SHAMEFUL! Woody Allen DEFENDS Harvey Weinstein!



Infamous Hollywood pervert, Woody Allen, is now defending his old buddy Harvey Weinstein, and labeled the scandal a “witch hunt.”
Allen, who married his adopted daughter, is calling the Weinstein scandal “sad,” not so much for the victims, but for Harvey himself.
The accusations against Weinstein publicly exposed rampant perversion, abuse, and degeneracy in Hollywood, and the entertainment industry has been in an uproar ever since.
Woody Allen has defended Harvery Weinstein over dozens of allegations of sexual abuse and rape, describing the situation as ‘sad’.
The director, who worked with Weinstein a number of times, said he was upset ‘for everyone involved’ and lamented the fact that Weinstein’s life ‘is so messed up.’
While he hoped the investigation into alleged abuse would provide some respite to victims, he added that he worries about a witch hunt against men.
He told BBC Arabic: ‘The whole Harvey Weinstein thing is very sad for everybody involved.
‘Tragic for the poor women that were involved, sad for Harvey that is life is so messed up. There’s no winners in that, it’s just very, very sad and tragic for those poor women that had to go through that.’
He hoped the victims can find ‘some amelioration’ now the allegations have come to light, but added: ‘You also don’t want it to lead to a witch hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy in an office who winks at a woman is suddenly having to call a lawyer to defend himself. That’s not right either.’
Weinstein was credited with reviving Allen’s career after he was accused of abusing Dylan Farrow, the daughter he adopted with then-wife Mia, when she was seven.
The claims emerged in 1993 after Farrow split with Allen, having discovered he was having an affair with her adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.
An investigation was launched but later dropped with no charges made against Allen. He has always vehemently denied the claims.
Dylan repeated the claims in a 2014 blog post, and was supported by brother Ronan Farrow who also criticized the media for not questioning Allen more closely.
Ronan was also instrumental in bringing the allegations against Weinstein to light, interviewing 13 women who alleged he had harassed or attacked them.
Allen and Weinstein collaborated several times over the years, including on the Oscar-winning film Mighty Aphrodite.
