The Fox FM team have been labelled 'poor snowflakes' after the radio station pulled advertisements promoting Milo Yiannopoulos ahead of his Australian tour.

The ads, which plugged the controversial right-wing commentator's second Melbourne show, were banned on Wednesday morning.

It came after a concerned listener questioned why the station was 'accepting money from a travelling Nazi'.

The advertisement's voice-over said: 'The world's most controversial man Milo Yiannopoulos is coming to Melbourne. 

'He's been banned from Twitter. His book Dangerous is on the New York Times bestseller list. He calls Donald Trump ''daddy''.

'Presented by Penthouse magazine, the first show has sold out, so tickets are now on sale for Milo's second show in Melbourne on Monday December 4.'

Daily Mail Australia understands Fox's Head of Content deemed the advert 'too off brand' after receiving 'a number of complaints'.

Penthouse Magazine publisher and promoter of Yiannopoulos' Australian tour Damien Costas described the decision as 'weak'. 

'I can't believe it… Those poor snowflakes!' he told Daily Mail Australia in a statement.

'This is the same station that has Hamish & Andy, Fifi Box and Brendan Fevola on air every day and they are afraid of a few keyboard warriors complaining on twitter?

'Crazy! What will they do if one of their announcers dares to go to see Milo at his first sold out show or the newly announced second 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 on December 4. Will you ask Kate Langbroek not to attend the show now?' 

The station's ban is not the first opposition the right-wing firebrand has faced since announcing his Australian tour. 

His critics started a failed petition demanding Minister for Immigration Peter Dutton deny him a visa.

And Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan said last week he would not be welcome in state-owned buildings.

'I don't think he's welcome in WA… so we will make sure that all government venues are not available to him,' Mr McGowan told Nine News. 

Yiannopolous has previously likened feminism to cancer, Islam to AIDS and was once accused of condoning sexual relationships between teenage boys and older men.
