UK denies visa to American 'pick-up artist'
November 20 , 2014
Britain has denied a visa to Julien Blanc, the US “pick-up artist.”
In his seminars, Blanc teaches men the art of attracting women, but critics say his methods are a form of sexual abuse.
The controversial dating guru’s Britain tour was slated for February, but a petition to bar him from entering the country gathered over 150,000 signatures, according to media reports.
Lynne Featherstone, the UK crime prevention minister, said she was “delighted” by the decision of the home office.
