Leah Remini celebrated a big moment in her life over the weekend: the anniversary of her departure from Scientology.
The "King of Queens" actress posted a Twitter video on Sunday to thank fans for supporting her.
"It has been nine years since I left Scientology," she said. "I just want to say that you guys have been an amazing support system for me and people like me."
Since leaving the controversial religion, the top brass of Scientology have essentially labeled Leah public enemy No. 1 due to her ongoing public criticism. Over the past nine years, Leah has ripped the relation via a book, podcast and Emmy-winning TV series "Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath." She has publicly declared that "taking down" the church is her "passion."
"There are moments it hasn't been easy. It's hard to leave something you've only known your whole life," she said in the new video, lamenting all the lifelong friendships lost. "It's still heartbreaking to think that families are being destroyed, lives are being destroyed, and that's why we will continued to fight."
Although Leah still deals with the occasional social media bully, she claimed "the only negativity that usually comes on my social media is from Scientology."
In captioning her video, the actress wrote, "Nine years ago this week, the news came out that I left Scientology. It hasn't always been easy to adjust after 35 years of brainwashing in a cult, but I'm getting there. I just wanted to thank you all for your support.I'm going to keep fighting to expose the truth."
