Late musician and voice-actor Isaac Hayes became a Scientologist in 1995. Controversy came in 2006, when he left his role as the voice of Chef in the cartoon "South Park" after series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone ran an episode satirizing the religion. While Hayes claimed he left because of how he was paid, Stone said he believed it was because the series ridiculed Scientology.
