Two days ago, Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos’ speech at DePaul University was cancelled after #BlackLivesMatter thugs and social justice warriors stormed the stage and threatened him, while security and police refused to intervene. In the aftermath, a video of a fat, leftist protester attacking me and trying to steal my phone went viral:

I’ve since identified the girl’s name as Katie O’Reilly:
Katie O’Reilly was initially identified by Twitter user UygurLeaks earlier today, and I contacted him to confirm.
Meet Katie O’Reilly
According to her (now-deleted) social media profiles and an article in DePaul’s student newspaper, Katie O’Reilly is a freshman majoring in English with a focus on creative writing. She’s an aspiring comedienne and is currently working as an intern for Improv Olympic, according to her LinkedIn profile.
She is also a feminist and left-wing activist, and recently joined the feminist site Feministing as a contributor:
According to her WRD 104 portfolio, O’Reilly has a history of being disruptive and physically attacking others:
Shortly after UygurLeaks revealed her identity, O’Reilly began deleting her various social media profiles. I’ve obtained the screenshots in this post from said profiles. Here are the links:
- Katie’s Twitter account
- Katie’s Facebook account (still active)
- Katie’s Tumblr blog
- Katie’s Instagram account
- Katie’s LinkedIn page
- Katie’s Flickr account (still active, though pictures on it are several years old)
- Katie’s DePaul WRD 104 Portfolio (still active, contains an archive of assignments for one of her DePaul classes)
I have filed charges against Katie O’Reilly with the Chicago Police Department and will be obtaining a warrant for her arrest tomorrow.
Anyone with more information about Katie O’Reilly (including pictures etc.) is urged to contact either me or the Chicago PD.
Interestingly, O’Reilly posted this journal entry on her WRD 104 portfolio today:
Perhaps she should have listened to her own words.
UPDATE (5/31/2016): I went to the Cook County Circuit Court today (the warrant office was closed Friday and Monday) and was told that I needed Katie O’Reilly’s address in order for them to issue a warrant. Anyone who has her address (with proof), please email me here.
