Jamie Lee Curtis Ignores Feldman in Call Against Child Abuse in Hollywood

Jamie Lee Curtis Ignores Feldman in Call Against Child Abuse in Hollywood
Jamie Lee Curtis wrote an essay for the Huffington Post applauding actress Eliza Dushku for coming forward to say that she had been sexually assaulted as a child while working on James Cameron's True Lies. However, in Curtis' call against child abuse in Hollywood, she spoke as though she was the first to come out for the cause, and failed to mention that Corey Feldman has been publicly campaigning for child abuse awareness in the entertainment industry for years, especially in the past couple of months.

Dushku alleged that she was sexually assaulted by famed stunt coordinator Joel Kramer at the age of 12, bringing new awareness to the pedophile problem that is rampant in Hollywood. Joel Kramer has since been let go from his agency Worldwide Industry, and new attention is being placed on the cause. But in speaking out, Curtis completely ignores the work that Feldman has been doing recently.
