Milo Yiannopoulos has remained under the radar lately but the former Breitbart editor found himself in the spotlight when he wandered into a Manhattan bar filled with Democratic Socialists of America members on Saturday.

In a video posted on Twitter, Yiannopoulos can be seen on his phone while a crowd chants, “Nazi scum get out.” Eventually, Yiannopoulos gathers his things and leaves.

Yiannopoulos, who got married last year, posted about the incident on Instagram saying that he was afraid he would be “hurt or killed.”

“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’. I didn’t have security with me so I had to just get out of there. I won’t name the place we were at because the staff were really understanding and cool about it. But jeez. It’s now impossible for me to safely go out for lunch in most major cities in America because I supported Trump at the last election and don’t like feminism,” Yiannopoulos writes.

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. 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.

Yiannopoulos resigned as editor for Breitbart last year after controversial comments about pedophilia surfaced from a podcast.
