News Corp chairman Rupert Murdoch took a swipe at movie star Tom Cruise on Sunday in a series of tweets that labeled the Hollywood star a No. 2 or No. 3 person in the hierarchy of Scientologists, a group the media mogul called "creepy."

"Scientology back in news. Very weird cult, but big, big money involved with Tom Cruise either number two or three in hierarchy (sic)," Murdoch posted Sunday on his official Twitter feed.

Later in the day, he tweeted: "Watch Katie Holmes and Scientology story develop. Something creepy, maybe even evil, about these people."

Rupert Murdoch is not only one who pissed "cults" in his family. In 2001, James Murdoch, Rupert's son, in an effort to ingratiate himself with the Chinese government and secure carriage for Star TV in the country, James went a bit over the top. He labelled Falun Gong, the spiritual movement relentless persecuted by the Communist regime, a "dangerous" and "apocalyptic cult" that "clearly does not have the success of China at heart." He also chastised the western media for painting a relentlessly negative picture of the Chinese government. According to the Los Angeles Times' account of the speech, Murdoch "startled even China's supporters with his zealous defence of that government's harsh crackdown on Falun Gong and criticism of Hong Kong democracy supporters."
