Scientology Fails

If there’s a hero in the Danny Masterson trial, it’s Leah Remini.  When the so-called Church of Scientology ramped up efforts to get Masterson acquitted of numerous rape convictions, the actress exposed details of the campaign – including how the “church” engaged in “a conspiracy to cover up crimes of sexual violence”.  When Masterson was sentenced to 30 years in prison, Remini was in the courtroom.  She wasted no time in sharing her thoughts, Tweeting, “For over two decades, Danny Masterson avoided accountability for his crimes.  While Danny was the only one sentenced, his conviction and sentence are indictments against Scientology, its operatives, and its criminal leader, David Miscavige.”  BTW, the diminutive dictator’s wife Shelly is still MIA. 

A codicil to the Masterson saga came from Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis.  When letters the couple wrote on behalf of Masterson went public (they all worked together on That ‘70s Show), they were lambasted for their perceived tone-deaf efforts.  Kutcher and Kunis said that they were asked to write the letters by Danny’s family, and they simply wanted to share their experiences about someone they’ve known for 25 years.  “We are aware of the pain that has been caused by the character letters we wrote on behalf of Danny Masterson,” said Kutcher.  “They were intended for the judge to read and not to undermine the testimony of the victims or re-traumatize them in any way.  We would never want to do that.  And we’re sorry if that has taken place,” added Kunis.  “We support victims.  We have done this historically through our work and will continue to do so in the future.”
