Appearing on Larry King Live to talk about the death of his best friend, Corey Haim, fellow actor Corey Feldman delivered a challenge worth keeping in mind:
“I think that we all need to grow up, and we need to think about every time we laugh at somebody in the tabloids, or poke a finger at somebody, and say ‘They’re a joke,’ or ‘They’re fat,’ or ‘They’re a drug addict,’ or ‘They’re washed up,’ or ‘They’re a loser,’ we need to look ourselves and say, ‘Who am I?’”
Feldman also blasted some of his entertainment colleagues who made heartwarming statements about the loss of Haim, asking where they had been in Haim’s life for the last ten or fifteen years.
We rarely take the time to tell people we value exactly how valued they are. That’s a shame.
