Corey Feldman went underground as he faced 'multiple attacks' from people trying to silence him post airing film
Actor Corey Feldman, days after the release of his controversial documentary, made an appearance on Twitter after seemingly disappearing from the public eye. Feldman, on Wednesday, March 25, wrote on Twitter explaining where he has been after his film '(My) Truth: The Rape of Two Coreys' released on March 9.
Although the actor did not go into the details about his decision to go "underground," he claimed that he has been fending off attacks from some of the people he has accused of sexual assault in the film. Feldman, however, did not specifically mention who he was talking about.
"IM SORRY I HAV DISAAPEARED [sic] [lately]! I NEEDED 2 GO UNDERGROUND, AFTER THE RELEASE OF THE FILM, COUPLED W MULTIPLE ATTACKS FROM THE [people] WHO HAV [sic] BEEN TRYING 2 SILENCE ME," he wrote in all caps.
The actor added that he was doing okay, and would be back soon on social media with an update about his documentary. "I JUST WANTED 2 LET U KNOW IM OK! I LOV [sic] U ALL, I MISS U ALL, & I WILL B BACK SOON W A NEW [update] ABOUT #MYTRUTHDOC," he wrote.
Feldman, a former child star known for his roles in films like 'The Goonies', had long promised an exposé of high-profile celebrities in Hollywood who engage in pedophilia and continue to work in the entertainment industry. He also claimed that there have been at least two murder attempts made on him in bid to silence him. The actor, in a statement in January, had said that he was keeping a promise — through the film — to his best friend, late Canadian actor Haim, to reveal to the world about what really happened to the two as they were sexually and emotionally abused when they were young actors in Hollywood.
Feldman's documentary alleges that actor Charlie Sheen raped Haim in 1986 while the pair were working on the film 'Lucas'. Haim, at the time of the alleged rape, was 13 yearsold while Sheen was 19. Sheen, however, has vehemently denied the accusation.
"These sick, twisted and outlandish allegations never occurred. Period," he told Entertainment Weekly in a statement.
The film also listed other alleged child abusers including Jon Grissom, Alphy Hoffman, Dominick Brascia and Marty Weiss. Feldman had publicly named these men before the #MeToo movement began.
The actor, while speaking to People in 2017, had pointed out the lack of conversation around pedophilia on Hollywood and had encouraged sexual assault survivors in the entertainment industry to come forward with their stories and name their abusers.
"With the #MeToo movement, a lot of people are coming out with their own stories, which is great," he said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "Instead of waiting for the ice to crack, let's be more progressive about it. I'm trying to get everybody to stop keeping it hidden — let's say our truth, let it out and get on with it. Then we can start to actually make changes."
Feldman's documentary, which aired on his website for 24 hours, is no longer available for viewing.
