VIDEO: Danny Masterson accusers face down Scientology ploy at Denim Day rally - 2019-04-25
Yesterday, we told you we were anticipating that Mike Rinder's estranged daughter Taryn Teutsch might repeat her ploy from last year and attempt to co-opt the message of the Denim Day rally in Los Angeles for Scientology's disingenuous smear campaign against her father.
It turned out we were right about that, and Teutsch did get herself into the crowd behind Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti during the rally for photographs.
As we explained yesterday, Taryn's ploy at the Denim Day rally is a sham. In a 2010 incident in Florida, Rinder was ambushed by his ex-wife Cathy Bernardini, Taryn, and several others, and in the confusing scrum that ensued Bernardini's arm was scraped in what police determined was "incidental contact." But Scientology has produced an endless stream of videos, tweets, and websites featuring Bernardini and Teutsch claiming that Rinder is an "abuser." It's quite obvious that the campaign is really about Scientology's unhappiness with Rinder's work as Leah Remini's costar on the A&E series Scientology and the Aftermath, which recently finished its third season.
