    How the Church of Scientology seemingly protected Danny Masterson amid rape allegations

    By Diana Falzone, Fox News

    Quote:

    Scientologist actor Danny Masterson has been accused of rape by four women — and the Church of Scientology claims it knew nothing of the allegations against its longtime member.

    However, people deeply connected with the church say members did have knowledge of Masterson's alleged behavior way before the media reports.

    Several sources told Fox News that the Church of Scientology systematically covers up misdeeds of its most prominent members — and Masterson, they say, is no exception.

    Chris Shelton, a former member of the Church of Scientology and Sea Org from 1987-2012, said the church silences members who want to take complaints to law enforcement.

    “The church works to protect the church first,” he told Fox News.

    He said the next most important thing to Scientologists is to protect the members of the church and its public image.

    “[The Church of Scientology] considers anyone outside the church to be a ‘wog,’ which is a defamatory word describing non-members... It creates an ‘us versus them’ mentality [and tells] members that ‘wogs’ at law enforcement won’t protect them.”

    Tony Ortega, editor of “The Underground Bunker,” told Fox News Scientologists are “not allowed to file a lawsuit against another Scientologist or report another Scientologist to the authorities.”

    Ortega said this has directly impacted the women accusing Masterson of rape.

    “For example, one of Masterson’s accusers … went to the church in 2003 to report the incident,” Ortega claimed.

    Citing inside knowledge of the church, he alleged Scientology leaders asked the accuser to undergo “intensive counseling from May to December 2003, going back into her past lives to find out what evil thing she did then to cause this now.

    "That is how Scientology handled sexual assault,” he added.

    Ortega, a journalist who has dedicated his time to investigating the Church of Scientology, claimed members of the church are threatened with being ostracized from the tight-knit community if they go to authorities with sexual assault allegations.

    Shelton said he saw similar practices during his time as a member of the church.

    Shelton said Scientologists use an “internal justice system” that utilizes fear mongering to stop alleged sexual assault victims from going to the police. Shelton also said the interview sessions with alleged victims within the church are routinely filmed.

    Ortega said one of Masterson’s accusers was “brutally interrogated” by a senior member of the organization.

    “At the same time, Danny was being interrogated [by a senior member],” Ortega claimed. “… It would have been videotaped. They are manic about keeping records. To my knowledge, none of this was given to the LAPD.”

    Ortega said when the alleged victim took her case to the LAPD to claim the “That ‘70s Show” star attacked her, the church stepped in once again.

    “A little more than a year after the assault, the church bombarded the LAPD with affidavit after affidavit from church members defending Masterson. The church rallied around him.”

    Shelton predicts the church will stand by Masterson, even as his public image begins to crumble. The actor denies any wrongdoing.

    “They will keep lying, lying and lying,” Shelton said of the church. “They’ll cover up and double down.”

    Masterson was fired by Netflix earlier this week, ending his run on the streaming service’s series “The Ranch.”

    He has denied the claims against him, saying in part, "Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and determined them to be without merit. I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one."

    In a statement to the media, the Church of Scientology denied it was involved in stifling the claims of Masterson’s accusers.

    “The church adamantly denies that it ever ignores any allegations of criminal behavior, especially at the expense of alleged victims. What is being stated is utterly untrue. This has nothing to do with religion. This story is being manipulated to push a bigoted agenda. The church follows all laws and cooperates with law enforcement. Any statement or implication to the contrary is false.”

    Netflix Fires Exec Who Told Danny Masterson Accuser "We Don't Believe" Rape Claims

    By Natalie Jarvey, Hollywood Reporter

    Excerpt:

    Andy Yeatman, the director of global kids content at Netflix, was let go from Netflix on Dec. 11 over his early December comments, made on the sidelines of a children's soccer game. The Netflix exec is said to have not known that he was speaking to one of the accusers.

    "Mr. Yeatman is no longer employed at Netflix," a Netflix spokeswoman confirmed in a statement. Reached by email, Yeatman declined to comment.

