Update: The Return of Kings meetups have been cancelled by organizers. See this updated post for more information.
Controversy is rising regarding a scheduled event on February 6, 2016 by Return of Kings founder Roosh Valizadeh for a ‘tribesman’ meetup in Boston’s North End on the Prado (Paul Revere Mall) at 8 p.m.
According to the ROK website, “fellow tribesman” are instructed to ask the following question to other men suspected of being there for the meetup, “Do you know where I can find a pet shop?” in order to get details about where to go from there.
The Return of Kings blog describes itself as follows: “ROK aims to usher the return of the masculine man in a world where masculinity is being increasingly punished and shamed in favor of creating an androgynous and politically-correct society that allows women to assert superiority and control over men.”
The North End meetup is one of 165 worldwide events scheduled by Return of Kings. In response to a backlash against the scheduled meetups, ROK is making some locations “hidden” although the North End meetup is still publicly listed as of this writing. According to an updated blog post, “this meetup was never intended as a confrontation with unattractive women and their enablers.”
District A-1 Police have informed us they are aware of the scheduled event and will have officers monitoring the area.
