Milo Yiannopoulos has resigned from rightwing blog

The conservative, alt-right journalist stirred a firestorm of controversy when he appeared to defend underage sex with young boys in a videos that surfaced online Sunday.

Milo announced his resignation on Tuesday at a press conference in New York City, a day after the news broke that Breitbart was considering firing him.

“I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues’ important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart, effective immediately. This decision is mine alone,” he said.

The embattled blogger served as Breitbart's Senior Tech editor.

On Tuesday, Breitbart staffers threatening to walk out if Milo wasn't terminated.

The growing backlash against Milo cost him a lucrative book deal, and CPAC rescinded its invitation to him to speak at the conservative conference on Wednesday.

Simon & Schuster announced Monday it terminated a book deal for Milo's book "Dangerous" amid the growing public outcry.

On Monday, Milo responded to the growing controversy in a statement on his Facebook page.

He said he was "horrified" by pedophilia and wrote, "I am a gay man, and a child abuse victim.".

Milo had earlier stated he willingly lost his virginity to a gay man at age 13.

    This is just an example of the confusion that many men and or women battle after being molested and abused as a child or adult...the human body may get aroused but the brain is what leads it all...just a sad situation and he clearly has been mislead into believing some of the things that happened to him were OK... Im just surprised he was reprimanded... I almost thought being white and gay meant you where untouchable in society... Js
