'Goonies' child star made headlines with 'bizarre' TV appearance
Singer Pink has offered her support to former child star Corey Feldman after his musical performance on US TV’s Today Show went viral last week.
Feldman – famous for his roles in ’80s films The Goonies, Stand by Me and The Lost Boys – played his song ‘Go 4 It’ with his band Corey’s Angels, a performance that some deemed bizarre.
With Feldman hitting out at online bullying following the performance, Pink has taken to Twitter with words of support. “Well I love ya @Corey_Feldman and I know how much it takes to get up there and do your thing. Keep your head up and know that you’re loved,” she wrote.
Responding to Pink’s message, Feldman replied: “THANK U SO MUCH! I Really appreciate that public endorsement. U Hav always been such a Wonderful artist, activist, n overall Human!” See both tweets below.
Speaking in a now-deleted Facebook Live video, Feldman said of the backlash he’s faced: “It was a song, okay? It wasn’t that weird. I’m sorry if it’s not good enough for you, but you don’t have to beat us up. I just want to say that, like, why is it okay to, like, publicly shame us?… I don’t understand… It’s, like, not PC to, like, say somebody is fat or somebody is white or somebody is black or somebody is yellow or green or if they have a short leg or if they have a missing finger. Like we can’t talk about these things. But it’s okay to bash Corey Feldman and the Angels.”
