Twitter’s Having a Great Time Reading the Editor’s Notes on Milo’s Cancelled Book, Like ‘Not the Time for Another Black-Dick Joke’


'You're Going to Have to Employ a Lot More Intellectual Rigor Than You Use Here'

Right wing provocateur, anti-gay gay person, "fellow traveller" with the alt-right, Twitter troll until he was banned, and former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos is suing his publisher, Simon & Schuster, after they cancelled his book deal. One enterprising woman, a software engineer, found the court documents and, realizing the entire manuscript, including the editor's notes are part of the official record, read through them and posted some of the "best" ones to Twitter.

When Yiannopoulos' book, "Dangerous," was cancelled, the prevailing assumption was because of the vile and offensive comments he made in 2015, that resurfaced, in which he defends the statutory rape of teen boys, possibly as young as 13 or 14.

But Simon & Schuster, according to the court documents, sent Yiannopoulos' agent a letter on February 22 stating that his manuscript was "unacceptable for publication."

Sarah Mei, the founder of a community for software engineers like herself, posted these editor's notes to Twitter. They are astonishing and astounding. Among them, "This is not the time or place for another Black-dick joke," and, "This is definitely not the pace [sic] for more of your narcissism."

And, this:

"This entire section is the most poorly-thought out section of the book. If you want to make the case for gay men going back in the closet and marrying women just to have children, you're going to have to employ a lot more intellectual rigor than you use here."

Apparently, Milo thinks ugly people hate him. 

"This entire paragraph is just repeating Fake News."

Mei posted many more excerpts, you can see them on her Twitter page. 

Many people on Twitter are having a great time reading them - a few examples:

Oh, and rightly, Mei is being lauded as a hero:

For those unfamiliar with Milo, here's a video he posted this week:
