Blanc had to cancel or relocate a number of his speaking engagements this week after widespread protests erupted against his sexually aggressive pickup methods, which include choking women and forcing their heads in the direction of his dick.
Most recently, Blanc's assistant, Maximilian, was forced off a boat by police and protesters while filling in for Blanc at an event. The talk, on "how to be a very assertive man," occurred on a cruise ship because multiple hotels had already pulled out of hosting events for Blanc's company, Real Social Dynamics.
"The matter was raised with us and we had it investigated and this fellow looked at," Australian immigration minister Scott Morrison told Sky News.
"This guy wasn't putting forward political ideas, he was putting forward abuse that was derogatory to women and that's just something, those are values abhorred in this country."
Blanc had originally scheduled pickup artist events in Australia through Dec. 20.
