Gay internet troll Milo Yiannopoulos has claimed that lesbians are “not real”.

Yiannopoulos, a gay ultra-conservative, has earned a large following online as a prominent supporter of Donald Trump and as a ‘hero’ of the far-right.

The former columnist and semi-professional internet troll, who was banned from Twitter for allegedly encouraging racist abuse, has previously claimed he would ‘cure’ himself of being gay if he could, and described trans people as “mentally ill gay men dressing up for attention”.

On his online store, the figure is now taking aim at lesbians.

Yiannopoulos is selling t-shirts bearing the phrase ‘LESBIANS AREN’T REAL’.

The website explains: “Lesbians aren’t real, they are just (even more) confused straight women!”

Another t-shirt bears the slogan ‘STOP BEING GAY’, with the description reading: “Have sex with all the men you want, but stop being a whining baby!”

The columnist allegedly tied the knot over the weekend,

He was banned from Twitter last year after allegedly encouraging a wave of racist abuse directed at Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones, while he also took advantage of a university speech on his ‘Dangerous Faggot’ lecture tour to single out and bully a transgender student on-stage.

Yiannopoulos was sacked from Breitbart earlier this year after damaging tapes emerged in which he discussed men who have sex with underage boys.

In one video, Yiannopoulos attacks the age of consent as an “arbitrary one-size-fits-all policing of culture”.

He also claimed that “in the homosexual world, particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men (…) help those young boys discover who they are”.

Yiannopoulos later confirmed he would be “resigning” from Breitbart in the wake of the row.

He was reportedly already in line to be sacked, with more than a dozen staffers were prepared to quit if he was not removed.

The writer previously angrily hit back at critics in a Facebook post titled “A note for idiots”.

Referring to the unedited five-minute tape of his comments, he said: “There are selectively edited videos doing the rounds, as part of a co-ordinated effort to discredit me from establishment Republicans, that suggest I am soft on the subject.

“If it somehow comes across (through my own sloppy phrasing or through deceptive editing) that I meant any of the ugly things alleged, let me set the record straight: I am completely disgusted by the abuse of children.”
