NEW YORK (PNN) - February 21, 2017 - Milo Yiannopoulos held a press conference in New York City today, where he addressed the fallout from his recent controversy concerning his remarks about pedophilia. Yiannopoulos has resigned as a tech editor for Breitbart, and he took questions from the press on this subject, his rescinded invitation to CPAC, and his canceled book deal.

“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,” Yiannopoulos said in a statement. “This decision is mine alone.”

“The comments are not defensible,” Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow said this morning on an episode of Breitbart News Daily. “The video does speak for itself and it says something very, very terrible.”

Milo reiterated what he said in a Facebook post that his words were being taken out of context and that the videos that were being spread online were heavily edited to show him in a negative light.

He also answered several questions from the audience and denounced his position at Breitbart as a tech editor stating that he was resigning immediately and didn’t want to harm his colleagues’ important work. He noted that he takes full responsibility for what he said even though he didn’t feel that the videos portrayed what the media was saying.

Milo expressed that he would still continue his tours and that his book Dangerous will still be published by another company and available at a later date.
