Alec Baldwin Defends Woody Allen: 'It's Unfair & Sad to Me'

Alec Baldwin sent out a series of tweets on Tuesday (January 16), where he defends Woody Allen against those saying they’ll no longer work with him due to sexual assault allegations made against him by Dylan Farrow.

Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states (NY and CT) and no charges were filed. The renunciation of him and his work, no doubt, has some purpose. But it’s unfair and sad to me. I worked w WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career,” Alec tweeted this morning.

He later followed up, writing, “Is it possible to support survivors of pedophilia and sexual assault/abuse and also believe that WA is innocent? I think so. The intention is not to dismiss or ignore such complaints. But accusing ppl of such crimes should be treated carefully. On behalf of the victims, as well.”

In the recent weeks, Timothee Chalamet, Greta Gerwig, Rebecca Hall and more have all vowed to never work with Allen again.

    What is unfair and sad is your face. And the fact that you still have a career.

    There are several different reasons why people who have suffered sexual abuse don’t come forward and one of them is that these things can be terribly difficult to prove. Emotional scars aren’t enough to give someone a guilty verdict. And seeing as the percentage of false accusations on sexual abuse is as low as it actually is, it’s unlikely that Dylan is lying.

    While nothing has been proven, there is something to be said about being a certain age and falling for someone you knew since they were a child and saw them grow up which would be enough at least for me to think he’s gross.

    the only reason alec is saying this now is because he knows he’s next…just watch in the upcoming weeks, my friends…

  • Vanity

    So his own daughter claims he sexually abused her, he married the adopted daughter he raised & we should just disregard that according to Baldwin, but we should all condemn Weinstein/Spacey & so many others because they weren’t officially prosecuted?

    this moron makes no sense.

    Alec Baldwin is a blowhard asshat.

    Dylan already said that they didn’t bring it to court and press charges because they didn’t want to put her through any more trauma. it was a different time then. they still sometimes do that to the victims. that doesn’t mean Woody Allen was innocent. Big difference.

  • wearing

    I’ve heard rumblings that the step-daughter/wife is slightly not all there in the head, which makes it even more sad.

  • MS

    Unfair and sad is exactly what this is, for Woody Allen and real victims of pedophilia and sexual assault/abuse everywhere.

    This is very disconcerting! The #MeToo #TimesUp movement should not be used as a weapon or a witch hunt.

    It’s important to see another side of this story before crucifying the man publicly.

    “Woody Allen wasn’t tried and found “not guilty,” nor was he exonerated by way of some obscure legal loophole. Rather, two separate, thorough investigations, conducted by highly-regarded teams of professionals, whose job it is to determine whether there is credible evidence to charge someone of a crime, concluded that the incident never happened. Your father was never tried for any crime, because no charges were ever brought against him.”

    It’s good to see that there are still people in HW who aren’t afraid of these witch hunters. Moses Farrow has no reason to lie. He was there that day and said it didn’t happen. I hope Mia rots in hell. That psycho bitch is the only person who abused Dylan Farrow.
