Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos comes to Memories Pizza to “apologize on behalf of the normal gays”

WALKERTON, Ind. -

Milo Yiannopoulos, of right-wing news website Breitbart, held an event at Memories Pizza in Walkerton on Thursday.

Yiannopoulos says he wanted to publicly “apologize on behalf of the normal gays” for how the owners were treated following the comments they made in our March 2015 story about the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Yiannopoulos is currently on tour speaking to colleges around the country and was at Michigan State University on Wednesday.

"Coming through the area I realize it had been awhile and nobody had been talking about this for awhile and I don't think anybody had realized how significant it was. I don't think anybody has taken the time to realize what this meant and it stuck in people's minds," said Yiannopoulos.

About two dozen of his supporters came to meet Yiannopoulous. It was live streamed on Breitbart's website.

“I want people to realize that not all gays are awful because I can well imagine the sort of vindictiveness and meanness and spitefulness of the gay press and the left wing press gives people in towns like this the impression that all gay people are like that. My experience of real America, if you’d like, has been characterized by love, and compassion and decency and kindness and it isn’t the America you see in the media,” said Yiannopoulos.
