Las Vegas Illusionist Criss Angel Plans Revolting Trick

Luxor headliner Criss Angel is up to what many would say is a callous, dirty trick.   Courting controversy once again, this time it’s for a stunt that’s likely to shock, if not offend, many U.S. troops and their families. 

Angel, the star of Cirque du Soleil’s “Criss Angel Believe” playing at the Luxor in Las Vegas, plans to open Season 5 of his “Mindfreak” on A&E television August 12 by walking over numerous improvised explosive devices (IEDs) when filming the episode at Edwards Air Force Base in California.  

IEDs are deployed as roadside bombs in the Iraqi and Afghanistan wars, responsible for tragically killing thousands of servicemen and civilians. 

Angel says the stunt will be more dangerous than anything he’s ever performed; entailing him to tread gently over not one, but seven levels of the lethal, explosive mines. 

Critics are revolting, not sympathetic with Angel, blasting comments ranging from “just plaint tacky” to saying that if his psychic powers are that great that he’d be more useful in combat zones saving lives.
