How the tables have turned. Former child star and Hollywood prodigy Corey Feldman are often named as the real instigator of the #MeToo campaign as he already in 1993 claimed that Hollywood was full of pedophiles of which he and his late brother were the victims.
However, in a bizarre turn of events, the Los Angeles Police Department has now confirmed that they are investigating an accusation of sexual battery against the well-known anti-pedophilia campaigner Feldman.
Apparently, a woman lodged a complaint against the 46-year-old actor this week in relation to an incident that allegedly took place in February last year already (seems a bit odd to wait a whole year before reporting it but ok).
Mr. Feldman immediately denied the allegation in a strongly worded tweet “the last thing I would ever want is 2 make some1 feel taken advantage of in any way (sic).”
He then continued with: “We r fighting this war of inappropriate behavior against all human beings, because of my own painful experiences, so the last thing I would ever want is 2 make some1 feel taken advantage of in any way. I assure u my attorneys r dealing w these egregious allegations as we speak!”
Even though police refused at this point to reveal any details of an ongoing investigation, there are reports in the US press that Mr Feldman is accused of groping the alleged victim’s buttocks.

LAPD spokesman Sal Ramirez explained: “On January 8 of this year, we had a female victim who filed a police report of sexual battery and the suspect is named as Corey Feldman.”
“The incident occurred on February 4, 2017. The robbery and homicide division is handling the investigation.”
Mr. Feldman has always been very open about his claims that he was sexually molested as a child actor in Hollywood. during an appearance on the Dr. Oz show, he accused bit actor Jon Grissom and Alphy Hoffman as two of his alleged abusers.
