But you are willing to post hurtful hateful things about Criss, simply because you disagree with his performance style?

CA showed his true colors when he exposed magic. He also tried to destroy a fellow entertainer Jim Callahan.
I personally emailed Cirque and told them hiring CA was a huge mistake ... Guess what? I was right Smile and don't believe I didn't let them know it after he threatened to blind a reporter, screamed the F word at an audience member and now this. WOW.

But I must defend CA here ... he just can't think on his feet. Live performance is not what he does. There is no CGI to save his behind. He could have made a huge joke out of this but instead he offended half the dancers in the cast and everyone else.

Performance style?!? Who said anything about performance style?

I am talking about making ignorant statements about entire groups of people. I'm not commenting on his ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, etc... Can you not see the difference here?!?

As an individual, he's a horrible performer and an embarrassment to Magic. (I find it hard for ANYONE here, based on his track record, to disagree).

Obviously there is something wrong going on here when Cirque and Luxor feel the need to apologize for him! Numerous times...
_____________________________________________________________________________

BTW - Danny, your blanket statement about finding reasons to attack Criss Angel is over-reaching. I have better things to do than "scour" the internet reading about this guy. I simply saw this post and commented my disgust, as many have as well. (You were compelled to comment - yes?) Additionally, I have no agenda. When I see or read about bad behavior and I feel like commenting, I will.

And for the record, I have never defended Criss Angel. I was appalled by him the moment I learned who he was...

I'm not twisting your words or trying to start an argument, I am disagreeing with you.

When the Show closes - I pray Cirque, and Vegas, will think wisely when assembling another Magic Act.

Please don't try to say that a junkie is that way because of illness.

Yea, I have to agree with that Cohiba. In todays politically correct society, we must tread so delicately with drug addicts, alcoholics and obese people,just to name a few for sake of space here. Why? Because its all an illness! Really? An illness? No one will ever convince me of that.I do not want to start a war over this my dear Café members, its my belief and you can agree to disagree if you must.They are addictions.They all start as a choice.

Make no mistake, I don't believe being a "junkie" or "alcoholic" is an illness, but having a proclivity to addiction is... (You misread my statement).

This has nothing to do with the topic, or being politically correct, but it was brought up by grouping people together using derogatory labels.

Umm... ... ... nope.

Considering you haven't actually commented on the actual topic, but rather on the persons participating within the topic - you're one to talk.

WHAT?!?

HAHAHA!

This is probably the most bizarre post on the Café I've ever seen outside that whole "Knickers Sniffing" one a few months ago...

Too funny!

There must an out. Sounds to me like CA or someone on his staff had to make a quick decision to allow this routine to continue, stop it or modify it, and simply made the wrong choice. To call it gay bashing is a bit of a stretch.

I love when you guys bring up post count as if it matters a bit as to you being wrong LOL. Nice.

Of your 448, how many are to bash Criss? I think that may be more relevant to my point. IF I was talking about you anyhow.

So tell me oh wise one, what is the EXACT right number of posts allowed according to you. What is your formula for how many posts I can have on this forum. I do not belong to many others so does that factor in? Really I am interested what is the formula for how many posts a person is allowed to have?

Next you will tell me my spelling is baad and think it passes for wit.

I honestly thought the free market would have this show closed WAY before now. I really did. I don't wish for it, but I simply would have thought that would be the way it went.

Truly. I'm continually amazed that the curtain hasn't fallen on this "travesty" as of yet. Perhaps Chris Angle's best trick to date...

Criss just had another mishap this week. He had an audience member on stage . Sometime during the routine, he told him "If you were a magician, you could have any woman you wanted, or in your case any man you wanted." Lotsa people booed. Cirque du Soleil had to apologize to the audience later.

Well I find 2 things amazing about this.

First that Criss keeps doing things like this. Second that you guys seem to scour the internet to find them and then post them. I find that almost as amazing.

Clearly this guy makes some very poor choices as for what he say when he is trying to seem clever. I do wonder just how many hits like this they are willing to take.

Gotta say one thing for him though, he must have one heck of a contract writer!
