This show has created an environment of hostility and prejudice that I never thought I would have to experience. You can imagine my outrage when I saw that A&E had picked the show up for a second season.

I am writing you regarding the impact the Leah Remini A&E Scientology show has had on my life.
I am a practicing Scientologist and I enjoy it and find it very helpful for both myself and my friends/associates who practice the religion. I have many friends of course who are not Scientologists and we have always been able to get along and I certainly respect the religious beliefs of others.
My friends, family, and acquaintances are often interested in Scientology information that I’ve shown them to help them with their problems. Now, however, in large part due to the show that A&E has aired, I have had numerous instances of my friends being fearful regarding anything to do with Scientology, and in some cases aggressive towards me, which was never the case before the show.
This show has created an environment of hostility and prejudice that I never thought I would have to experience. You can imagine my outrage when I saw that A&E had picked the show up for a second season. In today’s social and politically charged culture, I felt that I had to contact you before this hostility degenerates into something worse.
I am appealing to you as the head of Disney/ABC TV Groups to do something about the show before any further unnecessary bullying, hatred or worse is created from this irresponsible program.
Thanks for your help.
