Last week, Chrissie Carnell Bixler—wife of At the Drive-In frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala—came forward and publicly said That ’70s Show actor Danny Masterson raped her. Bixler-Zavala then tweeted in defense of his wife and called out Masterson, the Church of Scientology, Twitter, Netflix, TMZ and the Los Angeles Police Department.
News about Masterson’s troubling past surfaced after Netflix cut ties with Louis C.K. and Kevin Spacey, following reports of their sexual misconduct. At least four women said Masterson is also guilty of abuse and called out Netflix for continuing his new comedy series, The Ranch.
Bixler-Zavala said Netflix—as well as LAPD, TMZ, and Twitter—have all been silenced by the Church of Scientology because Masterson is a member.
“Our phones and computers have been tapped and the Church has been outsourcing private investigators and various thugs to follow and try and intimidate my family under the policy known as fair game,” Bixler-Zavala said. “If anything happens to my wife while I’m gone on tour then you’ll know why.”

All my wife ever wanted was an apology from Danny Masterson for raping her. All she got was a letter from him that would make your skin crawl. Can you imagine how the other 3 victims feel? Allegations my ass we are stuffed to rafters in evidence.— CEDRIC BIXLER ZAVALA (@cedricbixler_) November 16, 2017
My wife pressed charges against Danny Masterson a year ago after learning of the other victims that he and the Church of Scientology had silenced. Twitter, TMZ, LAPD are all bought and paid for.— CEDRIC BIXLER ZAVALA (@cedricbixler_) November 16, 2017
Last year around November I got a cease and desist letter from Marty “the Renfield of Hollywood “ Singer because my tweets were too suggestive. I never named Danny once. Marty use to rep Cosby. Need I say more?— CEDRIC BIXLER ZAVALA (@cedricbixler_) November 16, 2017
I predict Danny Masterson will pull a Polanski and flee.— CEDRIC BIXLER ZAVALA (@cedricbixler_) November 16, 2017
Now the ashes of my dog sit staring at my family in our living room. Coincidence ? I’d love nothing more than to get taken to court so that all parties involved can get deposed. How u doing Marty Singer? How’s that Cosby $ treating u?— CEDRIC BIXLER ZAVALA (@cedricbixler_) November 16, 2017
Bixler-Zavala also hinted that this isn’t the first time he’s talked about Masterson’s crime. He’s also referenced the incident in song lyrics.
U might wanna go back and re read my “nonsensical” lyrics off our last ATDI record.— CEDRIC BIXLER ZAVALA (@cedricbixler_) November 16, 2017
Metal Sucks pointed out that the lyrics of the album track “Incurably Innocent” appear to be about the supposed cover-up:
“He keeps a-hiding your photograph
Of the moment that you needed to emasculate his
Photograph but you locked up in the trance of a memory
Photograph of the moment that you needed to emasculate his
Photograph but you locked up in the trance of a memory
Marching to the coffins on Franklin Avenue
Preyed on the anguish, you better run
Always dragging a finger across his throat
Man is the fixer to sage the ghosts
And the faith that awarded his every move”
Franklin Avenue is the Hollywood location of Scientology’s first Celebrity Centre International.
Supporters have also taken to Twitter to ask Netflix and close friends of the actor to condemn his actions. Fans have even created a petition to ask Netflix to cancel The Ranch.
I hope @netflix will listen to this brave woman. Are you still going to back a coward who hides behind his "church" & his celebrity status? Will you support victims of sexual assault? Chrissie (and the other ladies) are showing you what courage truly is. https://t.co/PoAmJ5UQ34— Mick Roberts (@mickroberts74) November 16, 2017
You're an active Scientologist...an organization that engages in horrific exploitation and trafficking. Also, I've reached out to your publicist three times for a comment on the four women who have accused your close friend and former co-star Danny Masterson of rape. No reply. https://t.co/mU5tOi2olO— Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) November 19, 2017
Almost 35000 ppl have signed this petition requesting @netflix & @theranchnetflix to act now over the 4 allegations of violent rape levelled against @dannymasterson - please considering adding your signature #ScientologyTheAftermath https://t.co/RPUfKszYjC— i-Betty (@Andrea9) November 17, 2017
Chrissie pressed charges against Masteron last year, but the Huffington Post revealed earlier this month the inquiry had “stalled” “despite overwhelming evidence.” When HuffPo reached out to Netflix for a comment regarding the reports against The Ranch star, the streaming giant responded, “We are aware of the allegations and the subsequent investigation, and will respond if developments occur.”
