Corey Feldman Vows To Release Names Of 6 Powerful Hollywood Pedophiles

For years, actor and former child star Corey Feldman has been warning anybody who would listen that Hollywood is a place where adults have more inappropriate contact with children than probably anywhere else in the world.

So it’s unsurprising given the renewed focus on sexual assault and harassment brought about by the Harvey Weinstein scandal that Feldman’s accusations would receive renewed attention, considering he made the media rounds as recently as 2016 to talk about how a pedophile ring in Hollywood abused him and his friend, fellow actor Corey Haim – actions Feldman blames for Haim’s eventual death from a drug overdose.

And yesterday, he returned to the “Today” show and, during an interview with Matt Lauer vowed to release the names of six men who he alleges participated in the abuse of himself, Haim and other young stars. The interview followed Feldman’s announcement in a YouTube video last week that he was launching an Indiegogo page to try and raise money for a feature film about pedophilia in Hollywood that he hopes to direct. However, as Lauer pointed out, Feldman’s target budget - $10 million – appears lofty. But the former child star appears determined to tell his story the way he wants it to be told.

Here's an excerpt from his interview:

LAUER: “Why are you talking to me? Why aren’t you talking to the police right now?”

FELDMAN: “I told the police. In fact if anyone wants to go back to 1993, when I was interviewed by the Santa Barbara Police Department. I sat there and gave them the names. They are on record. They have all of this information, but they were scanning Michael Jackson. All they cared about was trying about to find something on Michael Jackson.”

LAUER: “Who you said, by the way, did not abuse you.”

FELDMAN: “Who Michael was innocent. And that was what the interview was about with the pollice in 1993. I told them, he is not that guy. And they said, maybe you don’t understand your friend. And I said, no, I know the difference between pedophiles and somebody that is not a pedophile because I have been molested. Here’s the names, go investigate. And let me push this forward, there are thousands of people in Hollywood that have the same information. Why is it all on me? Why is it, if I don’t release the names in the next two months, six months or a year, I’m the bad guy. I’m the victim here. I’m the one who has been abused. I’m the one who is trying to come forward and do something about it.”

LAUER: “But —“ [crosstalk]

FELDMAN: “Please, I’m sorry. There are thousands of people out there, Matt, who have this information. Any one of those child actors that went to the teenage soda pop clubs with me when I was a kid, know who those people are and the people who ran it. Anybody can go back through history and look at the Teen magazines and say what was the name of that venue they were promoting and who ran that venue own who endorsed it.”

LAUER: “You said you have death threats because you have this information.”

FELDMAN: “Yes.”

LAUER: “And have threatened to expose it. Another reason I think to go to police. That’s a crime to threaten someone’s life.”

FELDMAN: “I’ve gone to the police with that, as well.”

LAUER: “And what would be wrong about going to the police now again? Didn’t work out in Santa Barbara.”

FELDMAN: “There’s a statute of limitations, Matt, in the state of Claifornia which protects people. It’s not that way in New York. It’s that way only where the movie industry is, conveniently enough in California. That’s the seriousness of this. You cannot. Because if I were to go to the police, I would be he one who’s getting sued. Henceforth, I need a team of lawyers and I need a team of security to be around me at all times, to keep me safe so I can get this message done.”

LAUER: “Really, really quickly.”

FELDMAN: “I’m not playing around. It’s serious stuff. I vow I will release every name that I have any knowledge of, period. And nobody’s going to stop me this time, as long as people support this.”

Of course, legal problems stemming from sexual-harassment or -assault allegations are a major problem for Hollywood’s victims, as the Weinstein scandal helped to expose. Yet Feldman, who starred in 1980s classics like “Stand By Me” and “The Goonies”, is wrong about the California statute of limitations on sexual abuse cases – it was thrown out late last year by Gov. Jerry Brown. Still, it’s not altogether unreasonable – particularly for somebody who is not accustomed to having his allegations taken seriously – for Feldman to be afraid of legal repercussions of outing powerful pedophiles.

