Corey Feldman and the Angels have not had a great week. Since a semi-disastrous performance Friday on the Today Show, in which Feldman gathered a crew of young women dressed as actual angels (with the distinct intention of helping girls who "are kind of lost and needing to find their way"), the performance has gone viral.
Feldman was none too happy with the public's brutal response—which has ranged from condescending to patronizing—and openly sobbed in a Facebook Live video (which he's since deleted), begging the public to stop mocking him.
Feldman calls the days since his performance "really painful," according to a partial transcript of the video published by People.
"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," he said. "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," Feldman added.
He then mentioned that he and the band "can't get out of bed right now," and that they're "petrified to even go out."
