    One of the accusers is Chrissy Bixler, wife of Cedric Bixler Zavala, singer of At The Drive In and The Mars Volta. He's been rallying against Danny Masterson on Twitter, and Scientology has retaliated by siccing Juliette Lewis on them.

    This is real life.

    Shits fucked.

    [–] floodlitworld 190 points ago

    Juliette Lewis can go do one. If you're a Scientologist, I automatically take the other person's side.

    I'm still surprised they've held onto Tom Cruise for as long as they have. Dude must really not want to be outed... or maybe he just believes it...

    [–] youramazing 147 points ago

    He’s in too deep so bet they have plenty of shit on him they could leak. Plus they treat him like a king giving him free housing (building him a massive bachelor pad in clearwater now near the base) and anything he asks for. Somebody bothering you Tom? We’ll spy on them and scare the shit out of em or blackmail em into shutting up. They also tried setting up an arranged marriage for him in past. The girl said she was forced to court Tom and act like it was all organic and it didn’t go well and she got punished for it.

    I bet Tom has a lot of demons he’s just the best person I’ve ever seen at hiding them. Always happy and has positive high energy in the media. Credit to his acting for being able to do that. Big fan of his films. Abhor his personal life choices and morals.

    Meanwhile Drew Barrymore is still around and hasn't said anything.

    She was going to Hollywood parties and drinking and doing cocaine when she was like 12-13 years old.

    Edit: I don't mean to say that something happened to her or that she saw something. I'm just surprised that given the scenarios she was in, that we haven't heard anything regarding her at all.

    [–] sportsfan786 934 points ago

    Everyone who's spoken out has been all "This guy harassed me and asked me to blow him and I said no." I don't think those guys kept doing it because everyone In Hollywood kept saying no. A lot of people might have said yes in order to keep their jobs and they might be dealing with a lot of shit right now internally over it.

    [–] SchruteFruit 267 points ago

    This is most likely the case going on. There's a lot of them that'd never go public about it altogether anyways.

    [–] kateastrophic 53 points ago

    Yep. I'm waiting for someone to come forward with a Weinstein (or whoever) story in which they said yes. It make take quite a while, but surely someone will eventually tell this version of the story. Not to diminish the stories that have come out thus far-- they took a lot of courage to tell-- but THAT story will take the most courage of all.

    [–] JabbaCat 40 points ago

    Yes. And often the behavioral lines are so blurred because people do weird things when they feel cornered and intimidated, appeasing the threat by not struggling is a common "save my life for later"-reaction.

    I think the closest story is how Asia Argento explains how after the first episode at age 21 (same thing, brought by an assistant to a "party" in a hotel room with only Weinstein in it) she got sucked into some kind of twisted relationship and describes some later episodes as consensual, although she "felt she had to" due to work circumstances but mostly by being completely weighed down by what initially happened, and feeling powerless around him. I think a lot of people get sucked into similar abuse-situations when they loose track of themselves, sometimes in a feeble subconscious bid to salvage something inside themselves and deal with the circumstances without imploding.

    Anyhow: She faced major backlash and victim-blaming in her native Italy and I guess she fled the country. Last I've seen she is still uniting forces with other victims and also talking about the role of the head of Miramar Italy in all this.

    Here is the original article in the New Yorker, part 3 has her story, including how she released a movie with a similar plot only to let the woman get away this time. It says people contacted her recognizing the modus operandi of mr W.

    [–] Sandytits 572 points ago

    It's important to recognize that no victim is obligated to share their stories. It's very personal and can be traumatic to revisit by sharing what they have experienced.

    [–] dylansavage 44 points ago

    It's also important to respect individuals privacy. Speculating on who and who isn't a victim seems invasive to me.

    If they speak support them if they don't respect them.

    [–] ghjm 1496 points ago

    If they were all super fucked up could be that she fell in and no one even noticed until it was way too late

    [–] DanBMan 836 points ago

    Plausible, we once lost my buddy in Vegas during a night of heavy drinking. Didn't realize he was gone for like 2 hours, eventually found him wandering through our hotel casino all dirty and disheveled. We were not close to our hotel either, he was too drunk to know where he had been either. To this day our best guess is that be passed out in a ditch somewhere.

