The actor Corey Feldman, who has been a key figure in accusations of sexual abuse against powerful people in Hollywood, says he was stabbed by a stranger.
Feldman posted two photos from the hospital on his Twitter account and wrote, “IM IN THE HOSPITAL! I WAS ATTACKED 2NITE! A MAN OPENED MY CAR DOOR & STABBED ME W SOMETHING! PLEASE SAY PRAYERS 4 US! 🙏🏼🙏🏼 THANK GOD IT WAS ONLY MYSELF & MY SECURITY IN THE CAR, WHEN 3 MEN APPROACHED! WHILE SECURITY WAS DISTRACTED, W A GUY A CAR PULLED UP & ATTACKED! I’M OK!”
According to Fox 5, “Feldman says the LAPD is investigating the case as an attempted homicide. He claims the attack is connected to being outspoken about child sexual abuse in Hollywood.”
In the immediate wake of the #metoo movement igniting, Feldman had gone on the Dr. Oz show to allege that he was attacked at age 14. The man he accused denied the accusations.
Feldman claimed he has been threatened by a group called the “Wolfpack.” He wrote on Twitter, “@LAPD R CURRENTLY INVESTIGATING THE CASE AS AN ATTEMPTED HOMICIDE! I HAVE HAD MOUNTING THREATS ON ALL SM PLATFORMS BY THIS VILE ‘WOLFPACK’ &; THIS IM SURE IS A RESULT OF THOSE NEGATIVE ACTIONS! I HAVE REASON 2 BELIEVE ITS ALL CONNECTED! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! HOW SICK R THESE PPL?!?”
Feldman then shared a series of stories about the stabbing, especially those in British media and topped the retweets with comments like, “MORE DETAILS COMING SOON: Corey Feldman stabbed by knife-wielding thug in frenzied attempted murder attack.”
