Yesterday, up and coming celebrity anti-Scientologist Brendan Tighe was on Meghan Kelly’s chat show, where he claimed that Scarlett Johansson auditioned with the Church of Scientology to be Tom Cruise’s girlfriend.
Johanssen released a statement to the magazine INSIDER regarding Brendan’s claim:
This caused celebrity Anti-Scientologist Aaron Smith Levin to take to twitter this morning in a desperate attempt to explain how Scarlett Johansson didn’t know she was being auditioned for being Tom Cruise’s girlfriend back in 2004 (14 years ago), and so that’s why up-and-coming celebrity anti-Scientologist Brendan Tighe wasn’t wrong when he claimed she auditioned for this on Meghan Kelly’s TV show yesterday.
One question cuts through the bullshit:
Can a person really audition for something they do not know they are auditioning for?
The answer, of course, is no. And so the whole idiotic hootenanny here is just to get your attention. It’s click bait, telling stories from 14 years ago that never really happened, using the names of famous actors and actresses to make Scientology look ridiculous or evil.
But another much more important question has to be asked:
Is this valid criticism of Scientology? Are any abuses actually being exposed here? Is this anything illegal or even immoral, for God’s sake?
No. Criticism of Scientology should stick to important things that need to be exposed, things that are actually happening now, not 14 years ago, and the exposure of which is vital to warn the public so that they can make informed decisions about Scientology.
It’s clear now that celebrity Anti-Scientologists like Brendan Tighe and Aaron Smith Levin, and so many other anti-Scientology attention whores, have completely lost the plot.
The party’s over, dudes. No criminal acts by the Church of Scientology have been exposed. There are no congressional sub committees looking into abuses of any kind regarding Scientology. There are no raids by law enforcement. And there is no review of Scientology’s tax exempt status.
So what do you do in your desperate attempt to keep the attention on yourselves?
Send in the clowns.
ADDITION: And now, further evidence has emerged of a sundering among formerly lock-step celebrity anti Scientologists: Tony Ortega is claiming that Marc Headley’s original story from 2008 suggests Brendan Tighe might have embellished what he saw.
HEY GUYS – Is David Miscavige in prison yet?
