Unlimited Power: Investigating Tony Robbins

In May 2019, BuzzFeed News published a major investigation into the world’s most famous self-help guru Tony Robbins, who claims to have revolutionised millions of lives including some of the most vulnerable. The investigation revealed that Robbins publicly berated victims of rape and abuse at his events – and is accused by nine women of inappropriate sexual advances or exposing himself to them, including groping followers and sexually harassing staffers. The millionaire’s legal team aggressively fought to shut the story down.
