Corey Feldman Breaks Down Over Fan Reaction To His TODAY Performance: ‘I’ve Never Had Such Mean Things Said About Me’

no title

The performance may have been awkward, but you have to feel a little bad for Corey Feldman.

The actor-turned-singer posted a now-deleted Facebook Live video in which he addressed the (many) critics of his TODAY show performance from earlier this week, and it isn’t pretty.

Sitting with one of his “Corey’s Angels” named Courtney Anne (pictured together, above), Feldman revealed that an un-ending deluge of mean-spirited comments about the bizarre performance are making his life miserable, saying:

“We just wanted to tell everybody that, like, it’s been really painful. 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.”

Ouch.

Feldman now claims he can’t even get out of bed because the performance was received so poorly, with so much hate thrown his way.

He added:

“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. We can’t get out of bed right now. We’re petrified to even go out … And I’m sorry, but we just wanted the world to know, like, we’re really freaked out over this and it’s really not fair.”

Yikes — that does sound serious.

For Courtney Anne’s part, she revealed that it has been hard for her to watch Corey struggle with such negative backlash after the performance:

“He was really down last night, just so you guys know. And, like, I don’t even know what to do or to say because I thought the performance was good and I was, like, excited about it.”

And Corey tried to sum it all up in vain, giving a nod to his fans even during what has proven to be an exceptionally difficult time in his professional career:

“All we can say is that we tried really hard. Because we love our fans and we just wanted to give them the best show that we could. But we don’t deserve … these things that are said about us are awful. 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.”

Well said.
