Stefan Molyneux apologises to fans for event cancellation, asks for money again

Controversial Canadian Stefan Molyneux has apologised for the cancellation of his planned speaking event and again asked for money.

The Powerstation called off Mr Molyneux and Lauren Southern's gig barely an hour after it was revealed as the pair's top-secret venue, after a backlash on social media.

In an email sent to ticket holders, Mr Molyneux explained the cancellation had cost a lot of money and they were processing refunds later this week.

But since the cancellation was such a waste of money, if fans wanted to forego the right to a refund they are welcome to do so, he said.

"We are committed to providing a refund to anyone and everyone who wants it. If you would like to donate the cost of your ticket to covering the expenses incurred, Lauren [Southern] and I would certainly appreciate that," he wrote.

"If you think that we provided enough value by engaging with a hostile media, battling visa barriers, and for me at least, recording and publishing the speech I was going to give, your generous support is most gratefully and humbly appreciated and accepted."

Mr Molyneux has published a 48 minute long video on his YouTube channel, which he says is the speech he intended to give before the event was shut down.

He ended the email apologising to fans for missing the event and thanking them for their kind support.

"We are so sorry we could not meet," he said.  "But I am sure we will be back before you know it!"
