The past few months have seen many arguments about the actual height of Ben Shapiro, who is believed to be 5 feet 6 inches. The American political commentator and conservationist is one of the few celebrities who people believe are lying about their height and age. Even though it is difficult to make out why he would want to lie about his height and age, social media users, reporters, and whoever gets interested continue to make arguments. The controversy is fueled by the fact that he appears shorter when standing with people he claims to be taller than or of equal height with.
Ben Shapiro Doesn’t Stand Taller Than 5 Feet 9 Inches
Ben Shapiro’s height is anything but 5 feet 9 inches, as he claims. There has been a lot of probing and comparison, and none of them suggested that he is anything close to that height. All the evidence has proven that he is just an average man. Not too short, but not so tall either. According to Celebheights, a site known to be good at what its name says, the estimated height of Shapiro is 5 feet 6.75 inches. Even though he continues to deny, the American conservative measures somewhere around the stated figure.
Statistics reveal that the average height of an American man is 5 feet 9 inches. This means that about half of the men in America are taller than 5’9″. Being only about 5’6.75″ tall, the successful fellow is shorter than more than half of the men in the United States.
But still, more than a few people do not believe that Ben is anywhere near the 5.6’75” estimate as they opine that he is way shorter than that; possibly just about 5’0″ or slightly more. Be that as it may, it doesn’t change the fact that Ben is still taller than a good number of American men, and so many others around the world.

While the debate is still on about his height, some concerned people have taken it upon themselves to discredit pieces of evidence that suggest it is no insult referring to Ben Shapiro as a short man. Still, the authenticity of these pieces of evidence (photos) can be questionable as it is all too common these days to edit a picture into what you want it to look like.
Shapiro’s Opinion About His Height
Despite the long-standing debates and public criticism, Ben Shapiro maintains that he is as tall as 5 feet 9 inches. On one occasion, he called himself a strapping 5’9″ who had bigger hands than 6’2″ Donald Trump. Again, he referred to himself as a five-nine, one sixty-five Jewish guy.
Also, earlier in the debate, a photo he took with Canadian Psychologist Jordan Peterson was released showing what is obviously a huge disparity in the height of the two men. Ben Shapiro claimed that the picture was photoshopped and that the one he posted was the actual picture.

It was hard to tell which of the two images was photoshopped. All efforts to prove that he is as tall as an average American man has proven futile, but he has equally refused to give in or bend to public pressure concerning his height.
On the other hand, the influential young man is doing so much for one person, and he is doing it well. He is one of the few people that are not afraid of criticism, and he is always ready to give his views on any matter he feels like discussing. This also makes him a debater. He is presently in charge of Benjamin Shapiro Legal Consulting, based in Los Angeles.
Benjamin was greatly criticized some time ago for remarking that it is a “you problem” if you have to do more than one job to earn a living in America. Ironically, he is a lawyer, political commentator, book editor, radio personality, author, media consultant, talk show host, columnist, podcaster; you name it! In addition to his intimidating portfolio, Ben is known for his very controversial personality. Some of the jobs he does actually contributes to this.
Ben Shapiro’s Height Compared to Famous People with Known Heights
Usually, the way to figure the actual height of a controversial person is to compare them with people whose heights are known.
Who is Taller Between Alex Jones, Sean Hannity, and Ben Shapiro?
Alex Jones, a radio presenter, and Sean Hannity, a political commentator, are colleagues of Ben Shapiro. Alex and Sean are 5 feet 9.25 inches and 5 feet 11 inches tall, respectively. Obviously, both men are taller than the former.
Ted Cruz is Taller Than Ben Shapiro

Again, comparing Shapiro to former presidential candidate Ted Cruz reveals that the presenter is not so tall. Ted, who is about 5 feet 9 inches tall, stands obviously taller than him by a few inches. He was a supporter of Ted when he ran in the US election against Trump.
Ben Shapiro’s Wife Mor is Shorter Than Him
Ben’s wife Mor Shapiro is an Israeli doctor who is 5 feet 4 inches tall, making her only a few inches shorter than Ben. Pictures of both of them show that Ben is obviously taller than she is, but not enough to be 5 feet 9 inches. Unlike her husband, her life is quiet and reserved. They got married in 2008, and have remained happy together with their two children.
Donald Trump Tower’s Above Ben Shapiro
Though Shapiro had in the past alluded that he could be as tall as Donald Trump, looking at the fact at hand which is Trump’s height of 6 feet 2 inches, Ben is nowhere close to the former United States President who comfortably towers above him.
Opinion of Social Media Users Concerning Ben Shapiro’s Age
As you would expect, social media users are also in doubt of Ben Shapiro’s self-acclaimed age. From Twitter to Quora, to Reddit, to TikTok, the age he parades has primarily been criticized across different social media platforms. Nobody believes that he is that tall except himself. He has faced enough criticism that should make him succumb and take back everything he said about being 5’9″, but the dogged young man is far from giving in. He continues to maintain his stance regardless of the controversies.
