Nestle: Your Ad Money Pushes A&E Hate TV
Not only am I Scientologist for 46 years, but I am an African-American who grew up in the 50s and 60s. So I know about hatred and bigotry when I see it. And you are front and center in forcing people to believe lies that will damage lives, hurt families and cause threats and violence.

I am dismayed that as an advertiser you have chosen to position your products with hatred, discrimination, prejudice, lies and, in particular, the violations of religious freedom that this country was founded upon.
You are currently funding a show with Leah Remini, an outcast who refused to live by the morals and codes of a religion with values the same as many other religions: do not lie, cheat, steal, covet another’s spouse, kill, etc. Her distorted view is twisted, full of lies and false claims. By supporting her show, you are airing lies and furthering hatred that has divided this country for hundreds of years. Haven’t we seen enough prejudice and bigotry that has harmed and killed countless Americans (black and white)—Jews, Germans, British, French, Muslims—without your support in throwing those very dangerous positions again in our faces regularly on national TV?
We Scientologists, share what other religions such as Judaism, Catholicism, Islam, Buddhism and Christianity have endured: being misunderstood, misquoted, misrepresented and lied about by their outcasts. If one doesn’t care to understand or portray a religion correctly, talk to those who are no longer in it so your ignorance remains “bliss’. To really know a religion (or anything), it is always best to talk to those who have benefited from it. The network you support is doing the exact opposite.
Not only am I a Scientologist for 46 years, but I am an African-American who grew up in the 50s and 60s. So I know about hatred and bigotry when I see it. You are front and center in forcing others to believe lies that damage people, hurt families and cause threats and violence to innocent individuals.
I respectfully request you withdraw your support of this show. If you continue to support it, you will be doing even greater harm. I would then have to cancel any business I have with you and your affiliates, and encourage my family and friends, and their family and friends, to do the same in the name of anti-hatred, anti-bigotry and freedom of religion.
