Corey Feldman is making headline news as he has vowed to expose an elite Hollywood pedophile ring, and he’s getting both supporters and detractors. An outspoken critic of Hollywood’s handling of child actors, he states that at the height of his career in the 1980s, he along with other child actors including Corey Haim were passed around parties where they were sexually molested, abused, and even raped.
Now with a new fundraising campaign that he hopes will help secure the legal team needed to out the pedophile ring, he’s being slammed by some who say no ring exists. He also states that he told police about Hollywood’s pedophiles as far back as 1993, but nothing happened as they were only focused on the allegations against Michael Jackson.
Corey Feldman was one of Michael Jackson’s young friends, and though there were great suspicions that Michael may have acted inappropriately, Corey Feldman has stated numerous times that Michael never molested him.
Now that Corey Feldman has organized a campaign to raise $10 million to make a movie that will depict the abuse he and other child actors endured, he is getting some backlash. Many people think he should just come out and name the pedophiles without needing to raise money or make a movie to do so.
While many people have mixed views on Feldman’s IndieGoGo Truth Campaign and fundraiser, it should be remembered that he has already gone to the police and given names.

Those accusing Feldman of not doing enough might want to step in his shoes before deciding how he should handle reporting something to the police they have already swept under the rug.
Just as with the Harvey Weinstein scandal very little was done legally, Feldman has repeatedly stated for years that police did not act on what he revealed.
Is it victim blaming to attack Corey Feldman because the police did not follow through with the information he reportedly gave them 24 years ago?
EVERYBODY WANTS NAMES, WE ALL WANT ANSWERS, NONE OF THIS CAN HAPPEN IF IM NOT PROTECTED, PLEASE SUPPORT: https://t.co/wU3kV0uddi

Corey Feldman has repeatedly stated he fears for his life and safety from the alleged Hollywood pedophile ring that he believes would rather see him dead than name names.
Maybe Corey Feldman will change his mind and with the onslaught of Harvey Weinstein victims coming forward and making their voices heard, find the courage to do the same thing.
Unlike Weinstein’s victims, other child actors are not stepping out of the shadows to join Corey Feldman and speaking out.
That might be attributed to the fact that Weinstein’s victims were mostly adults where an alleged Hollywood pedophile ring targets younger victims. What do you think?
Do you think Corey Feldman should speak out despite the fact he already told police the names of the abusers? Should he just say the names on social media?
