Milo Yiannopoulos’ Net Worth & How His Life Has Changed Since He Was Fired
There are so many controversial figures on the right that it’s easy to forget certain former household names when they leave the regular public conversation. Milo Yiannopoulos is one such person. Though he hasn’t been a part of the usual discussions as of late, Yiannopoulos has found a way to make the occasional headline, although certainly not in the ways he might like to. Recently, the question of his financial situation came to light. Here’s what we know about Yiannopoulos these days, including his supposed net worth.
Who is Milo Yiannopoulos?
Known as a journalist by trade, Yiannopoulos is primarily known for his hateful actions. He covered Gamergate, airing on the side of the supporters. From there, he joined Breitbart, a far-right leaning publication that has been cited for making up stories. Yiannopoulos has been linked to numerous controversies, including the UK’s “No Platform” policy, as well as his association with white nationalists and neo-Nazis.
After being suspended twice prior, Yiannopoulos was permanently banned from Twitter in 2016, largely due to his comments against Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones. In 2017, he was fired from Breitbart and, later, The Daily Caller, due to flippant comments her made about paedophilia. He also wrote a book, Dangerous.
What Yiannopoulos’ net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Yiannopoulos’ net worth is somewhere around $4 million, however, based on the description, this likely isn’t taking into account his unemployment over the last year or so. Unless he has some major deals in the works, or some very expensive properties, Yiannopoulos’ net worth has probably not increased, only decreased.
He is auctioning off his possessions on Instagram
One reason to believe the Yiannopoulos isn’t doing as well as his net worth might suggest is that he has taken to auctioning off personal items on Instagram. As The Daily Beast reporter Will Sommer shared on Twitter, the controversial figure has posted an image of a large print of himself, which he is selling to the “highest offer.” According to Yiannopoulos’ caption, he is “moving house,” which could be another indication that his finances aren’t in great shape, if he is downgrading.
Yiannopoulos was reportedly banned from Australia
Never one to be without at least a small scandal following him, it has been reported that Yiannopoulos was banned from Australia. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, a Department of Home Affairs letter from the Australian government was issued, stating that he didn’t pass a “character test” that would grant him entry into the country under the Migration Act.
However, this decision was later rescinded. Sky News host Andrew Bolt said of the matter, “This whole thing has just been so pathetic. Banning him wouldn’t have just stripped his right to speak from him, but the right of 26 million Australians to decide who they listen to.”
Here’s what Yiannopoulos is up to these days
According to his own Instagram account (the bio for which reads “Make America Great Again” in Russian), Yiannopoulos has been keeping busy commenting on the news, selling t-shirts to support Roger Stone, and sharing photos of his ‘90s boy band-era throwback hair. He does frequently talk about money, posting his new impossibly hard-to-obtain Cal Alumni Association branded Visa debit card and tallying up his supposed earnings while flying coach. Chances are we’ll likely never know his exact wealth, but we’re sure he’ll let us know when he scores a big payday for selling his sunglass collection.
