You’ll Laugh at the Exasperated Editorial Notes on Milo Yiannopoulos’ Literary Masterpiece

In 2017 toxic alt-right douchebag Milo Yiannopoulos had his book deal trashed and got booted from the far-right website Breitbart over his comments supporting child rape. He also got re-banned from Twitter, was exposed for working with white supremacists and was revealed as a plagiarist of Tori Amos and thrower of sad birthday parties. But someone just added some sweet icing onto his delicious fail-cake by releasing the editor’s notes of his cancelled book Dangerous. The Yiannopoulos editorial notes include such valuable feedback as “This is not the time or place for another black-dick joke.”

 

Why the Yiannopoulos editorial notes leaked at this particular time

A little background: In December 2016, the publishing company Simon and Schuster gave Yiannopoulos a book deal. Then, in February 2017, a conservative group called the Reagan Battalion uncovered an old interview in which Yiannopoulos express gratitude for his being molested by a Catholic priest at age 13. In the interview, Yiannopoulos said, “I’m grateful for Father Michael. I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him.”

After the interview surfaced, Simon and Schuster cancelled his book deal. Yiannopoulos sued Simon & Schuster over an alleged breach of contract, claiming that the company rejected his book over his pro-child rape comments. But the publishing company’s court documents allege that his manuscript was simply “unacceptable for publication.”

A woman named Sarah Mei, who is also the founder of a community for software engineers, somehow got a hold of the an edited version of Yiannopoulos’ book and posted the editor’s notes to Twitter. Each note from Yiannopoulos’ editor gets increasingly exasperated at his intellectual flabbiness and adolescent “humor.”

Some of the editor’s comments are just notes like, “UGH,” “DELETE” and “This section feels phenomenally petty.” One particularly insightful note however mentions that a section needs “a stronger argument against feminism than saying that they are ugly and sexless and have cats.”

One great note also says, “This entire paragraph is just repeating Fake News. There was NO blood. NO semen and there was NO Satanism. Delete.” — a reference to a far-right Hillary Clinton non-troversy.

Another golden nugget of editorial feedback mentions, “The use of a phrase like ‘two-faced backstabbing bitches’ diminishes your overall point.”

 

There’s a grim reality about the Yiannopoulos editorial notes, however….

But lest we find the entire thing too humorous, New York magazine writer E. Alex Jung reminds us that Yiannopoulos’ editor “was essentially trying to make white supremacy, misogyny and homophobia publishable.”

Basically, if the editor had been able to polish Yiannopoulos’ turd, Simon and Schuster would’ve published the rantings of a racist transphobe, made money off of it and none of us would be laughing.
