Tuesday, February 21, 2017

If you disagree with Milo Yiannopoulos then you should either ignore him or challenge him, according to the deputy editor of Spiked, the online politics and culture magazine that promotes free speech. 

Book publisher Simon and Schuster have cancelled the release of memoirs written by Milo Yiannopoulos, after he appeared to endorse paedophilia in recent remarks.

Tom Slater, deputy editor at Spiked Online, told Sam Delaney: “We all know why he got that book deal in the first place – it was because people recognised he was a phenomenon.

“His profile grows in proportion to how much people are upset," he added.

“Someone like Milo, if you disagree with him, challenge him; if you think he’s a wind-up merchant without a cause, ignore him."
