LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
Following the video clip where is appears that conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos is defending pedophilia, the American Conservative Union uninvited him to be their keynote speaker at CPAC, and rumors began to swirl about his future employment with right-wing media outlet Breitbart News, it appears that his fellow employees at the publication are trying to force their parent company’s hand in the matter.
Add to this the report from Publishers Weekly that publishing company Simon and Schuster are cancelling their publication of Yiannopoulos book “Dangerous,” and its been a rough 24 hours for the controversial speaker.
The Hill explained that another senior editor at Breitbart told Washington that “at least a half dozen employees” are ready to walk should the company choose not to part ways with Yiannopoulos.
“The fact of the matter is that there’s been so many things that have been objectionable about Milo over the last couple of years, quite frankly. This is something far more sinister,” the senior editor told Washington.
“If the company isn’t willing to act, there are at least half a dozen people who are willing to walk out over it.”
