Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Denounces Milo Pedophilia Comments: ‘Absolutely Indefensible’


Breitbart’s editor-in-chief made an appearance on the conservative website’s daily radio show to denounce comments made by his underling Milo Yiannopoulos defending and endorsing sex between grown men and boys as young as thirteen.

Alex Marlow said Tuesday that video of the comments came as a “total surprise to people in the Breitbart administration,” and that they found them “very troubling and upsetting… the bottom line is the comments are not defensible.”

Marlow didn’t announce any punishment or termination of the senior Breitbart editor, but promised answers later in the day: “Milo’s going to have a press conference later today, and he’s going to talk about his future with Breitbart. He’s going to talk about a bunch of different things.”

“The comments are absolutely indefensible, they’re appalling, and very disappointing that those came out,” he reiterated. “However, there is context. Some of the context is that Milo is a gay man, who was abused as a child. These are not irrelevant.”

Despite his denunciations, Marlow accused anti-Trump conservatives and liberals of digging up the video as a “coordinated hit.” He also accused the media of hypocrisy, saying that Lena Dunham and Roman Polanski‘s actions were much worse.

“There are millions of examples of the left normalizing behavior similar to what Milo describes,” he insisted.
