“I’m saying that the people who did this to both me and Corey Haim are still working, they’re still out there and there’s some of the most richest, most powerful people in this business. And they do not want me saying what I’m saying right now,” he stated.

“Are you saying that they’re pedophiles?” Walters asked.

“Yes,” he answered, to which the bewildered host replied: “You’re damaging an entire industry!”

Feldman, surprised by Walters’ reaction, responded, “I’m sorry, I’m not trying to. I’m just saying it’s a very important serious topic.”

The news of Barbara Walter’s shocking comment, comes after hundreds of women came forward to share their experience with sexual harassment. The revolution began with Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct in Hollywood, and now it seems, Walters has been dragged into the controversy.