    Netflix fires executive who told alleged victim that the company didn't believe her Danny Masterson assault claims

    By William Hughes, The A.V. Club

    Excerpt:

    The irony, of course, is that without Yeatman’s blunt assertions, it seems unlikely the company would ever have moved forward on its own; investigations into Masterson’s actions had allegedly “stalled” of late — with some people pointing to his connections to the Church Of Scientology as a major contributing factor. Yeatman’s public faux pas appears to have left Netflix with no choice in the matter, though; the company announced Masterson’s departure just a day or two after the Yeatman story broke.

    The scientology crime syndicate has known about Danny Masterson's "2-D abberations" for many years and keeps selling him their quack psychotherapy and concealment of his activities from police. As long as Danny Boy keeps paying for playing, the scienazis will deny rapes.

  11. Two things.

    1. Even if these ladies are correct, and Victim A is crazy, there are still THREE OTHER WOMEN who have made credible allegations of rape against Masterson. They are defending an alleged serial rapist, unless they can discredit ALL of these alleged victims, not just one.

    2. At this particular cultural moment, it is perhaps unwise for these ladies to attempt to discredit a woman who is speaking up about sexual violence, especially if the alleged behavior has been corroborated by the accounts of other women. #metoo #feminism #pitchforks #torches #mob

    Top Talent Agency Cuts Ties With Danny Masterson Amid Rape Allegations

    The news comes a month after Netflix fired him from “The Ranch.”

    By Yashar Ali, HuffPost, January 4, 2018

    Quote:

    The United Talent Agency, a top Hollywood agency, has cut ties with longtime client actor Danny Masterson, who is facing multiple rape allegations. The news comes a month after Netflix fired him from “The Ranch.” Masterson co-starred in and co-produced the show with actor Ashton Kutcher, whom he previously starred alongside on the sitcom “That ’70s Show.”

    In response to a request for comment, the agency, which has represented the actor for 20 years, said, “UTA no longer represents Danny Masterson.” A source familiar with Masterson’s relationship with UTA said the decision to cut ties was made some time back. HuffPost first learned of the news from a source close to Masterson.

    The Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office have been conducting an investigation into multiple allegations of rape against Masterson for almost a year. Four women have accused Masterson of violently raping them in the early 2000s. Three of the women were members of the Church of Scientology; Masterson is a prominent Scientologist. Masterson has denied all allegations of rape and said the encounters in question were consensual.

    Masterson was ostensibly fired by Netflix (a network spokesperson said he was written off the show “The Ranch”) after a Netflix executive told one of the women that top company brass did not believe Masterson’s accusers. The executive, Andy Yeatman, revealed the alleged opinion of company executives after the woman asked him why Masterson was allowed to star on one of their shows while facing multiple rape allegations. Yeatman did not know the woman was a Masterson accuser when he told her the victims were not seen as credible.

    Netflix confirmed at the time of the report that Yeatman made the comments. “Mr. Yeatman’s comments were careless, uninformed and do not represent the views of the company,” the company said. Yeatman was also later fired by Netflix.

    Kirstie Alley Calls Journalist “Hateful” For Scientology Posts

    By Greg Evans, Deadline

    Quote:

    Kirstie Alley, actress and Scientologist, called writer Yashar Ali “hateful” after the Huffington Post writer pointed out her seemingly contradictory responses to rape allegations against Danny Masterson and Paul Haggis.

    “Man, you really hate this religion,” Alley tweeted today. “What religion are you Sir? Just curious if you write bigoted shit about all religions or just this one? I think it’s YOU who is really enjoying this downfall [of Haggis] as it gives you another opportunity to be hateful.

    “Go on with your hateful self.” (See all the tweets below.)

    Ali, who has been covering (and breaking stories about) Hollywood’s sexual harassment scandals, had earlier posted a string of tweets about Scientology and Alley. “The Church of Scientology is certainly enjoying Paul Haggis’ downfall,” noted one, while another posted screenshots of earlier Alley tweets that seemed to suggest her varying opinions on recent rape investigations against Scientologist Masterson and ex-Scientologist Haggis.

