Right-wing firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos has been pictured wearing a thick fur coat in 34C heat as he heads out shopping in Perth.
The self-described provocateur touched down in Perth on Saturday, the second leg of his Troll Academy Tour.
Mr Yiannopoulas, 33, has come under fire from various community groups for offending Muslims and gay people, despite being gay himself, since his tour of Australia began on Friday.

Stepping out in a thick fur jacket on Sunday, Mr Yiannopoulas appeared not bothered his choice of clothing might continue to offend various groups in the community.
Taking to his Facebook on Sunday, Mr Yiannopoulas told his two and a half million followers he was ‘keeping it low-key’.
His loyal followers praised him for his bold choices.
‘I can’t help but admire you and your willingness to cause controversy for the better cause of humanity,’ one man said.
While some took issue with his fur coat, hoping it was ‘faux fur’, others were more taken aback he wore the jacket in Perth’s 34C heat.
‘You must be sweltering in that fur in the Perth heat, darling!’ one woman said.
‘That fur is just for show Milo, it’s bloody hot today!’ another said.
Just three days into Mr Yiannopoulas’ Australian tour, the details of his altra-extravagant life-style and upbringing have surfaced.

Mr Yiannopoulos insisted he was a self made man, despite growing up with a ‘mafioso’ father and living between houses all around the world.
He was born Milo Hanrahan and raised in Kent, England to Greek and Jewish parents.
His family had a chalet in the Austrian Alps and for his fifth birthday he got a pony. It was a lifestyle any child would be in envy of – but that’s nothing compared to today.
Now known as Milo Yiannopoulos, the controversy king wears labels like Versace and Gucci, has houses around the world, stays in fancy hotels and only drinks expensive champagne. Put simply, he’s living life like a rockstar.
And after flaunting the best of his expensive wardrobe during his visit to Sydney this week, Yiannopoulos told Daily Mail Australia he was offended by estimates he’s worth just AUD$5.3 million.

Milo Yiannopoulos has revealed that an outfit (pictured) he wore in Australia this week is worth close to $150,000
The right-wing firebrand told of his lavish lifestyle to Daily Mail Australia, including his million dollar wardbrobe, designer jewellery collection and his husband’s bespoke $300,000 Tesla
‘Growing up we had a chalet in Australia, a couple of different house and my dad had a few Porsches,’ Yiannopoulos recalled.
‘I got a pony for my fifth birthday, I could never work out why we lived in nice houses. I didn’t know what my dad did but essentially I was your typical Greek Mafioso child.
‘But professionally speaking I’m pretty much self-made. My career in London took off pretty quick and I’ve always had a taste for nice things, so I knew I had to work hard.’
Starting as the tech writer for the Telegraph, he went on to create his own magazine The Kernel and spent time at Breitbart News, before his role as right-wing firebrand.

While on the surface he seems to be permanently stirring the pot, behind the scenes he lives the high life.
Last year he married his partner John at the Four Seasons in Hawaii in an extravagant wedding ceremony that he for the first time revealed cost AUD$460,000.
There’s multiple houses in the United States and two in London, AUD$330,000 cars and a wardrobe supermodels would be jealous of.
And most of it was on show this week during his trip to Australia, as Yiannopoulos hit out at Muslims and ‘lefties’ while wearing his designer clothes and bespoke jewellery.

‘I was wearing a Dolce and Gabbana jacket, the sunglasses are Louis Vuitton, custom made 50 karat gold jewellery from New York, jeans from Balmain and Tiffany earrings worth AUD$40,000,’ he said.
‘I guess at any time I’m probably wearing AUD$200,000 of stuff – if people came and cut off my hands they’d be able to buy a house.’

‘I got a AUD$1.3 million signing bonus from Apple last year and my first purchase was a gold chrome Tesla for my husband which cost AUD$330,000,’ he revealed.
‘It’s the only gold chrome model in the world. They didn’t even have gold on the drop down box to choose from.
‘I’m basically like a cross between a Russian oligarch’s wife and a Chinese tourist, lots of gold and plenty of Louis Vuitton.

Yiannopoulos has multiple houses across the United States, as well as two homes in London
‘A couple of generations back my family had nothing, as often happens with people who come into money, now we’re showing off heavily.’
But while wasn’t afraid to splurge on a vehicle for his now husband John, he claimed it has been close to a decade since he himself has got behind the wheel.
‘I haven’t driven for 10 years, there’s normally an Escalade waiting out the front – I’m a bit like Hilary Clinton I guess,’ Yiannopoulos said with a laugh.
Creating headlines since the moment he stepped out of business class and onto the tarmac, the full-time mischief maker said his tour of Australia had been a success.
Just minutes after chatting with Daily Mail Australia on Friday he was back in the air, jetting off to the first leg of his speaking tour in Adelaide.
‘I’m basically like a cross between a Russian oligarch’s wife and a Chinese tourist, lots of gold and plenty of Louis Vuitton,’ he said
Yiannopoulos began working as a tech correspondent for the Telegraph, before later going to work at Breitbart news
The 33-year-old also revealed that growing up his family had a chalet in the Austrian Alps (like pictured) and that for his fifth birthday he was gifted a pony
So far he’s sold out shows in Adelaide, Melbourne and two in Sydney, with a third to be added in the Harbour City next Wednesday, November 6.
Some 12,000 people are expected to watch him in action on his Australian tour, with Yiannopoulos saying he’s been left nothing short of chuffed.
‘Australia I always knew was going to be a key market for me, people want to see me live and want to read my stuff,’
‘What it has proved to me is the lefties and feminists in Australia better get to used to me, because I’m going to be over here causing mayhem every year.’
