Out Magazine does not feel guilty over a tirade profiling the Internet troll Milo Yiannopoulos The magazine was profiling him earlier this week with the publication portraying him glowingly as the “Internet’s greatest supervillain” and “a professional mischief maker”. The magazine hit bat at numerous complaints from readers in an Editor’s Note. It states: “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 polarised election year, and we ask you to assess Milo Yiannopoulos, the focus of this profile, on his own words without mistaking them for ours.”
