Alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos sued publishing company Simon & Schuster for breach of contract for canceling the publication of his book, “Dangerous,” in July.

Last week, the publishing company submitted documents to the New York County Court to support their claim that the manuscript had substantial problems —
before the public outcry surrounding Yiannopoulos's book deal. Among these documents was an early copy of “Dangerous,” along with notes from editor Mitchell Ivers.

According to his biography on Simon & Schuster, Ivers has edited the books of many influential conservatives, including former Vice President Dick Cheney, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and even Donald Trump.

And in a now-deleted tweet he posted yesterday, Ivers retweeted a criticism of Milo’s draft.

By a certain point, the editor seems to have lost all patience with Milo.

And here’s a wrap-up letter, included in the court filings, where Ivers says about the “feminist chapter”: “you will need
to develop a stronger argument against feminism than saying that they are ugly and sexless and have cats,” among other notes.

“‘Don’t quote me but you done good’ is what Simon & Schuster told me about my manuscript barely two days before dumping my book in February in breach of contract. S&S executives also quoted Hollywood agents who said I’d shift half a million copies and agreed with me about the ‘virtue-signaling’ Left.”

He also included screenshots of what he said were messages exchanged between him in Ivers in February, before his book deal was cancelled:
