around the globe in less than a week

2

We live in a world where a man, hated by many around the globe, announcing his first book resulted in people crying  ‘racist’, ‘sexist’, ‘neo-nazi’, ‘white supremacist’, ‘censor this book’ and ‘boycott the publisher’.

The result of these attacks? The book tops the Best Seller list on Amazon within 24 hours of going on sale, more than two months before it is even released, and it is absolutely glorious to watch. Meanwhile, Hillary’s latest book sold less than 3000 copies in its first week.

I thought that people would have learnt their lesson after the US election, but apparently they still hold faith in the “throw generic insults and attempt to censor anyone with a different opinion” strategy.

Well played to Milo and his publishers Simon and Schuster. You have made all the haters look like fools and will profit nicely on the back of their ineffective tactics.

ryan: dan it’s been 4 days

ryan: how long are you planning to keep this ignoring thing up?

ryan: daaann

ryan: daninator

On the bright side, it’s the most response Dan’s ever managed to get out of Ryan for about three months, although the hypocrisy and borderline fondness of his words make him want to retch.

No. He tells himself. He’s managed four days. He can’t crack now.

He distracts himself by visiting the neglected group chat, and to his surprise Ryan’s chatting perfectly fine to their other friends as opposed to going into hiding until Dan expects another inquisitive message from Max about his whereabouts. He can’t tell if he’s relieved or not by this.

jake: lads

jake: can we all meet up soon

jake: i miss u

Dan’s heart leaps into his throat, coming to the realisation he’d willingly throw himself into the Sun if it meant never having to face Ryan ever again

dan: if it’s before friday then yea

jake: why

max: our old dancing buddy’s off to the other side of the globe that’s why