    In the first screen-grabbed Alley tweet from last November, the actress, apparently referencing the Masterson allegations, wrote that “innocent until proven guilty is a fairly sane concept” and “rumors cause witchhunts.”

    But in response to allegations against Haggis, Alley has tweeted that “karma is a bitch” and, later, “this is gonna be an interesting year for the bad guys.”

    “Like all Scientologists,” Ali wrote in his tweets about the actress, “Kirstie is a hypocrite.”

    It didn’t end there. Here is the Twitter back & forth, so far:

    Well, @yashar has pointed out your clear hypocrisy on sexual assault with Masterson (you defended by saying innocent until proven guilty) and Haggis (you declared him guilty). What’s the difference between the two and why the willingness to defend one, but condemn the other?

    PROSECUTORS PREPARE CHARGES CARRYING LIFE SENTENCE FOR DANNY MASTERSON

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker, February 14, 2018

    Quote:

    The Underground Bunker has learned that the Special Circumstances Committee in the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office has approved charging Scientology actor Danny Masterson with multiple violent rapes under a sex crimes penal code that carries with it a life sentence in prison.

    Also known as California’s “one-strike law,” state penal code 667.61 has been described as “among the state’s stiffest criminal sentencing provisions,” not only because it carries penalties of 15-to-Life and 25-to-Life for sex crimes, but also because the 1994 code, amended under “Jessica’s Law” in 2006, has no statute of limitations.

    After approval by the DA’s powerful internal committee made up of managers in the DA’s office, the case now waits for approval from the District Attorney herself, Jackie Lacey.

    Strange days for a woman accusing Danny Masterson of rape — and for her rocker husband

    By Tony Ortega, April 27, 2018

    Quote:

    “The dog was yelping in pain,” Cedric Bixler-Zavala says, telling us about a nightmare scenario that took place in October when he got home after a grueling tour with his band, At The Drive In.

    At the time, home for Bixler, 43, his wife Chrissie Carnell, 39, and their five-year-old twin boys was a house in Austin where a lot of strange things had been going on for several months.

    The day before, Chrissie had noticed two men in a car following her. One of them was aiming a camera at her, and when she sped up, so did the two men. They only peeled off when she turned in to the parking lot of Austin’s police heaquarters. Panicked and unsure what to do, she made a phone call to a law enforcement official in Los Angeles.

    Acting on his advice, Chrissie decided to take her boys to a hotel to wait for Cedric to arrive home the next day. She rushed to their house, grabbed some clothes and the dogs, took them to a kennel, then picked up the twins and checked into a hotel.

    After Cedric arrived the next day, they went back to the house and noticed that a pile of their mail was missing and other signs that someone had been in the house.

    They made notes of those differences, as they’d become accustomed to, and then they went to pick up their animals.

    But that night, Chrissie’s favorite dog, seven-year-old Ethel, kept barking suddenly like she was in agony.

    “We thought her leg was broken or something,” Cedric says. “Chrissie took the dog to the vet. And then she called and said Ethel wasn’t going to make it through the night. She died in Chrissie’s arms.” The vet explained to them that a membrane in Ethel’s throat was ruptured, and there was no way to treat it.

    Cedric and Chrissie wanted answers, and the kennel did a complete investigation, checking its cameras to make sure that nothing had been done to the dog while it was in their care.

    “Something had been done to Ethel while we were both out of the house,” Cedric says, pointing to the time — about an hour — after the men following Chrissie had abandoned the chase and before she was able to get back home to pick up the dogs.

    “I think Ethel was kicked in the throat, so the membrane in her throat was severed,” he says.

    It was the single worst moment in the months the family has spent being followed, hacked, and harassed — and all of which is being logged and taken seriously by law enforcement.

    Danny Masterson’s Rape Accusers Slam Netflix Over ‘The Ranch’ Return: ‘You Rub Salt in Our Wounds’

    Two women who have accused the actor/Scientologist of rape are speaking out against Netflix for airing his final episodes — and wonder if he’s still making money off the series.

    By Amy Zimmerman, The Daily Beast, June 15, 2018

    Quote:

    On Friday, Netflix will release a new batch of episodes of The Ranch—the last ones co-starring Danny Masterson, who was written out of the series in the wake of sexual-assault allegations.

