Shapiro was born on January 15, 1984 in Los Angeles, California. He was raised in an Orthodox Jewish family and both his parents worked in Hollywood as his mother was a television executive and his father was a musician. Shapiro played the violin as a child and did very well in school, skipping both third and ninth grades. After graduating from Yeshiva University High School in Los Angeles at the age of 16 in 2000, he enrolled at the University of California, Los Angeles. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science at the age of 20 and then attended Harvard Law School. After graduating, he worked at the law firm of Goodwin Proctor and then started his own legal consulting firm, Benjamin Shapiro Legal Consulting.
Shapiro began his public career as a writer and author and had his first nationally syndicated column at the age of 17. By the age of 21, he had already published two books. In his first book, “Brainwashed: How Universities Endocrine America’s Youth,” he discussed his view that American universities were not tolerant of non-Left ideologies and ideas. Her next book, “Porn Generation: How Social Liberalism Is Corrupting Our Future,” was published in 2005, and her third, “Project President: Bad Hair and Botox on the Road to the White House,” was published in 2008. His 2011 book, “Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Takes Over Your TV” discusses how Hollywood has promoted a leftist agenda through television and film. He published his fifth book in 2013, Another Criticism of Left-wing Culture, and then in 2017, he published his first work of fiction, “True Alliance”.
Shapiro’s sixth book, “The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great,” focuses on Judeo-Christian values and the decline of those values in the United States. He published his seventh book, “The Authoritarian Moment”, in 2021.
While working on his books, Shapiro also took on several other roles. In 2012, he became editor-at-large of Breitbart News, a very conservative news website founded by Andrew Breitbart. He resigned from the position in 2016 because of what he described as a lack of support for the website for Michelle Fields, a reporter who was allegedly attacked by Donald Trump’s former campaign manager. Since then, Shapiro has been a frequent target of the Alt-Right movement, which often attacks him with anti-Semitic remarks and rhetoric.
Shapiro has also worked as a radio host. In 2012, he joined KRLA-AM 870 as a co-host of the morning program. In 2016, he joined KRLA’s “The Morning Answer”, a conservative radio show. During his time on the show, Shapiro received criticism for not supporting Donald Trump much during the 2016 presidential election.
In 2015, Shapiro founded “The Daily Wire”. He serves as Emeritus Editor and also hosts his own online podcast on the platform called “The Ben Shapiro Show”. The podcast was ranked the second most popular podcast in the United States at one point in 2019 and is broadcast every day of the week. It became syndicated in 2018 and is used by over 200 different markets. Leading up to the 2018 midterm elections, Shapiro began hosting “The Ben Shapiro Election Special” on Fox News. He also frequently appears in Prageru Productions to discuss topics such as intimacy and Hollywood influence.
Through all of his various platforms, Shapiro has become very famous for his many radical views on political and social issues. He supports a complete ban on abortion, with the only exception being in extreme cases when the life of the mother is in danger. His views on homosexuality, the Israel-Palestine conflict, transgender rights and Islam have also sparked controversy. He has also been hesitant to acknowledge the impact of climate change and is critical of the Black Lives Matter movement, arguing that widespread systemic injustice towards African Americans does not exist today.
Shapiro married Mor Toledano, an Israeli physician, in 2008. The couple lived in Los Angeles, California where they had three children. They are raising their children in Orthodox Judaism. In September of 2020, Shapiro relocated his family to South Florida and moved the headquarters of “The Daily Wire” from California to Nashville, Tennessee.
Due to his career and political views, Shapiro and his family have been the recipients of many threats. The FBI arrested a man in 2019 after threatening to kill the Shapiro family. Shapiro’s sister, an opera singer, has also been the subject of anti-Semitic online trolling due to her relationship with her brother.
In 2015 Ben and More paid $1.7 million for a 6,500-square-foot home in Valley Village, Calif. In late 2020 Ben announced that he was leaving California for Tennessee. In October 2020 Peacock and Ben listed their home for sale for just under $2.9 million.
