The woman at the center of the now-viral clip of Tony Robbinsin which he seemed to dismiss the goals of the MeToo movement, told ABC News' "Nightline" today that she felt "pushed" to stand and confront Robbins for his rhetoric.
McCool, a resident of Louisiana and former lawyer, said that she "was cringing" while listening to Robbins talk about the movement during a self-help seminar March 15 in San Jose, California. McCool said that she was attending the seminar hoping for inspiration. McCool, who told "Nightline" that she'd been "sexually abused by a male baby sitter" for years when she was "very, very young," said the MeToo movement had given her the courage she needed to speak up and help people understand the movement's ificance.
In the video, which went viral last week, McCool called out the superstar life coach, saying that he "misunderstand[s] the MeToo movement. On Sunday, Robbins apologized for misunderstanding the movement in a statement posted to Facebook.
Tarana Burke, who created the hashtag MeToo and was instrumental in creating the movement, turned to Twitter on Saturday to tell her followers that she was "made aware of this video BEFORE I ever saw it because Tony Robbins people reached out to do damage control within 24 hours. The activist added: "They wanted to 'give me context' apparently. I have eyes. The full video is 11 mins. Bravo to this woman. We want safety. We want healing. We want ability. We want closure. We want to live a life free from shame.
It appeared Burke's comments struck a nerve with Robbins, who said he's now "realized I am committed to being part of the solution. Robbins concluded: "I am committed to helping to educate others so that we all stay true to the ideals of the MeToo movement. I will never stop examining my own words and actions to make sure I am staying true to those ideals.
That begins with this brief statement but will not end until our goals are reached. Robbins, a self-help author, became famous in part because of his celebrity clientele, which has included former President ClintonOprah Winfrey and Olympic gold medalist Serena Williams. He's also the author of several New York Times best-selling books. She said it was given to her "no questions asked. Today, she called Robbins' apology "a good start" but said she has no intention of interacting with him again. LOG IN. We'll notify you here with news about.
