(CNN) -- A self-professed American dating expert who has said he feels like the most hated man in the world has been banned from entering another country -- Britain.
The UK has declined to issue a visa to Julien Blanc, an executive coach at Real Social Dynamics (RSD), a group that charges clients thousands of dollars to learn what have been described as sexist, misogynistic and violent acts towards women.
March 25 would be the last day it was in 3D in San Diego. On the other hand, Avatar on the big screen in 3D would not likely be repeated again. It didn't help my confidence that in his introduction, he said "This 2 hour presentation is kind of like a movie. Tyler started off with giving us a "brain dump." It was kind of like the format of a random Eckhart Tolle speech.
At the same time, my friend Blake gave me a call letting me know that Tyler would be in town for the free tour, and playing in-field footage. Whatever current epiphanies are swirling in his mind, he lets out in an unscripted, note-free monologue.
On its website, RSD describes itself as the world's largest dating coaching company, and promises to teach clients how to "attract the women you've always wanted." "All of the material that we teach works amazingly well on women of younger age groups, and works just as well on women that are older and more mature," the website says.
S.-based company which offers seminars and "boot camps" throughout the world to men seeking instruction on how to meet and seduce women.In a later interview with BBC, Samuels described the seminar as being "in a classroom, in a hotel, with a hundred, two hundred guys who start making notes, with Julien at the front as the kind of rock star guru, people hanging on every word, and generally getting fairly practical pop psychology tips on how to approach women, what sort of conversation to make, how to project your alpha male, and a sense of self confidence." The video, which has since been removed, shows Blanc presenting a seminar to a roomful of men.In the seminar, Blanc describes his opinion that "sub-communication" by using gestures, rather than talking, is important when seducing women and that it is possible to "game" a woman in a foreign country using limited vocabulary.In November 2014, Blanc became the subject of multiple social media campaigns alleging that his dating advice encourages sexual violence and abuse, and involving multiple petitions on those grounds to deny him entry to several nations.On November 17, Blanc made an appearance on CNN rebutting these accusations, stating that evidence against him does not reflect his teaching, and that it was taken out of context.
