Tony Robbins, the self-help guru and life philosopher, has gotten a lesson on life. It recently came out that in a San Jose seminar last month, he had scolded women for the #MeToo movement. A video of his doing so went viral. He was beseiged with complaints.
According to Mediaite.com, Robbins had criticized the #MeToo movement and claimed women were using it as a “drug” to “try and get significance.” Men who have been accused of sexual harassment have been abused, Robbins claimed to an audience that understandably gave him a hard time.
Wrote hollywooodlife.com, “Tony Robbins should know better….after the life coach disgustingly claimed women are using the [#MeToo] movement to ‘feel significant,’ Twitter fought back. Robbins told women in the audience, “If you use the #MeToo movement to try to get significance and certainty by attacking and destroying someone else, you haven’t grown an ounce.” He claimed he knew of a boss who was interviewing candidates for a job. The most qualified one was very attractive. Worrying that he might get in trouble, he did not hire her.
Yesterday (April 8), he said he fully supports the #MeToo movement and he wants to be “part of the solution.”
Robbins’s management crew, Robbins Research International, is based in San Diego. Robbins spends much of his time at his Florida mansion.
