Cedric Bixler-Zavala Blames Danny Masterson and Scientology for Killing His Dogs

The Mars Volta/At the Drive-In singer calls out a host of scientologists as “midnight vultures” and “black cube thugs.”

Did you hear the one about the guy from That ’70s Show trying to silence the singer of The Mars Volta/At the Drive-In’s wife over rape accusations?

What sounds like some kind of deranged fan fiction is a full-blown reality right now in Los Angeles, where the aforementioned singer—Cedric Bixler-Zavala—has accused actor Danny Masterson (best known as Hyde on ’70s) of being behind the poisoning deaths of two family pets. The accusation stems from rape allegations made by Bixler-Zavala’s wife, That ’70s Show actress Christina Carnell, against Masterson. He suspects the poisoning was a retaliation.

“I’m at the vet dealing with another hurt animal,” Bixler-Zavala posted on Instagram, along with a photo of rat poison hidden inside chunks of raw meat. “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.”

“We had to put her down today,” he shared on a subsequent post. “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.” 

The singer really opened up in the missive below, calling out Danny Masterson specifically, going on to make some interesting analogies in an extended statement. Bixler-Zavala singles out Masterson’s wife, actress Bijou Phillips, for sharing a video of her mocking his wife’s rape accusation. In yet another post, he linked to a podcast further explaining the situation.

Sometimes, real life is stranger than fiction.
