The Tell: Simon & Schuster cancels book deal with Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos

Simon & Schuster canceled its book deal with the conservative provocateur and Breitbart columnist Milo Yiannopoulos, the company said Monday.

“After careful consideration, Simon & Schuster and its Threshold Editions imprint have cancelled publication of ‘Dangerous’ by Milo Yiannopoulos,” the publishing company said in a statement.

The book was due to be released in March. Yiannopoulos, who was previously permanently banned from Twitter TWTR, +1.65% last year for his role in harassing comedian and actress Leslie Jones, reportedly received a book advance in the mid-six figures.

The Conservative Political Action Conference this weekend disinvited Yiannopoulos from its upcoming conference in Washington, D.C.
