Tony Robbins 🤦‍♂️ NXIVM💥 Predators Exposed in the Self Help Community #metoo

June 8, 2019

Tony Robbins was accused of sexual misconduct by four women in a Buzzfeed article. Now, more women are starting to come forward. Plus, a video of him using racial slurs as has also surfaced. 

Kieth Raniere is on trial for using his now-defunct self-help empire, NXIVM, to hide an elite sex cult complete with sex trafficking, kidnapping and a tier of slaves. He used his influence and power to pressure his followers into sleeping with him in the guise of helping them heal their sexuality. 

Both men have been outed partly because of the influence of the #metoo movement. Especially, Tony Robbins who put light on himself by claiming that #metoo was an excuse for women to become relevant. 

The Witches talk about these two men and how they have gotten away with their predatory behavior because people were bullied into silence or threatened by lawyers to stay quiet. 

**TRIGGER WARNING - In this podcast, we talk about graphic sexual acts, rape, sexual assault, and other disturbing behavior.**
