WoW... I suppose you wouldn't make a comment about the death of a friend of yours? People here seem to forget that the two Corey's knew each other. So, if anyone has a Right to make a comment about Haims' death, it would be Feldman.

Get over yourselves people... stop being so intemperate.

Another comment; remember that more people die from perscription drug ODs than they do illegal drugs in this country! RIP Corey, sorry you could not save yourself or that no one else could save you.

Addiction is a terrible thing, and its with you forever. Family and true friends are the ones who see the consciquences of this killer. I dont think he was blaming anyone for his addiction. Prescription medications are as bad a rec drugs maybe even worse. People hide behind "This is a prescription from the Doctor", so it must be alright. Good communication with your primary care physician is so important.

well this sucks. i wasn't a big fan or anything, but it's still tragic. i did, however, enjoy "the lost boys" a lot, but he didn't have a lead role in it, but still. anyway, according to this poll, everyone agrees that it was his best movie http://www.livecitizen.com/2010/03/favorite-corey-haim-movie/ but i guess it doesn't really count.

If you have to self-medicate, you're already dying! The only person to blame is the addict, he made the choice to do the drug, therefore he and only he, can get off the drug. He didn't need rehab to get addicted, so why does he need rehab to quit? I'm sure their were people around him with addictions, but he didn't take heed then. When you see a meth addict, do you not see the entire picture? Why would you want to look like that? Why would you want to behave as they do? Why would you want your friends and family to see you as such, and treat you like such? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out. Rehab is an excuse, not a cure! Get a clue people, if you are drug free - stay that way. If not, yo can expect us to be commenting on you in the very near future, without sympathy! DUH

Corey Haim was an AWESOME actor! He an Corey Feldman made some of the greatest movies in the 80's! It is tragic that he lost his life so young! Although most if not all of the people responding to this don't know either of the Corey's it is ashame to see people judging others that they don't even know. Corey Haim had his demons and was trying to face them and change. No matter how tumultuous the two Corey's friendship may have been through the years, they loved each other as brothers and truly grew up together. My thoughts and prayers go out to Corey Haim's mother and to Corey Feldman as he has suffered the loss of a brother and best friend.

And here comes Feldman the fame whore. Corey Haim's death is a tragedy, but it seems like if there's a chance Feldman's press release might be mentioned, or they may use a sound bite..BOOM..theres Corey Feldman. Where was he when his best buddy needed help? Offering it, THROUGH THE MEDIA! Seriously douchebag, do us all a favor and shut the f*ck up. RIP Haimster

Corey wasn't in the Brat Pack and was never in any John Hughes movies. He was in effect a lost boy. It's a sad loss just the same.

People need to put the blame where it belongs! The pharmaceutical companies provide the product, the dr. instructs the patient on how to take it. The patient takes more than he should. He od's, it's his fault. The crack dealer didn't tie the addict down and make him smoke, the addict went looking for the drug. No one shoved pills down Elvis's throat, Elvis did it himself. So did Anna Nicole. Rehabilitation my ass, if one didn't learn from the first stay, what's the purpose of continuing to return? Just like Charlie Sheen, he's filming while in rehab. How many times has Sheen been in rehab? Yet, he's still going! Why? Because he doesn't want to stop drinking and rehab obviously couldn't help him or he wouldn't be knocking at their door once again.

Feldman all over the cameras hell he probably called them and for sure he will be on Larry King Tonight or Tomorrow Night. Corey Haim was embarrased by Feldman completely.

Feldman is a no talent that we all wish would go away his act has grown very thin. Those glasses he is wearing were bought at the 7-11 for $11.95.
