The news is out: [Magic Castle, the exclusive club for magicians in Los Angeles, is facing accusations of sexual assault, harassment, discrimination and racism leveled against its management, members and performers.
As detailed in an extensive report from the Los Angeles Times on Friday, former employees said they reported instances of sexual harassment and assault to Magic Castle managers, who they said did nothing in response and later retaliated against them for speaking up.
Randy Sinnott Jr., the president of the organization’s board of directors, told The Times in a statement, “The Academy of Magical Arts and its Board work to provide a safe and welcoming environment and experience. All claims brought to the attention of the Board or management are treated seriously and professionally.”]
A safe and welcoming environment and experience includes sexual assault, harassment, discrimination and racism?
