Yiannopoulos responds to video posted by conservative site
AP, Feb 20 2017

LOS ANGELES — Right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos was trying to clarify past comments on relationships between boys and older men after a conservative site posted a collection of edited video clips that set social media abuzz. A blog calling itself ‘The Reagan Battalion’ which describes itself as ‘conservative’ tweeted video clips Sunday in which he discussed Jews, sexual consent, statutory rape, child abuse and gayness. Yiannopoulos wrote on Facebook, blaming deceptive editing and his own “sloppy phrasing” for any indication he supported pedophilia. He says was speaking of his own relationship when he was 17 with a man who was 29. The age of consent in Britain is 16. It’s unclear who edited the videos.
