Update: A "call to arms" death threat from a prominent Mulsim "tweeter" led to the temporary suspension:
Conservative gay firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos was briefly suspended from Twitter Wednesday afternoon, only hours before he was scheduled to deliver a talk on Muslims and gays at a press conference in Orlando. In this video from the Gavin McInnes, Milo learns that this has happened and hilariously, seems unsurprised.
Milo told Heat Street on Tuesday: “I saw the [Orlando] shootings happen and realized this has been something I’ve been speaking about for a very long time and although I’m constitutionally opposed to saying, ‘I told you so,’ this did strike me as an illustration of something I’ve been warning against for quite some time.”
How are you enjoying the new, sharia-compliant Twitter? https://t.co/pu1dNEbrEZ— Milo Yiannopoulos ✘ (@Nero) June 15, 2016
