Corey Feldman is in the midst of fundraising for his Truth Campaign. Launched on October 24, 2017, the Truth Campaign is creating awareness of the personal, sexual abuse he endured while a teen in Hollywood. He has gained numerous supporters, raised approximately $260,000 and has vowed that he won’t stop until he ultimately makes his movie based on his best-selling memoir Coreyography.
On December 12, 2017, in a press announcement, Corey Feldman announced a new partnership with the child advocacy group Child USA where he will actively help to overturn statute of limitations laws state-by-state. Despite Corey Feldman’s interviews and relentless efforts to bring members of a Hollywood pedophile ring to justice, he has been accused of lying, running a scam, and trying to make money.
In a live Q&A session that was streamed on Twitter, Corey Feldman addressed the accusations that the Truth Campaign was a scam designed to make money for profit.
Corey was asked whether he had approached any of the directors he had previously worked with and asked for them to contribute to the campaign. He answered no and went into more detail about his views on money, spending on luxury items, and using the money to help make the world a better place.
Beginning at the 30:30 mark in the video player below, Corey Feldman addressed allegations that the Truth Campaign was more about raising funds than it was about stopping pedophiles.
He stated the following.
“All these people that want to say ‘Oh it’s a con, it’s a scam’ let me be very direct. If I wanted to make money out of any of this, I could have sold this story a long time ago. The Inquirer, people like that, they pay big money for these stories.
“I’ve never done it. Never done it. And I never sold out anybody for money. I never sold out myself for money. And that’s the bottom line guys.”

Corey Feldman explained his views about money, the Truth Campaign, and stated that if he wanted to profit from his experiences in Hollywood or make money off the information he has, he would have sold it to magazines and tabloid sites, rather than launch a campaign to raise money to make a movie.
