Milo Yiannopoulos’s new book Dangerous is already at number two on the New York Times bestseller list and yet Barnes & Noble refuses to put it on its shelves.
On Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM, the conservative firebrand told listeners that despite the success of the book, some bookstores are locking him out and it appears it’s for political reasons:
“Barnes and Noble will not stock the book. And our distributor has told us, in writing specifically, that decision is almost certainly political, which is an incredible thing. It’s number 2 on the New York Times Bestseller List and, Barnes and Noble won’t put it in their stores. It’s been out of stock everywhere for weeks and at some point you have to ask why these retailers aren’t ordering enough copies for their own customers.”
As Yiannopoulos told the David Horowitz Freedom Center it’s a problem in several other bookstores, as well:
“But you should hear some of the horror stories from the frontlines. Indie book stores refusing to order the book, because they won't support hate speech. Well, we are, nonetheless, cruising towards 10,000 copies dispatched to indie book stores. Now, I like to believe that that's roughly equivalent to 10,000 bloated, facially pierced, blue-haired feminist monstrosities crying into their Ben & Jerry's. Because they were forced to type the words 'Milo Yiannopoulos dangerous' into their computer, and press order.”
However, Yiannopoulos remains optimistic that things will turn around.
“Now, I'm not going to name and shame anybody, because I still have this silly, vain hope that I might one day walk into Barnes & Noble and see them actually catering to consumer demand,” he said. “I do hold out some hope that common sense will prevail.”
Dangerous is in stock at Amazon.
