Corey Feldman says the criticism of his Today show performance has been “really painful” for him.
The former child star addressed the backlash in a since-deleted Facebook Live post after his performance of his new song “Go 4 It” went viral. Corey said, “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.”
He added, “Public shaming should not be accepted, no matter who you are. 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.” (People)
