Controversial senior editor of Breitbart News milo yiannopoulos has come under fire over the last 24 hours ever since an old video resurfaced. The video allegedly shows Yiannopoulos defending pedophilia, which means his job at the right-wing news outlet could be in jeopardy.

Milo, out?

Milo Yiannopoulos has made a name for himself over the last year traveling to various college campuses where he typically targets far left-wing students and groups, challenging them over issues like the First Amendment. Yiannopoulos has become a viral internet sensation with his speeches and lectures becoming popular, while engaging in controversial criticism of topics like Black Lives Matter, third-wave campus feminism, and the normalization of Islamic extremism.

Over the last month, Yiannopoulos has vaulted into the spotlight after his speech at UC Berkeley was canceled when protests turned into riots, as well as his controversial appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last Friday. As reported by The Hill on February 20, it's a year-old video that could finally be the nail in the coffin for the die-hard Donald Trump supporter who refers to the president as "daddy."

During an interview with comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan last year, Milo Yiannopoulos addressed the issue of pedophilia and molestation, hinting at his previous experiences as a young boy.

Some of the comments rubbed many the wrong way, which led to instant backlash.

The heat increased to the point that the conservative CPAC rescinded their invitation for the British journalist to speak at their convention later this month.

In response, Yiannopoulos has denied the allegations that he is an apologist for pedophiles, which claiming that the video was edited out of context. In addition, Milo even cited numerous reports that he personally took part in that "outed" pedophiles in the past.

Breitbart blow-back

On Monday afternoon, the bad news continued for Milo Yiannopoulos when Fox Business, and later The Hill, reported that Breitbart is close to firing him from his position as senior editor.

According to the report, "at least a half dozen" Breitbart workers threatened to walkout and quit the publication unless Milo was fired. As of press time, neither Breitbart nor Yiannopoulos have offered an offical comment on the story.
