“Scottsdale Police informed the promotor and venue for Friday night’s ‘A Night With Milo’ this evening that a credible death threat against my person has been received,” Yiannopoulos wrote. He went on to blame “violent left-wing tactics” for the cancelation, but said that law enforcement in the ritzy Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale had determined his security had been compromised and the risk to his life was real.

“Scottsdale police said they’d never received word of any threats against Yiannopoulos. In fact, Sgt. Ben Hoster of the Scottsdale Police Department told Phoenix talk radio station KTAR that the department had only learned of the event earlier on Thursday. And by the time someone from the department reached out to the venue, the speech had already been canceled.”
