Some people hate him, others, including Diamond Jim Tyler, Nate Staniforth, Andrew Mayne, Daniel Garcia, Alex Rannel, David Rowyn, Mac King and Michael Ammar, love him. But I hope nobody actually wishes him any actual harm. Brian Brushwood announced today, September 24, 2020, on his Twitter account < @shwood > that he and his wife have both contracted COVID-19. I hope they both recover fully and quickly.

Given his character, I’d bet on it being a publicity stunt.

That seems like a lame thing to say about somebody. What is it about his character that makes you say that? He performed stunts for a living, but that's not the same thing as lying about an illness for publicity.

What a phenomenally unkind thing to say.

I think the comment tells more about Mr. Cutt's character than about Mr. Brushwood's.

Well, yes, it does. Because it is my comment. Mr. Brushwood’s decades of scamming and selling out the ethics of magic for “fame And fortune” speak of his character. Look, I get it. You guys have no problem with a scammer out exposing magic on the www. And you take his dubious claims at face value. I just don’t.

I don’t wish him or his family any ill.

But it's not the same thing. If I met Brian Brushwood at a bar and he put his hand down on the table and said, "I have four normal quarters under my hand" I wouldn't take it at face value. He doesn't have a history of lying about himself just to self-promote, so it's low to claim he's lying about an illness.
His YouTube channels have millions of subscribers, and he announced his illness on Twitter to people who already follow him, so I don't see what he has to gain by saying that he caught a disease that millions of others already have. It doesn't make him stand out.

I'm with Tom. Brian is an attention seeker, don't believe a word he says.

I think he's fine--his "Scam Nation" videos have been coming out regularly. Instead of performing out in bars, he's at home in his garage (?) with his daughter and his friend.
