Former 'poster boy for Scientology,' Jason Beghe, OTV, Class V auditor, and seasoned character actor speaks out in a two hour interview about his experience as a celebrity in the CoS
A week ago Mark Bunker
, affectionately known as Wise Beard Man to the Anonymous
movement, posted a teaser video
on YouTube to an interview he conducted with character actor Jason Beghe (Monkey Shines, Thelma & Louise, numerous TV appearances) about his experience . Though he's not a household name, the move was seen as a major win by critics, since so far Jason is the highest-profile ex-scienotologist to come forward as a critic of the organization.
The teaser video was seen nearly 600,000 times before the video was abruptly taken down and Bunker's account was supsended by YouTube
. YouTube claims Bunker's account was suspended due to two months-old DMCA complaints from Viacom regarding short Colbert Show clips that Bunker had posted on YouTube, and not due to any request by the Church of Scientology (tm).
Others, who have noticed Scientology's big adsense push on YouTube lately
, are a bit skeptical of that claim.
