John Dixon, a councillor in Wales, is facing a disciplinary hearing after $cientology bitched about a tweet Dixon made. The tweat read:
“I didn’t know the Scientologists had a church on Tottenham Court Road. Just hurried past in case the stupid rubs off.”
Then after Dixon learned $cientology began monitoring his Twitter account, he tweeted:
“Just realised the Scientologists are following me. Quick everyone, pretend you’re out.”
So now the cult is trying to get him fired.
Anything that upsets scientology and therefore Tom Cruise is a good thing. #stupidscientology
It seems that once again, we’re seeing the Streisand effect, as Twitter users everywhere are expressing their dislike for $cientology using the hashtag #stupidscientology.
