Milo Yiannopoulos Barred From Entering Australia After Christchurch Attack

Milo Yiannopoulos

Milo Yiannopoulos has once been barred from entering Australia after comments he made on social media regarding Friday’s deadly terror attacks in Christchurch.

Last week, immigration minister David Coleman personally approved his visa, however, he went back on this position yesterday, saying he will no longer be allowed to enter the country.

Calling the Christchurch attack an “act of pure evil”, Coleman said:

“Yiannopoulos’s comments on social media regarding the Christchurch terror attack are appalling and foment hatred and division. The terrorist attack in Christchurch was carried out on Muslims peacefully practicing their religion. Australia stands with New Zealand and with Muslim communities the world over in condemning this inhuman act.”

In social media posts after the attack, Milo Yiannopoulos had referred to Islam as a “barbaric” and “alien” religion, and the news of his visa cancellation has been met with praise.

Labor MP Tony Burke said “good”, adding that there was already enough evidence to bar him from the country, and that “the Australian tours for the world’s hate speakers must stop.”
