Corey Feldman: Okay, Michael Jackson Might've Molested Those Kids

by at .

As you've no doubt heard by now, the documentary Leaving Neverland premiered to tremendous controversy this week.

While the surviving members of Michael Jackson's family have derided the film as a "public lynching," many viewers have reported that Neverland left them with little doubt that the pop star molested numerous children throughout his life.

The documentary focuses on two of Jackson's many accusers, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, both of whom are now grown men, and both of whom were granted the opportunity to tell their stories as never before.

But while Neverland focuses primarily on the appalling accounts offered by Robson and Safechuck, for many, it also raises unsettling questions about the other children who crossed paths with Jackson at the height of his fame.

There are Jackson's own children, of course.

Two of them have kept quiet in the wake of Neverland, while the singer's 20-year-old daughter Paris has vocally defended her father and continues to maintain that Michael is 100 percent innocent of all charges.

Then there are the Culkin brothers -- Macaulay and Kieran -- both of whom, by Jackson's own admission. shared a bed with the singer while they were still young children.

And, of course, there's Corey Feldman, the 1980s child star who befriended Jackson in his youth and has vocally defended him ever since.

On Thursday, Feldman spoke out for the first time about the revelations contained in Leaving Neverland.

And to the surprise of many, the 47-year-old stated that he feels he can "no longer defend" Jackson.

"I don’t want to be perceived as I’m here to defend Michael Jackson, because I can no longer do that," Feldman said in an interview with HLN.

"I can not in good consciousness defend anyone who’s being accused of such horrendous crimes."

Feldman went on to reiterate that he was never abused by Jackson, stating:

“I’m also not here to judge him, because again, he did not do those things to me and that was not my experience."

Corey Feldman: Peace!

Despite his repeated claim that his own experience with Jackson was purely wholesome, Feldman's refusal to continue defending the singer speaks volumes about the impact of Leaving Neverland.

Jackson's music has already been pulled from Canadian radio stations, and many expect US stations to follow suit.

Some say it's unfair to condemn a man who's no longer alive to defend himself.

But it is justice for Jackson's alleged victims, not Jackson himself, that must take precedence.
