Prominent gay conservative journalist fires back at critics for controversial interview

A prominent gay conservative journalist is firing back at his critics after a controversial FOX News interview on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

Chadwick Moore works for controversial former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulous, whom he profiled for Out Magazine last fall before "coming out" as a conservative in an op-ed for the New York Post. Moore was talking about the LGBT community's response to the PULSE nightclub shooting to FOX News host Tucker Carlson.

"Most gay people only care about pop music and going to the beach," Moore said.

He saw some big time backlash on social media for the remark, and put out a statement to Mediaite refusing to walk back his comment.

He said nothing needs clarifying and what he said was "funny," going on to say that gay liberals "especially hate me because I used to be one of them. They don't like it when we step off the plantation."
