Over the last month, right-wing social media star milo yiannopoulos has vaulted into the spotlight after his recently planned speech at UC Berkeley was canceled followed riots by angry left-leaning protesters. In recent days, Yiannopoulos has once again found himself in controversy, and he's speaking out in his defense.

Milo on tape

Milo Yiannopoulos is the Senior Editor for Breitbart News, and has made a name for himself traveling to college campuses where he focuses on exposing the far-left for their alleged sensitive political correctness, while targeting specific groups like third-wave feminists, Black Lives Matter, and other social justice organizations and causes.

Last Friday night, Yiannopoulos made headlines again when he appeared on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher," becoming so controversial that he triggered panel guest Larry Wilmore to the point that the comedian lashed out, screaming, "You can go f*ck yourself!." Since then, a video has surfaced from a 2016 interview the Breitbart News editor had with Joe Rogan, a podcast host as well as comedian, which appeared to show Yiannopoulos defending pedophilia. In response, Milo quickly fired back during a February 19 post on Facebook.

While joining host Joe Rogan for a podcast interview last year , Milo Yiannopoulos goes on to say that many relationships in the homosexual community are between "older men help(ing) those young boys discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable." When one of the interviewers said that it sounded like Milo was talking about molestation, the controversial social media star elaborated further, noting, "I’m grateful for Father Michael.

I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him."

As the conversation continued, Milo Yiannopoulos asked a question to Joe Rogan that caught the host off guard.

"You’re saying you’ve never seen a 15-year-old girl, at any point in your life, that you thought was hot?," Milo asked. Rogan quickly responded,, admitting that he did back when he was the same age, which led to Yiannopoulos denying he was speaking about molestation.

Mio's defense

On his Facebook page, Milo Yiannopoulos accused Republicans of promoting the aforementioned video, targeting those who he believes are angry that he will be a speaker at the CPAC convention later this month.

"Sad to see establishment types collapse into the same tactics as social justice warriors: name calling, deceptively edited videos, confected moral outrage and public shaming," Milo posted. "Here's how I actually feel about pedophilia, which you'd know if you'd actually watched or read anything I've ever done. Or, you know, if you had two brain cells to rub together," he continued, before concluding, "There's only one appropriate response to this sort of behavior, and it's a gigantic F**K YOU!"