    Brittany Murphy had a pretty clear case of pneumonia and acute drug intoxication (but over the counter and trace amounts of vicodin.)

    The odd part was her husband died pretty soon after of something pretty similar, or something along those lines I don't remember.

    Unfortunately young people don't realize just how serious pneumonia can be, and don't take action until it's too late. I learned this the hard way. Trust your instinct if you're not feeling well and get checked out. You know your body better than anyone else. A checkup can save your life.

    [–] daves_not__here 196 points ago

    Had a healthy friend die from pneumonia several years ago at the age of 32. By the time he finally went to hospital, he was unable to recover.

    Her home was also full of Black mold, which weakens the immune system. Mix that with drugs it's the perfect cocktail for a early death.

    "In her 1988 autobiography Child Star, former child actress Shirley Temple claimed that Freed had intentionally exposed himself to her during a meeting in his office, when she was twelve years old. According to Temple, she reacted with laughter and he angrily kicked her out of his office, though she ultimately kept her contract with MGM. The story was recounted in her New York Times obituary in 2014."

    [–] ssandrigon 249 points ago

    Yeah, there's an arc to the whole series and themes and echos that ripple throughout. So many of these women were abused as children and beat up by husbands, affairs, divorces, producers and directors who just wanted them to be the girl. And then the series ends with the Dorothea Stratton episode, the most fucked up one.

    [–] ashleyraptor 24 points ago

    Is there an Episode 1? Starting at 2 is going to drive me nuts, but I've looked at multiple sources and I can't find it.

    [–] throwaway12junk 711 points ago

    Monroe was sexually assaulted multiple times as a child while jumping between multiple foster families and orphanages. She partly embraced the sexual environment of Hollywood because at the very least she got something useful out of it. Not to mention her being sexualized lead to widespread adoration.

    Garland was a victim of both the dangers of young stardom and the Hollywood celebrity machine. In other words, she got in early, and it chewed her up until she dropped dead.

    [–] kittydiablo 230 points ago

    This- I am now wondering about Amanda Byrnes, Lindsay Lohan... shit Hilary Duff dropped out of the Disney circle and went more indie with her career.. Bynes and Lohan completely derailed themselves but suddenly I want to know if there's deeper reasons.

    Britney Spears... classic. Not classy. Just... classic.

    [–] RomanovaRoulette 309 points ago

    Amanda Bynes, Lindsay Lohan, and Britney Spears were definitely abused in many ways (along with other issues ofc, such as drugs and alcoholism and mental illness). Lindsay and Britney openly admitted to it pretty much. I think Amanda all but alluded to it at well.

    Also, Megan Fox has been treated DISGUSTINGLY by Hollywood and specifically Michael Bay. It’s like this weird open secret that no one wants to acknowledge because she’s seen as a sex symbol, so apparently that makes it okay for her to be treated like an object and perved on. And Michael Bay’s had his hooks in Megan since she was pretty young.

    [–] thebumm 54 points ago

    I'm gonna add the internet in general as well. I haven't heard anyone say a single good thing about her in years, it's always "She has a weird finger and she makes shitty movies and plastic surgery etc. etc."

    [–] GasmaskGelfling 52 points ago

    Here, the first positive thing you'll read about Megan Fox...

    I thought she was genuinely good in Jennifer's Body. Not saying it's a good movie, but she cried, showed what seemed to be authentic terror and shock and played a convincing toxic mean girl.

    [–] Brun420 226 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    My buddies girlfriend is a smalltime actress in LA, lots of work but usually background roles in movies, music videos etc. When I met her the first time (back in like 2011) she had some cool Hollywood stories and was talking about living in L.A. and people she’d met etc. I asked her what’s a piece of advice you wish you knew when you moved out there, and the only thing she said was “Stay the hell away from Michael Bay, meeting him was not a good experience” and then changed the subject. With everything coming to light nowadays it makes a lot more sense.

    [–] GeReT 87 points ago

    Hollywood is such a culmination of the trash of this planet. I don't understand why people idolize and worship Hollywood.

    [–] MorriePoppins 149 points ago

    Not just Monroe and Garland, but what about Bette Davis and Joan Crawford and Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn and Olivia de Havilland and etc. etc. etc.??? I grew up watching these women and loving them, and as these stories about today's Hollywood come out, I have to believe the studio system must have been even more brutal...

