Man Blocked By Church Of Scientology For Mocking Leader’s Height

Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige is only 5’3″.

And while we generally frown upon teasing a man over his height (besides, nearly all of Hollywood is under 6 feet tall), Miscavige is an exception—and not just because he heads the most nefarious cult in the world. I mean, mostly because of that. But also because his wife, Shelly Miscavige, hasn’t been seen publicly since 2007, and nothing has been done about it.

But I digress. Earlier this week, @jules_zu posted a screenshot of his own tweet poking fun at Miscavige’s lack of height next to a screenshot revealing the official Scientology Twitter account had blocked him over his jeer.

He followed it up with subsequent tweets explaining that he isn’t making fun of short men—just short men who are deeply, intrinsically evil and who are also probably wife-murderers.

“I dont even think they’ve blocked Leah Remini” replied writer Ben Philippe, alluding to the actress who has seemingly dedicated the rest of her life to battling Scientology and demanding answers regarding Shelly Miscavige’s whereabouts.

Even Questlove responded.

Others replied in kind, both with short jokes and Scientology jokes.

And also Tom Cruise jokes.

The Church ended up replying to the tweet, writing that @jules_su had not actually been blocked and referencing his cover photo, which shows a church sign reading “tweet others as you want to be tweeted.”

Whether or not Suzdaltsev had actually been blocked from the get-go is up for debate. One question will forever remain, though: Where in the world is Shelly Miscavige?
