Fox FM pulls $10k worth of ads promoting alt-right commentator Milo Yiannopoulos
On-air advertisements from Penthouse Magazine totalling $10,000 have been banned by Melbourne’s Fox FM.
The radio ads promoting controversial political commentator Milo Yiannopoulos’s second Melbourne speaking engagement have been pulled, with Hit Network head of content Gemma Fordham judging the content “too off-brand”.
“We are getting a number of complaints,” she added.
Damien Costas, Penthouse Magazine publisher and promoter of the national tour featuring Yiannopoulos, could hardly contain himself in reacting the news.
“I can’t believe it! What will they do if one of their announcers dares to go to see Milo at his show? Ban them too?”
“Be warned Fox FM that one of your new 2018 drive time team is coming as a special guest to meet Milo in Melbourne.”
