I can’t even begin to tell you how much I hate Tony Robbins (and every other motivational speaker — but especially him). Here’s another good reason why, because he pulls stupid stunts like having people walk on hot coals.
San Jose firefighters treated 21 people for burns when they walked across hot coals at an event by motivational speaker Tony Robbins.
The incident occurred Thursday, with some of those suffering second- and third-degree burns. None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
Witness Jonathan Correll, 25, described cries of pain when the participants were burned. “I heard wails of pain, screams of agony,” he told the San Jose Mercury News.
Robbins’ organization released a statement saying it will look into ways to make the coal-walking event safer if possible. “We have been safely providing this experience for more than three decades, and always under the supervision of medical personnel,” the statement said.
I see lawsuits. But quite frankly, if you take seriously anything that fraud has to say, I can’t feel all that sorry for you. If you really believe that bullshit he’s selling — at a very high price — that you can walk on hot coals without being burned if you just think positively or have the right attitude, being burned should really be a wake up call for you to stop being so gullible.
