OK, let’s back up here for just a moment, in case you missed the context: Allison Mack, who played Chloe Sullivan on Smallville, was also the right-hand man to Keith Raniere, the leader of a sex-cult pyramid scheme. It was a multi-level marketing outfit called NXIVM with an inner secret society called DOS, where Raniere and Allison Mack recruited sex slaves, who then recruited more sex slaves. These sex slaves were required to divulge personal information with which DOS could blackmail them if they ratted them out, and all the women were required to be branded.
All caught up? Cool.
I should note, too, that Rainere preferred “thin women” and kept them on low-calorie diets, which brings us to this series of tweets Allison Mack sent to Emma Watson a couple of years ago:
[email protected] I'm a fellow actress like yourself & involved in an amazing women's movement I think you'd dig. I'd love to chat if you're open.— Allison Mack (@allisonmack) January 24, 2016
[email protected] I participate in a unique human development & women's movement I'd love to tell you about. As a fellow actress I can relate so…— Allison Mack (@allisonmack) February 19, 2016
[email protected] well to your vision and what you want to see in the world. I think we could work together. Let me know if you're willing to chat— Allison Mack (@allisonmack) February 19, 2016
A “unique human development & women’s movement”? That sounds like a pitch that ends with, “You can earn up to $19 an hour by selling these steak knives to friends and family members” or, “Come join our sex cult with a gross old dude who brands us and keeps us on a low-calorie diet.”
Emma Watson never replied to the tweets.
Mack also reached out to Kelly Clarkson.
@kelly_clarkson I heard through the grapevine that you're a fan of Smallville. I'm a fan of yours as well! I'd love to chat sometime.— Allison Mack (@allisonmack) July 20, 2013
Raniere has been arrested and charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor conspiracy. Allison Mack has also been arrested for her role in recruiting sex slaves. She has pleaded not guilty.
Fellow Smallville star Kristin Kreuk also admits being a part of NXIVM for several years, but denies being involved with the secret sex cult.
