Last Wednesday, so-called “pickup artist” and advocate of legal rape on private property Roosh V announced that the “global meetups” his Return of Kings group had been planning were cancelled. Some Montreal-based feminists including Katie Nelson didn’t buy it one bit. They tracked down where the still-on meetup was taking place and on Saturday confronted the local organizer and saw to it that the event wasn’t going to happen.

In this audio interview (which will be included in our next podcast’s panel discussion available on Wednesday), Nelson speaks with FTB’s Jason C. McLean about Saturday night, why it’s important not to ignore Roosh and people like him, the master doxxer getting doxxed himself by Anonymous and Roosh’s beer reception in Montreal last August:
