Side note: “The Pedo Rings of Hollywood” sounds like the Lord of the Rings as re-told by Satan.
Yesterday I posted about how Elijah Wood pretty much co-signed what Corey Feldman has been telling us for years by saying that there’s parties where Hollywood power players prey on vulnerable kid actors trying to get into the business. If you read that post, then Elijah would like you to take your internal mouse, hover over that piece of information and right-click delete it. Because Elijah says that his words were molded into click-bait.
The Guardian reported Elijah as saying in his interview with The Sunday Times that when he was a child actor in the game, he knew of Hollywood parties thrown by pedophile rings. Elijah said that his mom would never let him go to parties, but he knows that some of his fellow child actors were victims. Elijah said there “are a lot of vipers in this industry – people who only have their own interests in mind.” On Twitter yesterday, Elijah said in a series of tweets that he was talking about a documentary about child touchers in Hollywood called An Open Secret and wasn’t talking about anything he saw or was told firsthand:
“The Sunday Times interviewed me about my latest film but the story became about something else entirely. It prompted a number of false and misleading headlines. I had just seen a powerful documentary and I briefly spoke with the reporter about the subject which had consequences. I did not intend or expect. Lesson learned. Let me be clear: This subject of child abuse is an important one that should be discussed and properly investigated. But as I made absolutely clear to the writer, I have no first hand experience or observation of the topic, so I cannot speak with any authority beyond articles I have read and films I have seen.”
Hmmm… So either the evil powers-that-be in the Hollywood game got to Elijah and shut him up, or the media used his words to make headlines that everyone will click on. I’m going with the first one, because the second one has never ever happened in the history of the Internet. Ever.
