Publisher Simon & Schuster on Monday announced it is canceling the publication of alt-right
asshole “provocateur” Milo Yiannopoulos’ upcoming book, Dangerous, after a video surfaced on this website and others of the Breitbart senior editor advocating for 13-year-old boys to have sex with adult men.
Senior Vice President of corporate communications Adam Rothberg tweeted the decision amid growing controversy surrounding Yiannopoulos’ unearthed comments.
The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has also recinded Yiannopoulos’ invitation to give the keynote speech at this year’s assembly. Separate reports indicate the far-right mouthpiece is “facing possible dismissal” at Breitbart—the publication formerly chaired by chief White House strategist Steve Bannon—as staffers threaten to leave the company if Yiannopoulos remains.
Yiannopoulos has made two statements on Facebook and is desperately begging media outlets to let him on air to defend himself.
As of this posting none have agreed to have Yiannopoulos on.
