It's that iconoclast Milo Yiannopoulos has been ousted from his keynote speaking slot at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Here is the media coverage from Politico.
The reversal of fortune came about because a video disclosed that MY advocated sexual relationships between older men and younger boys.
In the mindset of many that means the "p" word. That is, "pedophilia." As the conservative movement in America struggles to regroup in response to Trumpism, it can't afford to be associated with such a reprehensible idea.

No one is buying that. Conservative power is in play and there is no room for any association with the "p" concept.
