Despite ridicule from Barbara Walters, Corey Feldman works on a plan to get justice for molested child actors (Video)

Are pedophiles the next domino to fall in Hollywood.

As the entertainment world continues to reel from the news that director Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed and abused women for years, Corey Feldman is among those pushing for the long rumored Hollywood pedophile sex underworld to be revealed.

Former child actor Corey Feldman has spent years calling out the practice of Hollywood A-listers sexually exploiting young actors who try to make their mark in show business.

In a series of tweets on Thursday, Feldman, who starred in 1980s movies like “The Goonies” and “Stand By Me,” continued to insist that he was abused as a child actor.

But, he stressed, he would not be going on any talk shows to reveal the names of his abusers because it would be “fruitless,” and also because he fears for the safety of his family.

But he said he wants other witnesses to come forward.

Feldman has been outspoken for years about sexual abuse he said that he and his friend, and fellow child actor, Corey Haim, suffered in the 1980s.

A recently unearthed video of an appearance on “The View” years ago showed Barbara Walters chastising Feldman for making the accusations.

A video clip from a 2013 episode of The View where he shares these revelations about the abuse in the industry has resurfaced after allegations came to light that disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed and abused those working in the industry:

“There are people that were the people that did this to both me and Corey [Haim] that are still working. They’re still out there, and that are some of the richest most powerful people in this business. And they do not want me saying what I am saying right now,” Feldman tells The View panelists.

The former ’80s child star tried to explain to host Barbara Walters that he, along with his best friend Corey Haim, had been sexually abused by older, powerful men in Hollywood. Feldman added that he believed the abuse led Haim to drug addiction and ultimately his sudden death in 2010.

“Are you saying they are pedophiles and that they are still in this business?” Walters asks incredulously, to which Feldman replies, “Yes.”

“They don’t want me here right now. They want me dead,” he added.

After Feldman advised parents who want their kids to enter show business not to go into it blindly, Walters cuts him off, saying, “You’re damaging an entire industry!”

“I’m sorry,” Feldman replied.

And Feldman is not the only one that believes the walls are closing in on Tinsel Town’s pedophiles.

Evan Rachel Wood, star of HBO’s “Westworld” said on Twitter that it would be “the next dam to break.”

It may be starting to break. This week an agent specializing in working with young talent, Tyler Grasham, was fired from the APA agency as several actors accused him of sexually abusing them as kids.
