Howard Stern commented on Milo Yiannopoulos’s recent controversy regarding his stance on child abuse.
Milo appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience in 2015 where he discussed his sexual relationship with a Catholic Priest named “Father Michael,” which he allegedly had as a teenager at age 14.
During the conversation with Joe, Milo creepily tried to normalize pedophilia suggesting an older man could mentor a younger boy and help the child understand his sexuality.
Trying to defend Yiannopoulos’s comments, many right-wing publications started combing the web searching for liberal hypocrisy. Glen Becks “The Blaze” ran a story titled “Double standard? Liberal actor George Takei once laughed about adult/minor sexual relationships, too” suggesting Takei was trying to undermine the severity of child sex abuse when reminiscing and laughing about one of his childhood summer camp memories on The Howard Stern Show.
“It’s ridiculous. George was talking about his own experience at summer camp. He had an affair with an older guy or something. He wasn’t advocating this kind of thing but for him it was a pleasant experience,” Stern said.
It seems Milo Yiannopoulos never reported the pedophile Priest to police. Milo was only a child at the time the abuse took place but he does have a moral responsibility to speak up now since Father Michael could very well be abusing more kids. Seemingly a terrible situation for everyone involved.
