Leah Remini has become the most vocal former member of the Church of Scientology to speak out against the Church. She’s developed a docu-series and spoken about the forced abductions and child rape; she’s spoken against Tom Cruise; and she said that even before she left the Church, she was being punished for speaking out internally against some of their practices.
Remini has also spoken of the hard repercussions of leaving the Church. Those repercussions apparently include being reduced to starring alongside Charlie Sheen and Finesse Mitchell in a Crackle movie directed by the man behind Joe Dirt 2 and Drunk Parents.
It’s about three families — a Black family, a White family, and a Mexican family — who end up at the same camp, thanks to a booking error. The men in the family enter a series of outlandish camp competitions to determine which family gets to stay. The film includes lines like this one, from Charlie Sheen: “What do you call a Black man in a suit?” A defendant!”
I’m sure that by the end of the movie, the three families bond over their shared human connection, but for the first hour and a half, I’m also sure it’s nothing but horrible racist stereotypes.
Is this what the media meant when they said they’d start reaching out to Trump America?
Leah Remini and that guy from Napoleon Dynamite: You deserve better.
