Is Dylan Farrow Lying About Being Raped?
Alec Baldwin certainly thinks so, and he doesn’t stifle his opinion one bit. In fact, he compares Dylan Farrow to a character in “To Kill a Mockingbird” who lied about being raped.
Dylan Farrow, the adopted daughter of Woody Allen has been consistently accusing him of sexual abuse. Baldwin took it a notch higher on Sunday as he continued to defend Allen.
Previously Baldwin said the accusations were “unfair and sad.” But on Sunday, he called Dylan a liar by comparing her to Mayella Ewell, the character in the classic “To Kill a Mockingbird,” who falsely accuses an African American man of rape.
Baldwin tweeted, “[One] of the most effective things Dylan Farrow has in her arsenal is the ‘persistence of emotion,'” Baldwin tweeted. “Like Mayella in [“To Kill a Mockingbird”], her tears/exhortations [are] meant [to] shame u [into] belief in her story. But I need more than that before I destroy [someone], regardless of their fame. I need a lot more.”
He followed up with a second tweet, “To say that @RealDylanFarrow is telling the truth is to say that (brother) @MosesFarrow is lying. Which of Mia’s kids got the honesty gene and which did not?”
Dylan’s brother, Moses Farrow say the rape allegations are not true. Also, Allen has blamed Mia Farrow for imbedding the abuse idea into Dylan’s mind. He maintains his innocense.
Baldwin praised the director last week.
“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 with WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career,” Baldwin wrote.
“Is it possible to support survivors of pedophilia and sexual assault/abuse and also believe that WA is innocent? I think so,” Baldwin tweeted. “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.”
