According to a report by Fox Business Network, there is “fierce debate” inside Breitbart about whether or not to fire Milo Yiannopoulos in the wake of the controversial editor’s widely condemned comments from a newly resurfaced video in which he seemed to be defending pedophilia.

One of Yiannopoulos’s Breitbart colleagues — former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, who hosts a daily radio show for the website called Whatever it Takes — initially defended the provocateur on Monday evening. But he quickly apologized after his Twitter followers sent him the video, which he said he hadn’t seen before commenting.

Schilling engaged with his followers for approximately 40 minutes before being sent a link to the video, after which he immediately reversed his position.

Schilling kept his word and did accept criticism from his followers. He also, in a few cases, returned fire.
