The man’s career takes a new turn. Has he not realized that all he does is provide more fodder for them.
“LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) — Actor Tom Cruise threatened to boycott promotion of his upcoming Paramount Pictures film unless a sister cable TV network pulled a “South Park” rerun lampooning the Church of Scientology, industry sources said on Friday.
Representatives for Paramount and Cruise, a prominent Scientologist, denied he made any such threats or had anything to do with the Comedy Central network canceling plans to air a repeat of the “South Park” episode titled “Trapped in the Closet,” on Wednesday.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of the crudely animated cartoon hit, issued a quirky statement, filled with references to Scientology and the science-fiction writings of church founder L. Ron Hubbard, suggesting Scientology was behind the scheduling change.
“So, Scientology, you have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for Earth has just begun,” the pair wrote.
“Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!”
