Alec Baldwin Defends Woody Allen Against Sexual Misconduct Allegations, ‘Unfair and Sad’

Alec Baldwin is in the hot seat for defending disgraced filmmaker Woody Allen, who has been accused of sexual abuse by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow.

Allen has denied the accusations.

The Alec Baldwin Foundation released a statement earlier on Twitter, saying:

The move comes after a host of actors who previously worked with Allen began publicly distancing themselves after Dylan Farrow wrote an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times questioning as to why Allen still receives support in light of the #MeToo campaign.

Actor Timothee Chalamet has even promised to donate his entire salary from recent Allen film A Rainy Day in New York to charity, in wake of these renewed accusations.

With the current social climate being more aware of sexual misconduct than ever before, it comes as no surprise that social media heavily criticized Baldwin for his statements.

Some users claimed that it was typical “Hollywood logic” to assume that having a personal positive experience with a person reflects their character:

Whilst a freelance writer named Lauren Modery recounted in a series of tweets that she once worked with Alec and his comments did not come as a surprise to her as he was “a complete dick.”

One user even noted the hypocrisy of Baldwin defending Allen while directly profiteering off of criticizing President Trump’s alleged “misogyny” by selling a parody book on Amazon for $14.50:

This isn’t the first time Baldwin has caused controversy. Last November he was accused of victim blaming after discussing Harvey Weinstein in an interview with PBS Newshour, stating:

“You heard the rumor that [Weinstein] raped Rose McGowan. We’ve heard that for decades and nothing was done. What happened was Rose McGowan took a payment of $100,000 and settled her case with him. It was for Rose McGowan to prosecute that case.”

The backlash Baldwin received had caused him to temporarily deactivate his Twitter account and later backtrack on his comments, clarifying that it was “never my intention to blame the victim.”

It might be best for Baldwin to not check his Twitter notifications for the time being.
