Actor and singer Corey Feldman stated in a YouTube video published Wednesday that he wants to make a documentary film to name and expose abuse and pedophilia in Hollywood.
Feldman said, “Right off the bat I can name six names one of them who is still very powerful today, and a story that links all the way up to a studio. It connects pedophilia to one of the major studios. I am very afraid to do this, it’s not easy. I’ve been living in fear and living with this my entire life. As most victims have, I’ve been made to feel awkward, misunderstood, and I’ve been degraded at great levels.”
He continued, “Rumors have been told, stories have been made up about me, I’ve been insulted and degraded in ways that are unimaginable to me, all because they fear what I know as the truth. I’m not alone. I know that there’s thousands others that have experienced what I have experienced in the entertainment industry.”
“I also know there’s peers of mine who know what I’m talking about and know all the details but have been afraid to come forward with their own truths,” he added.
Feldman has previously spoken out about the abuse he claims to have gone through in Hollywood as a child actor. He appeared on “The View” in 2013 and purported to be a victim of abuse as a child.
After numerous allegations have exposed film mogul Harvey Weinstein as a sex abuser, Feldman’s claims have come back into the spotlight.
Feldman says that it will take $10 million in total for him to name names and make a film about abuse in Hollywood. He also claims to need that much money to hire security and legal teams to protect himself, and has opened up a GoFundMe to self-fund this project.
The actor was also arrested last week for marijuana possession because a member of his crew had medical marijuana without having it in the legal bottles. He publicly said that the timing of the arrest was “ironic.”
