throw it in the ocean.
