Scientology and the Aftermath is back for another season after an explosive Season 2 premiere. There were some big claims last season of sex abuse, forced abortions, and imprisonment of followers. It’s tough to even picture what the show will cover next.
After the first season, Leah Remini has continued to speak out against Scientology and some of its most notable followers. But what has she said exactly, and how has Scientology responded? Here are seven things to know about what happened after Season 1.
1. Remini claimed Tom Cruise is diabolical
The star held a Reddit AMA and of course, fans were curious about what she had to say about Scientology’s biggest action star. A person asked her if she believed Tom Cruise was a good person. She then quickly got to the point with the following answer:
No! Just going to get straight to it, no! There is a public persona of the guy who looks at you directly in the eye and shakes your hand and hugs you and is an attentive person to you and there’s the person behind the mask who is a completely different person. Someone could say we all have that — what we are to the public and who we are behind the scenes, but the people who are around Tom [Cruise] and work for Tom, not even people who are Scientologists, they will say he is diaboloical. People who’ve worked with me will say I can be an a**hole — all actors can be. That is different. He’s very similar to David Miscavige, they could be twins.
