Default Lucky Talisman vs Tinfoil Hat

Our party had a disagreement regarding the use of a Lucky Talisman to pass the effect of a curse to a player wearing a Tinfoil Hat.

Player X kicked down a door and was hit with a curse (Change Class) from said door. Player X wanted to use a Lucky Talisman to pass the effect of the curse to Player Y.

Player Y believed that their equipped Tinfoil Hat would make them immune from the curse reasoning that X was casting the curse onto them.

Player X disagreed saying that, since the curse was from Kicking Open a Door and not cast by another player, the Tinfoil Hat does not apply.

Thoughts?

The Lucky Talisman is not a player "casting" a Curse; it just allows a Curse to affect a player next to you rather than you, yourself. The source of that Curse is unchanged.

So then, since the curse was not originally cast by another player, the Tinfoil Hat would not protect player Y from the effect of the curse that was passed on through the Lucky Talisman. Correct?

Yeah. The source is still Kicking Down the Door, it's just as if the player wearing the hat had Kicked instead.
