We've been hearing lots of less-than-wonderful things about Scientology lately, and now we're hearing some less-than-legal things about the religious group.
The Church of Scientology is currently being investigated for human trafficking AND for using free labor, much of which has reportedly been used on Tom Cruise.
Allegations against Cruise include reports that he ordered workers to "customize a building, rebuild motorcycles, spend years fixing boats," and plenty more…for ONLY fifty dollars a week!
The investigation is also exploring human trafficking claims, in which Scientologists are sent to "reeducation" camps if they are unable to live up to their "religious duties."
Here's what Scientologist Bruce Hines had to say about his time in one of these camps, which lasted six years:
"In 1995, when I was put in [a camp], there were twelve of us. At the high point, in 2000, there were about a hundred and twenty of us."
Tom Cruise and the Church of Scientology have both denied everything.
This is SO upsetting! What will we hear about Scientology next???
