New York University scholar and journalist Summer Brennan is upset Simon & Schuster agreed to publish Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ upcoming “Dangerous” book, while rejecting her biography of a 19th century French lesbian artist.
In a now-deleted tweet posted Friday night, Brennan said, “I’m not boycotting Simon & Schuster, but I’m sad they passed on my biography of a 19th century Parisian lesbian art star badass for Milo.”
Brennan followed up that statement with a series of also now-deleted tweets to let people know another publisher had picked up her biography of French artist Victorine Meurent, but still vented over how Simon & Schuster thought Milo’s book was more marketable than hers.
The NYU scholar has recently taken to portraying herself on Twitter as an active member of the “resistance” against President-elect Donald Trump and even launched a self-proclaimed resistance podcast this month. Earlier on Friday, she accused Trump of treason for praising Russian President Vladimir Putin and urged someone to take action to stop the next president of the United States.
