Barbara Walters once chastised Corey Feldman for saying that pedophilia and other sexual abuse was widespread in Hollywood. Seriously, she did. She said that Feldman (who didn’t name anyone out of fear) was jeopardizing “an entire industry.”
Hollywood has sown a lot of dark seeds. Let’s see what Hollywood reaps.
Remember also that many of these “powerful people” are connected politically. With lots of pictures taken with prominent politicians at parties etc.
But silence. Or at least there WAS silence. Keep the pressure on these folks. They’ve done enough damage.

Feldman tells Barbara Walters, “I’m saying . . . the people that did this to both me and Corey, that are still working, they’re still out there and they’re some of the richest, most powerful people in this business. And they do not want me saying what I’m saying right now.”
Walters fairly clutches her pearls. “Are you saying that they’re pedophiles?” she asks.
“Yes,” Feldman says. As he went on to warn parents of hopeful children, Walters chastised him.
“You’re damaging an entire industry!” she said.
Yes, Corey Feldman makes the painful public pronouncement that he and Haim were molested repeatedly, plenty in Hollywood knew, that it still goes on, and Walters defends an industry that still reveres Woody Allen and Roman Polanksi.
Would anyone talk to a female rape victim like that? Will anyone listen to Feldman now?
As recently as 2016, Feldman testified to The Hollywood Reporter that he and Haim were repeatedly molested as child stars.
“All these men were all friends,” Feldman said of the perpetrators. “Ask anybody from our group of kids at that time. They were passing us back and forth to each other.”
