Milo Yiannopoulos will donate $2,100 to Pauline Hanson’s One Nation party after he raised the money auctioning a shoe thrown at him by a protester.
A protester was dragged out of Yiannopoulos’ Sydney show in Lilyfiled on Tuesday night after he threw a black dress shoe at the right-wing firebrand.
Yiannopoulos, who came to Australia for his Troll Academy Tour, fetched a whopping $2,100 when he auctioned the shoe on Wednesday.
He is expected to donate the money to Pauline Hanson’s One Nation party, after he and the Queensland Senator became fast friends on Tuesday.
The self-described ‘troll’ and ‘provocateur’ posted a photo of himself sharing lunch with Ms Hanson to his 300 thousand followers on Instagram on Tuesday.
Alongside the photo, which shows the pair grinning into the camera, Yiannopoulos referred to the Queensland Senator as his ‘big sister’.
‘Lunch with big sis Senator Pauline Hanson. How did this much fabulous end up in Parliament House? Please explain,’ Yiannopoulos said.
His fans fawned over the photo and praised the pair, who have both courted controversy for their right-wing political beliefs.
‘So much awesome in one photo,’ one supporter said.
‘Name a more iconic duo,’ one said, while another urged them to ‘keep up the good fight’.
Milo Yiannopoulos appeared to leave a lasting impression on Ms Hanson, with the Queensland Senator praising him on Wednesday.
Speaking to Andrew Bolt on The Bolt Report on Wednesday, Senator Hanson said ‘Milo reflects what I believe in’.
‘You’ve got to stand up to those who want to put you down, if you have a difference of opinion, you have a right to have that opinion,’ she said.
Senator Hanson also called out the ‘aggressive’ left.
‘The left of politics are so abusive, aggressive and nasty,’ she said.
‘They feel that if you think anything differently to what they do, they’ve got to shut you down.’
Senator Hanson’s comments come after left-wing protesters demonstrated against Yiannopoulos outside of his shows in Melbourne and Sydney this week.
Left-wing protesters lined the streets in Kensington, Melbourne on Monday night, and Lilyfield in Sydney on Tuesday, to protest Yiannopoulos’ speaking tour.
Left-wing protesters and counter-protesters lined the streets outside, hurling insults at one another.
Police were forced to use capsicum spray on Monday night to subdue protesters when the demonstration turned violent.
Four people were arrested the following night in Sydney, where one person threw his shoe at Yiannopoulos as he sat in the crowd of his sold-out show.
