Pink News Backs ‘Wax My Balls’ Yaniv

Pink News has published a supportive interview with an individual who is suing immigrant women in Canada for refusing to wax his man parts.

Jonathan Yaniv, or Jessica Yaniv as he likes to be called when shielding himself in the status of an oppressed minority, is notorious for having an obsession with tampons, periods and young girls. Jonathan deliberately targeted women of racial and religious minority groups, often immigrants, whom he has described as dirty, for his nuisance lawsuits, and has successfully extracted large sums of money through threats of litigation alone. 

An example of the screenshots Pink News decided not to share

All of this has been made possible by the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal, which up until recently had forbidden Canadian media from identifying ‘JY’.

None of this, however, would you learn from the Pink News piece, which is based around a conversation the author had with Jonathan, focusing solely on his perspective of the situation. No attempt was made to confront him over his long record of appalling behaviour, and instead he is given a soapbox to make his claims unchallenged. 

Pink News decided to publish screenshots Yaniv had provided of conversations on social media – yet no mention is made of the many, many screenshots of Jonathan himself engaging in incredibly inappropriate conversations, including with minors, which we covered in a previous article.

The ‘incriminating’ evidence from Yaniv which Pink News dutifully published

Rather than a voice for the gay, lesbian and transgender communities, it appears as though Pink News prefers to give a voice to those engaged in the harassment of vulnerable women of colour – as well as other deeply disturbing activities.

Pink News deemed this unworthy of mentioning

After the publication of this article, it has come to our attention that tweets critical of Pink News have been mass-reported to twitter, with some accounts being suspended or restricted.
