In a weird turn of events Milo Yiannopoulos announced late yesterday that he has resigned from his position as Editor of Breitbart news.
The subject of recent riots at Berkeley University and protests on other campuses, Milo became the object of conservative civil war over the last week after making comments condoning sexual relationships between adult men and underage boys.
Now the left is celebrating.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
Having thus far lost his speaking gig and his book deal, Milo Yiannopoulos has now resigned from his position as an editor at Breitbart News in the wake of the controversy over his comments condoning sexual relationships between adult men and underage boys.
“Breitbart News has stood by me when others caved,” said Yiannopoulos. “They have allowed me to carry conservative and libertarian ideas to communities that would otherwise never have heard them. They have been a significant factor in my success. I’m grateful for that freedom and for the friendships I forged there.”
Milo continued: “I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues’ important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart, effective immediately. This decision is mine alone.”
Yiannopoulos added: “When your friends have done right by you, you do right by them. For me, now, that means stepping aside so my colleagues at Breitbart can get back to the great work they do.”
