Well, it’s not the first time the self-styled “provocateur” and prominent white nationalist has faced backlash.

On Tuesday, Breitbart News editor, Milo Yiannopoulos announced that he will resign from the “alt-right” outlet.

Over the weekend, a video surfaced online of Yiannopoulos endorsing pedophilia.

Yiannopoulos has been offending museums, blacks, gay and women since chairman Stephen Bannon hired him in 2014. Bannon is now President Trump’s senior advisor.

Yiannopoulos stated, “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. This decision is mine alone,” he added.

On Monday, Yannopoulos was disinvited to the Conservative Political Action Conference. Also, Publisher Simon & Schuster and its Threshold Editions imprint later announced it would cancel the publication of his book, “Dangerous.”
