Milo Yiannopoulos autobiography cancelled by publisher after outrage over child abuse comments

Milo Yiannopoulos lost his $250,000 book deal on Monday after video was leaked that showed the alt-right poster boy appearing to defend pedophilia.

Publisher Simon & Schuster said: 'After careful consideration, Simon & Schuster and its Threshold Editions imprint have canceled publication of Dangerous by Milo Yiannopoulos.'
'Dangerous' was set to be published under Threshold Editions, the conservative branch of the publisher according to USA Today.

Simon & Schuster has cancelled publication of a book by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos  after edited video clips purporting to show him discussing sex between "young boys" and older men set social media alight.

"They have cancelled my book," Mr Yiannopoulos wrote in a Facebook post on Monday night. "I've gone through worse. This will not defeat me."
The book is the third that Mr Yiannopoulos has announced that has not eventuated. It was reportedly secured with a US$250,000 (£200,000) advance.
