Milo Yiannopoulos throws ‘$150,000 sodomy stone’ engagement ring in the ocean to prove he’s ‘ex-gay’

Milo Yiannopoulos tossed his engagement ring, a $150,000 “sodomy stone”, into the ocean to make it clear he is an “ex-gay” with no life.

The far-right pundit and former Breitbart editor has been scrambling to remain relevant since being booted off Twitter and Facebook for violating hate speech rules.

In his most recent bid for publicity, the 36-year-old has made it clear he’s 100 per cent “sodomy free” and announced plans to open a conversion therapy clinic in Florida.

Now, Yiannopoulos, showing off a new blonde perm, has decided to throw his four-carat engagement ring into the depths of the Pacific ocean for… some reason

In a YouTube video uploaded 30 April, he said: “My checking account has about $800 in it right now, and the last ten years have exhausted my savings. But this is something I had to do.”

Referring to himself as a “former sodomite”, he said he’d spent $150,000 on the rock. He said in the video: “The more I looked at this gigantic four-carat money pit, the more I thought this is the perfect example of some of the lies I bought into in my previous life.

“For instance, the lie that I could be a rabid culture warrior for the right and a sodomite at the same time. I can’t.

“So I chartered a boat, and here we are instead, a couple miles off the coast of Honolulu.

“I’ve prayed, drunk an enormous amount of vodka, and I’ve reminded myself that nothing beautiful or true can be made or grow on a foundation of wickedness.”

“You can’t build something beautiful and true on a bedrock of filth and lies,” he continued.

“The ‘Sodomy Stone.’ That’s the name I’ve given to the gigantic engagement ring I bought myself as part of a union I now regard as somewhat infernal.”

Yiannopoulos added that he originally hoped to lob the stone into an active volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. Yet, somehow, this fully thought-out plan turned out to be unfeasible – who’d have thought.

“It’s for the best,” he says to himself after chucking the ring and heading back to port. “It’s for the best.”

Milo Yiannopoulos’s engagement ring joins countless other parts his life that have hurtled downwards never to be seen again.

Such as his career, for example, which tanked when it emerged that he had never actually written for Breitbarta team of ghostwriters had.

His reputation was similarly dragged in 2017 when he was accused of endorsing pederasty with comments about “younger boys” having sex with “older men”.

And in the wake of Donald Trump’s defeat in the 2020 presidential elections, Yiannopoulos vowed to “burn the party to the ground”, saying his life and career were “completely destroyed” by his allyship to the failed president.
