You'd sprinkle sugar on his balls and let them soften in their own juices?

It's all some seriously sad and skeevy shit. We'll see

But would you then testify against him and then show up at his funeral and then do one of his signature dances? It feels like he threw Michael Jackson under the bus during the trial for publicity and then once he died and it became popular to like him again he flipped back to honoring him.

Don't get me wrong I think Michael Jackson was a pedophile and im not the least bit sorry he is dead but it seems so creepy and wrong to take advantage of a molestation trial that way. But it makes sense, I always got a weird fucked up vibe off that dude. He did the Adam Carolla radio show a few years back and after he left they said they all got a "dark" feeling from him even though he seemed perfectly nice.

Good post.  I know this may sound strange, but in the past few years, I've hated seeing kids in movies because I know what they have to go through to be there.  It's a terrible thing to put a child through, unless they're seriously having fun it's something they absolutely want as a career...but most of them probably don't and are being put through this because of lazy parents who see the talented kid as a meal ticket.

And honestly I think Haim's death really affected Feldman and he just doesn't care anymore.  Good for him trying to bring a little justice into the world.

I get the sense that a lot of people who experience abuse/exploitation as young actors are broken inside.  If you talk to molestation victims, many of them feel so sullied, so compromised in their deepest core they can never be truly authentic around "normal" people.  Corey Feldman is f*cked up without a doubt, as was Corey Haim, as was Jonathan Brandis, as was Rodney Harvey, as was Dana Plato, going all the way back to Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer and Bobby Driscoll.  Even experiencing the unreal wash of fame at a young age--going to parties to play cute for "important people" and having grownups kiss your ass and try to get things out of you--then becoming has-beens by puberty must just trample a psyche, and so many of them end up strung out by their teens, Drew Barrymore, Eddie Furlong.  I don't think it's fair to judge people who've been through extreme experiences in the same way you'd judge people with a "normal" childhood.  Of course he's different in a weird/bad way.  I don't think that automatically means he's lying about this.

I feel the same way, but some child actors turn out OK and the difference seems to be strong parents who will shelter their kids from exploitation and give them normal boundaries and responsibilities, chores, school, no grownup parties.  Some are also just innately stronger people and get through it intact, like Brooke Shields, Jodie Foster, Natalie Portman, etc.  But there really should be stronger welfare laws for kids in "the business" to protect them from their own parents and the disgusting people that exploit them.   I don't think shows like Toddlers & Tiaras, Dance Moms and 16 and Pregnant should be allowed on the air either.

And, yeah, I think Corey Feldman is doing the right thing.

This is an important story, but man do I need to see it reported somewhere besides Radaronline.  The trashy breathlessness of that piece made the already sickening subject matter feel, somehow, even sleazier.

I don't disagree.  If there's any truth to the matter (which I truly suspect that there is), it'll get picked up by legit sources and start gaining traction.

ASo....who the hell does anyone think it is? They sure make it sound like it's someone who is a household name.

This is so sick and sleazy. Not just the subject matter and the situation but the way Feldman also seems to be using it to draw attention to himself as well just makes me feel icky too. Not trivializing whatever happened but god damn....is there a lower thing than this to use to keep your name in the press? Am I seeing this totally wrong or what?

I'm really worried that it's going to be Tom Cruise, just because I love Tom Cruise. I'm trying to think of other big stars around during the 80's who are still really powerful today and not coming up with any names.



God, it better not be Tom Cruise.

This whole thing was brought up on another board that I'm on.  One person, who I've known for years and has some connections in the industry, knows who is being investigated/looked at, both in terms of the Feldman/Haim rape and molestation claims and in terms of other sex rings.  Some of the names that he's mentioned or alluded to are indeed big in the industry...some surprised me.  You can probably guess a few of them.

Going off of the names that I was told, it might be awkward to watch GREASE or PULP FICTION again.

Luckily, Tom Cruise was in neither of those movies so I think he may be in the clear, guys.

GREASE is awkward enough now that I know Sandy was dead the whole film.
