Out Magazine Slammed For “Fawning” Milo Cover Story

The Twitterverse has reacted very negatively to a profile of homocon flamethrower Milo Yiannopoulos published today by Out Magazine. See some reactions below. Now added to the top of the article is this editor’s note:

It should not need saying that the views expressed by the subject of this piece in no way represent the opinions of this magazine, but in this era of social media tribalism, the mere act of covering a contentious person can be misinterpreted as an endorsement. If LGBTQ media takes its responsibilities seriously we can’t shy away from covering queer people who are at the center of this highly polarized election year, and we ask you to assess Milos Yiannopoulos, the focus of this profile, on his own words without mistaking them for ours.
