DING DONG: Milo forced to resign Breitbart, book deal cancelled

BY TROY MASTERS  |  Publishers Weekly is reporting that Simon & Schuster has cancelled the contract and will not publish Milo Yiannopoulos‘s book “Dangerous.”

Simon & Schuster paid Yiannopoulos $250,000 advance for the book.

In December, Yiannopoulos told Hollywood Reporter he couldn’t believe he was ever signed. “I met with top execs at Simon & Schuster earlier in the year and spent half an hour trying to shock them with lewd jokes and outrageous opinions,” Yiannopoulos said. “I thought they were going to have me escorted from the building — but instead they offered me a wheelbarrow full of money.”

But after a video appeared in which he appeared to be defend pedophilia, Simon & Schuster pulled the plug. Earlier the same day, the Breitbart editor was disinvited from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) because of the controversy surrounding release of the video.

When his comments about pedophilia/pederasty came to light, apparently Simon & Schuster realized it would perhaps cost them more money to do business with Milo than he could earn for them.

Simon & Schuster did not seek to “do the right thing.” They were fine with making money from his racism and his xenophobia and sexism. They were fine with his transphobia, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. They were fine with how he encourages his followers to harass women and people of color and transgender people.

Yiannopoulos declared on Facebook that the video was edited to make him look bad and conflate statements that were not made in the order they are portrayed.  He also claims to have been sexually abused as a child and points to what he says is a journalist career busting pedophiles.

Daily Beast reports:  “Yiannopoulos resigned on Tuesday from his tech editor position with Breitbart News following outcry over unearthed video appearing to show him defending pedophilia. “I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for [Father Michael],” he joked in one interview, while dismissing concerns about pedophilia being abuse: “It was perfectly consensual. When I was 14, I was the predator.” Yiannopoulos on Monday was removed as a featured speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) after the video went viral and board members objected to his booking. Additionally, Yiannopoulos lost his book deal with Simon & Schuster as a result of the comments. “Breitbart News has stood by me when others caved,” he wrote. “I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues’ important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart, effective immediately.” Breitbart News, in turn, released a statement saying they accepted his resignation.”

  1. excellent put up, very informative. I’m wondering why the other specialists of this sector do not understand
    this. You should continue your writing. I am sure, you’ve a huge readers’ base already!

  2. Heya! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours
    take a large amount of work? I am completely new to operating a blog but I do write
    in my diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to
    share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!

  3. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just
    curious if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much
    appreciated.

  4. wonderful points altogether, you simply received a brand new reader.

    What could you suggest in regards to your put up that you just made a few days ago?
    Any sure?

  5. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique
    content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission.
    Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

    all of your post’s to be what precisely I’m looking for. Do you offer
    guest writers to write content for yourself?
    I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating
    on a number of the subjects you write in relation to here.
    Again, awesome web log!

  21. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

  22. When someone writes an piece of writing he/she keeps the image of a user in his/her mind that
    how a user can know it. Therefore that’s why this article is outstdanding.

    Thanks!

  25. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries
    that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without

  29. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both
    educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i’m vwry happy I found this during my unt for something regarding this.

  30. Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Finding the time and actual effort to generate a very good article… but what can I say… I put things off a
    whole lot and never manage to get anything done.

  31. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought
    this post was good. I don’t know who you are but definitely you’re going to
    a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

    that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    quite some time and was hoping maybe you would
    have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your
    new updates.

  35. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead
    of that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I will definitely
    be back.

  36. Great blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
    that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Appreciate it!

  37. Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I
    could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform
    as yours and I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how
    you presented it. Too cool!

  40. First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to
    ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself
    and clear your head prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thanks!

  41. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your
    favorite reason appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware
    of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they just do not know about.

    Thanks

    I do think that you need to write more about this subject,
    it might not be a taboo subject but typically people don’t discuss these issues.

    To the next! Best wishes!!
