Dylan Farrow Calls Out Justin Timberlake for Supporting Time's Up, Yet Working With Woody Allen


Dylan, who claims Woody molested her when she was a child, accuses the 'Filthy' singer of being a hypocrite for supporting the Time's Up movement after working with the filmmaker.
Justin Timberlake is the latest celebrity who has been criticized for not distancing himself from Woody Allen amid the resurfacing sexual abuse allegations against the director. In 1992, Woody's adopted daughter Dylan Farrow accused him of molesting her when she was 7. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, Dylan was recently interviewed by Gayle King on "CBS This Morning" about the harrowing ordeal.

Meanwhile, Justin, who has shown his support for the Time's Up movement by wearing the pin at the Golden Globes, starred in 2017's "Wonder Wheel" directed by Woody. Dylan saw a chance to slam the singer when he tweeted on Tuesday, January 23, "Random question: Can someone please explain the saying, 'You just want your cake and to eat it too.' What else am I about to do with a cake??"

Schooling the "SexyBack" hitmaker, Dylan replied to the innocent question, "The saying means, for example, you can't support [Time's Up] and praise sexual predators at the same time. You can't retain your credibility as an activist (i.e. - retain the cake) and, at the same time, praise a sexual predator (i.e. - eating the cake)."



Selena Gomez has also been under fire for deciding to work with Woody on his upcoming film "A Rainy Day in New York". "Make Selena write an apology about the woddy Allen film [sic]," someone wrote on Selena's mom Mandy Teefey's Instagram account.

Mandy replied, "Sorry no one can make Selena do anything she doesn't want to. I had a long talk with her about not talking with him and it didn't click. There is no fall person here. No one controls her. She makes all her own decisions. No matter how hard you try to advise. It falls on deaf ears."

Meanwhile, Gomez's "A Rainy Day in New York" co-stars Rebecca Hall and Timothee Chalamet have apologized for working with Allen. Chalamet even pledged to donate the salary he received from working on the film to three charities which include Time's Up, the LGBT Center in New York and RAINN, an anti-sexual violence organization.

In the interview with Gayle King, Dylan detailed her claims. "He instructed me to lay down on my stomach and play with my brother's toy train that was set up. He sat behind me in the doorway, and as I played with the toy train, I was sexually assaulted," she said.

Woody has repeatedly denied the allegations. After the interview, he released a statement which read, "When this claim was first made more than 25 years ago, it was thoroughly investigated by both the Child Sexual Abuse Clinic of the Yale-New Haven Hospital and New York State Child Welfare. They both did so for many months and independently concluded that no molestation had ever taken place. Instead, they found it likely a vulnerable child had been coached to tell the story by her angry mother during a contentious breakup."
