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.
