Milo Yiannopoulos Dropped By CPAC, Loses Book Deal After Videos Surface

Milo Yiannopoulos Dropped By CPAC Loses Book Deal After Videos SurfaceControversial Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos on Monday lost a speaking slot at the Conservative Political Action Conference and a $250,000 Simon & Schuster book deal after a pair of videos surfaced in which he made controversial statements about pedophilia. In one of the clips, he appears to speak sympathetically about pedophilia, and in the other he jokes about having a sexual encounter with a Catholic priest as a child. Yiannopoulos said on Facebook that he regrets how his comments were interpreted, and is “horrified by pedophilia.” “I am a gay man, and a child abuse victim,” he wrote. “My own experiences as a victim led me to believe I could say anything I wanted to on this subject, no matter how outrageous.”
