Watch: Sean Plunket takes on Shane Te Pou over Jordan Peterson

While some love controversial speaker Jordan Peterson, at least one Kiwi critic calls him "the greatest threat to civilisation in New Zealand".

The Canadian professor's comments on gender relations and women have polarised people across the globe.

And, over the last several years he's built up an online cult following, primarily among white men in their 20s and 30s.

On The Project on Friday night Magic Talk's Sean Plunket took on former politician Shane Te Pou over their views on the controversial professor. 

Dr Peterson will arrive in New Zealand next week for his 12 Rules For Life speaking tour.
