Remini’s post received positive responses from the netizens. Many thanked her for helping Masterson’s victims.

“Thanks @LeahRemini for all your endless hard work and courage!!!” one wrote.

“Leah you are an incredible women [sic] for what you have done. You’ve given a voice to many people who thought they did not have it, in many different ways!  Wish you nothing but happiness!” another added.

“Yes...justice finally. You helped bring this about Leah,” a different netizen commented.

Remini was a former member of the Church of Scientology. She left the organization in 2013 and created a docuseries about the controversial organization entitled “Scientology and the Aftermath.”

The two-hour special included the rape allegations against Masterson. It featured two of the women who accused him of rape.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2019, she was asked how she wanted to address the allegations of rape against Masterson.

“We filmed with three [alleged] victims. The [alleged] victims were concerned and felt hurt and betrayed by [the delay in airing], and I understand that. They also feel hurt and betrayed by the [Los Angeles] District Attorney,” Remini said.

“I wanted to open up the whole thing. If it was any other organization but Scientology, the D.A. would at least be investigating. I’ve heard nothing.”

Just recently, the three victims released a statement about the progress of their case. They were very thankful to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office for pressing charges against the “That ‘70s Show” actor.

According to them, they were harassed, embarrassed and revictimized when Masterson and the Church of Scientology learned that they were cooperating with the authorities.
