Milo Yiannopoulos’ upcoming book “Dangerous” has reappeared on Amazon and the conservative provocateur will publish it himself after he lost a deal with Simon & Schuster because video surfaced of him discussing and appearing to defend pedophilia.
Earlier this year, a video surfaced in which Yiannopoulos said some relationships between adults and 13-year-olds are consensual. He also joked that being molested had made him good at oral sex. His comments resulted in him being uninvited to speak at CPAC, Simon & Schuster canceling his book deal and led him to down as Breitbart News’ tech editor.
The book’s description reads: “The liberal media machine did everything they could to keep this book out of your hands. Now, finally, ‘Dangerous,’ the most controversial book of the decade, is tearing down safe spaces everywhere.”
Back in February, Yiannopoulos mentioned that other publishers were interested in the book during a press conference announcing his split from Breitbart. However, Amazon lists Dangerous Books as the publisher.
“The book will come out this year as planned, with perhaps an additional chapter,” Yiannopoulos said before adding that he plans to donate 10 percent of proceeds to child abuse charities.
The Amazon page also features some interesting reviews, including fellow conservative commentator Ann Coulter saying, “Fat people will hate this book.”
“If you don’t use your freedom of speech, one day you might find that it’s gone. Buy this book while it’s legal,” tech entrepreneur Peter Thiel said in the review section.
Yiannopoulos — who himself says he was a victim of child molestation — blamed mainstream media for blowing his pedophilia comments out of proportion, but admitted that he is “horrified by pedophilia” and apologized for “imprecise language” during the February press conference.
