Milo Yiannopoulos has been disinvited from speaking at a gathering of the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) scheduled for this weekend.

Yiannopoulos, a Breitbart News editor, was dropped from the event after a controversial interview - during which he appeared to endorse child sex abuse - resurfaced.

Yiannopoulos also lost his lucrative book deal and there are reports that he may lose his job at Breitbart.

Matt Schlapp, CPAC's chairman, explained on "The First 100 Days" tonight that there are many disagreements among CPAC attendees, but they stand united in condemning pedophilia.

"It's not the appropriate venue for Milo to try to clear his name," Schlapp said.

He said that if Yiannopoulos has been taken out of context - as he has claimed - then he needs to defend himself, and it's not CPAC's job to give him a platform to do so.

"There's no place in the conservative movement for people that would mainstream something as horrible as pedophilia," Schlapp said.
