Milo Suing Simon & Shuster for $10 Million
More than two months after his very public downfall over past comments he made that were seen as a defense of pedophilia, conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has slowly worked himself back into the public eye. Late last month, he announced he had raised $12 million for a new media venture of his, Milo Inc. He’s described the company as a way to make progressives’ lives a “living hell.”
At a party last night in Miami, the former Breitbart editor delivered a couple of new bits of info related to this undertaking — he’s suing a book publisher and he’s creating a publishing arm so his latest book can get printed.
One of the casualties from the unearthing of his pro-pedophilia remarks was Simon & Schuster canceling publication of ‘Dangerous,’ the book he had received a huge upfront fee from the publisher to write. Well, Milo said last night that he’s now going to sue them for big bucks.
“I am suing Simon & Schuster for $10 million,” he told his audience, live streamed on YouTube. “I want to send them a message that they can never again do this to a libertarian or a conservative.”
He also pointed out that ‘Dangerous’ will now be published through Dangerous Books, which is part of Milo Inc.
