Breitbart Chief: Milo’s Comments ‘Indefensible’

Brietbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow said on Tuesday that comments made by Milo Yiannopoulos—the alt-right troll disinvited from CPAC on Monday—are “absolutely indefensible.” Yiannopoulos was initially invited to speak at the annual gathering of conservatives, but his invitation was rescinded after a video surfaced of remarks he made which appeared to endorse pedophilia. Speaking on Breitbart’s radio show, Marlow teased Yiannopoulos’ 3:00 p.m. press conference—during which he will address the controversy—but did not announce the potential firing or punishment. Marlow added that Yiannopoulos’ abuse suffered as a child is “not irrelevant,” and then deflected to political enemies: “There are millions of examples of the left normalizing behavior similar to what Milo describes” he said.
