After recorded interviews surfaced of right-wing provocateur and “free speech advocate” Milo Yiannopoulos seemingly endorsing pedophilia, his invitation to speak at this year’s CPAC convention was rescinded. Now, it’s possible that a revolt against him might be taking place at Breitbart News, where Yiannopoulos is employed as an editor.
According to the Washingtonian, a senior editor at Breitbart allegedly said that “at least a half-dozen” employees at the right wing site are threatening to resign if Yiannopoulos is not fired.

“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 Washingtonian reports the senior editor as saying. “If the company isn’t willing to act, there are at least half a dozen people who are willing to walk out over it.”
“Talking abut young boys and somehow seeking to ameliorate concerns over young boys’ relationships with older men…I’m pretty sure everyone in the company would vomit upon hearing these words,” the anonymous source added. “What right-thinking person doesn’t feel sick to their stomach when hearing something like that?”
