Alyssa Milano Says She Didn't Know Corey Haim And Corey Feldman Were Sexually Abused, Gets Slammed On Twitter
Alyssa Milano has publicly spoken out in support of Corey Feldman as he continues to raise funds for his Truth Campaign, though she denied any knowledge of Corey Haim or Corey Feldman enduring sexual abuse as teens. The former girlfriend of Corey Haim and child star has made recent headlines by revitalizing the #MeToo campaign that has spread globally. The campaign was an effort to raise awareness about the prevalence of sexual harassment, assault, and abuse, not only in Hollywood but on a global scale and was in response to the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations. Though many were happy that Alyssa showed her support, others slammed her on social media networks and accused her of not being truthful when she stated she didn't know the two Coreys had been sexually abused.
People on social media have taken a harsh, critical tone with Milano as they accused her of keeping the information quiet. Not only was Alyssa one of Corey Haim's girlfriends, she was a frequent attendee at the Alphy's Soda Pop Club teen parties where many believe were organized by the alleged abusers.
She addressed the comments and then shared her support for Corey Feldman.

Still, many are continuing to attack Alyssa Milano through Twitter and other social media networks.
