Leah Remini Calls For Federal Investigation Of Scientology With 'Aftermath' Season 2

The first series of the documentary aired back in November 2016 in a nine-episode run, and earned Remini two Emmy nominations that were announced last month. Both are nominated for 2017 Emmy Awards, albeit in different categories - Remini for her critically acclaimed A&E docu-series Scientology and the Aftermath and Moss' for her portayal of Offred in Hulu's gut-wrenching The Handmaid's Tale adaptation.

" "[Victims] gets punished for 'pulling it in, ' which is a Scientology term that means you did something that you're not telling the church about - and that's why you received the abuse.

As previously reported, the Church of Scientology has vehemently condemned the series."Leah Remini is doing this show for the money, just as she profited from her book".

She also said that if a child was molested, he or she would not be allowed to go to the police because it was "against policy".

"I'm talking about the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the police, the Department of Justice, the IRS", she said.

According to Leah Remini, Elisabeth Moss can no longer communicate with her.

Unsurprisingly, the church isn't a fan of Remini's show, which the actress continues to promote on the talk show circuit, The Hollywood Reporter suggested this could prove problematic at the Emmys ceremony. She has no other issues with Moss, who was also a TCA victor like her, except with why the actress continues to support Scientology. There are no victims in Scientology.

REUTERS/Fred ProuserLeah Remini hopes a federal government agency will look into the records of the Church of Scientology.

Over the weekend, Leah won Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming at the 33rd Annual Television Critics Association Awards.

Their statement goes on, "this shows the extent Leah Remini is willing to go to distort the truth about Scientology". It means so much to those who were and are courageous enough to speak out against Scientology. "Hope she still heard what Leah said".

It sounds like Season 2 of Aftermath will feature even darker, more horrifying stories from former Scientologists: Remini says that they'll be focusing on the above-mentioned "abusive practices of Scientology - sexual abuse and physical abuse". "I thank you for proving those theories wrong".

The clash between the actresses escalated Wednesday when the Hollywood Reporter published a profile of Remini, in which she talks being a member of the Church for 34 years before leaving after raising questions about its practices.
