Scientology Trolls Hijacked Actress Jenna Elfman's Reddit AMA - 2017-04-12
It's no surprise that Reddit AMAs are most fun when something goes wrong—indeed, actor Woody Harrelson has been a Reddit punchline for five years because of a disastrous AMA in which he refused to answer questions about anything other than the film he was promoting.
The latest Q&A gone awry occurred yesterday, when actress Jenna Elfman of Dharma & Greg fame held an AMA about her new sitcom Imaginary Mary, which premiered last night on ABC. She answered a lot of complimentary questions about how she stays "so ageless and beautiful," and how she recovers from sickness by sleeping and taking Airborne.
But in a Harrelson-like turn of events, many questions in the AMA remained unanswered because they touched on Elfman's sordid history with Scientology. She is on the board of advisers for the Los Angeles exhibition"Psychology: An Industry of Death," which is owned by the controversial church. She also supported the Scientology-backed New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project, which claimed to flush toxins from the bodies of 9/11 rescue workers using exercise, saunas and high doses of vitamins.
