“We didn’t condone them,” Matt Sparks, a McCarthy spokesman, told the Los Angeles Times, about the images. “We thought it was the right thing to do to ask for the column to be removed.”
"The images are inappropriate," another spokesman, Mike Long, told ABC News.
Prior to Breitbart California's launch, McCarthy expressed enthusiasm about the venture.
"This weekend’s launch of Breitbart California is a testament to his legacy of holding our public officials accountable for their actions,” McCarthy said in a statement last week. “I look forward to the voice of reform-minded Californians being represented without bias as Breitbart California launches.”
