Milo Yiannopoulos, the conservative journalist who has been permanently banned from Twitter, said that if Donald Trump were to become President of the United States, he would become an “existential threat to political correctness.”
Yiannopoulos, the technology editor of Breitbart News whose criticisms of feminism, Islam, and political correctness have sparked outrage on many occasions, was permanently banned from Twitter last month after his followers bombarded “Ghostbusters” actress Leslie Jones with racist and sexist tweets.
In an interview with Business Insider he said that Donald Trump, “represents a threat to the cozy establishment that sets the acceptable boundaries of speech.”
He also claimed some big-name investors privately told him that they intend to short Twitter’s stock in response to the ban on his free speech.
“I have spoken to at least two people who are seriously considering large-scale shorting of the stock,” Yiannopoulos said. “This is a sign that people who care about this sort of stuff don’t buy the harassment line.”
Milo also claims that because of Twitter’s commitment to political correctness, they are shutting down interesting people like himself and thus, he believes the end of the social network is near.
“I think the problem with Twitter is that they’re clamping down, and punishing, and now starting to step up bans on almost all of the interesting people,” he said. “Twitter is nothing without its content. You don’t go there [for the product] because the product is terrible.”
