Milo to Breitbart: Ya can’t fire me, ‘coz I QUIT!
Milo Yiannopoulos had an epic bad day yesterday after a couple of recorded comments pretty much advocating sex with minors by the gay right-wing gadfly went viral.

Meanwhile, FOX Business reporter Charlie Gasparino says Yiannopoulos was forced out by the powers that be at Breitbart:
Gasparino mentioned over and over again how what great pals he is with Milo Yiannopoulis and the folks at Breitbart during the segment, but explained that Breitbart isn’t making any money, (they get funding from billionaires like [extremist billionaire Robert] Mercer) and so they ousted Milo, not because of his inappropriate and disgusting discussion about underage sex, but because of their bottom line.
Gasparino explained, “Let me be clear what’s going on here. This is a business decision by Breitbart.”
“The publication has become a little bit of a caricature with itself. It’s become so right-wing and it’s become so dominated by Trumpism and the alleged support by Trump that they can’t make money right now,” he said.
But still, you have to savor the irony, given the legacy of the late, not-so-great (but very clever) Andrew Breitbart: apparently, ya jus’ can quit him (or claim you did)!
