Jewish-American actor Corey Feldman promised to expose the Hollywood pedophile ring in a declaration on Youtube Wednesday.
The Youtube video has been viewed more than 700,000 times and is linked to an Indiegogo account that raised an estimated $140,000 for a documentary. This is considerably short of the goal of 10,000,000 dollars.
In his tearful statement Feldman claimed that since he started to expose the industry, his life has been under threat. Also, His arrest for marijuana possession was an attempt to intimidate him from speaking out.

He claims that he and many other young actors, including his late friend Corey Haim, are victims and were made to feel scared about coming forward. Feldman says that the perpetrators had significant power in Hollywood and at least one is still active in the industry.According to the Hollywood Reporter
, Judy Haim, mother of Feldman’s best friend and co-star Corey Haim, has referred to Feldman as a “Scam Artist.” She denies that there is a pedophile ring and the campaign is a farce.
According to Judy Haim, Corey Haim was victim to sexual abuse one time but was not victim to a Pedophile ring as claimed by Feldman. Corey Haim died of pneumonia at the age of 38.
Judy Haim said, “Now he wants $10 million to do it? Come on. It’s a long con. He’s a scam artist. If he was serious about this, he’d share the information he has with the police.”
The actor became more vocal about sexual abuse of minors in the movie industry since Harvey Weinstein
was exposed as abusing women for decades.
Feldman was a famous child star in Hollywood during the 80s. He acted in blockbusters such as Goonies
but has kept a much lower profile as an adult.
