Corey Feldman Calls Out Pedophilia in Hollywood in Wake of Weinstein | PEOPLE.com

01/07/2018

“This is not about fear of being sued!” he later tweeted. “Yes, that’s a real possibility. But the bigger reason is safety for my family.”

As more and more stars continue to expose stories of alleged sexual harassment and abuse in Hollywood in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Corey Feldman is speaking out again about the alleged abuse he suffered as a child actor — abuses he claims are part of a larger problem of pedophilia in Hollywood.

Meanwhile Feldman’s words hit just as news broke that APA agent Tyler Grasham had been fired from the Hollywood agency following a sexual assault claim made against him.

“[I’m] already over this,” he said. “My career was shut down, I have been mocked and shamed for doing what I have done to this point! I would love to see others come forward as there are many other witnesses to the crimes I have addressed. Still not one of my peers has offered up anything in a decade!”

WHILE NOT RISKING MY SAFETY & WELL BEING, U WILL KNOW WHEN THAT TIME COMES! AS 4 NOW, IM GLAD PPL R TALKING, & I PRAY THAT OTHERS COME FWD!

FORWARD AS THERE R MANY OTHER WITNESSES 2 THE CRIMES I HAVE ADDRESSED. STILL NOT 1 OF MY PEERS HAS OFFERED UP ANYTHING IN A DECADE!

The 46-years-year-old actor, who has been outspoken for years about this topic, wrote a series of impassioned tweets on Thursday explaining that his reluctance to disclose the names of his or anyone else’s abusers comes from his desire to protect his family.

Wolfhard wasn’t alone in his actions; Descendants star Cameron Boyce also fired Grasham, Entertainment Weekly confirmed.

“There are people that did this to me and Corey that are still working, they’re still out there, and they’re some of the most rich and powerful people in this business. And they do not want what I’m saying right now. They want me dead,” he told The View while promoting the book at the time.

“Nobody should live their lives in fear except those who committed these heinous crimes in the first place!” Feldman continued. “I have faith God will see this through!”

One of Grasham’s clients, 14-year-old Stranger Things and It star Finn Wolfhard, fired Grasham and parted ways with the agency on Friday as multiple accusations were leveled at the agent by former clients, including Blaise Godbe Lipman, who has appeared in episodes of Weeds and Hawaii-Five-O.

“It has been very difficult for me to stay quiet, but as much as I would love for all of those sickos to be brought to justice, I’ve tried to be respectful of Judy’s wishes,” Feldman told PEOPLE in October 2016.

Feldman, who is currently on tour with his band, retweeted news of Grasham’s alleged abuse on Friday. “I know there’s a lot of anger about all the pedophilia stuff right now,” he later wrote, reminding his fans of his tour. “Tonight, let’s focus on the healing power of music with a message of love and light.”

NOBODY SHOULD LIV THEIR LIVES IN FEAR EXCEPT THOSE WHO COMMITTED THESE HEINOUS CRIMES IN THE 1ST PLACE! I HAV FAITH GOD WILL C THIS THRU!
