Woody Allen's Daughter Calls Out Hollywood Hypocrites By Name

Woody Allen's Daughter Calls Out Hollywood Hypocrites By Name

"I thought it would make a difference", she wrote. There were the interviewers who were wholly unprepared to be talking about these issues. And there were the stars whose continued work alongside alleged abusers made their black outfits or their Time's Up pins laughably hypocritical.

Dylan reflected on how she made the decision to publish the letter following Allen being awarded the Cecil B. DeMille accolade for lifetime achievement "detailing the abuse [she] sustained at the hands of Woody Allen".

Overnight, Farrow also Tweeted at Blake Lively, who is one of the organisers of Time's Up!

Unfortunately, Lively is part of a large club here-one that was in full display at the Golden Globes.

It has no leadership and members include Meryl Streep, Ashley Judd, Eva Longoria, America Ferrera, Natalie Portman, Rashida Jones, Emma Stone, Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon. Even in the height of the #MeToo movement, Allen released a film starring Kate Winslet and Justin Timberlake and finished production on another movie starring Selena Gomez, Elle Fanning, and Timothée Chalamet.

What do you think about Justin Timberlake's involvement with Time's Up?

Dylan Farrow was already completely over all this guarded posturing.

Farrow first accused Allen of sexually molesting her in 1992, when she was 7 years old.

And yet Woody Allen remains unscathed. The Hollywood celebrities, she claimed, were complicit in ignoring the sexual assault allegations against the renowned director.

'Today, four years later, it is Globes Sunday again and many, if not most, will be wearing black on the red carpet in solidarity with the movement. We can no longer let these men represent us in entertainment, politics, or any other realm. "That is an admirable and worthwhile objective, I hope these women change the world", Farrow said.

She also specifically called out some of those actors who don't just refuse to denounce Allen, but continue to actively praise him. "And my experience with Woody is he's empowering to women".

"I haven't gone through his personal journals and I knew that... shocked the people that work with this man #ambition is [blind]", she wrote on Twitter.

Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse.
