Tony Robbins believes the #metoo movement is about victims feeling “significant”

Tony Robbins is the undisputed self help master of the universe, a world famous personality that has amassed a kings ransom convincing people to believe in themselves.

Mr. Robbins presents himself as a beacon of optimism, and positivity, but his statements at a seminar last month (released friday) has set the internet on fire, and could impact his ability to earn money at the level he was.

Lets go to the video tape that was released by Now This Friday evening.

“If you use the #MeToo movement to try to get significance and certainty by attacking and destroying someone else… all you’ve done is basically use a drug called significance to make yourself feel good

After making some insanely ridiculous statements, Robbins was challenged by one of the audience members, who was about as respectful in disagreement as possible.

“Certainly there are people who are using it for their own personal devices, but there are also a significant number of people who are using it not to relive whatever may have happened to them, but to make it safe for the young women, So that they don’t have to feel unsafe.”

The exchange has cast Tony Robbins in an extremely negative light, there is no excuse for his behavior whatsover, it takes some serious audacity to assume the perspective of a victim, and then insert nefarious motives for that person coming forward.

What a load of unbelievable BS.

These people are trusting Tony Robbins with their emotional well being, they believe in his vision, and his mission, the man has an incredible platform from which to influence change.

Instead, he uses the power of his pulpit to denigrate victims of sexual assault, while also presenting the #metoo movement as nothing more than a great collective self esteem issues.

He might be trying to help, but he just marginalized countless victims, and dimissed one of the most significant mass movements in history as nothing more than a ruse.

Mr Robbins needs to be quiet.
