Allison Mack, the TV actress who starred in The CW network’s “Smallville”, was bailed out of jail on Tuesday and met with a chaotic scene outside a courthouse where she’s charged with helping recruit women as sex slaves for the leader of a self-improvement group in upstate NY. People on Twitter have also been combing through Mack’s tweets to see who else she was in contact with.
Mack tweeted to Emma Watson on several occasions to talk about “an incredible women’s movement”, without giving much information. “I’d love to chat if you’re open”, Mack, 35, tweeted at Watson, 28, on January 24, 2016. “Let me know if you’re willing to chat”, read the tweet that was broken up into two separate ones addressed to Watson.
Mack again tried to reach out the following month, this time explaining that she too was a humanitarian like Watson. I’ve told you about this before, but the long and short of it is that Rainere’s weird pyramid scheme management training is a front for a weird sex cult that preys on women who post basic-ass inspirational quotes to social media.
“I think it’s a cult”, he said then. She’ll be living with her parents.
She will only be allowed leave the house for pre-approved activities, including traveling to Manhattan to meet with her lawyers or Brooklyn for court appearances. Yet that didn’t faze Mack, who never mentioned the alleged cult NXIVM or its founder, Keith Raniere, by name.
Allison is, of course, most famous for her role as Clark Kent’s best friend Chloe Sullivan in Smallville. Allison is referred to as “CC-1” in the documents, which allege that she was Keith’s first “slave”, and eventually began recruiting other women to join.
In a odd twist, the press have managed to unveil a series of chilling (in the light of this news) messages that Mack sent to none other than fellow actress Emma Watson regarding a “women’s movement”, leaving people to wonder if Mack attempted to recruit the “Harry Potter” star into the cult.
Raniere has also been charged and is awaiting his own arraignment.
Mack entered her plea in federal court in Brooklyn.
Mack pleaded not guilty to the charges.
USA prosecutors allege she played an instrumental role in recruiting women into a makeshift harem for the group’s founder Keith Raniere, and helped to subject adherents to psychological punishment, blackmail, and starvation diets, and even branding.
