Corey Feldman is an easy target for jokes. His erratic performances on stage, his dress, his Angles basically everything. However I have always said he was a hell of an actor, he just fell into a hard living Hollywood lifestyle.
Back in 2013 he tied telling Barbara Walters about the problems of pedophilia in Hollywood and she blew him off. Well now that the floodgates have opened regarding the Weinstein scandal that old interview is making the rounds and getting her some serious heat.

Barbara Walters is the latest star to find herself sucked into the death spiral of disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
An old video of Walters shutting down actor Corey Feldman when he spoke out about sex abuse in Hollywood on “The View” is recirculating with calls for Walters to apologize.
Feldman, who has spoken publicly about the abuse he suffered along with fellow ‘80s star Corey Haim, appeared on “The View” in 2013 and did not shy away from speaking out about the powerful person in Hollywood who harmed him. Walters challenged his claim in the sit-down that is now making the rounds as allegations of abuse mount against Weinstein.
This isn’t the first time Walters has been taken to task for her interviewing style. The ABC star has often been criticized for indulging the powerful in Hollywood.
The new criticism also comes one month after reports surfaced that the former “20/20” host is “forgetful, fearful of falling, and isolated.”
Her rep, Cindi Berger, told Fox News at the time that the reports were false, adding, “I see Barbara every 2-3 weeks and she’s fine. I’m actually seeing her next week for tea.”
I for one think she does owe Feldman an apology, not that it will help but because sh was wrong in blowing him off.
A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below…bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.
After more than two decades of TV shows, video games and animated movies, the Pokemon franchise is finally venturing into the world of live action film storytelling. But rather than deliver an adaptation of Ash Ketchum's anime adventures, the new Pokemon movie will be based off the Great Detective Pikachu video game. Unlike other Pikachus, who only say variations of their name (like nearly every other Pokemon), this version of the electrically-charged mouse speaks like a normal person. And if a new report is to be believed, four big Hollywood names are being considered to lend some star power as the unique Pikachu.
According to That Hashtag Show, Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson are all supposedly being considered by Legendary Entertainment to play the starring Pikachu in a motion capture performance. These actors haven't had any meetings or discussions with the production company yet, their names have just supposedly been tossed around by the Detective Pikachu creative team. It's possible the Pokemon movie will end up turning elsewhere for the actor to voice Pikachu, but for now, these are some interesting candidates.

From The Wrap
Molly Ringwald has joined the growing chorus of women in Hollywood speaking out against an industry-wide culture of sexism and harassment, speaking about her own encounter with disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein in a column for The New Yorker.
In the column, titled “All The Other Harveys,” Ringwald noted that while she wasn’t sexually harassed by Weinstein, she was warned about working with him when she starred in one of the first films he produced in 1988. After witnessing some uncomfortable encounters between Weinstein and the crew, she came to see him as “volatile.” She also criticized him for taking over the film and putting out a poster in which she was drawn in a 1950s pinup dress without her knowledge or consent.
“Thankfully, I wasn’t cajoled into a taxi, nor did I have to turn down giving or getting a massage,” Ringwald wrote. “I was lucky. Or perhaps it was because, at that moment in time, I was the one with more power.”
Instead, Ringwald’s encounters with sexual harassment have come from others. “When I was fourteen, a married film director stuck his tongue in my mouth on set,” she wrote. Later, just prior to her move from Hollywood to Paris, Ringwald was forced by a director to allow a lead actor to put a dog collar around her neck during an audition. When she tearfully told her agent about the incident, he responded with a flippant joke.
“When I was thirteen, a fifty-year-old crew member told me that he would teach me to dance, and then proceeded to push against me with an erection,” added Ringwald.
Ringwald concluded by noting that for many women, such instances of harassment are very common, and that Hollywood needs to stop accepting such behavior as part of doing business.
“I hope that young women will one day no longer feel that they have to work twice as hard for less money and recognition, backward and in heels. It’s time. Women have resounded their cri de coeur. Listen.”
Filming has wrapped on the fraught production of Lucasfilm‘s Han Solo spinoff movie, which saw Phil Lord and Chris Miller packing up their things and leave during shooting. Ron Howard came in, bringing a veteran, reassuring hand behind the camera, and a pleasant and engaging social media presence. Now, he’s heading into post-production with one more message.
The director hit Twitter today and revealed the official title of the movie, which is the fairly bland, “Solo: A Star Wars Story“:
It’s simple, effective, dull, and certain to start many memes (or as safesolvent suggested “Yolo: A Star Wars Story,” amirite?). Anyway, in case you forgot, the movie stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, and will explore Han and Chewie’s adventures before the events of “Star Wars: A New Hope,” including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.
Well, at least that’s what the logline was before the whole Lord/Miller fiasco, so who knows.
“Solo: A Star Wars Story” opens on May 25, 2018.
