"Pedophiles and predators in Hollywood are just as rampant today, if not more so."
A day after Corey Feldman, author of Coreyography, was attacked on The View, some people in the industry are stepping forward to have his back.
Little House's Alison Armgrim, who was molested by her brother as a child and wrote about it in her own book, said that Hollywood predators seek out vulnerable children, such as children who are going through a divorce or who have uninvolved parents.
Anne Henry, of the child actors' rights group BizParentz, said that pedophilia is even more widespread than when Corey was a child: "Pedophiles and predators in Hollywood are just as rampant today, if not more so. The entertainment industry is much larger than it was in their day. Think how many cable channels there are. In Corey's day, there were channels 2-13. We also have the Internet today, which allows predators to virtually stalk and contact child actors in a more personal way."
Thank you Anne and Alison for setting Barbara Walters straight.
And now another story is circulating about the child of a member of a "well-known band." According to a source that spoke to Fox News, the band member recently found out that his underage daughter was having sex with another successful industry figure 25-30 years her senior. The incident was brushed under the rug out of fear of ruining the reputation of the perpetrator and his colleagues.
Thank you Corey for exposing the darkest side of this industry, despite your detractors.
