On Monday evening, The New Yorker announced that Bannon wouldn't be welcome at the festival after all. Festival participants like Judd Apatow, Jim Carrey, John Mulaney, Patton Oswalt, Bo Burnham, and Lena Dunham's ex-boyfriend all announced that they would be canceling in light of Bannon's invitation.
Remnick said that interviewing Bannon wasn't the same as endorsing him.
- Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) September 3, 2018I'm out. "In what I would call a defining moment, David Remnick showed he was gutless when confronted by the howling online mob", he said.
Before his role with the Trump campaign, Mr Bannon helped found Breitbart News - a right-wing United States online news and commentary website.
Remnick also outlined why Bannon was included in the first place.
Apatow said he would not take part in an event that "normalizes hate" and suggested the New Yorker read its own reporting on Bannon. "The point of an interview, a rigorous interview, particularly in a case like this, is to put pressure on the views of the person being questioned". Now, New Yorker is selling tickets to see him headline.
'I've thought this through and talked to colleagues - and I've re-considered.

For anyone who wonders what normalization of bigotry looks like, please look no further than Steve Bannon being invited by both @TheEconomist & @NewYorker to their respective events in #NYC a few weeks apart.
Remnick had sought out Steve Bannon for a podcast interview, according to CNN's Reliable Sources. In a statement released on Twitter, David Remnick, the magazine's editor, said he had changed his mind after facing criticism on social media.
"I'm out", Fallon tweeted before the cancellation news went viral.
Author Roxane Gay offered an unvarnished view on Twitter: Inviting Bannon "demonstrates how the intellectual class doesn't truly understand racism or xenophobia". I am not so fragile in my beliefs that Steve Bannon or Milo or any one of their ilk will be able to convince me that we should build the wall or lock her up, but if you don't want to be exposed to unsafe ideas, I'm sure Bo Burnham's talk will be a nice, safe space. He clearly planned to make this a tough, revelatory session. He added, "I have the freedom to refuse to share a festival with him".
"I would like to invite you to sit down with me for an informal, free-ranging discussion of the political movements redefining global and local politics".
