Milo Yiannopoulos answers paedophilia claims : Full press conference
VIDEOS BELOW: Amid claims of support for paedophilia Milo Yiannopoulos has today resigned from his post as Tech Editor at Breitbart.com. Milo thanked Breitbart for sticking up for him when others would have caved & giving him the opportunity to carry conservative & libertarian ideas to communities that without them would have never been heard. Yiannopoulos also promised that his book would still be released this year under a new publisher, possibly with a new chapter.
Footage released by a conservative group called the Reagen Battalion earlier in the week, shows what appears to be Milo Yiannopoulos advocating relationships between older men & younger sexually active boys.
I strongly disagree with the claims made by Yiannopoulos during the podcast & in the video below so does he. In a live press conference early today Milo Yiannopoulos has formally apologized for his comments & denounced any support for paedophilia, claiming his words were poor phrasing used to describe a relationship he had when he was 17 with a 29 year old man [legal age of consent in the UK is 16].
While I still wouldn't be promoting relationships between 17 year old's & people in their late 20's, it appears Milo has poorly described a situation while questionable morally was a legal relationship in the UK. Do you think this will sink Milo's career? Leave a comment on Facebook.
