Firing from Breitbart News
Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow announced McHugh's departure internally Monday morning. McHugh herself confirmed she was out, tweeting, "Breitbart News fired me for telling the truth about Islam and Muslim immigration" and posting a link to a fundraising page started to support her on the fundraising site Wesearchr. 
McHugh had ignited controversy on Saturday night when she wrote on Twitter that "there would be no deadly terror attacks in the U.K. if Muslims didn't live there." 
"You're a real moron," actor Pej Vahdat replied. "You're an Indian," shot back McHugh, incorrectly identifying the ethnicity of Vahdat, who is Iranian-American.
