Read about it here:

I think this is absurd... people are still prosecuted as witches...

Let's hope he recovers quickly and that his assailant gets some serious punishment.

That is horrible. Unimaginable. Prayers for a quick and full healing go out to him...

I still can't imagine what's the reason the host did that???

Me neither... putting this in the "I believe in something else then you"-category is just to easy. This is attempted murder, plain and simple.

Magicians have had to put up with this uncivilized behavior for centuries. The Dominican Republic is also known for being a base for drug cartels shipping their poison to Europe and the US and as an anti-immigrant nation as well as its religious fanaticism.

Looking at this footage it looks like a stunt gone wrong more than a deliberate attack...

Although I think it was stupid and very risky to try this without Wayne knowing about it... We'll just have to wait and see if the reasons become clearer...

He used a cleansing spray on him.

this spray is used in shamanic rituals to cleans away evil. the fact that he kept moving and spreading it with his hands tells his intent was to burn him to death.

Or we could speculate...

Hang on a minute,why is the attacker showing concern over what he has just done,checking his hair and not shouting or behaving erratically,stunt, makes's you think watching this footage?, but hope wayne is ok and no permanat damage to him.

No need brother. this was a tragedy that should never have happened, everyone gets fired up on things like this.

To me it look like a stunt gone wrong and the rubbing certainly did not make me think he was trying to burn Houcin to death but trying to fix his utter f*** up after realizing what an a**hole he was.
That does NOT excuse it at all, it is a horrible and absolutely unacceptable thing to do and the host should be in jail.

I only mention my POV (which may well be wrong) because now we have people in inner thoughts on a hunt for all shans and faith healers. According to a post by Houchin the talk about this being punishment for being involved I'm Vodoo was made by two other reporters after the event and thy retracted their comments when they heard what really happened. As far as I know there has been no statement by the host who did the actual burning.
