Child abuse in Hollywood

It’s a subject no one wants to talk about. Parents don’t want to think their children are at risk, but the less they are willing to confront it, the more likely it’s going to happen again and again.  This week both Elijah Wood and Corey Feldman are in the news talking about abuse. Wood says he never faced it and doesn’t know names. Feldman knows names but won’t reveal them for fear of being sued. At least he’s honest. Whistle blowers have reportedly been criticized, smeared and threatened.  For more on child abuse in the TV and film industry, read the articles:
