Pop culture icon Corey Feldman has released heartfelt video message to announce the launch of Corey Feldman’s TRUTH campaign. The movement starts with a crowdfunding campaign to bring a movie based on his life to the silver screen. The film seeks to expose the pedophilia he believes has run rampant in Hollywood for decades.
In recent years, Feldman stated that both he and his long-time acting partner Corey Haim suffered sexual abuse by older men in the entertainment industry. While his experiences have fallen mostly upon deaf ears in the past decade, his voice is now being acknowledged by mainstream media outlets in the wake Harvey Weinstein scandal. In his video, Feldman makes a plea to other child stars to come forward, tell their stories and ultimately break the “dam of silence.”
The Indiegogo fundraising campaign is currently eyeing a $10 million goal will allow Feldman to write, direct, and distribute a major motion picture, as well as covering security and legal costs to protect his family.
