More Terrible Things Are Happening to Milo Yiannopoulos

Milo Yiannopoulos

The provocateur might be facing financial difficulties.

Milo Yiannopoulos's online store, which has offered sweatshirts, comic books, and tees featuring the gay alt-right commentator, is out of merchandise, reports ThinkProgress.

Out of 80 items listed for sale in the Dangerous online store, only three are available: Yiannopoulos-themed coffee, one tee, and his self-published book. Ninety percent of the store's merchandise is listed as out of stock. The lack of items may be due to the months of scandal for Yiannopoulos. Although he is a New York Times best-selling author, it seems he might be facing financial troubles.

Yiannopoulos resigned last year as an editor at Breitbart after making comments that felt too positive toward pedophilia and was terminated as a columnist for another right-wing site, The Daily Caller, after one article, titled "A Round of Applause for Kevin Spacey." Now the college scholarship program he announced he was creating for "white men" is ceasing operations.

Many details of the $100,000 Privilege Grant program remain unknown, such as its donations or recipients. "At present, the Privilege Grant is not accepting new applications or donations," Yiannopoulos told NBC News via text this week. "What started as a social experiment that also did some good -- winding up social justice warriors while also sending poor kids to college -- became fodder for disingenuous, mouth-breathing retards in the press to baselessly accuse me of 'white nationalism.' As a gay man happily married to an African-American, I got tired of explaining to my husband why people on the TV kept calling me a racist."

"Public donations to the Grant have been allocated to worthy recipients, and we are in the process of distributing the final awards," he told NBC. "We are also discussing what form future activities may take, and under whose leadership they might proceed. The Grant remains a 501(c)(3) charity in good standing with the IRS."
