About that Pervert Magician

I got quite a lot of emails suggesting magician Shane Wright to be a Weekly Magic Failure, for having had sex with a twelve-year-old girl. HERE IS THE STORY. I will not do so.

He is not a magic failure... but a human failure. There is a line I need to draw somewhere.

Yes, this goes beyond... However, there is an issue over using one's profession, be it magic or medicine, for example, to exploit people sexually. Taking the example of a doctor in a similar situation, they are not only failing as humans, but also as doctors. Professional ethics should count for something.

On the other hand, this is child abuse, so the magic aspect does, rightly, go out of the window.

What an awful story.
