Milo Yiannopoulos forced out of bar by crowd shouting 'Nazi scum get out'

Conservative writer and outspoken Donald Trump supporter Milo Yiannopoulos doesn't make too many public appearances anymore.

Ever since he was disgraced for his comments about paedophilia and had his book scrapped by publisher Simon & Schuster, the 33-year-old hasn't been in the spotlight as much as he would probably like to be.

However, in a rare appearance, Milo was spotted in a pub in New York City - and let's just say he wasn't welcomed by the patrons who were already in there.

The crowd chanted "Nazi scum get out" at the former Breitbart writer who was standing with a friend with their back to the crowd.

A video of the incident has been shared on Twitter by a user called @timtakestimes and claimed that the group responsible for the chant identify themselves as the Democratic Socialists of America.

Later, reports from the same Twitter user appeared to confirm that Milo's appearance appeared to be pure coincidence, but that their tactic worked in removing him from the venue.

Clearly angered but not willing to let the situation slide by without his side of the story being aired, Milo shared a post on Instagram about his interpretation of the events.

In the caption Milo wrote:

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.

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.

The initial video doesn't show all of the things that Milo reported so it's impossible to verify what the true account of the situation was.
