Dating Coach Under Fire for Online Posts

Julien Blanc, Executive Coach of Real Social Dynamics, is at the center of a lot of backlash for online posts that suggest using aggressive tactics to sleep with a woman, including choking. Now, there's even a petition to deny him a visa to the United Kingdom.

On New Day, he tells Chris Cuomo that his posts were a "horrible, horrible attempt at humor" and that he's sorry. Do you believe him? Watch the interview and weigh in on Twitter using #NewDay.

    Julien Blanc, you can't take back what you did. I never forgive you. If you sincerely apporogize to us, you can quit that job. If you can't, you just wanted to pretend to "Apporogize " to us because you don't have confidence to make money in different way.

    Chris Cuomo was an ass on this one. I don't commend the behavior of Julien, but not letting someone finish, interrupting in a condescending low tone voice way, interpreting everything through a black lense. It just shows me how bullshit the media is. You can't discuss issues like this properly in a few minutes. Why else do you think university lectures take 90 minutes? It's because you can't think properly in a few minutes, you can only make snap judgements and they're are too biased. And I hate it. It makes the media look more like religion and less like science.

    Julien is an idiot and he had it coming. But he's not treated in a fair way here. Give him an hour of time or give him no air-time at all. The hour won't change anyone's opinion but it will probably make it more nuanced. Because I don't see nuance here, only biased judging.

    Now I'm not saying the media or Chris Cuomo are stupid. I'm just dissapointed in them, they could do a lot better.

      This campaign against him is full of inaccurate and misleading accusations. Julien and RSD coaches *never* encouraged *any* form of violence or racism against *anyone*.

      The truth about Julien Blanc is well explained in the video "The Disgusting Truth about Julien Blanc : What nobody wanted you to know" (

      Julien Blanc and RSD members are self-improvement coaches who are focused on helping men to become better with women and life in general. They focus on helping them achieve their best self by becoming more confident, social, outgoing and empathetic with people in general. They give genuinely good advices in the area of dating to help men have more fulfilling relationships with women.

      The reason so many people believe Julien is evil is because of a big misunderstanding about his attitude. He has a dark sense of humor and is likely to say anything if it can make people react. Everyone who knows him is perfectly aware to always take what he says with caution, because most of his provocative tweets are meant to chock his audience and should not be taken literally in any way.

      If you want more information instead of disinformation, watch some of these videos :

      – Seminars compilation explaining a lot about this whole campaign :

      – Great insights and honesty from a woman's perspective :

    The government of United States should put him in jail before he cause more real damages, if he didn't yet... It is a shame for the americans to be represent by this monster. He was already band from Australia, Brasil, UK, and hope it will not stop there.

    I found that Blanc was using his own adopted, strategy to handle Chris Cuomo: Deny, Blame, Minimize. It didn't work very well..

    I don't know who is worse. This schmuck or the feminists who attacked Dr Matt Taylor last week over his garish SyFy shirt.

    This was painful to watch. The only thing he should apologize is for the Tokyo video that went viral (which was a clear attempt to gain notoriety, but was way out of line).

    Posting a page describing signs of domestic violence with a hashtag #HowToMakeHerStay is grotesque, an obvious attempt at dark humor. His whole Twitter and Facebook page was an exaggerated portrayal of a mysoginistic womanizer. His mistake was believing most people would have enough awareness to realize that. If someone truly believes that he gets paid 3000$ to teach men how to start a conversation with a woman by choking her I don't even know what to say to you.
