Protests prompt Calgary theatre to cancel men’s rights films — and become target of a backlash against protest

Article here. Excerpt:

'For the second time in a month, a Calgary showing of a documentary chronicling a feminist’s change of heart has been scrubbed.

The latest cancellation is Tuesday’s screening of The Red Pill and discussion arranged by the group Fathers Rights Alberta at Plaza Theatre.

Plaza manager Logan Cameron said the decision was made after they were bombarded with complaints by people who contend the film champions misogyny.

“There were just numerous complaints — calls, social media, emails,” said Cameron.

But he said the backlash over the move to cancel the private, free-admission event has proven even more harsh.

“It seems to be greater than the protest for running it. … It’s a lose-lose situation right now,” he said.'