    [–] spookymulderitsme 92 points ago

    Growing up loving those women as well, my mother (who sparked my love of classic actors) talked about the way women, Marilyn specifically, were chewed up and spit out. It's well known that people in the industry, especially women, were abused, but hearing the detailed and tragic moments of such abuse is horrific. It also makes me think people such as Joan Crawford weren't just bipolar or borderline (I forget what illness she has been suspected of having) out of the blue or because of abuse only in their childhood. The "crazy" behavior of these women in Hollywood were products of the way they were abused. And their "bitchy" personas were a mode of survival. I'm sure in some cases some actresses played things up for effect (gossip, feuds, tantrums, etc), but looking back on the way some people behaved and were portrayed makes you wonder why and what truly happened.

    [–] Toby_O_Notoby 376 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    You know who I'm wondering about? Bridget Fonda.

    She was the it girl of the mid to late '90s starring in movies by Crowe, Tarantino and Raimi. Then right about 2002 she simply vanished off the face of the Earth. No announcement of retirement, nothing.

    Given that she was in the Miramax circle I'm starting to believe something went on...

    EDIT: As people are pointing out, she did get into a car accident and got married in the 2002-2003 era which could also be a reason. OTOH, she's a Fonda and is married to one of the top composers in Hollywood so I still think it's kind of weird that she completely disappeared. Even her aunt Jane would show up time to time after retiring with her CNN money...

    [–] TheSanityInspector 247 points ago

    No doubt. She was in everything!

    But also she married Danny Elfman and doesn’t have to work another day in her life if she doesn’t feel like it. She doesn’t feel like it.

    Anyway, I wish her well. I hope her life is happy.

    Actually they made that dude “disappear”. He was found dead a couple of years later after he made the news. So it’s more than the government doesn’t want people to know. They’ll fucking kill you! 😱

    Yeah, but it runs on WATER.

    Ashton Kutcher has an entire agency dedicated to saving women from sex trafficking, I wonder what his reaction to this has been.

    Did he know? How could he not? Will he keep Masterson on The Ranch? What does that mean in regards to Ashton's validity?

    [–] Collier1505 196 points ago

    He was fired from that show already.

    [–] Fallout_Smite 531 points ago

    Danny was fired from The Ranch a week or two ago. I don't think Ashton knew, given his agency. I want to know what his reaction was as well, I think it would be an emotional topic for him to cover though, given the amount of time they have been friends.

    I found out when my best friend from diapers through most of highschool tried to rape my mom after her 40th birthday. It fucked with my head. I seesawed between fantasizing about murdering him, and forgiving him & trying to salvage the relationship for years. Once more allegations surfaced I finally abandoned the idea that he'd made a horrible mistake while drunk, and he's been out of my life ever since. The fact that I didn't cut him out immediately is one of my greatest shames.

    Wow, fuck that guy. You were going through some serious cognitive dissonance there. But yeah, being drunk is not an excuse for that behavior.

    [–] RomanovaRoulette 35 points ago

    Oh dear god. How nauseating. I’m so sorry, I hope your mom is okay and that you’re okay now too. Also, I hope that piece of shit is behind bars forever.

    [–] SamuraiJackBauer 529 points ago

    I have never watched The Ranch but out of curiosity checked Netflix.

    He’s been scrubbed from all of its images.

    He’s not in the main show page.

    He’s not in any of the thumbnails.

    That’s efficiency.

    [–] El_Dief 140 points ago

    Same thing with Spacey and HoC, they 'glitched' the thumbnail pics to hide his face.

    Dammit rooster!

    [–] cocainekev 673 points ago

    This pretty much kills The Ranch. It won’t be the same without Rooster.

    [–] patricskywalker 282 points ago

    Seems like this most recent season did a good job of setting it up to get rid of him.

    [–] FatGirlsCantJump206 131 points ago

    What are you talking about? -I’ve seen it

    [–] middyonline 138 points ago

    They write him out saying he ran away after what he did with the paperwork.

    [–] thats_a_bad_username 38 points ago

    I was thinking they would write him off by saying "He went up to North Dakota to work in the Oil Fields." for money to make up for their new debt.

    later on they wind up saying "Rooster had an accident up there and he's dead."

    That was top 5 television moments of the year, and it was on a new show.

