The largest book retailer in New Zealand has banned a worldwide bestseller by a prominent clinical psychologist after the Christchurch Mosque shooting that claimed 50 lives, citing “disturbing material.”

First reported by journalist Tim Pool, Whitcoulls Books is sending messages to customers saying that they no longer carry Jordan Peterson’s “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote for Chaos.”

“Thank you for contacting us,” the retailer told a customer. “Unfortunately 12 Rules for Life is currently unavailable, which is a decision that Whitcoulls made in light of some extremely disturbing material being circulated prior, during and after the Christchurch attacks. As a business that takes our responsibilities to our communities very seriously, we believe it would be wrong to support the author at this time. Apologies that we’re not able to sell it to you, but we appreciate your understanding.”

Daily Caller posited that the “disturbing material” was a photograph that Peterson took with a fan wearing a t-shirt that said “I’m a proud Islamaphobe.”

The store continues to stock Adolf Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’, though, which is an ode to the superiority of the Aryan race and explains the how Jews destroyed the world.

Peterson’s book, on the other hand, has no racially derogatory premise or language. It is a self-help book.

He became a worldwide phenomenon after bucking his employer, the University of Toronto, claiming that he would refuse to abide by its nonscientific policy of calling students by their preferred gender pronouns.
