Scientologists Don’t Want You to Talk Bad About Scientology

I don’t know anything about Scientology except that Tom Cruise won’t come out of the closet. And he doesn’t like anyone talking bad about Scientology.

In fact, he tried to get CBS to pull a 60 Minutes piece on Scientology. That mission proved to be impossible though as CBS was like, “Nah. Fuck off.”

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, former Saved by the Bell star Leah Remini has the full details.

Remini: I got pressure to call Les Moonves at CBS to try and get a 60 Minutes report squashed. I got a call from the church and Tom to call Les Moonves and use my influence to squash the story.

THR: Tom Cruise was on that call?

Remini: Yep. So I called Les Moonves, even though I was really uncomfortable with it. And he said, “Listen — you’re not the only one who has called me about this and I have no right to interject my opinion of what I like or don’t like with the news organization of CBS and I will absolutely not engage this conversation. I’ll tell you or anyone else who calls me.” He said, “I don’t give a shit if it’s you, if it’s Tom Cruise, if it’s Jenna Elfman, you’re all going to get the same story from me.” And I said, “OK.” And then I called them back and said, “Hey, I tried.”

THR: What did they say?

Remini: They just weren’t happy that I couldn’t squash the story. I said, “I’m just a fucking actress on television and I can’t demand that my boss take a fucking report off the air.”

This is nothing compared to the Scientology Gods wanting a reference to Katie Holmes removed from King of Queens because she “was in good graces with the church.”

So, now we know more about Scientology. Basically, if you try to talk bad about them, they will complain to Leah Remini.
