For years, Feldman has alleged that both he and his best friend Corey Haim, who died from complications of drug abuse, were victims of this Hollywood “pedophilia ring,” one that he believes he has the power to “bring down.” In order to so, Feldman has started an Indiegogo campaign for a film on his life called “Corey Feldman’s TRUTH Campaign.” Feldman, who says he has been “living in fear” since he began the campaign, often seemed reluctant to name his alleged abusers.
However, with the exposé on Harvey Weinstein’s alleged history of sexual abuse came an influx of claims against various members of Hollwood’s elite — actor Kevin Spacey, comedian Louis C.K. and director Brett Ratner among them — serving as momentum for even more survivors to come forward, Feldman included.
Though Feldman has yet to announce Corey Haim’s abuser — an announcement which he said will break the most ground — Charlie Sheen’s name has been thrown into the mix, a claim which Sheen “categorically denies.”
Haim also expressed disdain for Hoffman just before he died. “I don’t think he was a good person at all . . . as far as Alphy goes, well, I’m not going to say it now, because people do change,” Haim told Vice. “I went through my time, too. I lost complete respect for Alphy Hoffman. Alphy sucks! Point-f–king-blank.”
Since the announcement, Fox News reports that Hoffman has virtually vanished from the internet. His Facebook has gone private and his MySpace appears to have been deleted.