    The decision to air a fired actor’s final set of performances might sound strange, especially since the streaming service swiftly fired Ed Westwick, Kevin Spacey and Louis C.K. after their sexual misconduct allegations surfaced, but it fits into the larger narrative around this particular #MeToo controversy — one that Netflix failed to address until the last possible moment, and only after extreme pressure.

    In light of The Ranch’s “Part 5” return, one of Masterson’s accusers, Chrissie Carnell Bixler, told The Daily Beast that she believes Netflix ought to be ashamed of their actions. “We get it, Netflix,” she wrote in a statement. “You don’t believe us. You rub salt in our wounds. Is Danny Masterson still co-executive producer of The Ranch? You knew you had to fire him, but you do a bunch of reshoots so you can finish our rapist’s storyline up and give him a respectable send off. And there he is on TV in the new season. Kevin Spacey? Fired on the spot. Production halted. Ed Westwick? Louis C.K.? Are there active investigations into these accused men? Do you just not believe us? Do you agree with Jenni Weinman and the Church of Scientology when they say you cannot rape your wife or girlfriend? Are you afraid of Scientology’s Fair Game?” (Masterson is a lifelong Scientologist, and Weinman is his publicist.)

    “Fair Game Law,” according to journalist Tony Ortega, who has reported extensively on Scientology and on the Masterson case, was first introduced by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard in 1965. In 1967, Hubbard refined the policy by announcing that enemies of the Church may be “deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.”

    While The Church of Scientology’s public stance is that the “Fair Game” policy was canceled in 1968, Ortega published a lengthy report in April detailing the Church’s alleged intimidation campaign against Bixler and her husband, musician Cedric Bixler-Zavala of At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta. The couple believes that they have been “followed, hacked, and harassed”—and say that the campaign was in retaliation for Bixler speaking out about her assault.

    “Cedric and Chrissie continue to wait to see what charges might get filed against Masterson,” Ortega’s article concluded. “And they continue to deal with bizarre goings on in LA — again with their trash, and their car doors being opened, and with their phones and their email accounts.”

    Bobette Riales came forward with her own sexual-assault allegation against Masterson in December when she tweeted, “I stayed quiet long enough. Danny Masterson repeatedly raped me.” She told The Daily Beast that, “for Netflix to have taken such stern reaction and action regarding Kevin or Louis and then also firing Danny as well…Why now are they continuing to support in a half-ass way as a co-producer, meaning he still gets a check, and also airing shows after he was already fired?” Riales confirmed that she is a part of the LAPD case, and said that she has “every intention to keep speaking out.”

    When asked if Masterson would be maintaining his executive producer credit on The Ranch, Netflix did not respond to requests for comment.

    Having never seen these letters before, Bixler says she was extremely disturbed after reading the passages pertaining to her alleged sexual assault. “The fact that I now know that David Miscavige knew that Danny Masterson has raped at least two women is just devastating…the Church and the COB David Miscavige KNEW and they did nothing to help Danny or stop him. They should have helped Victim B and me instead of punishing us. They should have driven us to the LAPD and had us report him. Had they done the right thing, he wouldn’t have been able to hurt anyone else.”

    The mother of Victim B ends her January 2004 letter with a desperate plea: “The fate of any young girl going anywhere near Danny lies in our hands, please help me.”

    Masterson witness fears for safety as investigation drags on and on | The Underground Bunker

    By Tony Ortega, July 8, 2018

    Quote:

    Amy Zimmerman at the Daily Beast dropped a bomb on the Danny Masterson story last night. She revealed that the LAPD and Los Angeles District Attorney’s office have copies of letters written by the mother of one of Masterson’s accusers — the woman we’re calling “Victim B” — and those letters suggest that in 2004 the Church of Scientology was persecuting two different women who had made rape allegations against Masterson. One of the letters, in fact, was addressed to church leader David Miscavige.

