Actor Kirk Cameron Says Hollywood Has Been ‘Evil’ and ‘Dark’ For a Long Time

“Growing Pains” star Kirk Cameron said the “dark,” “evil” and “twisted” revelations coming out about Hollywood have “been going on for a long time.”

The 53-year-old said as a child actor working in Hollywood he witnessed the “disturbing” behavior by those around him.

“So, the evil, the darkness, the twisted sickness of Hollywood has been going on for a long time,” Cameron told The Daily Wire. “I started acting when I was 9-years-old. I began ‘Growing Pains’ at 14-years-old. And I was suspicious that that stuff was going on behind the curtains even when I was working on ‘Growing Pains.’”

“And there were several young boys like us that he interacted with on a regular basis,” Cameron said. “So, it’s shocking. It’s sickening.”

Cameron worked on “Growing Pains” from 1985 to 1992 and also said he worked with the executive producer and showrunner, Steven Marshall. 

In 2010, Marshall was arrested and later convicted for possession and distribution of child pornography, The New York Post reported.

Cameron told The Daily Wire that he is thankful to his parents for keeping him safe in the “predatory environment,” saying that his mother “was on the set every day when I was a minor on ‘Growing Pains.'”  

“Thank God I got out of there unscathed in the 1980s. Those people who did this stuff to these kids are the same kind of people in the industry today. Still making twisted, sick, perverted material that’s hurting children today. And they need to be completely rooted out and replaced,” Cameron continued.
