Homocon Milo Drops Suit Against Simon & Shuster

USA Today reports:

Milo Yiannopoulos is dropping his $10 million lawsuit against his former publisher. In papers filed Tuesday in New York State Supreme Court, Yiannopoulos and Simon & Schuster asked that the case be dismissed “without costs or fees to either party.”

Last fall, a judge allowed the case to proceed after Simon & Schuster had asked that it be dismissed. But in January, Yiannopoulous’ legal counsel withdrew and the author announced that he would represent himself.

“We are pleased that Mr. Yiannopoulos’ lawsuit has been withdrawn, with prejudice, and with no payment,” Simon & Schuster said in a statement Tuesday. “We stand by our decision to terminate the publication of Mr. Yiannopoulos’ book.”

Mediaite mocks:

Milo Yiannopoulos used to have it all. A large Twitter following he could sic on unsuspecting SNL actors. The respect and adoration of Steve Bannon. A forthcoming book filled with all manner of owns on triggered libtards and SJWs.

Then came that video, in which the alt-right firebrand seemingly endorsed pedophilia, and it all came crashing down. He lost his job at Breitbart and became too toxic for even The Daily Caller. The book deal evaporated, with publisher Simon & Schuster abruptly terminating its agreement.

Simon & Schuster has long maintained that his book, subtly titled “Dangerous,” was simply unpublishable — a claim that was bolstered when excerpts leaked, along with scathing editor’s notes, thanks to the aforementioned lawsuit.

          I saw the “new” 5th Dimension a few years ago. I also saw the original group in 1969. The new ensemble is a nice tribute but in no way are they the 5th Dimension. The only original member is Florence.

          • Lars Littlefield

            They were about the only pop group worth anything back in 1968 to 72. And I fucking hate pop music.

          • Sashineb

            I loved them from the moment I first heard Up, Up & Away. Terrific group with really good albums.

  • Joe in PA

    Loser.

  • Treant

    So it only took several months of his own lawyers printing out the morals clause of the contract in 72 point print. He finally got it.

    • clay

      It would make more sense that way, but no, Milo gave up for (unspecified) reasons.

      • Treant

        Oh, trust me, I make no assumptions that Milo has any sense. It’s more likely he ran out of money and gave up as the lawyers are unlikely to work on spec for a case that’s going to lose in court.

        • clay

          (the lawyers had already given up)

          • No lawyers equals no suit. And going up against a corporation? They could easily drown him in motions and other paperwork that it would take an entire floor of paralegals and legal secretaries to keep up with in addition to the lawyers.

          His husband is an even bigger asshole.

    • John30013

      Unfortunately there will always be a desperate homocon somewhere who’ll let him. I’m thinking of Jim Hoft, or anyone in the LCR.

      • Uncle Mark

        Can Hoft even afford to pay Milo after he gets sued for libeling a minor for that the murder in Charlottesville…or will Milo accept payment in hand jobs?

      • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

        Lucien Wintrick or whatever that punchable-faced little prep school fop is.

        Jim Hoft and Milo would make a fine pair. And by fine I mean stuck together on a burning trawler in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico.

      • gothambear

        his buddy super-douche Chadwick Moore the fired editor from Out or the Advocate after he put out the issue with Milo on the cover…he lauds him all the time on Twitter. I watch for sport.

    • Devon Rodriguez

      Maybe he can start a GoFundMe and all the Trump Cultists can send him their disability checks.

    • Nowhereman

      I wonder if he’s still married.

    • Todd20036

      He got an upfront payment to write a piece of garbage that the publishing company had to chalk up as a loss.

      • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

        The publisher wins, however, in proving that they DO have a limited tolerance for assholery.

    So his lawyer quit, and Milo found out that “pro se” doesn’t necessarily equal “prose”.

    If he self-lawyers he can always self-publish, he suggested helpfully. Grammatical errors and misspellings and all.

    • clay

      (already done, last July, not selling particularly well, interesting that the lawsuit was dropped right after the six-months sales figures came out)

    • GanymedeRenard

      He can always be Ann Coulter’s bastard. But then again, that wouldn’t be rebranding. It would be benchmarking.

  • bkmn

    The less I hear about Milo the better.

    • i generally agree, but let’s not forget what he represents: the corruption of our once proud and free press.