    “I have seen [the documents] and believe these are 100 percent authentic,” actress Leah Remini told the Daily Beast. “These match exactly everything I learned in Scientology and are consistent with my understanding and experience about how Scientology treats victims of crimes. I believe that there are many more documents contained in Scientology files that are required to be kept by Scientology. Those documents would support every aspect of what these victims recounted.”

    The letters also corroborate what we’ve previously reported about the allegations made by two of the four women who have come forward in the LAPD/LADA investigation. We have written at length about what Victim B alleges she experienced on an April night in 2003 at a party at Danny Masterson’s house, and the punishment that the Church of Scientology later put Victim B through, requiring her to spend tens of thousands of dollars on expensive interrogations.

    The church denied to the Daily Beast that it persecutes victims who report crimes by fellow Scientologists. “The Church adamantly denies that it ever ignores any allegations of criminal behavior, especially at the expense of alleged victims. What is being stated is utterly untrue. This has nothing to do with religion. This story is being manipulated to push a bigoted agenda. The Church follows all laws and cooperates with law enforcement. Any statement or implication to the contrary is false.”

    The current investigation got going in the Fall of 2016 when three of the victims came forward (one of them was Victim B, who had first gone to police in 2004). We revealed in March 2017 that the investigation was going on. The LAPD initially handed off its investigation to DA Jackie Lacey’s office in April 2017. More than a year later, there is still no word at all about whether charges against Masterson are going to be filed.

    In the meantime, as we explained recently in a lengthy piece about one of the accusers, Chrissie Carnell Bixler, and her husband, rock musician Cedric Bixler-Zavala, the accusers have reported instances of harassment to the police, including the mysterious death of Chrissie and Cedric’s dog.

    We can now report that a key witness in the investigation — a witness we first quoted in our initial March 2017 story — has been undergoing frightening harassment in recent weeks, and is afraid for their safety.

    This same crucial witness was quoted at length in Zimmerman’s story last night, providing key details about what they saw at the 2003 party at Masterson’s house when Victim B came down from Danny’s room. “At some point about an hour or an hour and a half later I recall seeing [Victim B], who came up to me…and she said, ‘Oh my God Danny just raped me.’ Her hair was still a bit wet and she had bare feet. I remember feeling shocked and then Luke saying ‘no that’s not what happened!’…I remember trying to help her as well get some water in the kitchen and she was sort of was stumbling around and Luke and Danny wanting to get her back upstairs… They didn’t want me to interfere though and I remember thinking that they would get her back upstairs and she would sleep it off and be better,” the witness is quoted as saying from a report made to the LAPD.

    One of the things that stunned us about this investigation was that although we spoke to this crucial witness for our March 3, 2017 story, they were only then called in for the first time for what they said was a brief and rude interaction with the LAPD. They weren’t interviewed again, at a proper length, until May 2018.

    “This has been emotionally exhausting these last 18 months. But I knew what I had to do and I know this is going to help a lot of people,” the witness told us last night.

    Just the night before, the witness was in a panic, telling us they had received some frightening text messages and then a strange person had showed up at their house — and they were unable to get through to the LAPD detective handling the investigation.

    “[We] were talking on the back patio. [We] heard a car door slam across the street from our front yard. I went out there to go investigate with a flashlight. Some white dude with scraggly long hair and glasses in a 2008 white Dodge Durango just stared at me. He looked back to his phone while he was on it. Stared at me a second time. I went back to grab my camera and he took off.”

    The witness allowed us to see the frightening texts, which included a reference to their actual address and that they teach acting and dance classes at the house:

    The witness’s neighbor spoke to us as well, saying that the truck had been parked outside the witness’s house on at least the last two nights.

    “There’s been a white truck out here the last couple of days, and he’s been mad-doggin’ the house. If you go out there, he just tries to stare you down. The guy is definitely watching the house,” the neighbor says.

    The witness says other cars have been seen there, and their trash has been dug through, all of which they have reported to the police. But if these are attempts to intimidate them, the witness says it isn’t going to work.

    “I told Chrissie earlier. I’ve had it. I’m in this for the duration. I’m going nowhere.”

    This cult is sinister. No other "church" does this to victims.
