    Ronan Farrow, writing for The Hollywood Reporter, about his father, Woody Allen:

    But the old-school media’s slow evolution has helped to create a culture of impunity and silence. Amazon paid millions to work with Woody Allen, bankrolling a new series and film. Actors, including some I admire greatly, continue to line up to star in his movies. “It’s not personal,” one once told me. But it hurts my sister every time one of her heroes like Louis C.K., or a star her age, like Miley Cyrus, works with Woody Allen. Personal is exactly what it is — for my sister, and for women everywhere with allegations of sexual assault that have never been vindicated by a conviction.

    I made a thread in Entertainment about it that isn't really picking up steam. It's interesting to question why he isn't called out more, why so many people dismiss the allegations and why so many movie stars still choose to work with him. It's unbelievable

    It's interesting he mentions Louis C.K. I've read sketchy stories about him last year, and I can't watch his show since then.

    I detest Woody Allen - arrogant, awful human being. Oh & now I've learned Louis CK sucks too.
