Life Coach Apologizes for Comments About #MeToo
Life coach Tony Robbins has apologized for comments he made about the #MeToo movement during one of his events where he said that some women “use it to gain significance by playing the victim.” The comments were made during a March 15th “Unleash the Power Within” event where he argued with a woman named Nanine McCool about the movement. McCool uploaded the argument on YouTube and Robbins has since faced backlash. The video went viral after it was picked up by an entertainment news outlet. It was revealed that Tarana Burke, creator of the #MeToo movement, was made aware of the video by Robbins’ representatives who wanted to “do damage control.” Burke tweeted, “They wanted to ‘give me context’ apparently. I don’t need any. I have eyes.” Burke was also included in the apology Robbins issued Sunday.