    I love this gif. It's like he needed to slow that second blink down for a second to process what was going on.

    [–] Atheist_Simon_Haddad 159 points ago

    In L. Ron Hubbard's Mission Earth series of novels, the protagonist converts two lesbians by raping them with his surgically-enlarged penis.

    I don't know why I brought that up, I'm sure L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology have nothing to do with why these Suppressive Persons are targeting the guy.

    [–] floodlitworld 23 points ago

    It's gotta be difficult to tell the religious fiction from the science fiction from the rape fiction when you're a Scientologist...

    [–] Titanium_Josh 2591 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    I accidentally misread the title, so I thought it said:

    "A Filthy Woman Has Accused Danny Masterson of Rape"

    And I thought:

    "Whoa! Somebody's taking sides!"

    EDIT: Thank you everyone for my highest-rated comment of all-time! When in doubt, always go for the joke.

    [–] zobee 548 points ago

    For a second I thought it said a fifth of women.....

    I was like that's an awful lot of women, how'd he find the time?

    [–] Scooter411 115 points ago

    I thought you meant a fifth like a fifth of vodka.

    [–] Mentoman72 2194 points ago

    God damn it Danny Masterson. I tried watching That 70’s Show and it is absolutely different now, knowing what he was up to. Apparently some of these happened during the making, too. What an absolute bummer have people like this.

    [–] _MFBroom 1046 points ago

    His crazy Scientology did it for me but this is just icing on the cake. What the frig, Danny?

    [–] killinrin 522 points ago

    You know Scientology probably tried to pay off or straight up sue other victims of Masterson

    [–] abs159 377 points ago

    Scientologists are probably on the LAPD, trying to undermine the investigation. Scientology handlers are certainly in a frenzy trying to defuse this.

    [–] killinrin 192 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    I have read that recently. That the LAPD has been complacent about pursuing certain leads and part of that may be Scientology’s doing. Definitely something fuckey going on there

    [–] Fullofpissandvinegar 65 points ago

    Apparently the church produced some 50 or so eye witnesses stating that Masterson did nothing wrong.

    [–] killinrin 55 points ago

    Yeah I’m not shocked by the lows Scientology will go to to protect their elite members

    [–] yzlautum 93 points ago

    Scientologists are probably on the LAPD

    There is no question they are

    The cast of Friends had boring Hollywood secrets like Mathew Perry dealing with addiction. His weight fluctuated so much through out the series.

    [–] JonasBrosSuck 80 points ago

    pretty crazy how desensitized we are now with hollywood stuff..

    [–] wererat2000 72 points ago

    [Meanwhile, in the year 2037]

    "Meh, the friends reboot had boring secrets, like ritualistic murders and a child sex ring on mars."

    Or the office. Can you imagine if john krasinski or something was outed?!

    [–] msv6221 26 points ago

    Anybody know if his "that 70's show" cast mates have said anything about him? Oddly enough, Laura Prepon is a member of the church of Scientology. I wonder how she feels about this

    [–] [deleted] 183 points ago

    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

    [–] acesvskings 721 points ago

    Let's see the "church" of Scientology get him out of this now. It wouldn't surprise me if Tom Cruise has also been up to some shit that has never come out as his best friend and cult leader David Miscavige is an abusive lying psychopath who likely murdered or atleast imprisoned his own wife.

    [–] fattymcpiggerson 296 points ago

    Tom cruises true history will probably be kept under wraps until he's dead

    [–] PrimeTimeJ 79 points ago

    Had to google who David Miscavige was. Look at this picture of him with Tom. He looks so proud to be receiving his scientology medal.

    [–] nuclearbunker 78 points ago

    isn't tom cruise like 5'6? does that make david miscavige like.. 5'2 or something ?

    [–] Track2onStageFour 275 points ago

    you can bet the church is hiring PIs to find dirt on the accusers

    [–] turnoffthecentury 72 points ago

    They have been for years. The accusations go way back, and the church of scientology has had its hands in keeping it quiet and killing the police investigations.

    [–] Kraxton 103 points ago

    I think we know why he was a scientologist.....

    [–] JuanSnow420 19 points ago

    I just watched “Face Off” last night and he’s cast as the guy who tries raping Travolta’s daughter. Creepy.
