    Biography

    Gavin Miles McInnes is a Canadian writer, podcast host, far-right political commentator, actor and comedian. He is the host of the podcast Get Off My Lawn, on the online video platform Censored.TV, which he founded. He co-founded Vice in 1994 at the age of 24, and relocated to the United States in 2001. In more recent years, he has drawn attention for his far-right political activism and his role as the founder of the Proud Boys, an American far-right neo-fascist organization designated as a terrorist group in Canada. McInnes has been accused of promoting violence against political opponents, but has claimed that he only has supported political violence in self-defense and that he is not far-right or a supporter of fascism.
