The Breitbart News editor’s book deal was canceled after comments Yiannopolous appeared to make about pedophilia surfaced online.
“After careful consideration, Simon & Schuster and its Threshold Editions imprint have canceled publication of Dangerous by Milo Yiannopoulos,” the publisher said in a statement released Monday.
Yiannopoulos also shared the news on Facebook Monday, writing, “They canceled my book.”
The controversial conservative reportedly had a $250,000 deal with the right-leaning imprint for his book, which was slated for release in June, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
