Over the last several months and years, Milo Yiannopoulos has clearly become one of the most controversial and divisive figures in politics. After a video came out where the figure seemed to be defending pedophilia, there has been significant public backlash.
When the American Conservative Union announced this week that Yiannopoulos would be the keynote at CPAC this year, many conservatives and liberals spoke out against him.
However, upon the release of worrisome videos which came from a video stream a few years back, it was clear that the already divisive questionable figure would not be able to speak at the event.
This all came just days after he appeared on Bill Maher’s show on Friday night, where the liberal host had an interesting, substantive conversation on the issues.
After the announcement for Milo to deliver the keynote address, and the subsequent release of the videos, reactions could be found across the internet of the occurrences.
Initially, he lost his recently announced book deal, was disinvited from CPAC, and now has resigned from his position with Breitbart News.

Upon release of the videos, a number of Breitbart staff had promised to quit should Yiannopoulos continue to be employed by the publication into the future. It was very unclear what would take place for him into the future.
It now has come out that he will also be resigning from Breitbart News, which has come into question in recent months, with former Chairman of the news outlet, Steve Bannon having a substantial role in the Trump Administration. This has only created more questions with the online news source.
What do you think about this situation? Was resigning the proper response to all the developments? Let HYPELINE News know what you think in the comments!
