The Breitbart editor and right-wing hypocrite Milo Yiannopolous is not having a good week.
A tape surfaced this week of Milo on a radio show where he condoned pedophilia. He referred to a relationship he had with a “Father Michael,” and he made nasty jokes about it.
Welp, that tape is coming back to bite him in the ass. Simon & Schuster is cancelling the publication of his book, Dangerous.
Simon & Schuster is canceling the publication of 'Dangerous' by Milo Yiannopoulos "After careful consideration." Full story coming soon.

The Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) has pulled its invitation for him to be their keynote speaker.
Matt Schlapp, the chairman of the American Conservative Union, said:
“We initially extended the invitation knowing that the free speech issue on college campuses is a battlefield where we need brave, conservative standard-bearers.”
There are employees at Breitbart who are threatening to leave if Milo isn’t fired. That’s a pretty big deal for it to offend those people.

One editor, who prefers to remain anonymous said:
“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.”
This disgusting douchebag should be fired, and I don’t want to see a pedophile get a $250,000 book deal.
