On July 27, anti-Scientologist Leah Remini admitted in a tweet that “Yashar was never a Scientologist,” confirming that the disgraced, jobless former writer knows nothing about the religion he spends his days obsessively attacking on social media.
Notorious for his psychotic online rants and deadbeat lifestyle, Yashar Ali was just this month ordered by a court to forfeit all future income to cover the $232,769 he “borrowed” from Ariadne Getty and never paid back. As one Twitter user put it: “Low-character scum. Ali is a bad guy and ought to hide in shame.”
“He’s a deranged lying grifting psychopath.”
Ali, who describes himself as “obsessed with Scientology,” spends his days on Twitter stalking and harassing Scientologists, making comments such as “I am committed to the destruction of Scientology no matter what.”
Though committed to the “destruction” of a peaceful religion, Ali has made clear he has no commitment whatsoever to fulfilling his financial obligations. The debt collector pursuing Ali’s unpaid loan with Getty told the LA Times that Ali was “more difficult than average” to track down. According to court papers, he has no “known local bank accounts” or property. As Twitter users put it: “He’s a deranged lying grifting psychopath,” and “a deeply twisted, evil fraud who manipulates and abuses people until they’re of no further use to him.”
Many have suggested Ali is sleeping at fellow anti-Scientologist Leah Remini’s house and managing her social media accounts. In Ali’s words: “To put things in perspective, those of us who publicly battle Scientology make up such a small group that we all know each other.”
Ali has lost tens of thousands of followers on Twitter since being exposed in a Los Angeles Magazine profile as a toxic, exploitive personality who took advantage of women whose trust he gained.
