While some fans of “That ‘70s Show” actor Danny Masterson may have been shocked by an announcement from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office Wednesday, revealing that the star had been charged with rape in three separate cases, that wasn’t the reaction the news inspired from Leah Remini.
The outspoken former Scientologist wasn’t surprised by the charges, but she was relieved.
After all, in August of 2019, Remini sat down with two women who accused Masterson of sexual assault for the final episode of her A&E docuseries “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath,” and she discussed the alleged efforts of the Church of Scientology to thwart the cases on the star’s behalf.
Finally, victims are being heard when it comes to Scientology! Praise the lord! This is just the beginning Scientology, your days of getting away with it is coming to an end! #justice #scientologytheaftermath https://twitter.com/ap/status/1273372995407482881 …
Masterson, 44, is accused of raping a 23-year-old woman in 2001, and a 28-year-old woman in 2003. And another then-23-year-old woman alleges Masterson raped her after he invited her to his Hollywood Hills home in 2003, according to the Los Angeles prosecutor’s office.
As the women were not named in the district attorney’s release, it’s not known if they include the accusers Remini spoke to last year.