But after simmering on the backburner for years, the levee of public outrage over pedophilia in Hollywood could very well be about to break. Case in point: Over the weekend, actor Anthony Rapp – famous for his roles in “Rent” and “Dazed and Confused” – accused actor Kevin Spacey of molesting him when he was 14. In an unprecedented development, Netflix cancelled Spacey’s show House of Cards, and the actor has suffered tremendous reputational damage that could threaten his ability to find work.

In the shuffle of the Weinstein allegations, some have pointed out that Bryan Singer, who directed the X-Men movies and other mega-budget blockbusters, has been repeatedly accused of pedophilia, has been able to easily find work despite the stigma. Two lawsuits alleging abuse by Singer were eventually dismissed, but actors have continued to single him out.

Regardless of whether Feldman ever comes forward, it appears Hollywood is finally being forced to acknowledge that both men and women are subjected to sexual abuse and coercion, though perhaps not in the same numbers.

Exactly.  He should at least be adding something like 'I've got the names, and associated evidence in a sealed envelope filed with 6 different law firms and 5 personal friends, and if any unfortunate accident should befall me, they will be releasing the information to any media prepared to run with the story'.

Technically, he's not a "kike". Allow me to educate you and many like you on this site...The term is of German slang origin, and the term used was "Kiker".It refers to a Polish Jew, whose names often ended in a "ski". That's where the "ki" part of Kiker comes from. It was shorthand, and was not always used in a derogatory tone. German Americans dropped the "r" and changed it to "Kike". Presumably they used it to refer to all Jews, but they lost the meaning in the process of being lazy in their labeling.Note also that most Poles, whose last name ended in a "ski", we're Catholic, not Jewish. It was thus also a reference to all Polish people, although Germans then typically said "Polake", when referring to a Catholic Polish person.And now you know.

Incorrect. Kike comes from the Yiddish word "kikel" (circle) which is what the jews immigrating to the US used rather than x's, which looked too much like crosses.Jews are big believers in symbology. That is why whenever you see a malformed swastika, it is always a Jew that did it. It is intended to garner support from the goyim without lending power to the symbol of the people they so hated.

Both of you are partially incorrect. The earliest recorded uses of the word were in 1900[1] and 1904.[2][3] The source of the term is uncertain, but the Encyclopedia of Swearing stated the most reasonable and most likely origin of the term is the one proposed by Leo Rosten,[4] according to whom:

The word kike was born on Ellis Island when there were Jewish migrants who were also illiterate (or could not use Latin alphabet letters). When asked to sign the entry-forms with the customary "X", the Jewish immigrants would refuse, because they associated an X with the cross of Christianity. Instead, they drew a circle as the signature on the entry-forms. The Yiddish word for "circle" is kikel (pronounced KY-kul), and for "little circle", kikeleh (pronounced KY-kul-uh). Before long the immigration inspectors were calling anyone who signed with an "O" in place of an "X" a kikel or kikeleh or kikee or, finally and succinctly, kike.[5]

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, it may be an alteration of the endings –ki or –ky common in the personal names of Jews in eastern Europe who immigrated to the United States in the early 20th century.[2] A variation or expansion of this theory published in Our Crowd, by Stephen Birmingham, postulates that the term "kike" was coined as a put-down by the assimilated U.S. Jews from Germany to identify eastern European and Russian Jews: "Because many Russian [Jewish] names ended in 'ki', they were called 'kikes'—a German Jewish contribution to the American vernacular. The name then proceeded to be co-opted by non-Jews as it gained prominence in its usage in society, and was later used as a general derogatory slur." Compounding the mysterious origin of this term, in 1864 in the UK the word ike or ikey was used as a derogatory term for Jews, which derived from the name "Isaac", a common Jewish name.[4][6]

Not "incorrect", but incomplete. If you go back to your Wiki source, you'll see BOTH versions -- each from a different Ashkenazi source.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/KikeA variation or expansion of this theory published in Our Crowd, by Stephen Birmingham, postulates that the term "kike" was coined as a put-down by the assimilated U.S. Jews from Germany to identify eastern European and Russian Jews: "Because many Russian [Jewish] names ended in 'ki', they were called 'kikes'—a German Jewish contribution to the American vernacular. The name then proceeded to be co-opted by non-Jews as it gained prominence in its usage in society, and was later used as a general derogatory slur."Call it a draw.

