Milo Yiannopoulos Uninvited From This Year's Politicon
The right wing provocateur will not appear at this year's convention.
Right wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has been uninvited from the upcoming bipartisan political convention Politicon.
A spokesperson for the convention confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Yiannopoulos is no longer booked for Politicon and that a number of other names will be added in the ensuing two months leading up to this year's event.
Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, who was scheduled to appear, also will not be attending this year, due to a reported scheduling conflict.
The convention drew the ire of social media when Yiannopoulos, who has sparked much controversy in the past when his planned speeches at the University of Berkeley and UCLA resulted in protests and cancellations, was announced as a guest at this year's confab.
The annual convention welcomes political pundits from both sides of the political aisle, from Fox News' Tucker Carlson to former Secretary of State John Kerry to fringe political figures like Dennis Rodman.
