The King of Queens star's friend and fellow Scientologist Alley was said to be particularly upset about her exit, and demanding leaders address it.

"When faced w malicious gossip I take a moment to experience the loss of the person I thought was my friend… then I say f--- em…" Alley, 63, tweeted.

"The sweetest poison is often served with a smile… beware syrup."

According to Scientology journalist and critic Tony Ortega, Alley's ire was directed towards Leah Remini, 43, who confirmed her exit from the church.

However, Alley denied that her tweets had anything to with Remini.

"I do NOT care what religion ANYONE is or isn't," the star wrote.

"I respect religions & would fight for your freedom as well as mine."

"Don't believe everything you read," she urged.

The church has not commented publicly on the Remini situation, nor has the actress herself, beyond thanking fans for support in a brief, vague statement.
