Far-right troll and “ex-gay” Milo Yiannopoulos has been ousted from Ye’s presidential campaign, The Daily Beast reports.Yiannopoulos, however, contended the parting was mutual. “Ye and I have come to the mutual conclusion that I should step away from his political team,” Yiannopoulos told the site Sunday. “I will continue to pray for Ye and all his endeavors.”Yiannopoulos had been a campaign manager of sorts in the rapper’s informal presidential campaign.
He was the first to sign on, and then he brought in white supremacist Nick Fuentes and others.However, tensions arose between Yiannopoulos and Fuentes after Yiannopoulos said he arranged to bring Fuentes to dine with Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago.
Yiannopoulos said he did so to “make Trump’s life miserable.” Fuentes disputed the account. Then there were rumors that Yiannopoulos tried to have Fuentes fired.
Yiannopoulos denied this, while Fuentes did not respond to the Beast’s request for comment.Yiannopoulos has gained attention for outrageous comments and actions for several years.
