Woody Allen Addresses Cancel Culture and Denies Sexual Abuse Accusations

Share on:

Woody Allen, filmmaker, shared his thoughts on cancel culture and addressed the accusations of sexual abuse made against him by his adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow. Allen, present at the Venice Film Festival to debut his latest film “Coup de Chance,” referred to cancel culture as “silly” and stated that he does not think about it. He denied ever receiving complaints from the women he has worked with and emphasized his commitment to gender equality in the film industry.

Dylan Farrow first accused Allen of sexually abusing her in 1992 when she was seven years old. Farrow reiterated her allegations in 2014 during the Golden Globes, and they were further explored in the HBO documentary “Allen v. Farrow.” Allen has consistently denied the accusations, claiming that Mia Farrow coached Dylan to make the claims after learning about his relationship with Soon-Yi Previn, whom Allen married in 1997.

Allen mentioned that two major investigative bodies have examined the allegations and concluded that there was no merit to them. He expressed his willingness to see Dylan and her brother, Ronan Farrow, but stated that he has not been in contact with them. Allen also criticized the #MeToo movement, describing it as “silly” and “foolish” when it goes beyond addressing genuine issues of unfairness towards women.
