Woody Allen's daughter Dylan speaks against him

The actor-director Dylan Farrow talked about her stepdad Woody Allen and failing to understand why people supported him. She said that it is literally something that happened to her and who are those people to say, 'No, it didn't'. Farrow further stated that she was there and those people supporting Allen weren't. Explaining further, she said that it is crazy that for some people, the idea that she was brainwashed is somehow easier to swallow than child sexual abuse. To those who suggest Allen was perhaps an overly affectionate father, and nothing more, Farrow said 'let him watch your kid'. Dylan Farrow also shared what it meant to have her brother Ronan Farrow, who she described as one of the most important people in her life, publicly support her. She added that she got salty at Ronan because she thought do people really need a white man to say the exact same thing for them to listen.

Dylan went on to say that there are no support groups for people whose sisters marry their fathers.
