Milo Yiannopoulos Lands $250K Simon & Schuster Book Deal
Alt-right white nationalist Milo Yiannopoulos has landed a book deal worth $250,000 with Simon & Schuster, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “They said banning me from Twitter would finish me off. Just as I predicted, the opposite has happened,” he said. Yiannopoulos was permanently banned from the social-media platform for provoking his followers into harrassing actress Leslie Jones. The book will reportedly be an autobiography of the Breitbart writer. “I met with top execs at Simon & Schuster in the year and spent half an hour trying to shock them with lewd jokes and outrageous opinions. I thought they were going to have me escorted from the building—but instead they offered me a wheelbarrow full of money," Yiannopoulos added.
