Milo Yiannopoulos faces termination by his employer and staunchest supporter Brietbart.com.
Breitbart.com is considering whether to fire Milo over inappropriate comments he made about underage sex with boys.
Milo Yiannopoulos is an openly gay conservative journalist who is employed by Breitbart as a senior editor of technology.
LGBT groups have long distanced themselves from the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) after once supporting the group wholeheartedly.
Breitbart.com has seen an exodus of major advertisers as the high trafficked website caters to alt-right fringe groups.
A source inside the Brietbart camp says senior executives are weighing how “damaging his comments are to the Breitbart brand”.
“Breitbart already has advertising issues regarding its association with the Alt-Right, and this doesn’t help the business side,” said a person who is familiar with situation.
According to Foxbusiness.com, Milo came under fire after videos surfaced of him seemingly defending pedophilia.
Milo reportedly said “In the homosexual world, particularly some of those relationships between younger boys and older men, the sort of coming of age relationships” may be deemed appropriate.
He added that, in particular “the relationships in which those older men have helped those young boys to discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love … and sort of a rock where they can’t speak to their parents.”
Milo noted that he willingly lost his virginity to a gay man at age 13.
As a result of the firestorm of publicity surrounding the videos, CPAC disinvited Milo to speak at its upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference on Wednesday.
A decision on his future employment with Breitbart could come by the end of the day.
