Right-wing extremist Milo Yiannopolous lands £200,000 book deal with Simon & Schuster; it should be boycotted
Despite being permanently banned from Twitter and mocked for a whole slay of ridiculous, offensive and extremist comments over the years, Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulous – born Milo Wagner – has surprisingly just secured a £203,000 ($250,000) book deal with Simon & Schuster.
Of the news, Yiannopolous told The Hollywood Reporter:
“They said banning me from Twitter would finish me off. Just as I predicted, the opposite has happened. I met with top execs at Simon & Schuster in the year and spent half an hour trying to shock them with lewd jokes and outrageous opinions. I thought they were going to have me escorted from the building – but instead they offered me a wheelbarrow full of money”.
“Did it hurt Madonna being banned from MTV in the 1990s? Did all that negative press hurt Donald Trump’s chances of winning the election?”
“Every line of attack the forces of political correctness try on me fails pathetically. I’m more powerful, more influential and more fabulous than ever before, and this book is the moment Milo goes mainstream. Social justice warriors should be scared – very scared”.
Simon & Schuster should be ashamed of themselves. Yiannopolous, who continues to tour the US with his obnoxiously named The Dangerous Faggot speaking tour, is a thoroughly offensive individual. He regularly tells his critics that they “deserve to be harassed” and frankly, since he is just trying to become a younger version of the banned-from-Britain bore Michael Savage, his book deserves to be boycotted by rational people everywhere.
