resulted in a joint statement on November 26 by the Singapore's Immigration & Checkpoints Authority and its Ministry of Social and Family Development that Blanc would not be allowed into Singapore, which he had been scheduled to visit during a tour in late 2014.
In Japan, customs officials raised the concern that Blanc had not had a proper work permit on his earlier visit to Tokyo.
Australia's 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 ...
those are values abhorred in this country." Alleging that permitting Blanc into the country “legitimises sexual assault and predation” and that his pick-up techniques “directly exploit vulnerable men who buy into rape culture and end up believing that this is an appropriate way to behave,” shadow home secretary (Labour) Yvette Cooper called upon Home Secretary Theresa May to deny Blanc entry to the country.
Critics denounced Blanc's photos published on the internet with the "#Choking Girls Around The World" hashtag showing him approaching women and clasping their throats as legitimizing violence and physical abuse as part of seducing women.
