Mo. (KFVS) - A publishing company says it’s canceling the upcoming publication of Senator Josh Hawley’s book.

In a statement on Thursday, Simon & Schuster said it “cannot support Senator Hawley after his role in what became a dangerous threat to our democracy and freedom.”

A description of Hawley’s book “The Tyranny of Big Tech” on Simon & Schuster’s website said:

“This book is a revelatory glance at our current policies and how they are failing most Americans every day. Offering clear and concise solutions, Senator Hawley investigates the overwhelming impact these companies have on our daily lives—and what we can do to control it.”

On Twitter, Hawley called the decision “Orwellian” and a “direct assault on the First Amendment.”
