Simon & Schuster Cancels Publication of Milo Yiannopoulos’s Book

(Before It's News)

Milo Yiannopoulos’s career is in total free-fall today. As you can see from the Publisher’s Weekly tweet above, his book deal with Simon & Schuster has been cancelled. I’m wondering if he’ll still get to keep that $250,000 advance, or if there’s some kind of “morality clause” in his contract?

And that’s not all. Other employees at the far right propaganda site Breitbart “News” are now threatening to resign if Yiannopoulos is not fired.

A senior editor at the right-wing publication tells Washingtonian that “at least a half-dozen” employees are prepared to leave the company if Milo Yiannopoulos is not promptly fired. A second Breitbart source confirms this estimate.

[...]

“The fact of the matter is that there’s been so many things that have been objectionable about Milo over the last couple of years, quite frankly. This is something far more sinister,” the senior editor says. “If the company isn’t willing to act, there are at least half a dozen people who are willing to walk out over it.”

“Talking abut young boys and somehow seeking to ameliorate concerns over young boys’ relationships with older men…I’m pretty sure everyone in the company would vomit upon hearing these words,” the source continues. “What right-thinking person doesn’t feel sick to their stomach when hearing something like that?”

Right. His support for white supremacism, his harassment of women and transgendered people, all of that was fine with Breitbart’s employees — but they draw the line at pedophilia. Nice to know they have standards.
