The publication dug up video of the seminar Robbins 1980-ies, in which the coach repeatedly says the word “nigger”. Moreover, according to BuzzFeed, it was a lecture to African Americans on how to respond to racism.

To be free, you must learn to react to such things is easy and to translate everything into a joke. To defuse the situation, the coach started clapping and singing “I am a nigger, you nigger, be a nigger!”.
Attorneys Robbins in a letter to Buzzfeed before the publication accused the publication in an attempt to use the video to ruin the reputation of the guru. According to them, the audience, which was made by Robbins, was pleased with the seminar.
