The Morrison government has banned right-wing celebrity Milo Yiannopoulos from entering Australia in a fresh crackdown likely to infuriate his conservative supporters but please critics who believe he is anti-Semitic, despite the fact that he is Jewish.
Conservative Paerty leader Cory Bernardi says he can't understand why Milo was banned from coming here.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports, the controversial speaker was told this week his visa application had been rejected and he cannot enter Australia.
He has a month to appeal the Department of Home Affairs decision, which was made on character grounds.
In June last year Paypal suspended Milo after he used the online payment system to send $14.88 to a Jewish journalist.
The number 1488 is used by white supremacists and neo-Nazis because '14' represents the mantra of securing a future for white children and '88' represents "Heil Hitler".
The same month he sent threatening text messages to journalists, stating: "I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight."
The 33-year-old confirmed he wrote the messages but said that he sent them to the reporters as a way to troll them.
Senator Bernardi has told Peta Credlin on Sky News he doesn't think Milo has done enough to be banned.
