Daryush ‘Roosh’ Valizadeh, 36, the self-proclaimed ‘King of Masculinity’ recently called the cops after receiving death threats from around the world, prompting him to cancel a series of “tribal meetings” in 45 countries set for this weekend, according to The Daily Mail.
Valizadeh, who is the target of protests in Canada, Australia and the UK, has called for women to be banned from voting and for rape to be legal as long as it’s on private property.
This week, he also claimed that online hacktivists Anonymous (or people associated with the group) have shared his family’s address on social media. Unfortunately for Valizadeh but to the delight of his critics, the unplanned attention has revealed that the “pro-rape” blogger lives at home in his mother’s basement.
From the Independent:
The news came after protesters called for him to be banned from the UK after he [organized] eight meetings in various locations. Similar meetings were planned in locations across the US and Canada – one of which being Toronto, where an all-female boxing group threatened to show up should the meeting go ahead.
Now, Valizadeh has told his 20,000 Twitter followers his family’s home address was published on social media by the online collective. He also shared a screengrab of what appears to be a post by online activists associated with anonymous.

“Anonymous doxxed my family’s address. Whatever I’ve done in life, they don’t deserve to be harassed or harmed,” Valizadeh wrote in the now-deleted tweet.
On Thursday, Valizadeh announced that he has canceled public meetings of his group “Return of Kings” because he could “no longer guarantee the safety or privacy of the men who want to attend.”
