Leftist journalist Eric Limer’s recent attempt to shame a man who was reading DANGEROUS on the subway has backfired horrifically, with insults being thrown on Twitter and said DANGEROUS reader achieving internet fame.
On Friday, Limer tweeted “I bet this guy is real cool,” along with a photo of a sharply-dressed man with his head buried in a copy of DANGEROUS by MILO.

MILO himself was very quick to respond, issuing a call on Instagram for the DANGEROUS reader to come forward.
The man ultimately did come forward and was treated to a bottle of champagne from MILO himself.
A piece of shit journalist called Eric Limer (formerly of Gizmodo, lmfao) tried to publicly shame a private citizen for…
Amid the flurry of attention, many people have taken to Limer’s tweet to lash out at the Popular Mechanics deputy editor.
because he's choosing to read a book? how do you know he agrees with anything in it regardless and isn't just curious lmfao

Omg how miserable do you have to be in order to publicly shame a stranger for reading a book you don't agree with? Get a life.

He's probably cooler than the guy who has nothing better to do than take pictures of someone and mock them online.

I am repelled by you. This demonstrates an emotional age of 12 and a mean, regressed 12 at that.

He is reading a book instead of composing 140 character sentence. Pretty awesome

Glad you felt necessary to shame someone because they're doing something you thought was uncool. My 7 year old knows better.

In other DANGEROUS news, Barnes & Noble is coming under fire for its refusal to stock MILO’s debut book.
Shoppers who attempt to get their hands on the book are finding that, while Barnes & Noble has plenty of copies in warehouses, getting one in-store is impossible.
