Milo Yiannopoulos’ Book Might Be More ‘Boring’ Than ‘Dangerous’

Right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos doesn’t have much to crow about. At least, that’s according to BuzzFeed, which acquired an exclusive early draft of his forthcoming memoir “Dangerous.”

According to BuzzFeed, the book draft contains little about Yiannopoulos’ personal life, his role in last year’s presidential campaign or even his work at Breitbart, where he was formerly a tech editor.

Instead, there’s a parade of insults, with chapter titles including: “Why Other Gay People Hate Me,” “Why Feminists Hate Me,” “Why Muslims Hate Me” and “Why Black Lives Matter Hates Me,” among others. The British pundit is openly gay and refers to President Trump as “Daddy.”

According to BuzzFeed, Yiannopoulos also makes a racially insensitive gag about his much-remarked sexual affinity for black men. “I’ve lost count of the number of black youths I’ve lifted out of poverty. Admittedly, I send them back the next day in an UberLux,” the draft is said to read.

Simon & Schuster dropped the title in February after the resurfacing of old comments in which Yiannopoulos defended pedophilia.

Yiannopoulos subsequently decided to release the book through his own publishing imprint and has emerged from maintaining a lower profile in the past few months. He appeared at a May rally in New York protesting Muslim civil rights activist Linda Sarsour.
