I am publishing the complete statement because it's so harrowing and detailed, and I think everyone needs to read it to understand what Danny Masterson and Scientology put these women through.
WOW. “To my knowledge, my mom is still alive.”
Scientology is shit.
That was heart wrenching. She’s wrong about one thing though - he didn’t take her will. She is a strong and powerful woman, whether she knows it or not. She’s making a difference where others failed.
My mother, a victim of femicide from whom I was estranged, didn’t protect me either. In fact, she bailed the perpetrator out of jail when I was just 13. As a mother myself, I can never understand it. The person you least expect to betray you is your mother that held you in her womb. My heart bleeds for Jen B and the other victims. I hope the conviction and sentence stick. He is hardly father and husband of the year, the way that Kunis and Kutcher shamefully described him in their letter defending a serial rapist. The only people that deserved a defense were the victims. How is that lost on anyone with a conscience?
Scientology is barbaric
I’m glad she quit sharing, she wasn’t required to tell us more. She said enough. If it got through to even one person who has been defending Danny, she said more than enough. Having been treated similarly in scientology, I have no doubt she’s barely touching the surface of what he and his enablers did to her soul.
People are lucky to survive scientology. It is a mind f*#k to beat all others. For her to have gotten out of it and so bravely spoken like that in open court is breathtaking. I am in awe off all 3 of the JDs. I hope they understand just how many people out here think they walk on water.
That just kept getting worse... my god
Holy shit. Thank you Jane Doe #1 for your bravery and for sharing some of your more vulnerable moments. I’m so sorry this happened to you ❤️
GOD DAAAAAAMN...THIS is utterly mind-blowing and gut-wrenching. Thanks Jen B and Yashar for sharing this. May you both continue to be loved and supported and empowered by friends and family.
THIS IS WHY Scientology and its criminality needs to be exposed, to have its tax exemption revoked, and to have its officers and minions prosecuted, fined, and incarcerated to the fullest extent of the law.
I'm not in scientology but it's my life. But my abuse began when I was 4 by a 16 year old in 1979 while I was in court my kindergarten class was learning me , no not me I was accused of being a liar and he only pled guilty after I , a 5 year old girl who had to tell 3 grown men what he made me do to him and what happened after and after that until I got out of his house. I was sexually assaulted by my family members many times and by different people and I never told anyone after the court when I was 5. Suicide always sounds like a great idea too. I couldn't have any babies because of the abuse either. I'm the dirty little secret in the closet and I don't have any of my own family except for my aunt who will ever speak to me. Because the men who assaulted me were nice guys.
Wow when she mentions how her husband knows better than to ever walk in on her in the shower I relate to that heavily. I was r@ped in the shower by my adopted dad. It was absolutely horrible & I get so paranoid taking a shower bc he had actually walked in on me while I was in the shower….
She is so brave - I commend her for speaking out against the horrors of Scientology and the violence it perpetrates.
Thank you for posting this. I think it's so important that their voices be heard in full.
This was one of the most heartbreaking, honest articles I have read in a very long time. I wish the survivors healing and peace.
From a harrowing life in an abusive CULT, to being a heroine to all women. Continue to walk with grace and dignity.
The horror in this impact statement. The absolute vileness of scientology and everyone associated with it.
After reading this, I feel his sentence was appropriate. May this woman have the peace and healing she so deserves.
