People is reporting that Corey Feldman done changed his mind. While just a few days ago he was defending Michael Jackson over the allegations of child sexual abuse made in the (highly gross to watch) HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, it seems that a few days rest is all Corey needed to flip sides and now he is speaking out against MJ.
Corey was on CNN’s Headline News and he “clarified” his comments on Michael Jackson. Corey questioned the accusers and said that Michael Jackson never tried anything with him when he was a kid. I don’t think anyone knows what “clarify” means because it sure doesn’t mean “say the opposite of what I previously ranted about on Twitter.”
47-year-old Corey said this was “a very emotional time for me” and he wanted “people to put themselves in my shoes.”
“You’re a kid who has endured sexual abuse and during those times, I’m looking to somebody like Michael Jackson as a friend, as a big brother figure. And he was that person to me… However, as you’re friends with this guy, all of a sudden you start to hear more and more accusations thrown around by various people… It comes to a point where as an advocate for victims, as an advocate for changing the statutes of limitations to make sure victims’ voices are heard, it becomes impossible for me to remain virtuous and not at least consider what’s being said and not listen to what the victims are saying… [it’s] very important [to] consider all sides of this, even as uncomfortable as that might be.”
Corey has been highly-outspoken when it comes to speaking out about the pedos in Hollywood.
Corey continued by repeating that “absolutely nothing inappropriate ever happened” with him and Michael and said that he can no longer defend MJ but he also still doesn’t want to judge either:
“I don’t want to be perceived as I’m here to defend Michael Jackson, because I can no longer do that. I can not in good consciousness defend anyone who’s being accused of such horrendous things… But at the same time, I’m also not here to judge him, because again, he did not do those things to me and that was not my experience.”
He apologized to people who took his tweets “out of context” and thought he was challenging “the validity of the victims.” Then he admitted his ass didn’t even get through all four hours of that documentary, saying he “watched the first part, to be honest with you, it was very emotional, it was very painful, and I couldn’t watch all of it.”
He also made another statement on Twitter because I guess he was just so exhausted from making statements he had to make another?

I wonder if this means that Corey will stop wearing his hair like John Travolta in Grease and will burn all of his bejewelled jackets. Let the look die, Corey; it’s time to move on.
