Corey Feldman is finally getting the support from Hollywood that he needs as he continues his fight against Hollywood’s darkest secret: pedophilia. Feldman has alleged that he and friend Corey Haim were victims of child sexual abuse at the hands of powerful Hollywood people for decades, but now in the light of the allegations against Harvey Weinstein and the onslaught of exposes that have ensued, it seems people are finally listening. One thing that should be said is that Corey Feldman’s story of abuse has never changed, the details have never been altered, and it’s time those who witnessed the events that transpired during the ’80s and height of Feldman’s and Corey Haim’s careers step forward and show their support.
After a contentious interview where Corey Feldman appeared on NBC’s Today shows with Matt Lauer and Megyn Kelly, public support for Corey Feldman has surged.
Feldman has launched his Truth Campaign in an attempt to raise $10 million for the cost of self-producing, directing, and distributing a movie based on his personal experience at the hands of Hollywood’s pedophiles. Feldman isn’t the first victim to use art to express their trauma.
Asia Argento, who has alleged Harvey Weinstein raped her, also made a movie where she depicted the violence she suffered on screen.
George Takei publicly showed his support for Corey Feldman in a tweet.

Corey Feldman has long stated that he and Corey Haim participated in teen-disco themed parties called “Soda Pop Clubs.”
The clubs attracted Hollywood teens but also many predators and pedophiles. Allegedly, it was through these clubs that the connections were made that led to both Corey Haim’s and Corey Feldman’s abuse.
One celebrity, Alison Arngrim (who played Nellie Olsen on Little House on the Prairie) has publicly stated and confirmed that people were aware of the abuse the two Coreys endured.
It’s time for those who witnessed the abuse stand up and show their support for Corey Feldman.
Since the Weinstein story broke, a sense of camaraderie has emerged across social media networks. Alyssa Milano, who dated Corey Haim and frequented the soda pop clubs, sparked a social media movement with the hashtag #meetoo.
The hashtag has been used for other victims of sexual abuse to come forward in solidarity and show that Hollywood’s victims aren’t alone.

The hashtag #IStandWithCorey is also trending and is being used to show Feldman that as he makes the brave journey to publicly name his abusers, he too is not alone.
It’s time that those who personally witnessed events or were in the know of Hollywood’s “open pedophile secret” come forward in true support and stand by Corey Feldman as he identifies his abusers.
What do you think? Do you agree with Feldman that it’s time Hollywood’s darkest secret is finally exposed? Is it time those who know the truth about what happened to Corey Feldman and Corey Haim come forward?
