Remini’s hate campaign, misrepresented as a “public service” in your puff piece, has caused actual harm to individuals and families, as demonstrated in these specific instances I know of personally.

I read your piece on Leah Remini’s Emmy nomination and recognized the necessity to give you a more truthful view than your published narrow and one-sided version.
Remini and her 8-part A&E series that you fawn over have spawned some 500 death threats, bomb threats, acts of violence, and destruction of property. Schoolchildren have been bullied and families tormented and fractured. Many of these crimes have been investigated by police and some of the perpetrators have gone to prison. That is Leah Remini’s gift. And you laud this nomination?
Remini’s hate campaign, misrepresented as a “public service” in your puff piece, has caused actual harm to individuals and families, as demonstrated in these specific instances I know of personally. There are many, many more.
There are many, many more documented stories like this, with the lives of good people disrupted. So when you say “Leah Remini humbly deflected the initial attention,” it is sickening.
Please take a step back from what you wrote and what Remini says and does. It’s simple: She launched a hate campaign against her former Church and its members, some of whom were her friends. There is no altruism in her actions. It’s all about money and keeping her face and name in public. In return, we have done nothing other than reveal the consequences of her actions and the harm she causes the lives of real people.
Electing yourself an apologist for Leah Remini places you squarely in the position of publicly supporting the threats and violence to innocent people that her program has incited. I strongly urge you to reconsider your position.
