Turns out Milo Yiannopoulos — scourge of Twitter and hater of the Ghostbusters remake — is very specific about his work requirements, and he’ll prove it in a feature-length documentary to begin filming in a couple of weeks.
Yiannopoulos, the gay conservative banned from Twitter after engaging in an online feud with actress Leslie Jones, starts his “Dangerous Faggot Tour” in a few weeks, and the controversial pundit associated with the “alt-right” movement is demanding his bus and hotel rooms be outfitted with a litany of very specific items — including de-fuzzed peaches and KFC thighs with the skin removed.
Yiannopoulos also is requiring two dozen de-thorned white roses each day, placed next to his framed photo of Mariah Carey, according to a rider obtained by The Hollywood Reporter detailing the demands of the writer.
While declining to comment, Yiannopoulos confirmed the authenticity of the rider, even though many items seem ridiculous. For instance, security personnel should not wear T-shirts, no Adele music is allowed and 50 white doves must be released at each show.
During the tour, Yiannopoulos will ride around in a bus adorned with a giant photo of his face while visiting 45 college campuses and lecturing about Donald Trump, gay culture, feminism, free speech and his opposition to the Black Lives Matter movement.
The budget for the tour exceeds $1 million, according to people close to Yiannopoulos’ business, and a crew is filming the proceedings for the upcoming movie. Sources say celebrities from traditional and digital media will make appearances at the various stops.
Some of the items on his rider are so outlandish (horse-oil hand lotion that’s banned in the U.S., four topless Abercrombie & Fitch models, four hookahs) that the requests could be impossible to fill — at least legally. But insiders say the rider is not a publicity stunt (not entirely, at least) as the intention is to work those requests into the film. Expect Yiannopoulos, perhaps, to throw a fit when his every demand isn’t met.
In his rider, Yiannopoulos also asks for Double Stuf Oreo cookies, a snow-cone machine, Tahitian vanilla candles and, of course, a full-length mirror.
Breitbart News, where Yiannopoulos is an editor, didn’t respond to a request for details of their employee’s movie ambitions, and there’s no word as to whether chairman Stephen Bannon is involved.
Bannon, who has produced several conservative documentary films, has been on hiatus from Breitbart since he was appointed CEO of Trump’s presidential campaign.
