If 2016 has taught us anything, it’s that life isn’t as fair as we were taught as kids, and Milo Yiannopoulos is living proof.
The racist online troll, who was banned from Twitter for igniting a massive wave of harassment against actress Leslie Jones, has just landed a $250,000 book deal with Threshold Editions, says The Hollywood Reporter. According to a spokesperson from the company, it will be publishing Yiannopoulos’ autobiographical book, Dangerous, on March 14, 2017.
The Breitbart News staffer told reporters, “They said banning me from Twitter would finish me off. Just as I predicted, the opposite has happened. Did it hurt Madonna being banned from MTV in the 1990s? Did all that negative press hurt Donald Trump’s chances of winning the election?”
Since his Twitter ban, Yiannopoulos has been on a college tour, including a stop at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, where he openly mocked a transgender student. He is also filming the tour, entitled “Dangerous F—t Tour,” for a feature-length documentary film. Although he’s considered an “alt-right” hero, he says he doesn’t consider that to be his political position.
What a time to be alive.
