One of the most despicable crimes that can be committed is pedophilia. Unfortunately, because its victims are children, they often lack the courage to speak out about their abusers, despite the fact that the abuse they suffer can affect them long into their adult lives.

The Harvey Weinstein scandal inspired many big-name Hollywood stars to open up about the abuse they have suffered, and this inspired renewed interest in Corey Feldman’s claims from 2011 that he and the late Corey Haim were abused as child stars in the 80s.

Then, in November of last year, Feldman announced plans to crowdfund a movie about the pedophile ring which existed in Hollywood. He also expressed concerns for his safety, worried that his exposure of Hollywood abusers had made him a target for physical assault.

Now, the 47-year-old has claimed that he was stabbed in Los Angeles by a “wolfpack” in “attempted murder plot as revenge for revealing names of Hollywood pedophiles”. Feldman made the claim on Twitter on Tuesday night and accompanied it with pictures of himself in hospital.

The video below provides more information about this shocking incident: 

According to the actor, he was stabbed inside his car. He revealed on Twitter that his vehicle was approached by three men as his security was distracted. One of these men proceeded to open his car door and stab him with “something”.

Feldman’s description of his attackers as a “wolfpack” is a reference to a group of powerful Hollywood players the actor is convinced want him dead because he outed alleged pedophiles in the entertainment industry, including child agent Marty Weiss.
