NEW YORK–  It left many scratching their heads.

Corey Feldman performed his new song “Go 4 It” on the “Today” show Friday morning.

The actor, known for 1980s movies like “The Lost Boys” and “Stand By Me,” showed off some interesting dance moves. He was accompanied by “Corey’s Angels.” It was all to promote his album “Angelic 2 the Core,” which is dedicated to Michael Jackson and Corey Haim.

The performance has gone viral, but Feldman is upset with the criticism. He took to Facebook Live with one of his “angels” to explain. The video has since been deleted.

People Magazine reported Feldman was crying in the clip as he described the bullying.

“We can’t get out of bed right now,” Feldman said. “We’re petrified to even go out … And I’m sorry, but we just wanted the world to know, like, we’re really freaked out over this and it’s really not fair.”

He said he’s afraid to go out in public again.

“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 OK to bash Corey Feldman and the Angels.”
