Uninvited CPAC Speaker Milo Yiannopoulos Loses Book Deal, Resigns from Breitbart

Far-right editor Milo Yiannopoulos has frequently come under fire for his controversial, far-right views, but this time his resurfaced comments appearing to condone pedophilia have cost him a book deal, a speaking engagement and now, even his job at Breibart News.

Yiannopoulos resigned from Breitbart on Tuesday amid widespread backlash over his pedophilia comments. “Breitbart News has stood by me when others caved,” he said in a statement, adding, “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.”
