Gay right wing speaker Milo Yiannopoulos announces new Australia tour

Controversial gay alt-right speaker, Milo Yiannopoulos, has announced plans to return to Australia for a new five show tour.

The British journalist will arrive in Queensland late November for shows on the Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Violent protests erupted during the conservative right winger’s Troll Academy tour in the country last year. Up to 100 protestors in Sydney chanted ‘Fuck off Nazi’ at the speaker’s show. Police arrested seven people after the protests turned violent.

In Melbourne riot police used batons to keep protesters under control, the Daily Mail reported.

Police bill from last year’s tour not paid

The clashes from last year’s tour generated a police bill of A$50,000, which the Dangerous author has not paid yet.

Lisa Neville, Police Minister for the state of Victoria, told 3AW Radio that they were still trying to persuade Yiannopoulos to pay up.

‘He was presented with a bill, and he hasn’t yet paid it. I know there is discussions going on at the moment with… our government solicitors’, she said.

Yiannopoulos announced the tour on his Facebook page alongside a picture of his face on a tin of eponymously named Aussie chocolate and malt drink ‘Milo’.

The caption reads ‘Accept Only Genuine MILO’ and carries a slightly mis-spelled warning that ‘Inferior product may cause side effects inlcuding(sic) disappointment, depression, anxiety, sleeplessness, boredom, erectile dysfunction, infertility, regret, nipple sensitivity, bladder problems, and anal bleeding’

Yiannopoulos’ incendiary right-wing views have offended equality campaigners and minority groups. Last year he controversially mocked Australian Aboriginal art and the indigenous group’s historic wind instrument, the didgeridoo.

Last month he was forced to defend comments he made about vigilantes shooting journalists, just days before a gunman killed five people at Maryland newspaper the Capital Gazette,

The new tour runs from 29 November until 17 December.
