The last few years have uncovered a HUGE problem with pedophiles in Hollywood and it continues to grow!
Most recently, Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood has jumped into the conversation.
The former child actor said pedophiles have been protected in the movie business by the powerheads and that abuse has probably not slowed down.
Wood said that while he had been protected from abuse in the industry, he knew others who had been “preyed upon” by the industry.
Before his death, child actor Cory Heim had hit rock bottom with depression and drugs. He had reported that he had been passed around beginning with power players on the set of Lucas.
His close friend, and co-actor Corey Feldman, wrote a book, Coreyography, where he recalls being told by trusted adults that it was “normal” for older men and young boys to have sexual relations in the industry.
Feldman was questioned about possible molestation charges by Michael Jackson before his trial. In his book the Stand By Me actor said his relationship with the pop king was one of the healthiest he had.
Feldman claims his complaints about pedophiles were ignored while they focused on Jackson solely. He makes very clear, Michael Jackson never touched him sexually or even tried to do so.
In 2012 he also told a British tabloid that when he was 14 and 15, older pedophiles had been “lurching around like vultures”.
The allegations that senior Hollywood power players have been protected have grown immensely in recent years.
Anne Henry is the co-founder of Bizparents, a group set up to help child actors. She states that Hollywood is presently sheltering over 100 active abusers and said a “tsunami” of claims was beginning.
Every one of these pedophiles needs to be outed and permanently imprisoned. Actually, worse, but that is another subject.
It is insane that these pedophiles are continuing to be protected. Time to name names Feldman.
It is sickening that the protections are not in place within the Hollywood industry.
