The lawer for Tom Cruise, Bert Fields snapped back at Dr. Drew, stating that he was a “flake” and that he “pretends to diagnose people he’s never met.”

He also stated that Dr. Drew “suggests all Scientologists are mentally ill.”

He told People magazine that the thoughts of Dr. Drew were out of line.

    Why is Tom Cruise the most thin-skinnned megalomaniac in Hollywood? Enough, Tom! Grow a REAL set of balls and thicken up a bit. Ever thought of using humor to deflect what you think are undesirable comments?! STOP WHINING TOM CRUISE-MISSLE-HEAD! and grow up!

    While giving a speech in South Africa during Apartheid, L. Ron told a room full of upper-class white men that the next great nation would rise from South Africa, and the things they did there, and he, and his “church”, would do whatever they could to help them. Recently in a press release regarding the opening of a patented Scientology brand brain-washing super-center in that country, he was even quoted by current Scientology leaders as saying such. Who’s the nazi now?

    Yeah, a midget who plays make-believe in front a camera for a living, his army of litigious lawyers, and the “religion” founded by a schizophrenic, racist, science fiction writer who once told his followers that those who could not be cleansed of the alien spirits that cling to the human body by other means should be subjected to “Auditing Process R2-45” which entails them being shot with a .45 caliber pistol to release their “body thetan” are clearly owed an apology when a licensed, trained, and highly respected psychologist suggests that one of them is suffering from a mental illness.

    Give me a break!

    Shame on Drew for backing down, shame on the world for allowing Scientology to continue, shame on the law for allowing such lawsuits to be possible, shame on sympathizers and people who think “each to their own” or “they’re not hurting anyone”, and shame on any news source that doesn’t expose this dangerous and insane cult for what it is.
