KHolmesTCruise062210_04_230.jpg News of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise's divorce spread around the world the minute it was announced, and it seems everyone has an opinion on the circumstances surrounding the split! Rupert Murdoch, News Corp.'s chief executive, took to Twitter yesterday morning to slam Cruise and his controversial religion Scientology.

Despite the fact Murdoch's facing an ongoing investigation into his now-defunct New of the World newspaper's alleged phone hacking -- AND despite having stepped down and chief the British Murdoch newspapers -- the billionaire doesn't seem to be letting his troubles get him down!
