A video has emerged of a group of people heckling alt-right poster boy, Milo Yiannopoulous, at a New York City bar.

The 30-second video shows the bar’s patrons chanting ‘Nazi scum get out’ at the former Breitbart tech editor as he stands at the bar.

The heckling becomes too much for Yiannopoulos who eventually got up and left.

A journalist from tech news site Gizmodo, Brendan O’Connor, filmed the entire incident at the Manhattan bar which was full of members the New York City Democratic Socialists of America.

O’Connor tweeted a conversation he had with Yiannopoulos at the bar. The journalist asked him ‘if pivoting to full white nationalism was on the table?’

‘How many white nationalists do you know who have black husbands?’ Milo replied to him.

‘Who reads Gizmodo who I care about? Where does this fit on your tech beat? This isn’t how you doorstep someone. I’m just out with my friend.’

Yiannopoulos ‘rattled’

The next day Yiannopoulos took to Facebook to say the incident had ‘rattled’ him.

‘I was just shoved and screamed at by a big group in a pub in Manhattan and forced out of the place. One of them was a reporter for Gizmodo,’ he wrote.

‘They were screaming at the top of their lungs about ‘Nazis’ and ‘KKK’.

‘Initially I was going to stay put obviously but they blocked me from my table and my bag and yelled at me to leave and it was about to escalate into something ugly.

‘It rattled me a little bit (just slightly!), perhaps because I have something to lose in life now.

‘My first thought was John and not getting myself hurt or killed. I don’t know how I’d explain to my black husband that I got hurt for being a “white supremacist”.’

Yiannopoulos is a controversial figure who once condoned pedophilia and was banned from Twitter permanently.
