He understands the movie industry. He knows how disastrous it would be, financially, for a film production that expensive to get shut down for weeks or months.

That clip when jumped and broke his ankle and the got up and ran on it to finish the shot was amazing.


Food for him for enforcing protocols

And if you listen to the audio this isn't the first time this came up. He likely did in fact get a phone call for them failing to follow protocol by someone else in the crew.

.... is a nut bag Scientology cultist, and you can bet your bottom dollar the only reason he is doing this is for his own personal safety. I honestly doubt he could give a flying fuck for anyone else's health.

.... even by fellow scientologists as "diabolical". I have done the due diligence concerning Scientology, and I am convinced it is a cult not only of brainwashing, but also steeped in the practice of sexual abuse of children, and forced labor.
Leah Remini's A&E series, "Scientology and the Aftermath" is an eye-opening look into how this cult works. As a former member who was indoctrinated into Scientology as a child, she knows what she is talking about.

I had read and heard negative things about it prior to her series but it certainly crystalized for me what a despicable cult it is. As for Cruise, he is neck deep in it so his outrage about the crew and Covid is all about him and no one else as you stated in your post.

The ex-scientologists that Leah Remini interviews is eye-opening and really brings it home.

her daughter from this cult. Tom Cruise is not in her life and that is probably a good thing. I always feel bad for Nicole Kidman. She lost the kids that she adopted with Tom to this cult. At least she escaped and has a beautiful little family with Keith Urban.

....are not even aware he's a member of the cult, along with the likes of John Travolta, Kirstie Alley, and many others who would surprise a lot of people.

men/gods/whatever have forbidden it and then he would need like super-duper auditing, probably in the back seat of that car Elon Musk has orbiting the planet.

He not only assists and profits in said trafficking, but co-leads the organization that runs it.

Is his the cult that doesn't believe in modern medicine? If so, he shouldn't believe in covid, either!
