AT THE DRIVE-IN Frontman Alleges Church of Scientology Poisoned & Killed His Dog

In 2017, At The Drive-In and The Mars Volta frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala spoke up and said his wife, Chrissie Carnell Bixler, was one of many woman actor Danny Masterson (That '70s Show) raped, and claimed the Church of Scientology was covering up the story. At the time, he claimed he was being followed, his phones were tapped and that he was sued by the Church for defamation. He also alleged that his family dog at the time was poisoned by the Church.

“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." He said at the time. Three years later, and Bixler-Zavala is still dealing with the effects, and still publicly calling out members of the church like Beck and Juliette Lewis.

This week, Bixler-Zavala took to social media to reveal his new dog, who wasn't even a year old, was poisoned by some raw meat with rat poison left on their front yard.

“I’m at the vet dealing with another hurt animal. This is what I’ve been finding in my front and backyard. This is what scientology does when you speak about the predators they protect.”

Sadly, the next day, Bixler-Zavala revealed they had to put the dog down because it was too late and the poison had infected the dog's insides.

“We had to put her down today. This was the result of eating rat poison rolled up in raw meat. This is the 2nd dog we’ve had to put down due to the harassment from private investigators and Scientologists. This only makes us stronger. My boys named her biscuit. They still don’t understand what’s happening. We said goodbye to her and let her go peacefully.”

Bixler-Zavala also reposted this note, written by his wife, Chrissie.

“She died in my arms today. A team of vets and the ASPCA’s poison department just confirmed she was fed a brick of flavored rat poison. She was supposed to turn a year old this week. They fed her the most lethal kind. The one where she bleeds out internally. Her lungs were filled with blood. Blood was dripping from her nose and mouth. I’m destroyed.

“The ASPCA opened a case file on it. They re sending me the medical file to then go file a police report here. My kids could have died or gotten extreely ill. They’re always out finding treasures. Always putting their hands in therir mouths.”

Bixler-Zavala said this isn't going to stop him from talking and wrote a much longer post, calling out some other folks with vague references. MetalSucks transcribed the note with some edits for clarity:

“I will not shut my mouth about this shit. Clearly you repugnant pieces of shit don’t want my wife and I to tell our story. We most certainly have some interesting receipts that can tie a whole fuck load of xenu sympathizers and xenu soliers to these rapes. Never trust a Scientologist who tries to co-opt the me too movement. Never trust an artist who is still friendly with their Scientologist celebrity pals. You know who I’m talking about. Go ahead and scroll past this and turn your blind eye. This whole bullshit idea of tolerance is a very convenient way of you hiding your head in a hole while you ‘separate’ the artist from their ‘spiritual’ beliefs.

“You go ahead and take gigs with these people. You would be an utter fool to think that the money you help make on tour with these sheep doesn’t go back to celebrity center. If Beck can leave what the fuck is your chicken shit excuse? You gotta wonder what kind of dirt they got on you from your auditing sessions or your time on the purification rundown. ‘They’ pass your folders around and own you. You would be surprised who is in whose pocket.

“So here’s a special shout out to all the Powerful Cats, all the midnight vultures, all the friends of Earl, all the Berric troops, all you owners of hip red bag coffee, all you Stoned owners of Harvard, all you House Geisha dwellers, all you managerial pieces of shit repping strokes of luck, all of you Oscar stylists, all you deadly little Sarahs, all you post apocalyptic soldiers fighting zombies in Atlanta, all you black cube thugs, all you newly indoctrinated ‘people of the sun,’ all you poser hags wearing Native American regalia for purposes of rock stardom. I see you. I see what side of HERstory you are on.

“And finally, to our beloved horse fucker Bijoux. Swab your mouth all you want, you ain’t African American. How’s that new kidney treating you? Probably best to stop drinking. Not everybody can afford something so ephemeral as a fucking kidney. I loved you in the movie Bully. So method.”

So there is a lot to take in here.

It's a beyond shitty move to poison an innocent dog. So whoever did that, karma will come for you.
