The TODAY Show Exploits Corey Feldman (Again)
That is a golden parka if I’ve ever seen one.
The former 80’s child star (think The Goonies, Stand By Me) talked briefly about being bullied after his last appearance on TODAY. Feldman received a lot of criticism, and he said some of the comments about his art made him cry. This morning, he said that he’s here to stay as a musician, and is dedicated to spreading “peace and love”. Unfortunately, he dropped an American flag on the ground during his performance, which didn’t really sit well with some people.
And this guy had some suspicions about why Feldman was asked to come back.
Regardless of your opinions about his performance, it’s clear that Corey Feldman just wants to spread love and positivity. In an open letter, Feldman writes:
“I, artist! As an artist, I bare my heart and soul for my love of creating art. Art is, after all, a form of personal self-expression. Through my art, I express my tears, my joy, my pain, my sorrows. I spread love with my messages of hope for tomorrow.”
He just wants to spread love, guys! Which is why it’s a bit upsetting that the TODAY show clearly doesn’t take him seriously, and is pretty much making fun of him by having him on air. His “Go 4 It” performance broke the Internet, and TODAY simply couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get that much traffic a second time. This isn’t Dinner for Schmucks!
Just a thought… but maybe bringing Corey Feldman back on the show was an easy distraction from the Billy Bush drama?
