(Newser) – Milo Yiannopoulos just so happened to walk into a Manhattan bar where Democratic Socialists of America members were meeting Saturday ... and promptly found himself shouted out of the place. Video posted to Twitter shows the crowd chanting "Nazi scum get out" at the controversial conservative writer, the Hill reports. Yiannopoulos, a former Breitbart News editor, left soon after. "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 wrote on Instagram.

Yiannopoulos, who is gay and married a black man last year, went on to say that he has "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.' ... 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 went on to post again insulting the group as "feral animals" and more. The co-chair of the Bronx DSA says the group paid for the drinks of Yiannopoulos and his companion so they could leave as quickly as possible, Newsweek reports; she says the group sang "Solidarity Forever" after they left.
