The child star says his life is at risk after he spoke out against pedophilia in Hollywood.
In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, many other people and parts of Hollywood are having searchlights cast upon them.
The accusations for Weinstein keep coming, and in light of this former child star Corey Feldman thought it was the right time to speak out about his personal experiences of pedophilia in Hollywood.
The star has claimed that this endangered his life. Shortly after he gave his statements, he was arrested for carrying a small amount of cannabis, and the movie start says the way he was treated by cops was a threat to his life, in which he believes was an attempt to ‘shut him up’.
Feldman was huge in Hollywood when he was younger with many friends in high places, and he feels that the information that he has to expose would send shock-waves through the industry.
Feldman was recently quoted as saying that pedophilia in Hollywood was a huge problem, and he is striving to get the truth out, he says he needs help and support from people to give his claims credence, presumably spurred on by the support the women of Hollywood have received after bravely coming forward.
The Weinstein scandal showed just how ingrained abuse in Hollywood is, and despite huge numbers of people knowing the truth, just how hard it is to expose someone when they are in a position of high power.
Feldman has attributed the death of his childhood co-star Corey Haim to the abuse they both suffered when starting out in the industry, he died aged just 38 after a long history of drug abuse.
In the video below Feldman talks about his deep concerns over pedophilia in Hollywood and the recent alleged attempt on his life in order to silence him.
