Fans urge Corey Feldman to name all Hollywood pedophiles 'before something else happens to another child'
Actor Corey Feldman, on Tuesday, hinted at the identity of his sexual abusers from when he was a child in the entertainment industry, and social media is now abuzz with speculations, with many commending the actor's courage. Feldman appeared on 'The Wendy Williams Show' to discuss his upcoming documentary titled '(My) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys', and revealed that he is set to use the real names of the people in Hollywood who allegedly sexually assaulted him and his late friend Corey Haim.
"I am saying every name that affected…our lives and we have victims talking about their experiences," Feldman said during the show. "The one main name that everyone is waiting to hear…It is a name that everybody on the planet knows."
The actor's revelation sparked a discussion on social media, with many people reacting in the PopCulture.com's comments section on the outlet's post on Facebook. One person wrote: "I hope when he does have the courage to speak he will find inner peace," wrote one person. "Too many keep things bottled up for various reasons. Fear, humility, etc. Everyone deserves inner peace and no one has the right to take it away from you."
While another said: "I have no doubt that he and many other childhood stars were abused. It is starting to look like he is just trying to make some money. If your going to name the abuser, do it before something else happens to another child."
"Good for him," added a third. "It takes a lot of courage to do this. Maybe if he comes forward it will encourage other victims to step forward."
One Facebook user slammed those casting doubt on Feldman's claims, saying that the actor "tried telling when he was young but no one gave a f– as long as the money kept coming." He added that there are varied reasons "why people wait many many years to speak about sexual abuse," noting that the last time the actor spoke out he "was attacked."
"And the # of u saying its not true or why didn't he tell. Y'all are the reason sexual predators get away with all they do!" they added.
Feldman, on Thursday, said that he is fleeing from his home with his family after someone dropped Wolfpack-related material outside his house on Wednesday morning. The actor, who revealed the news on early Thursday morning on Twitter, is preparing for the March 9 release of his much-anticipated documentary. Feldman had previously stated that he is fearful of his life and his family's safety ahead of the documentary's release as he sets to name famous figures in Hollywood who he claims are sexual predators.
The actor, on Thursday, also tweeted a picture of the responding officer who took his report and revealed that an investigation into the incident had been launched by the police. Feldman also added that he and his family were leaving town until the premiere of his film.
He now has 24/7 armed security and has even asked for extended security to his ex-wives and extended family members. Feldman had long promised an exposé of high-profile celebrities in Hollywood who engage in pedophilia and continue to work in the entertainment industry. He had also claimed that there have been at least two murder attempts made on him.
