The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On Feb. 21
Welcome back, everyone! Hopefully, you all spent Presidents' Day weekend relaxing in the sun, enjoying the warm weather, and pretending it wasn't actually the middle of winter. (I mean, it felt like summer, right?)
As you adjust to a (shortened) week back at work, take a look at all the news and events that had Bustle's editors talking on Feb. 21, from Milo Yiannopoulos's resignation to the Han Solo movie's first photo.
Donald Trump + Anti-Semitism
After a few days which saw numerous bomb threats targeting Jewish community centers and Jewish cemeteries being defaced, many public leaders, including Hillary Clinton, are urging President Trump to speak out against anti-Semitism.

Milo Yiannopoulos + Good Riddance
Well, it's about time. After enormous controversy over remarks seemingly condoning pedophilia (to say nothing of his horribly racist and anti-Semitic past comments), Milo Yiannopoulos has resigned from Breitbart. Many people are celebrating the downfall of this hateful figure, but author Roxane Gay's comments on the matter will remind you how frustrating it is that it's taken this long for companies to acknowledge Yiannopoulos' issues.
How To Help: Yiannopoulos may be gone from Breitbart, but the despicable behavior he displays and encourages is, sadly, still all too present. Here's how you can fight against everything Yiannopoulos stands for and make your voice heard.
Halima Aden + Breaking Ground
How cool is this? The newest cover of CR Fashion Book features Halima Aden, a hijab-wearing model who recently appeared in the Yeezy Season 5 show. "Never thought I would see the day that a woman dressed like me would grace the cover of a fashion magazine," Aden posted on Instagram Tuesday. Hell, yeah.
