& # 39; He is anti-Semitic & # 39 ;: publicity guru Max Markson reveals the only person he will NEVER work with
Australia & # 39; s most infamous talent agent Max Markson has revealed the only person he will never represent.
Although he had worked with countless controversial figures in the past, Markson said so Mumbrellacast podcast on Friday that suspect David Hicks is someone with whom he would never associate himself.
& # 39; He was in Guantanamo Bay prison, & # 39 ;, the English-born publicist explained. & # 39; He fought the Australian army for the other side. & # 39;

Markson added: & # 39; I am Jewish and anti-Semitic. & # 39;
Hicks, who grew up in the working-class neighborhood of Salisbury in northern Adelaide, converted to Islam in 1999 and then moved to Afghanistan in 2001.
He was imprisoned in Afghanistan later that year and detained until 2007 in the US-led Guantánamo Bay of Cuba.

He claimed to be beaten, sexually abused, and tortured while being held.
In 2007, he pleaded guilty to & # 39; providing material support for terrorism & # 39; and he was transferred to Australia to serve his remaining sentence. He was released later that year.
In 2015, his terrorist attack was destroyed by a US military court.

While Markson refuses to work with Hicks, the publicist has been involved with a number of controversial figures over the years, including Pauline Hanson, Charlie Sheen, Bill Clinton, and Tracey Jewel of Married to First Sight.
His most notorious client, however, is the right-wing media personality Milo Yiannopoulos.
Markson represented Milo during his Australian Troll Academy Tour in 2017, and he told Mumbrellacast on Friday that it was an incredibly successful venture, despite the negative publicity around Yiannopoulos at the time.

Winning! In 2018, Markson represented Charlie Sheen on his Australian-speaking tour
& # 39; The tour was really successful, & # 39; said Markson. & # 39; They took over $ 1.2 million dollars, we sold more than 12,000 tickets. It was full everywhere. & # 39;
& # 39; The people who came to see him wanted to see him, & # 39; he added.
Yiannopoulos would return to Australia earlier this year for a handful of shows, but his visa was rejected by the Department of Home Affairs on & # 39; character grounds & # 39 ;.
