Honestly, Faustus is a big fat jerk. When the peasants accuse them of magical misdoing, does he defend himself? No, he just does more magical misdeeds and makes them unable to speak, so no one will know the wrong he's done. While the scene is meant to be funny (and don't get us wrong, it totally is), it also reflects rather poorly on Faustus's character.
