But before all this, Yiannopoulos got his start as a rather inept and awkward tech writer for a bunch of websites, including Breitbart, and he looked like this:
Milo YiannopoulosSide Note: Being in the "alt-right" is apparently a great way to age 25 years in a fraction of that time.
That's Yiannopoulos showing off his dorky, possibly Nazi ring, and presumably posing for his MySpace photo. Wonder what that profile would've entailed? Maybe something about how he likes to write poetry (read: plagiarize Tori Amos lyrics) for fun? Perhaps something further about how video game fans are losers and psychopaths, despite using that whole ridiculous #Gamergate saga to further his career? Months before "freedom of speech" became his battle cry and the excuse for his awful brand, Yiannopoulos wrote a whole Breitbart column about how those goshdarn video games (which are enjoyed by "unemployed saddos living in their parents' basements") were probably to blame for the Elliot Rodger murders, and someone ought to do something about them.
How did he evolve his writing style from "angry letter writer at your local newspaper" to "edgiest crybaby on the internet"? He didn't. His current work is largely ghost-written and researched by people that he actively works to keep anonymous, because if he doesn't get all the fame and attention, then what even is the point? Yiannopoulos is barely a person; he's a crappy Halloween mask precariously placed on top of a heap of regressive ideas society already flushed down the toilet. By the way, it was an unassuming teenage journalist from Canada who put the brakes on Yiannopoulos' rising star by digging up his pro-pedophilia comments from 2016. (If it wasn't for that, he'd probably have his own show on Fox News by now.) But we're sure it wasn't the Universe's intention to violently punish him in the most ironic way possible -- it was just a prank, bro.
