Conservative Writer Milo Yiannopoulos Banned From Twitter After Encouraging His Followers To Attack Leslie Jones On Social Media

Filed under: TwitterBullying

Milo Yiannopoulos

Twitter is officially amping up security on harassment.

On Tuesday, the social media site permanently banned conservative writer and self-proclaimed "fabulous supervillain on the internet" Milo Yiannopoulos — in addition to other user accounts — for his role in the horrific online bullying of Leslie Jones.

In case you're not familiar, Milo was known by the handle @Nero and is the technology editor for Breitbart.com. He had over 338,000 followers before his account was deleted for seemingly racist and degrading tweets.

Just a side note, this is the guy who says "feminism is cancer" and "Rape Culture and Harry Potter: Both Fantasy." Sigh.

Anyway, as we reported, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted directly to Leslie on Monday in an effort put a stop to the racist harassment she was receiving — abuse that was being encouraged on Yiannopoulos' timeline.
