I mean, we’d cry too — this was almost as bad as Ashley Simpson’s embarrassing lip syncing scandal back in the day!
On Friday Corey Feldman performed his new song “Go 4 It” on the Today show, and afterwards he posted a live video on Facebook, where he broke down in tears about the gig. What’s the fuss about? Apparently the former movie star is upset about all the negative comments he received. In the now deleted post, Corey vented:
- “It was a song, okay? It wasn’t that weird. I’m sorry if it’s not good enough for you, but you don’t have to beat us up. I just want to say that, like, why is it okay to, like, publicly shame us? … I don’t understand … It’s, like, not PC to, like, say somebody is fat or somebody is white or somebody is black or somebody is yellow or green or if they have a short leg or if they have a missing finger. Like we can’t talk about these things. But it’s okay to bash Corey Feldman and the Angels.”
“We just wanted to tell everybody that, like, it’s been really painful,” Feldman added. “We put ourselves out there and we did the best that we could. And, like, I’ve never had such mean things said about me. Like constantly.” Maybe a better outfit selection would have helped? The album has a “good versus evil, heaven versus hell” theme, according to Corey, and he wore an all-black, hooded ensemble while a chorus of angels performed behind him.
“All we can say is that we tried really hard,” he continued. “Because we love our fans and we just wanted to give them the best show that we could. But we don’t deserve … these things that are said about us are awful. We can’t get out of bed right now. We’re petrified to even go out … And I’m sorry, but we just wanted the world to know, like, we’re really freaked out over this and it’s really not fair.”
“Public shaming should not be accepted, no matter who you are,” he concluded. “It doesn’t matter if they’re a celebrity or not. We deserve love and we deserve, like, normal life … It’s not okay, it’s not acceptable to call us freaks, weirdos, losers, whatever.”
