Woody Allen Says Dylan Farrow Is Lying About Being Molested

This weekend, Dylan Farrow spoke out for the first time on the decades-old allegations that she was molested as a child by Woody Allen during his relationship with her adopted mother, Mia Farrow. In a piece for the New York Times, Dylan detailed her repeated sexual abuses by Allen and confirmed once and for all that she’s never forgotten what happened to her – and how quick the world is to discount her experiences and lavish Allen in praise.

Of course, Allen isn’t taking such strong accusations lying down! He’s… putting out a statement via his spokesperson about how untrue it all is and saying that Dylan was brainwashed by Mia. Uh… wow.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

“Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful. He will be responding very soon.”

And his lawyers said the following:

“It is tragic that after 20 years a story engineered by a vengeful lover resurfaces after it was fully vetted and rejected by independent authorities. The one to blame for Dylan’s distress is neither Dylan nor Woody Allen.”

“He’ll be responding soon”? It’s hilarious to me that one needs time to carefully create a response to such horrendous allegations if they weren’t true. Wouldn’t immediate and vehement denial be more in order?

Listen, Woody Allen is a pervert and a child molester. I don’t care what you think of his movies, what a great artist he is, whatever the fuck. He molested children, and he used his relationship with his “she’s not really my daughter” daughter Soon-Yi to cover up the fact that he was abusing Dylan. How all of that could ever fly, I’ll never understand. It’s mindblowing that we can discount the experience of a sexual assault victim for the sake of “good art”. Fuck that.

Sure, Allen will never go to jail or really be forced to pay for his crimes, but I think it’s time we all stop pretending that just because this asshole was quirky enough to make Annie Hall that somehow excuses his horrific abuses.

  • Best post ever. Not the topic, of course, but rather your calling out a scumbag monster for being a scumbag monster. I did love his films, but I won’t watch them every again, anymore. As I grow older, I do not separate the art from the artist when said artist commits heinous crimes.

    And those practiced at the art of distraction (re: the guy who wrote the Daily Beast article on this case) don’t fool me anymore. I won’t be distracted.

  • TOO RIGHT!! Great post. He’s a dirty, perverted little man and all these sycophantic “actors” should stop blowing smoke up his a*se and call him out for what he. Why on earth is he walking around free????

    • I thought the same when I saw the photos of her as a child with Allen. She looks uncomfortable in every one of them, like she can’t wait for him to put her down.

  • The same sycophants reckon it is ok for Roman Polanski to have sex with a 13 year old.
    Woody runs to form. Involved with the child like waif Mia Farrow, meanwhile preying on their daughters.
    Now he and his lawyers have to ‘think’ about his answer. If nervous of a guilty assumption, how about “sorry” for starters.? Even if it was only an apology for conducting an affair with Dylans sister, another daughter, under their roof
    As Dylan intimates, she worries for other little girls he has come in contact with, are at risk.
    I wonder what big sister Soon Yi will say when eventually able to speak freely. I guess she loved being made special, in a ‘secret’ with her Dad, all of those years ago. Its called grooming the child for ones own use.
    How dare Woody condemn their Mother for protecting their daughters from what he has admitted with Soon Yi. Dylan is so brave.
    Meanwhile Hollywood Power protects two talented but awful weedy despicable little men. Makes one shudder.

  • Just another example of the law being OK for the “little people”, but not to be applied to the liberal intelligentsia like Hollywood film industry titans, entertainers, politicians, etc., because we don’t understand what these delicate flowers go through for the artistic and political process.
