Those who suggest anyone in the public eye should not give away hostages to fortune, especially if they might be used against someone in the future, are issuing wise advice. As such, it was most unlikely to be taken on board by repellant man-baby Milo Yiannopoulos, who has thrown a mardy strop at having his book deal cancelled and is now suing the publishers involved for breach of contract. He should be so lucky.
The real Milo Yiannopoulos - an inadequate nobody
Simon & Shuster canned the deal after evidence emerged of Yiannopoulos apparently endorsing paedophilia. He was also unceremoniously sacked from his well-remunerated job with the convocation of the irredeemably batshit otherwise known as Breitbart. He was reduced to self-publishing his book, claiming initial sales of 100,000, only for the actual sales figures of fewer than 20,000 copies to be released, showing his pants well on fire.
But he was not undaunted, and in came the lawsuit, claiming $10 million from the original publisher. The problem has come now that Yiannopoulos’ manuscript has been released - along with the comments made by editors at Simon & Shuster.
The feedback given to The Great Man will not have been read with any sense of enjoyment: “You cannot say this is true of everyone … Not necessarily true … Not true … Don’t make fun of school shooters - and certainly don’t compare them to liberals … This entire paragraph is just repeating Fake News … Avoid gratuitous insults … Unclear, unfunny delete … Delete entire chapter”. And there was more.
Downfall of the fake Milo - and not for the first time
“The ‘Why Establishment Gays Hate Me’ chapter ‘needs a better thesis than the notion that gay people should go back in the closet’ … The feminist chapter needed a ‘stronger argument against feminism than saying that they are ugly and sexless and have cats’ … Delete irrelevant and superfluous ethnic joke … Let’s leave ‘cuck’ out of it here … I will not accept a manuscript that labels an entire class of people ‘mentally ill’”.
It gets worse. “The use of phrases like 'Two-faced backstabbing bitches' diminishes your overall point … This is not the time or place for another black-dick joke … Beauty regimen moved to box at end of chapter, after Nietzsche section”. Beauty regimen? What that?
Ah well. Here we encounter the real vanity and vacuity of this truly worthless being. “I have not drunk tap water since 2005 … My figure has improved dramatically from a year ago … Often I will remove my pyjamas and examine myself for a few minutes in the mirror … my body fat percentage is dropping … I can imagine finding myself attractive in a nightclub”.
Got the sick bucket ready? “In the shower I use a menthol and eucalyptus foaming gel … Because soap can be drying, I apply body butter or Kiehl’s moisturising cream … I use La Mer hand lotion … I use La Prairie skin cream … I enjoy kissing my boyfriend often, so I ensure my lips are plump and soft with a mint or mango lip balm”.
Christ on a bike, what a complete and utter tosser. Milo Yiannopoulos is either devoid of self-awareness, or begging to be laughed out of court. He can’t write competently. He’s got nothing of any interest to say. And he’s still a jumped-up con man.
Simon & Shuster are dead right to defend his worthless lawsuit. Because he’s going to lose the case. Then, perhaps, he might take the hint. And get a life.
