Yeah, he's bit of an ass but I always liked Corey Feldman since Stand By Me. Not as much as River Phonix and like everyone else my very favorite character in the film was Lardass but he was good too. So much so to this day, when I think of 'em, I still think of his nutty character with a melted ear. Liked 'em in The Goonies as well but of course Chunk made that movie.
He's one former child actor who grew up without going batshit crazy, at least by today's standards. But who knows; maybe he decided to delay his psychosis till now and we're seeing the signs of a man about to start that tortuous journey to the rock bottom many former child actors typically experience in their 20's; 40 is the new 20 after all. A horrible auto-tuned, overly engineer pop song has pretty well become a right-of-passage for Hollywood fixtures himself; that's not the malfunction. Rather, the very fact he shot a video mimicking Michael Jackson is what I find very disturbing.
Reportedly, he was quoted saying, "He (Michael Jackson) did real damage in my overall life. I was a 12-year-old boy who was hurt by his family and ignored by people at school. Michael would sit and talk to me for hours and he would listen. Then he would get bored. The biggest thing that Michael's done to children is befriending the ones that are in need and then abandoning them." [cite]
He also testified against Michael Jackson in his 2005 child molestation trial saying, "I started looking at each piece of information, and with that came this sickening realization that there have been many occurrences in my life and in my relationship to Michael that have created a question of doubt." [cite] Why would anyone in their right mind want to pay homage to someone after an experience like that? Why would anyone ever dress up and act like someone they suspected could be a pedophile? Suppose forgiveness goes a long way......or he's just completely mental.
