The video posted by Yiannopoulos on YouTube on January 4th gained attention over President's Day weekend.
"I'm grateful for Father Michael," Yiannopoulos said. "I wouldn't give nearly such good head if it wasn't for him."

"Due to the revelation of an offensive video in the past 24 hours condoning pedophilia, the American Conservative Union has decided to rescind the invitation of Milo Yiannopolous to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference," Schlapp stated.
Milo made headlines in early February after violent protests broke out at the University of California, Berkeley campus where he was set to speak.
Yiannopolous is an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump, whom he calls "daddy."
