Long-time actor and singer Corey Feldman is finally prepared to expose a Hollywood pedophilia ring. “I can name 6 names, one of them who is still very powerful today”, said Feldman, visibly troubled, in a recent YouTube video posted to his channel. The video highlights an Indiegogo campaign to produce a movie detailing the sexual abuse that Feldman endured as a child actor. “I’ll make the film… and… guarantee that it gets a theatrical release… Additionally, it will help me buy the security and the legal team that I need to protect my family”, said Feldman, outlining how the donations will be used. Feldman hopes the film will illuminate Hollywood pedophilia to prompt changes in the industry to better protect child actors.

The video comes after tweets Feldman made on October 19th, in which he claimed he would not name his abusers publicly out of fear for his family’s safety. In a 2016 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Feldman gave other rationale for not naming his abusers; “if [he] were to go and mention anybody’s name [he] would be the one that would be in legal problems and [he’s] the one that would be sued”. If the crowdfunding campaign meets its lofty $10M goal, these barriers preventing Feldman from ousting the pedophile ring publicly would be gone.

In the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, many stars have gained the courage to expose sex abuse in Hollywood, and these outcomings likely encouraged Feldman to tweet. However, Feldman has been outspoken on the topic of pedophilia in Hollywood for years, even stating on an ABC interview in 2011 that “the number one problem in Hollywood was, is, and always will be pedophilia”, and that he “was surrounded by [pedophiles] when [he] was 14 and [he] didn’t even know it”. In his 2013 memoir Coreyography, Feldman wrote that his buddy and fellow former child actor Corey Haim was raped by Hollywood elites. Perhaps most saddening, Feldman mentioned his abuse, and cautioned parents of childhood stars against being naïve regarding the safety of their children while on The View in 2013, annoying Barbara Walters who uncompassionately scolded Feldman. “You’re damaging an entire industry!” said Walters, more concerned with maintaining the talent pool than the safety of children in the industry.

Judy Haim, Corey Haim’s mother, is a notable critic of Feldman’s plan, calling the campaign a distraction from Feldman’s recent marijuana possession arrest. Feldman’s publicist, Samantha Waranch, responded that the campaign aims to appease those asking Feldman to name his abusers, and that Feldman had demonstrated behavioural changes that indicate he believes in his plan.

Feldman would expose a Hollywood pedophile ring if he had the money to ensure the safety of his family, now that people are considering accusations against Hollywood elites more seriously, and there are fewer “Barbara Walters” types who want to ignore them. Feldman said it himself that the rampant pedophilia in Hollywood is “not fair and it must end”, and it’s hard to disagree.
