What Did Milo Do?

I really like Milo Yiannopoulos, he has done more to soften the Republican party’s opinion of gays than the entire liberal side of the LGBTQ movement combined. But as reported earlier, Milo has been banned by Twitter. With all of the brouhaha about Milo, I wanted to see what he did wrong, so I started looking.

The New York Times alleged,

Ms. Jones in particular has borne the brunt of the online abuse in recent days, especially since the release of “Ghostbusters” in the United States on Friday. Hundreds of anonymous Twitter commenters hurled racist and sexist remarks at the star’s Twitter account, rallied and directed by Mr. Yiannopoulos this week.

Rallied and directed by Milo? Really. So I read on and expected to find a tweet from Milo rallying his followers to attack Leslie Jones and to call her horrible racist names, etc. As I kept reading, there were none.

Not one.

Nada

None from HuffPo, none from New York Times, not one tweet relating to Milo inciting abuse, so, precisely, what did Milo do?
