Why didn't celebrities reach out to Corey Haim?
During the past week, I’ve seen celebrities paying their respects to actor Corey Haim this week on entertainment news shows, at movie premieres and on their Twitter and Facebook pages.
Haim, 38, died March 10 at his mother’s California apartment. His private funeral was held March 16.
Haim’s best friend and frequent acting partner Corey Feldman said something interesting to Larry King during a recent interview.
“At the end of the day, where were all these people the last 10 years, the last 15 years of Corey’s life? Where were all these people to lend a hand–to reach out to him and say, ‘You know, you’re a legend. You’re an amazingly talented, wonderful person who’s really never gone out of his way to hurt anybody other than himself?’”
Feldman makes a good point. If all of these celebrities loved Haim and were friends with him, then why didn’t anyone try to lend a helping hand during the past 15 years when his life spiraled out of control due to drug use?
It doesn’t do any good to reach out to him while he’s dead.
The same thing can be said about Michael Jackson. Celebrities distanced themselves from Jackson during the past 15 years while his life spiraled out of control with prescription drug abuse among other behaviors.
