The Red Pill, a documentary that explores the men’s rights movement received a huge amount of backlash in Australia from angry feminists with many theatres cancelling screenings to avoid backlash.
What can only be described as embarassing for the hosts, Cassie Jaye politely answered Weekend Sunrise's questions, while mid interview, asking whether they had seen the movie. Andrew O'Keefe was almost dismissive of Cassie in the interview on Weekend Sunrise, while The Project seemed to almost belittle the conversation about men's rights,
“My full interview with them was very hostile and aggressive and on the attack, and I definitely felt ambushed. I’ve never been treated in any other press appearances like I have been on Sunrise and The Project.”
Jaye had complained of Australia’s reaction to the documentary.
“We’ve had a lot of success in other countries, so Australia is really the only place we’ve had protests and petitions and banning like this,” she said.
