It’s truly precious when Hollywood starts virtue signaling. It is endearing to see such a backstabbing industry come to the defense of one of their own. Especially when one known pervert defends another.
Woody Allen sounded off to BBC news yesterday regarding the Harvey Weinstein allegations:
“The whole Harvey Weinstein thing is very sad for everybody involved,” he added. “Tragic for the poor women that were involved, sad for Harvey that [his] life is so messed up.
“There’s no winners in that, it’s just very, very sad and tragic for those poor women that had to go through that.”
Allen also said that he hoped the investigation would lead to “some amelioration” but also said, “You also don’t want it to lead to a witch hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy in an office who winks at a woman is suddenly having to call a lawyer to defend himself. That’s not right either.”
“That’s not right, either”?! This, coming from the stellar example of nobility, Mr. Woody Allen. Good, ol’ warm-n-fuzzy-funny-guy, Woody Allen who molested his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow and married his other adopted daughter, Soon-Ye Previn. Who are we kidding? He molested her, too but then did the “right thing” and married her. Complete with a honeymoon to Dysfunction Junction.
This from Allen’s adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow:
“What’s your favorite Woody Allen movie? Before you answer, you should know: when I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house. He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me. He talked to me while he did it, whispering that I was a good girl, that this was our secret, promising that we’d go to Paris and I’d be a star in his movies. I remember staring at that toy train, focusing on it as it traveled in its circle around the attic. To this day, I find it difficult to look at toy trains.”-Dylan Farrow
