4. Evidence in the ongoing court case between publisher Simon & Schuster and gay former Breitbart writer Milo Yiannopoulous has surfaced online, including pithy notes made by the original editor of the book. Yiannopoulous is suing S&S for $10 million after they halted publication of his memoir due to controversial comments he made about pedophilia. Among the editor’s notes: “No need to drag the lesbians into this! And DON’T use lesbian as a slur!” and “If you want to make a case for gay men going back into the closet and marrying women just to have children, you’re going to have to employ a lot more intellectual rigor than you use here.”
