Notable Media Appearances
The #TakeDownJulienBlanc Campaign
The timeline of the campaign, controversy and media coverage surrounding Julien Blanc in November 2014 are outlined below.
November 3, 2014: A change.org petition (see here) was launched against Julien urging The Como Hotel in Melbourne, Australia to cancel appearances by the pick up artist involving his dating seminar. The petition eventually gathered more than 50,000 signatures against Julien claiming his seminars are sexist, racist, and encourage isolation and emotional abuse to get women.
The creator of the petition, Jennifer Li (Jennifer Li's twitter), points to a Youtube video clip by Blanc in which he describes how to get away with indecent assault of Tokyo women. The video, which has 50,000 views and has been changed to ‘private’, is titled: White Male F-cks Asian Women in Tokyo. Another video in circulation is titled: “Pick-Up Artist” pushing Japanese Women’s heads down.
Some of the accusations against Blanc include his fixation with physical violence, in particular his photo postings on social media showing how he propositions women in chokeholds using the hastag: #ChokingGirlsAroundTheWorld.
The petition spawned 10s of thousands of Twitter tweets with the hashtag #TakeDownJulienBlanc.
