Milo Yiannopoulos, the alt-right rabble-rousing internet celebrity, has announced that he wants to buy 4-chan, a controversial online message board where internet trolling was born. Yiannopoulos, an avid Trump supporter, was accused of inciting a movement on Twitter to savage Saturday Night Live actress Leslie Jones. In response to the harassment, Twitter permanently banned Yiannopoulos and Jones temporarily shut down her account.
VICE News Correspondent Ben Bryant caught up with Yiannopoulos who’s been accused of being Islamophobic, racist, and transphobic. “I don’t want everyone to be like me,” said Yiannopoulous. “But I think it’s important that some people are like me,” he added.
