In June 2015, her Rebel TV cameraman was shoved at the SlutWalk in Vancouver and her protest sign "There Is No Rape Culture In The West" was torn up while reporting on the event.  In March 2016 a protester in Vancouver poured a container of liquid assumed to be urine over Southern's head while she spoke with other protesters at rally in Vancouver.  The incident apparen tly resulted from statements Southern made about there being "only two genders."  In 2016, Southern's Facebook account was allegedly blocked after she criticized Facebook policies.  Southern initiated "The Triggering" whereby every March 9, the day after International Woman's Day, Twitter users post content deemed taboo in defense of free speech.  She has expressed advocacy for the alt-right.
