The event management platform, Eventbrite, removed a screening of Matt Walsh’s documentary “What Is A Woman” for allegedly promoting hate.

An email from the company said, “We encourage our organizers to express their views and gather for a chosen purpose as long as it’s done in a way that doesn’t violate our Legal Terms. We do not permit events, content, or creators that promote or encourage hate, violence, or harassment towards others and/or oneself.”
A similar email was sent one month prior to another “watch party” for the documentary that was set to take place at the Turning Point USA chapter of Western Kentucky University. A very similar email accompanied this instance as well.
Eventbrite removed our event to watch @MattWalshBlog “What is a Woman”. The event will still be happening. Show up and let’s show Eventbrite that their censorship will not stop us. It’s next Tuesday, September 13, 6pm in DSU 2123. https://t.co/h9sDcNv0Za

According to the Daily Wire, Eventbrite did this to another movie from Dinesh D’Souza called “2,000 Mules.” The movie seeks to prove fraud in the 2020 presidential election, and was taken off the Eventbrite platform at the last minute because it was promoting “potentially harmful misinformation.”
Louisiana GOP Chairman Louis Gurvich believes that the cancellation was politically motivated and that the company waited until the last minute to deplatform the movie as a form of sabotage.
Claiming malicious intent Gurvich said, “We’re not going to recover all the fees. We may recover most, but we’re not going to recover the time and effort it’s going to take to recover the donations … that had already been given to us and then were basically taken away.”
When the Daily Caller asked for specific reasons why the “What Is A Woman” documentary was removed from Eventbrite, no explanation was provided.
On the Eventbrite platform right now, you will not find a screening of “What Is A Woman” or “2,000 Mules,” but you will find “drag related” events made for and targeting children. One is entitled “All Ages Drag Makeup” taking place in a library in Scarborough, WA. The other is called “Halloween Fun – All Ages Drag Bingo With Poison Waters.”
