Alt-right provocateur's controversial book becomes bestseller

Posted: Updated:

Milo Yiannopoulos' controversial book "Dangerous" has now made Amazon's bestseller list.

The book, which was previously scheduled to be released on June 13 by publisher Simon & Schuster, is now going to be self-published. (His resurfaced comments on pedophilia resulted in the publisher cutting ties with him.)

Yiannopoulos was one of the most influential political commentators throughout the Donald Trump presidential campaign, and his speaking engagements at universities--particularly UC Berkely in California--drew national attention and violent protests throughout 2016.

"Dangerous" currently sits at No. 12, which is just behind Kevin Hart's "I Can't Make This Up" at No. 11 and Chelsea Clinton's "She Persisted: 13 Women who changed the world" at No. 9.
