Corey Feldman‘s explosive documentary, My Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys, which bravely dives into the sexual abuse he and best friend Corey Haim fell victim to as children growing up in the industry, is finally going to see the light of day. Directed by Brian Herzlinger, the documentary premieres on March 9, 2020, commemorative of the tenth anniversary of Haim’s death.
If the site was not working for you after signing in on Monday night at 8 p.m. PT/ 11 p.m. ET, you are not alone. And help is on the way. Heather Dawn May tweeted an update after there was technical difficulties. She said, “The company is working on it on their side and said to keep refreshing. Thank you so much for your patience.”
My Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys was set to premiere live via the streaming channel at www.MyTruthDoc.com, at 8 p.m. PT/ 11 p.m. ET, however, when it was time to sign in, all viewers were hit with an error 403 screen.
In My Truth, Feldman promises to finally name the alleged rapist of his late best friend, the person he claims molested him as a child, and an entire ring of alleged Hollywood pedophiles still working in the industry today. Due to the film’s highly controversial topic matter, almost every traditional network passed on My Truth, but that didn’t stop the former child star from self-funding the film to get it out to audiences.
However, technical delays seem to have stopped the premiere from taking place on Monday night, as viewers were unable to log into the streaming site at http://www.MyTruthDoc.com. At 10 p.m PT/ 1:00 a.m. PT, the film was still not playing.
Feldman seemed confident that the show would go on. He tweeted, “The film is starting 15 minutes late due 2 the website crashing! Which is actually a good thing! So #StayTuned.”
However, long after what would’ve been a 15-minute delay, everyone still had issues with signing in. While it appears that Feldman is at a movie theater somewhere in Los Angeles filled with people, the bulk of the people who bought tickets to the film were streaming the movie from home.
Only Those Attending The Live Screening Were Able To Screen The Documentary’s Premiere
Feldman also stopped the movie for the live audience, as well. Tim Chan tweeted that Feldman “wants to pause the screening until everyone has a chance to see it at the same time.” However, in the end, the actor did stream it for his live audience.
Chan tweeted at 10:20 p.m. PT: “We screened the whole film. Regardless of how you feel about Corey Feldman, the topics he’s bringing up in the documentary are important and worth paying attention to. Does the film offer clarity? Maybe. Will it change the industry? TBD. Off to bed, more thoughts to come.”
Hopeful Viewers Were Told ‘Hackers’ Are Involved In The Streaming Delay
While not everyone received this notice after a failed attempt to sign in, a bold message in red lettering popped up on the screen for many saying: “Please be patient. The hackers are trying to prevent the stream from airing. The program will begin momentarily. We appreciated your patience and support.”
According to Tim Chan, who’s at the live screening, tweeted that Feldman announced after the delay, “You’re seeing it for yourself how people don’t want this to happen.”
Online Users Are Either Getting An Error Screen Or A Black Page That Won’t Load
It appears there are numerous different issues happening for those who wanted to be a part of the first audience to watch My Life: The Rape of 2 Coreys. Hundreds of online users tweeted their frustrations directly at Feldman on Twitter. The site was not loading on either Chrome or Safari web browsers.
It’s a mixture of confusion and frustration, especially for those who’ve waited up late to watch the film. One user tweeted, “Some of us have been waiting since the 90’s to know the truth. Really hope Corey is able to get his message out – through whatever means necessary.”
Switching devices from computer to phone didn’t seem to work, nor did constant refreshing of the browser page. One person tweeted, “Was logged in, refreshed, took me back to main screen with purchase option but no login option. What gives?”
Another online user hoping to watch My Life on Monday night tweeted, “403-Access Forbidden should I be worried or is this going to be fixed in 20 minutes?”
Many potential viewers voiced the frustrations about what could possibly turn out to be a wasted $20 ticket. At around 10:26 p.m. PT, users online received a new notice that included an apology, and that “we will also send an email with more information.”
