Milo Yiannopoulos hit a popular drag cabaret in New York last night with fellow extremist Pamela Geller.
The two came for dinner at Lips restaurant with Chadwick Moore and Gavin McInnes and, according to witnesses, became visibly drunk. After the show, Geller jumped up on stage and said, “this is wrong, this is disgusting—we need a conversation.” On Facebook, Lips performer Gusty Winds reported that her hate-mongering speech “was drowned out by the customers.”
The two alt-right “celebrities” posted a picture from the evening on Instagram, with Geller writing, “.@milo.yiannopoulos and me on a Saturday night celebrating being alive!”
Yiannopolous also posted a video to Facebook.
Staffers were appalled by their presence but maintained their professionalism. “I’m so very proud of all of them, for their absolute stellar behavior and restraint,” Winds wrote. “It’s easy to get angry and engage, there is a time and a place for it. The place was not Lips last night.”
She believes the duo came to make a scene, “and when they didn’t get it, they had to make one.”
“In this country you have the right to say what you want, however gross and disgusting that it is. What you don’t have the right to do is come in to a place where all are welcome and because you’re not getting your hateful ego stroked… you don’t have the right to rob other people of their right to a good time. ”
