I just read this on Twitter:

Here is an explanation: several people attended the expo to meet the Honey Badgers. Following the Badgers’ ejection from the Calgary Comics Expo, the group decided to find a place where their fans could meet them. They chose a park located near Calgary. They posted the location on Twitter and their website. Apparently someone from Calgary Expo discovered this and promptly had the expo’s security contact the police.
Only one officer came. He asked the Badgers’ intentions and left when he discovered they were just hanging out. There is raw video of the interaction. The audio is rather bad, however, you can see the officer approach someone and ask questions.
I asked if there was any confirmation that Calgary Expo called the police. According to Rachel Edwards, the officer informed them that Calgary Expo made the call.
Feminists took to social media to complain that the Honey Badgers were harassing people at the expo. Sorry ladies, but this is harassment looks like. Harassment is not someone asking for permission to speak and then saying something you do not like. Harassment is calling the police on a group of people you do not like after you kick them out of your event.
To all the comic book professionals who supported Calgary Expo, this is what you supported. Actual harassment of women in comics.
