Milo Yiannopoulos, the former Breitbart editor and self-declared “dangerous faggot,” didn’t wait too long after the Manchester terror attack to lace into singer Ariana Grande as “pro-immigrant, pro-Islam and anti-America.”
“Sadly, Ariana Grande is too stupid to wise up and warn her European fans about the real threats to their freedom and their lives,” wrote the British-born Yiannopoulos in a Facebook post Tuesday morning.
Grande was headlining a concert Monday night at the Manchester Arena, when a terrorist attacker struck and killed 22 people and injured dozens more.
Yiannopoulos seemed to be referring to an incident two years ago, when Grande was caught on a hot camera saying that she “hated America.” She later explained the comments as a response to the United States’ obesity epidemic and unhealthy foods.
Yiannopoulos has been reemerging after a February scandal around remarks in which he appeared to defend pedophilia. That led him to resign from Breitbart and cost him a book deal and big speaking engagement.
In addition to attacking Grande, he will lead a protest in New York City this week against Muslim civil rights activist Linda Sarsour, whom he calls “Shariasour.”
