In November 2017, Estes was denied entry into Singapore for having expressed views which were "unacceptable" and "contrary" to the values of Singapore's multiracial and multi-religious society. His "divisive views breed intolerance and exclusivist practices that will damage social harmony, and cause communities to drift apart," according to the Singapore Ministry of Home Affairs.
