Add New York City’s Murray Hill neighborhood to the list of places that don’t want to see Milo Yiannopoulos.
According to a video circulating Twitter on Sunday, a group identifying as the New York City chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America chanted “Nazi scum get out!” to Yiannopoulos as he was in the bar, forcing the known right wing provocateur to change directions and exit stage left.

In response to the incident, Yiannopoulos posted a photo of him in sunglasses alongside a melancholic requiem for undisturbed lunch breaks.
“I was just shoved and screamed at by a big group in a pub in Manhattan and forced out of the place,” Yiannopoulos wrote. “[T]hey blocked me from my table and my bag and yelled at me to leave and it was about to escalate into something ugly.”
Yiannopoulos went on to say how hard it would be for him to explain that he was harassed for being a white supremacist to his faceless black husband.
“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,” he bemoaned.
Later Sunday evening, Yiannopoulos took to Instagram and screenshot the Twitter account of the DSA’s NYC chapter, which claimed that Yiannopoulos was actually at a citywide leadership committee meeting for the left-leaning political activism group.
“Bitch you was 20 dykes in a bar with a few soyboy hangers on but you best believe i got the fuck out of there, those hambeast lesbians were terrifying,” Yiannopoulos wrote. “And you had inflicted enough horror on the other people in the bar … to say nothing of the poor staff. y’all are feral animals.”

None of the videos posted show any of the members of the group touching or physically assaulting Yiannopoulos. A follow up tweet from a member of the Bronx/Upper Manhattan Democratic Socialists of America said that the group paid for his beers so that Yiannopoulos could exit more quickly, then bought one more round and tipped the bartenders.
He left, we paid for his beers so he could go asap, dumped them out, bought extra rounds, tipped the bartenders and sang solidarity forever with the whole bar

INTO tried to reach Churchill Tavern for confirmation of the incident, including to find out whether Yiannopoulos was at any time shoved, but a call to the Tavern went unanswered.
Yiannopoulos’s story comes out less than a month after his conservative friend Chadwick Moore, who gained internet notoriety for his Out profile of Yiannopoulos and then became a conservative after the backlash, claimed that he was kicked out of Brooklyn gay bar.
