Following Leah Remini’s 20/20 interview about leaving Scientology, her husband is speaking out in support of her.
Angelo Pagan took to Twitter to respond to some fan comments about the ABC special, which aired Friday night.
"Free at last free at last thank god almighty..." Pagan tweeted.
Remini's husband even shared a post on Instagram, saying how proud he was of his wife of 12 years, with whom he shares an 11-year-old daughter, Sophia. "Brave, bold, and beautiful," he captioned the throwback photo, posted Friday. "I got your back baby!! #troublemaker."
In her interview, Remini explained some of the inner-workings of Scientology and her experience in the church, which prompted more people than just Pagan to post messages on social media.
Kirstie Alley, a very vocal Scientologist, retweeted a cryptic message that was originally posted by fellow church member, Jenna Elfman.
“What is important to me? I give a damn about making the world a better place,” Elfman's post read. “I care about seeing others smile with genuine happiness. I think the world needs more of that. I’m not interested in sensationalism. I’m interested in seeing other people do well. And spreading kindness, warmth and sincerity. I never forget to appreciate the absurd. And I find it uplifting to admire what’s right in others. I also find it pleasurable to be totally ridiculous. xo Jenna.”
The message appears to be a dig at the former King of Queens star, though there has been no confirmation as of yet. Alley has, however, spoken publicly about Remini after the 45-year-old actress left the Church of Scientology in July 2013.
"I have blocked her on Twitter," the former Kirstie
star said on The Howard Stern Show
two years ago. "She’s a bigot. ... It's not selective. I just won't have people in my life that are that. ... If somebody's sitting there badmouthing your religion and saying that it's hideous and evil, that's not going to be your friend."
Alley isn’t the only celebrity to responded to Remini’s 20/20
interview. Katie Holmes issued a statement
after Remini shared an incident from her time in the church, claiming she was written up after telling Holmes and ex-husband Tom Cruise to "get a freaking room."
"I regret having upset Leah in the past and wish her only the best in the future," a rep for Holmes said in a statement to ABC News.
