Hawley’s book “The Tyranny of Big Tech” was due to be published in June, which is no longer the case, as he is accused of inciting the mob that stormed the capital on Wednesday.
“We did not come to this decision lightly,” said Simon & Schuster in a statement. “As publishers, our mission will always be to reinforce a variety of voices and viewpoints: At the same time, we take our greater public responsibility as citizens seriously and cannot support Senator Hawley after his role in a dangerous threat.”
