Tony Robbins apologized after his controversial statement on #metoo. How did the owner of Me too’s react?

An American author, entrepreneur, philanthropist and life coach, Tony Robbins is in the news for one or the other controversial statement. This time he is in the news for his controversial statement against the #metoo movement. #metoo movement is a social media movement where women share their experience of their sexual harassment via their social media handle.

Recently Tony made a statement against the #metoo movement. He said,

“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. All you’ve done is basically use a drug called significance to make yourself feel good.”

After this statement of his, many tweeted and criticized him for saying that. People accused him of not understanding the actual meaning of what that movement meant. American wrestler Michelle McCool said,

“You’re a leader and an influential man and you are doing a disservice, in my opinion, to the #MeToo movement.”

After all the criticisms, Tony has apologized for whatever he said, which hurt the sentiment of the people via his social media handle, Twitter,

Then he also said that he was wrong and has to learn many things in life,

“I apologize for suggesting anything other than my profound admiration for the #MeToo movement. I was wrong. I still have much to learn.”

He added,

“I need to get connected to the brave women of #MeToo,” and that he will both work on himself and work with them to make things better. “That begins with this brief statement but will not end until our goals are reached,”

#metoo founder’s reaction

The founder of #metoo and American activist, Tarana Burke has a different take on Tony. She said that the video has been cropped and edited before it was posted on social media. The full video is not shown because of which people are misinterpreting his words,

“I was made aware of this video BEFORE I ever saw it because Tony Robbins people reached out to do damage control within 24 hours. They wanted to “give me context” apparently. I don’t need any. I have eyes. The full video is 11 mins. And it’s gross. Bravo to this woman.”

Once again: Tony’s sexually inappropriate behavior

According to Buzzfeed, an article was published where numerous women shared sexual behavior by Robbins where he crossed the limit. He has been accused of domestic violence, rape, and demonize victimhood. He said,

“King said he soon found that a key part of his job involved responding to calls about participants who had threatened or attempted suicide or needed to be hospitalized after suffering mental breakdowns. At one 1995 Life Mastery event in Hawaii, he said he had to intervene after one participant started biting members of the hotel’s security staff and guests I was dealing with crisis and emotional meltdowns from the start.”
