Who is Milo Yiannopoulos?
Born Milo Hanrahan on the 18th of October 1984, in Kent, England, Milo Yiannopoulos, also known by the pen name of Milo Andreas Wagner, is a Caucasian political commentator, journalist and author of Irish, Greek and Jewish descent. He is perhaps best known for being the self-described ‘cultural libertarian’ in the position of senior editor for “Breitbart News”, where his words and opinions have attracted significant publicity. Other than that, he has made various appearances in the media, both personally and through his writing, during which he frequently makes extremely controversial statements. He has been active in the sometimes lucrative writing business since 2007.
Early Life and Education
Milo is generally known as one of the most controversial celebrities – he has thus far addressed almost all of the generally taboo subjects, including gay rights, feminism and even pedophilia. Although often negative, all of these statements have surely contributed to the fame he nowadays enjoys. Firstly, he stated that ‘gay rights have made us dumber’, even though he himself is openly gay. The reason for this, according to his words, is that ‘homosexuals have been massively over-represented in history’, and he went on to add that ‘gays should get back in the closet, since being gay is aberrant and a choice guaranteed to bring gays pain and unhappiness’.
Milo has made numerous remarks about his affection for African-American males throughout his career. It is then no surprise that he eventually married one, specifically a man named John with an as of yet unknown surname. The wedding took place in September 2017 at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai on Hawaii’s biggest island, with the face of his partner seemingly covered in all of the wedding pictures, further shrouding his identity in mystery.
What is Milo Yiannopoulos’ Net Worth?
Have you ever wondered how rich Milo Yiannopoulos is, as of early 2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Milo’s accumulated wealth is close to $15 million, largely aided by his numerous successes in the news industry, the greatest contribution coming from his long-term controversial presence in the media. As his career continues to develop, the said amount can be expected to increase.
Concerning the physical attributes of the aspiring writer, it is reputed by various sources that his height stands at 6ft 2ins (1.88m) and the writer’s body weight is 136 lbs (62kg). His body type is generally described as slim, while his hair color is brown and his foot size is 14.
Social Media Presence
Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active writers to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the news companies they’re working for, and thus their own net worth. Milo himself seems to be a major subscriber, if not the leading example of this trend, as he is quite ubiquitous on most social media networks. First of all, his Facebook account currently has slightly over 2.5 millon followers, while his Twitter account did enjoy massive popularity at some point, but received a permanent ban mid-2016 due to Milo’s apparently extremely controversial remarks about various supposedly taboo subjects. Last but not least, his Instagram account is actively followed by a significantly smaller 350,000 fans at the moment.
