"Breitbart News has stood by me when others caved", he said, reading from a prepared statement. "For me, now, that means stepping aside so my colleagues at Breitbart can get back to the great work they do".

"They said banning me from Twitter would finish me off". "I am a gay man, and a child abuse victim", he wrote. "They care about destroying me and my allies".
