Milo Yiannopoulos resigns from Breitbart after pedophilia comments

The rightwing commentator's latest trouble stems from his appearance on an internet livestream previous year, during which he said that relationships between adult men and teenage boys can be beneficial.

He said one video had been edited to give a misleading impression.

Not only was the journalist's autobiography risky dropped as a result, but his upcoming speaking engagement with the American Conservative Union was canceled citing the "offensive video ... condoning paedophilia". "It is up to him to answer the tough questions and we urge him to immediately further address these disturbing comments".

In a terse statement released Monday afternoon, the right-wing provocateur's publisher said: "After careful consideration, Simon & Schuster and its Threshold Editions imprint have canceled publication of unsafe by Milo Yiannopoulos".

The statement went on to note that "Milo notified us this morning of his decision to resign as editor of Breitbart Tech and we accepted his resignation".

The Emirates FA Cup
Aguero is a great player but he takes too many touches for Pep Guardiola and doesn't work hard enough to close people down. They have to play Liverpool at home four days after that game and then they go to Arsenal and Chelsea.

On the video, Yiannopoulos said that sex between 13-year-olds and older men can be "life-affirming" in the gay community.

Yiannopoulos posted on Facebook Sunday, "I do not support pedophilia. It is a disgusting crime of which I have personally been a victim".

Even with Trump's invitation, though, Yiannopoulos has gotten the most attention, thanks to a viral video of him criticizing the "arbitrary and oppressive idea of consent".

The book is the third that Mr Yiannopoulos has announced that has not eventuated.

Just minutes ago, Yiannopoulos took to his Facebook page to issue a lengthy response to the criticism he became embroiled in this weekend; however, it does mention the status of his CPAC appearance in anyway specifically.

He says he does not consider himself part of the alt-right, although he has called it "energising and exciting".

Footage of Yiannopoulos claiming relationships between underage boys and older men are natural is at the center of the provocative public speaker and writer losing two big opportunities Monday.

Following the election of Donald Trump, Yiannopoulos's star was on the rise.

The controversial figure was famously banned from Twitter a year ago after harassing Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones on the platform.
