‘Congratulations to Milo on His New Job at Fusion’: Twitter Responds to Milo’s Resignation

Capture

It didn’t take long for Twitter to explode over the news of Milo Yianopoulos’s resignation as Breitbart tech editor.

There were some, though, who still came to Yiannopoulos’s defense.

And some didn’t limit their vitriol to just Yiannopoulos; they went after Breitbart, as well.

It seemed as though even the dictionary people at Miriam-Webster even wanted to get in on the action.

Yiannopoulos’s resgination comes after the firebrand was slated to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), a video of him discussing pedophilia made the rounds on Twitter and earned pretty widespread condemnation.

Responding to the outcry and insisting that he has an “utter disgust [for] adults who sexually abuse minors” Yiannopoulos acknowledged that “these videos, even though some of them are edited deceptively, paint a different picture.” Not long after that publisher Simon and Schumer reneged on their contract with the provocateur to publish his bookDangerous.
