Of Course The DL Would Host the Milo Yiannopoulos Book Party (with ‘Jihadi Strippers’ and CNN Bashing)
Of course The DL would host a book party for Milo Yiannopoulos, the extreme right-wing iconoclast. Remember that this is the guy who resigned his post at Breitbart after seemingly defending pedophilia in a year-old interview that resurfaced.
The over-the-top event last Thursday night celebrated his bestseller, Dangerous, but was essentially a Plan B. Indeed, the Jue Lan Club on 20th Street initially booked the party, but nixed it two weeks ago.
Based on published reports, there was a massive police presence from the 7th Precinct outside the shindig, further cementing The DL as the worst. “They weren’t even letting people down Ludlow – my roommate had to insist that she was just trying to get home,” one neighbor told us in an email. “Given the trashiness of the venue, and that it was a party for literally the worst person ever makes much more sense.”
Guess ownership didn’t want to wade into more controversy with its reputation for block-clearing brawls.
So, what was happening on the inside? Per Page Six:
Guests were also treated to a show by the entertainment group Donna Trumplova & the Siberian Sex Circus, which began its show with a fight against Yiannopoulos using a dildo, a meat cleaver, and a baseball bat. The party also had a performance involving burka-clad women, which was dubbed the “Women’s March.”
Onstage, Yiannopoulos talked about his “three most hated organizations”: ISIS, the Democratic Party and Simon & Schuster. He also discussed the importance of free speech.
A Hillary Clinton look-alike wearing an orange prison jumpsuit sat in a dunk tank waiting to drop into the water. Many lined up to dunk the fake former presidential hopeful — and some succeeded.
Apparently, there was plenty of CNN hate to feed the room, too. “And the second thing we’re here to celebrate tonight — which I didn’t know when I planned this party — is the downfall of CNN,” Yiannopoulos reportedly told the crowd. The sloshed mob drank it up and chanted “fuck CNN” ad nauseum.
Here is the hype video from Milo:
In other news, Yiannopoulos filed a lawsuit against former publisher Simon & Schuster on Friday, which had pulled his deal after the pedophilia brouhaha in February. He’s suing for $10 million over “willful and opportunistic breach of its contract” to publish Dangerous.
