Bigots-R-Us at The Hollywood Reporter

Instead of congratulating her and acknowledging her enthusiastic acceptance speech, he criticized her religion, and found a couple of anti-Scientologists, using their twisted “analysis” of why she said what she said.

Dear Mr. Belloni,

Once again, Seth Abramovitch chose to be totally disrespectful and biased in his reporting of Elisabeth Moss’s amazing talents and winning two of television’s most prestigious Emmy awards.

Instead of congratulating her and acknowledging her enthusiastic acceptance speech, he criticized her religion and found a couple of anti-Scientologists, using their twisted “analysis” of why she said what she said.

I find this anti-religious bigotry in your magazine very disturbing.

Approving and allowing such reporting of Abramovitch is your responsibility.

Researching Abramovitch’s track record, I discovered he was fired for using the “N” word in his Kayne West story. (See “Gawker Blogger Fired for Using “N-word” in Kanye West Story,” January 6, 2012.)

I remember writing you back in 2013 about the god-awful, untrue article you did on my great uncle, Jack Warner, called “Hollywood’s Pact with Hitler.” Shameful!

Ms. Moss was rightfully happy about her wins, and said so. Bravo to her! What in the world does this have to do with her religion?

I think it would be wise for you to decide to stick to reporting accurate entertainment news and stop seeking to harm others!

Most sincerely,
Cass Warner