Felchman is total Hollywood, he's going to capitalize no matter what.

Like every other scumbag in Hollywood he's charging for the "full release".

Fun trivia...Did you know that when MJ started having financial probems, that Paul McCartney (by now Sir Paul McCartney) bought back the IP Rights for The Beatles from MJ?For several hundred million less than what MJ paid him some years earlier. Like Elvis, MJ had crafty and selfish finance people around him, and was equally reckless with his millions. Ah, the troubles of the rich.

...There is one person to blame in the death of Corey Haim, and that person happens to be a Hollywood mogul — and that person needs to be exposed but unfortunately I can’t be the one to do it,” he said.Feldman and Haim met at age 14 when their parallel careers brought them both to the film “Stand By Me” – directed by Rob Reiner... .https://voat.co/v/pizzagate/1515991

He's had 30+ years to name names...do it already. Whatever remains of the Hollyweird credibility is literally teetering on an abyss. Another open secret of 'we all knew he was raping children but he's such a great artist' and the whole shit show falls off the cliff.

Odds on he won't. He's probably running a hussle - pay up pervs or your names get released. Why? Because he's been saying he'll talk for a long time now and still hasn't.

Try feeling sympathy for him and his family.  He'll wind up dead in a hotel room and 95% of public will say, "You see, I knew he was just a junkie."  He wants and deserves protection for himself and his family.  Since  when is it his responsibility to be the one?Finally, this comes from my own history.  I did commercials in the 1970s and early 1980s in NYC.  I would see kids like Ricky Schroeder and Peter Billingsley & many other known names at the interviews.   The people working in NY were such scumbags I would never, ever let my kids go near acting.  It's a shit show of ego and crazy.  It paid for 4 years of college and left me with >$10,000 after graduation - including studying abroad - and I'd never let a kid near it.  I have also told dozens of other friends and parents to just stay the fuck away.THINK ECONOMICS: Any business where there are more people who want to do a job than jobs available, you'll see some form of abuse.  Supply exceeds demand - abuse the supply, because they're replaceable.  Try walking out of an interview because you were creeped out only to be yelled out by a parent saying, "I spent 3 hours getting you here round trip."  And, that's with nothing happening and me just walking away from an interview at 12 years of age.I can't even begin to imagine the sick shit these kids lived, and I believe I'm the same age as Feldman.Don't give him money.  He doesn't owe you or me anything.  He might be making an odd choice, but his life has made him an odd guy, eking out a little happiness wherever he can.

Yes, to make this 100% clear that I'm not fucking around:I walked into an interview - after signing in and waiting to be called.In the room I was told to strip down to my underwear and sing "Happy Birthday"It was an interview for Underoos -- those queer underwear that were popular in the late 70s and early 80s.I said, "No fucking way  - I'm out."  And, I walked out.  No big deal, but those creepy fuckers got >100 kids on film dancing around in their underwear in one day. It was the one time my parent 'forgot' the commercial I was interviewing for - I always knew what I was going in for.  The funny part is that a family friend gave me Superman underwear for Christmas that year.  I threw it back at the and said to keep it.  My parents went bat-shit crazy.  It was harmless and they had no idea.  Their son was a little light in the loafers and probably loved that shit; I didn't.  There's your story.

Finally - if you want a little more 'proof' - here's me doing a print ad for Jets Marshmallows.It's bizarre, but my neice found it on the Internet searching for something else.https://www.flickr.com/photos/37523773@N05/4808829080I've got about a dozen commercials still on VHS tape.  I was 15 when I did my last commercial.  SAG (Screen Actor's Guild) wages were $333 per day for a principal (main character) in a commercial + royalties every time it would run on air.  I can only imagine what the pay is today. It's insane that I can see why parents do anything to get their kids involved.  I can also see why kids are so incredibly fucked up who were involved.I got commercials b/c I could read and repeat anything from the age of 5 and I wasn't a spoiled brat.  I was an easy kid to have on a set.  Otherwise, I didn't have much to offer.
