Things have suddenly turned around for Corey Feldman after being trolled online for his TODAY Show performance. Several celebrities such as Pink and his Stand By Me co-star Jerry O’Connell gave the 45-year-old singer their full endorsements, and now Kesha’s got his back as well.

Kesha reached out to the former child actor by posting a heartfelt Instagram after learning about all the cyber-bullying going his way.
this just broke my heart. I wanna reach out to Corey Feldmen in a kind way and say that you have to not read that shit. people can be so horrible and mean online and it can BREAK you. do you, fuck everyone. those people have never performed on the today show. it’s easy to sit at a computer and talk shit. it’s not easy to perform in front of millions. keep your head up. normal is BORING.
Corey Feldman gave an unforgettable performance on the Today Show last Friday. Promoting the lead single “Go 4 It” off his fifth studio album Angelic 2 The Core, The Goonies star appeared in a tight black hoodie and was backed by ‘Corey’s Angels.’
The video instantly went viral, but not for the reason’s you’d think (and if you haven’t seen the video yet, you must do so first in order to read on). While Feldman and his angelic backing band gave it their all, their performance was met with heavy criticism. Viewers went online and gave their brutally honest opinions of the show which contained very few kind words.
The former child star posted a Facebook Live video alongside his “maingel” Courtney Anne in which he openly bawled at the criticism. And while the video has since been deleted, People reports he said the following:
“We just wanted to tell everybody that, like, it’s been really painful,” Feldman, said in tears. “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.”
“It was a song, okay? It wasn’t that weird,” the video continues.
“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.”