      A large Twitter following he could sic on unsuspecting SNL actors. The
      respect and adoration of Steve Bannon. A forthcoming book filled with
      all manner of owns on triggered libtards and SJWs.

      a large twitter following = russian bots
      the respect of bannon = inside connections to the WH/ homocon pedo ring
      a forthcoming book = hand picked to write drivel for the right by editors more interested in the health and wealth of billionaires than in what the general public might actually want to read.

      we’ve called it ‘wingnut welfare’ for a long time now, and this is what it looks like. it’s nice he’s about to fade away, but they will/have quickly found a replacement. that is the scary part to me. the billionaires obviously have so much money, they hardly care when one of their puppets crashes and burns. the problem is how few liberal “elite” voices are willing to talk about how this all works, let alone elevate milo’s far left equiv for contrast. i mean, not to brag or anything, but i’m a far more interesting person and better writer than he is. what would be my chances, if submitted a liberal screed on the order of his? zero, in the “mainstream” publishing world.

    I don’t like when pedophiles try to co-opt the LGBT movement. I am not fighting for adults to have the right to rape/coerce or seduce children.

    Like all homocons, Milo’s agenda is truly inscrutable, but everything I read about him suggests he has no good intentions toward anyone but himself, whatsoever.

    • Moebym of the Returners

      It’s why he loves Trump.

    • Anti Russian American

      He’s a fucking fraud

    • Uncle Mark

      I agree with you, but I doubt that Milo was really planning on championing the pedo cause. Milo has no cause beyond himself, after all.

      He was on a radio show and attempting to be this outrageously, whorish personae he projects, by attempting to make some off-handedly “funny” quip about learning how to suck dick from a priest. He didn’t expect the interviewer to take his “joke” seriously and actually follow-up by asking about its validity. Milo, was too stupid/too vain to admit that it was a made-up sick joke. The follow-up questions meant that either Milo had to accuse some innocent priest…followed up by investigations and possible lawsuits…OR Milo could accept responsibility for initiating this fictional sexual encounter. He was hoping to pass this off as being part of his made-up personae, that he was sooo mature & so whorish at this young age, it was all his fault….but was too dim-witted to see that he was arguing for pedophilia. What’s worse is, if he was able to get away with this made-up excuse for his sick joke, he would probably have found a way to incorporate it in his sick traveling act.

      The wretch lived on his inflated, self-made & hateful perpetuated fictions; it’s only appropriate that he die by them.

      • No Milo was just saying every shocking thing that popped into his had. Dan Savage calls his routine “gayface”. It really is the gay equivalent of blackface. It’s a parody of what bigoted straight people think gay people are like. That’s why his entire audience was alt-right internet trolls. And somehow straight men are mesmerized by that shit. (It’s not a new phenomenon. It dates back at least to the “Nance” routines from vaudeville. Remember when he was on Bill Maher? Maher was enthralled and could hardly think straight to debunk the bullshit that was coming out of his mouth. (Larry Wilmore to his credit was not charmed in the least. Another reason I love Larry and still miss his show.)

        • Uncle Mark

          I was so disgusted by Bill Maher. He had claimed earlier that Milo was nothing more than a provocateur, and that the politically correct just aid & abet his career by falling for his outrageous comments…and then he had Milo on and they spent their one-on-one segment bonding over being banned by Berkeley. It was thoroughly disgusting that Maher abdicated any responsibility for holding Milo’s feet to the fire for the atrocious things he has said. He could have even tried to prove his point that Milo believes in nothing, but promoting himself, but no. Maher was more than normalizing Milo’s behavior, they were practically blowing each other, except on occasion to mock Milo’s flamboyant pseudo-drag. He let Milo insult a number of female comedians, unchecked, until he slammed Sarah Silverman…at which point Maher said that she was a friend of his and moved on from that topic.

          Maher left it to his guests Larry Wilmore & Intelligence Officer Malcolm Nance to be the ones to check Milo’s bad behavior (unfortunately during the less-seen after hour segment.). Wilmore did the job that Maher should have done, putting Milo’s views in flames. Maher even failed to shut Milo down when he directly insulted Wilmore, which earned Milo a “fuck you ” from Wilmore & Nance followed by great applause from the audience, who were disgusted by Milo.

