Regardless of what you think about Milo Yiannopoulos, the interest in his forthcoming book, Dangerous has been enormous.
According to Milo, there have been 65,000 preorders for his controversial book, Dangerous. This is despite no interviews carried by the mainstream media. Taking to social media to unveil a huge advert for the book, the writer said, “65,000 preorders and counting. Number of mainstream media interviews: zero”.
The advert was placed just one block away from his former publisher’s offices.
The book is now being published by “Dangerous Books” after it was pulled by Simon and Schuster following a controversy over comments made by Milo, over child abuse. A statement from the publisher said, “After careful consideration, Simon & Schuster and its Threshold Editions imprint have cancelled publication of Dangerous by Milo Yiannopoulos.”
Within weeks the right-wing commentator said that he had managed to secure $12 million in investment for a new media venture. In a statement, the former Breitbart writer said that he had formed a new media company, called MILO inc, and said that the venture had attracted $12 million in investment. The funding has come from undisclosed investors.
