Uh oh! 30-40 people were burned 🔥 at a fire-walking event hosted by motivational speaker Tony Robbins on Thursday night. At least five attendees were hospitalized for burns from walking on hot coal.

Tony's camp responded with:

“In Dallas tonight, someone not familiar with the fire walk observed the event and called 911 erroneously reporting hundreds of people requiring medical attention for severe burns. While we are grateful to the quick and robust response from Dallas emergency services, only 5 of 7,000 participants requested any examination beyond what was readily available on site. We are pleased to have completed another successful fire walk for 7,000 guests and look forward to the remainder of an outstanding weekend with them.”

But who's actually responsible: Is it Tony for encouraging people to walk on hot coal? Or is it the participants' fault for listening to him? 

The obvious answer for some is Tony. He asked the attendees to trust him and walk on hot coal, which objectively is not a smart idea. But then again, he asked and THEY listened. Yes, they are victims, but some believe they are more to blame for listening to Tony's ridiculous requests. 

While some think Tony is fraudulent, his fans are coming to his rescue. More than 7,000 people walked on fire and very few were actually hurt. There are certain precautions in place at these kind of events and participants know the risks. But as the saying goes, if you play with fire, you might get burned!

Who should be held accountable: #TonyRobbinsAtFault or #ParticipantsAtFault?

Some are poking fun at the poor burn victims, but some believe it shows how they are more at fault for participating.

Many blame Tony for telling people to do something dangerous — when they trusted in him.