          What was truly disgusting was the couple days when Milo did that radio interview that wrecked his career by inadvertently endorsing pedophilia, Maher took the credit for Milo’s downfall. That moment permanently blemished Maher to me. Frankly, I wonder if he’s not more the smug provocateur, himself. He doesn’t really seem to believe in anything except sex & weed….and he slams this younger generation every chance he gets, which amazes me, as I am finding them quite idealistic…and he stupidly risks alienating a demographic that would listen to him.

          • Yes, Maher is a smug provacateur. His show is only decent when the guests are good. I watched last week because he had on Salman Rushdie who is always good tv. A lot of people have a legit beef with the current practice of banning speakers on college campuses, but Milo offers nothing to those campuses. (Maher not much more but at least his whole act isn’t insulting audience members to the cheers of his fans. WTF.) So of course Maher is playing the enemy of my enemy is my friend. The bedfellows people will make these days, though. Yikes.

    • Steverino

      In other words, a typical malignant narcissist.

    • It’s actually pretty scrutable. at this point. They think that by loudly hating on gay people (and in Milo’s case women too) the right wing (especially their own right wing families) will finally love them. The one thing they all have in common is a deep, irrational hatred for anything and anyone liberal. That’s it. There’s literally nothing else to it. At one time it was about policy differences but they were still fighting for gay rights (Like Log Cabin’s lawsuit over DADT), but that was a decade ago. Now, it’s just homo-hate all the time.

      • BeaverTales

        They can always privately oppose liberals, but Milo is as public and in-your-face as a homocon could ever hope to be.

        I believe it is an attempt to ca$h in on the straight white male privilege that they gave up after being outed and still have some of the perks of being openly gay. It’s also a desire to find an equally delusional husband or BF at one of the rallies.

        But that’s just a guess…only they know for certain.

  • The_Wretched

    “with prejudice, and with no payment,”

    Hah! Milo wasn’t looking forward to losing and losing badly.

    • Halou

      ‘With prejudice..’
      I bet he liked that part of it.

      • clay

        Milo pro’ly thought it meant “with prejudice against the defendant

        uh oh, [sad trombone].

      • The_Wretched

        Hope his lawyer told him it means “no backsies”, you’re done.

        • clay

          • Bad Tom

            Had a fool for a client, he did.

          • The_Wretched

            Ye gods, I’m guessing the judge pulled him aside then.

          • clay

            Oh, no, the judge had ALREADY done that when Milo started asking said judge for legal advice and discovery assistance.

        • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

          But didn’t his counsel bail on him? Like 45, the legal community seems to have circled the wagons against representing numbnuts like these.

          I would loved to have seen Milo attempt to rep himself. He would have spent more time frosting his hair than learning about the law.

  • SkokieGuy / May attempt snark

    Simon & Schuster is not even extending the courtesy of a vague face-saving (for Milo) comment. Like when someone resigns to “spend more time with family”. They publicly humiliated him.

    • Reality.Bites

      He sued them. Why would they let him save face?

      • SkokieGuy / May attempt snark

        Typical corporate double-speak would have been more vague: ‘settled out of court to the satisfaction of both parties’ or ‘The complaint has been withdrawn, we will have no further comment.’

    • Anti Russian American

      Lol

    • It Takes a Village, People

      It seems like he did it to himself with the lawsuit. All of those scathing comments would have stayed in house.

      • SkokieGuy / May attempt snark

        Agreed, he totally brought it on himself. But the fact that he is such a flaming asshole apparently caused Simon & Schuster to breach typical corporate decorum.

        • thatotherjean

          I’m OK with that.

    • Rule 1. This goes for any business or industry. Don’t make the people paying the bills look bad. He did. And out he went. Milo was nothing more than a court jester for bigots. His days were numbers. Frankly I’m surprised he hasn’t ODed yet. I mean that clock is ticking.

  • Note: Joe posted the pedo-enabling clip at least a year before the right decided to use it to take him down. We all knew what he was. The right (Mercers, etc.) were happy to enable him so long as he didn’t crawl out from under the right-wing rock he and his alt-right fans (and lately Dave Rubin) live under. But they weren’t about to let him go mainstream where people who aren’t deplorable would be horrified by his antics, including most conservatives.

    Anyway, there was no basis for his lawsuit. Of course he dropped it. The most he was going to get was a few dollars to make him go away. There’s no way his contract forced them to publish his book even if they decided they didn’t like it. That would be unheard of, especially for a first time author. And after reading a few select pages (with editors notes) that leaked out with the lawsuit papers, it’s no wonder. What shit!
