Milo to sue former publisher for £10m and launch new media venture

HELLRAISER Milo Yiannopoulos has announced he is to sue his former publisher, start his own publishing business and resume his college tours around the US, Juan Woods reports.

It follows a controversial comment that shook the Brit’s career, causing Simon & Schuster to drop his book deal, a resignation from Breitbart News as the tech editor and the pause of his college campus tour.

However, on May 5, Milo hosted a lavish party, ‘Cinco de Milo’, where he made big announcements about his return to the limelight while draped in a giant snake.

Opening the event, he said: “You may have heard a few remarks I’ve made, and the only apology I’ve ever given in my whole life, because it’s the only time I have made a mistake. But, you guys and the American people have stood by me – thank you.

“I am dedicated to the destruction of political correctness. I am committed to the end of censorship. I believe that you should be able to do, say, be anything.”

Having raised more than $12 million, he is devoting himself to suing Simon & Schuster for £10 million in what he is calling “a lot of fun”.

Milo said: “I am suing Simon and Schuster for $10 million. I want to send them a message that they can never again do this to a libertarian or conservative, to a gay guy who believes the wrong things, or to somebody black, somebody disabled or a woman with the wrong opinions.

“I might have well raised $12 million but, who knows, without the, I might have raised £30 million. So, I’m suing them for $10 million, and you’re going to hear a lot about that in the coming weeks.”

The flamboyant 32-year-old then revealed he is starting his own publishing company, Dangerous Books, beginning with his own book, Dangerous, next week.

“We’re also going a step further, I’m not just going to take all of their [Simon and Schuster] best authors, but all the best conservative imprints in this country, and launch my own imprint called Dangerous Books. We are going to publish every mischievous, dissident, hellraising guy you’ve ever heard of,” he added.

Easily-offended college students will have to prepare safe spaces, as Milo will be continuing with his Dangerous Faggot/Troll Academy tours.

Last but by no means least, he spoke about Free Speech Week that he intends to host in the belly of the beast, UC Berkeley.

Milo said: “I am going to stage a week long free speech event at Berkeley, and if the college authorities don’t actively assist in planning it and making it safe for our guests, I will extend it to a month. I’m going to turn UC Berkeley into the home of free speech in America, whether they like it or not. UC Berkeley Free Speech Week in fall will be this movement’s Woodstock.”

He then told guests: “I just want to thank you all for sticking by me and showing up today.”
