Milo Yiannopouloss Dangerous book sells 152 copies in the UK

  3. Milo Yiannopouloss Dangerous book sells 152 copies in the UK
Darmik 3 days ago#1
Controversial right-wing figure Milo Yiannopoulos has sold just 152 copies of his book “Dangerous” in the UK after many of his alt right supporters cut ties with him. 

The book sold 18,000 copies in the United States despite debuting at number one for a day on Amazon’s non-fiction chart, according to Nielsen Bookscan. That is less than a fifth of the figure Yiannopoulos’ PR team has claimed. 

The surprising way to deal with nasty online comments The British blogger, who rose to prominence as a loud pro-Trump voice in the US, self-published the memoir after his original book deal fell through in February. 

Comments he made about child abuse led to the loss of his Simon & Schuster contract, as well as his job at Breitbart. His Twitter account has long been suspended due to his involvement in abuse of high-profile women including Ghostbusters’ Leslie Jones.

Not enough copies

Despite his dip in profile, he claims that the book has sold more than 100,000 copies, explaining away the delay in Nielsen’s count as down to the fact that booksellers hadn’t ordered enough copies to keep up with demand. “By now, you may have heard reports claiming we only sold 18,000 copies of Dangerous and that our 100,000 copies claim is exaggerated. I’m happy to report that this is fake news,” he said. By comparison British vlogger Zoella broke the record for debut author first-week sales in 2014, shifting 78,000 copies of Girl Online. Sales in the UK were even more disappointing as the author’s US cult of personality failed to translate to his home country. Yiannopoulos worked for the Daily Telegraph and founded his own tech journalism site here before shifting his attention across the Atlantic.

I find that hard to believe, as his book reached #5 on Amazon alone this week (https://www.amazon.com/charts/2017-07-09/mostsold/nonfiction). Also has a .2 higher rate that Degrasse's #3. So if Milo is totally bombing, it's safe to say the other top sold books aren't too far behind. It's fake news. 

Also, take a look at the guy writing the article in OP.

And even if the fake news is true, 18,000 copies sold in one week is nothing to dismiss.

That doesn't mean much when you see that it's in its second week and the books beating it are in their 5th-9th week.

He literally posted clearly fake screenshots of her saying anti white and anti semitic comments in an attempt to get more idiots to attack her. For someone who headed a "news" organization if he actually believed those were real he was a dumb ass who couldn't even do a basic search to find they're fake making him one of the dumbest mother f***ers in "news" or politics on the internet or B) he actually had a functioning brain cell and knew they were fake but posted them anyways to make her seem racist against whites and jews and send a mob after her. Sorry but that's not "free speech", that's libel and slander and it's never been covered by the first amendment and never will be.

So which is it? Is he a complete moron for not knowing or is he a complete moron for knowingly doing something that stupid?

Neil Degrasse is #3 and Milo is #5. Sure, Degrasse has been on the list longer, but he's also been some publicized and advertised for years. He's on Netflix, etc. Milo is being stifled, yet still able to compete. I think the 18,000 number is fake news. Milo is literally #5 on Amazon non-fiction. And that's just Amazon.

The numbers are from Nielsen Bookscan that monitor several bookstores including Amazon. 

Milo even admitted it was true but tried to write it off that it was because they didn't order enough copies.

While I don't find his "criticism" of Ghostbusters and whatever else to be relevant, he most certainly deserved the backlash he received for those stupid comments he made about both the gay community and pedophilia.
