Alec Baldwin Criticizes Woody Allen Backlash

Alec Baldwin Woody Allen

Alec Baldwin has responded to the growing celebrity backlash against Woody Allen, stating that the filmmaker deserves better. Despite the fact that other actors who have worked with Allen have recently spoken out against the filmmaker, Baldwin insists that "the renunciation of him and his work [is] unfair and sad."

Allen's innocence has been the subject of debate over the years regarding the alleged molestation of his daughter Dylan Farrow in 1992, and in the midst of the Time's Up and #MeToo campaigns, scrutiny towards celebrities accused of sexual misconduct has been especially strong. In two separate tweets, Baldwin expounded on Allen's alleged history with sexual misconduct, stating that his rejection has no merits.

In his first tweet, Baldwin writes: "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." He then followed that tweet by asking if it's "possible to support survivors of pedophilia and sexual assault/abuse" while also believing that Allen is innocent.
