American “pickup artist”, Julien Blanc, is in Australia to complete a series of seminars about how to pick up and, ultimately, have sex with women. But the general public is attempting to boycott the seminars by creating a #TakeDownJulienBlanc campaign.
People are set to take down “pickup artist”, Julien Blanc, as he brings his racist and abusive tactics to the country.
One Melbourne hotel has joined the #TakeDownJulienBlanc campaign by cancelling the American’s appearances. Another Brisbane hotel has also followed suit, while the dumbfounded public takes to Twitter to bring attention to the 25-year-old’s racist and abusive methods.
Can you even believe it? A 20-something self-proclaimed “executive dating coach” says he can give men the secrets to picking up women and men actually fork over their hard-earned money?
The tickets aren’t cheap, either. They go for at least $1,000 a pop.
What’s really sad, though, is the message Blanc shares through his seminars, his websites and on social media through his associated group, Real Social Dynamics, or RSD.
According to his website, pimpingmygame.com, as reported by SBS, Blanc promises men they’ll be able to “make girls beg to sleep with you after short-circuiting their emotional and logical mind into a million reasons why they should”.

Guys, if you’re reading this, I’ll give you some pickup advice for free. Listen up, all it takes is this: Pay attention, show off your personality, ask questions, listen and be yourself. It is that simple.
Blanc’s misogynistic methods have been described as racist, sexist and downright abusive.
It’s a scary thought knowing this guy is out there sharing his message with vulnerable men who obviously don’t have the self-esteem or self-awareness to be themselves around women.
And, guys, trust me, women can be just as nervous as you when it comes to these situations. But, unfortunately, Julien Blanc is out there spreading his misogynistic, sexist, completely deluded word. Here are 10 of the most horrifying methods he uses to engage, lure and sleep with women.
1. Physical violence is part of his power play:
