New Yorker Disinvites Steve Bannon From Festival Amid Backlash


Steve Bannon is no longer appearing at this year’s New Yorker Festival.

The magazine’s editor in chief David Remnick sent this note to his staff.

It was announced early Monday that the Trump ally would be headlining the annual festival and would be interviewed by Remnick, which sparked outrage among its readers.

Several guest speakers who had announced their withdrawal from the event, including Judd Apatow, Jim Carrey, John Mulaney, and Jack Antonoff, if Bannon’s invitation was still honored.
