At Simon & Schuster we have always published books by a wide range of authors with greatly varying, and frequently controversial opinions, and appealed to many different audiences of readers.
On Tuesday night, The Bookseller reported that the publisher's United Kingdom arm would not be publishing the book.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news of the deal, Yiannopoulos was paid $250,000 for the book, which will be published by Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster in the US.
In fact, the backlash was so overwhelming that Simon & Schuster issued a rare statement about the controversy on Twitter, which, hypocritically, stated that while they "do not and never have condoned discrimination or hate speech in any form", they stand by their decision to ship Yiannopoulos under a flimsy multiplicity of opinions defense.
The upcoming book, Dangerous, was propelled to Amazon's Best Seller list, even though it will not be released until March. It has not yet responded to the Standard's request for comment. Just as I predicted, the opposite has happened'.
Mr Yiannopoulos previously said: "I met with top execs at Simon & Schuster earlier in the year and spent half an hour trying to shock them with lewd jokes and outrageous opinions".
The British branch of Simon and Schuster will not publish unsafe, the upcoming book by provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos. He said he "thought they were going to have me escorted from the building - but instead they offered me a wheelbarrow of money". Although some have criticized Morgan's decision as anti-free speech, Morgan sees is as the flawless exercise of his First Amendment rights.
Writers like Sarah Silverman, Rainbow Rowell and Danielle Henderson also spoke out against the deal, but that is not stopping the Breitbart News editor who is continuing his fight for freedom of speech by publishing a book about free speech.
Yiannopoulos has denied being a member of the Alt Right but became its de facto spokesman in the wake of GamerGate, which saw the sustained online harassment of a female game developer and other women in gaming.
