Revealed: Milo Yiannopoulos’ tour rider is as ludicrous as his politics

Venues will be fined in excess of $7500 if they play anything by Adele

The tour rider of conservative firebrand and alt-right favorite Milo Yiannopoulos has leaked. 

Emails passed to The Tab show his demands include “4 topless Abercrombie models, BLACK PREFERRED — NO gingers“, “2 x Laurent-Perrier Brut NV Methuselah” and “Framed 8×10 portrait of Daddy; frame must be gilded/gold-leaf; placed adjacent to artist’s.”

The rider also asks that “lesbian maintenance personnel must remain 100 feet away at all times and may not wear khakis, flannel, Birkenstocks, or plaid.”

The British journalist is set to restart his “Dangerous Faggot” tour of American campuses next month.

Earlier legs of the tour saw students at Rutgers smearing themselves in red paint in protest, and the fallout from a stage invasion at DePaul University led to its president standing down.

His employer Breitbart has been under increased scrutiny after its chairman Steve Bannon was appointed Donald Trump’s campaign chief.

Hillary Clinton singled out some of Yiannopoulos’ stories in a speech last week, lamenting that a site which published such pieces as “The solution to online ‘harassment’ is simple: Women should log off” should hold such sway in the political campaign of a major party candidate.

Yiannopoulos confirmed the authenticity of the rider, but declined to comment.
