Mia Farrow and Son Ronan ‘Twitter Slam’ Woody AllenBy: Mike Tuttle - January 13, 2014
Last night on the Golden Globe Awards, Woody Allen received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for a lifetime of critically acclaimed movies. The award is an honorary Golden Globe bestowed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.”
On Sunday evening at the 71st annual Golden Globes, Allen’s award was accepted by Annie Hall actress Diane Keeton.
However, almost immediately after the award was presented, online feeds buzzed when Ronan Farrow, son of Mia Farrow, began to slam the 78-year old actor and director via Twitter.
In the early 1980s, Allen had a 12-year relationship with Mia Farrow which ended in 1992 when Allen had an affair with Mia and Andrew Previn’s adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn, who was 20-years old at the time. Eventually he and Soon-Yi married.
Later, Mia accused Allen of sexually molesting their adopted daughter, Dylan, who was 7-years old at the time. The sex abuse charges were found inconclusive by a judge, but Farrow won custody of the children.
It was first said that Ronan was the biological child of Mia and Allen, but in an interview in 2013, she said that Ronan could “possibly” be the child of her first husband, Frank Sinatra, with whom she “never really split up.”
Ronan’s tweet on Sunday was praised by many, who said he was standing up for sexual abuse survivors.
But Ronan wasn’t the only one who took to the social network to express their opinion about Allen.
Mia tweeted a response herself this morning.
About an hour later, she added:
According to E Online, Allen continues to deny any allegations of sexual abuse.
Allen and Soon-Yi Previn are still married and have two adopted daughters.
