Washington, Feb 21 (IANS) British writer Milo Yiannopoulos' book "Dangerous" was axed after Republican conservatives released video clips which seemed to condone sex between men and boys.
"After careful consideration, Simon & Schuster and its Threshold Editions imprint have cancelled publication of 'Dangerous'," USA Today quoted the publisher as saying.
Confirming this, Milo said: "They cancelled my book."
The gay British writer, who has collected kudos as a self-described "dangerous" provocateur, teetered on the edge of disaster on Monday after the videos of the book got released.
The author is heard talking about his own past as a teenager who had sex with men and suggested that some boys might be old enough to give consent to such sexual relationships, USA Today said.
