Scientologists have been hurling insults at Rupert Murdock, after the newspaper magnate branded the religion an "evil, creepy cult" on his Twitter account.
Following the news of the impending divorce of high-profile Sciencetologist Tom Cruise, Rupert Murdock shared a few of his thoughts on the religion on Twitter.
According to the Telegraph Murdock tweeted “Scientology back in news. Very weird cult, but big, big money involved with Tom Cruise either number two or three in hiearchy [sic],” followed by "Watch Katie Holmes and Scientology story develop. Something creepy, maybe even evil, about these people.”
Mr. Murdock claims that after his posts he received several hundred attacks by cult members, including “you calling somebody else creepy and evil? Pot have you met kettle?”
Murdock is not one to back down though and despite attracting negative comments he tweeted, “Expect they will increase and get worse and maybe threatening. Still stick to my story."
