Jerry Seinfeld has been linked to Scientology since the 1990s, when fellow comedian Bobcat Goldthwait told The Spokesman Review that he didn’t understand the popularity of “Seinfeld,” particularly because the show’s star was “a creepy Scientologist guy.”

Seinfeld hasn’t been able to live the allegations down ever since. In fact, Seinfeld was asked about his affiliation with the organization during an appearance on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast as recently as 2020 — 25 years after Goldthwait made his remarks.

As for why Goldthwait made the comment in the first place, Seinfeld has been very forthcoming about their mutual dislike for one another. In his Netflix series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Seinfeld vented that he believed Goldthwait never liked him, or any other famous comedian, for that matter, because he wasn’t as successful as them. As a result, Seinfeld is of the mind that Goldthwait sought to do whatever it took to discredit his rivals — and labeling him a Scientologist was his first port of call.
