Hollywood's secret pedophile problem

Dylan Farrow accuses Woody Allen of sexual abuse when she was seven

Quote:
Woody Allen has responded to allegations made by Dylan Farrow, his adopted daughter with Mia Farrow, that he sexually assaulted her when she was 7.

"Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful. He will be responding very soon," a rep for Allen tells The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.

On Saturday, Farrow published an open letter on New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof's blog in which she detailed allegations of a sexual assault by the director:

"[W]hen I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house. He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me," she wrote.

Farrow also accused Hollywood of turning a "blind eye" to accusations against Allen. She called out the stars of Allen's Blue Jasmine, asking Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett and Louis C.K., "What if it had been your child?"

"Woody Allen was never convicted of any crime. That he got away with what he did to me haunted me as I grew up," she wrote, adding: "That torment was made worse by Hollywood. All but a precious few (my heroes) turned a blind eye. Most found it easier to accept the ambiguity, to say, 'who can say what happened,' to pretend that nothing was wrong. Actors praised him at awards shows. Networks put him on TV. Critics put him in magazines."

On Saturday night at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, Blanchett briefly addressed the allegations.

"It's obviously been a long and painful situation for the family and I hope they find some resolution and peace," she said. Allen, who was up for a Writers Guild Award for Blue Jasmine Saturday, did not attend the ceremony, but instead went to a New York Knicks game with wife Soon-Yi Previn, also an adopted daughter of Farrow.

Allen and Mia Farrow ended their relationship in 1992 after allegations of abuse surfaced. He was never convicted of a crime relating to the allegations. A court investigation did not find credible evidence of abuse.
Of course, his marrying his other adopted daughter wasn't significant enough to take Dylan's allegations seriously? Is it normal behavior for an adopted father to divorce a wife in the midst of a child sex abuse accusation to only wind up marrying another adopted daughter!? To me that sounds like credible enough evidence for investigators to have dug so much deeper into the accusation. Perhaps Mr. Allen' star status protected him from any further investigation and charges?

Anyways, from what i read here and there, issues of child sexual abuse in Hollywood is far worse than the American public actually knows. Swept under the rug it seems, as they continue to pontificate on the morality of a bankrupt America.

It has already hit home for me. Child sexual abuse did touch my sisters family. And for the longest time, our family refused to recognize any of the signs or to follow them up for a lack of proof, until my niece came out and told me the truth 13 years ago on a Thanksgiving family get together, that it had indeed occurred. That truth had rocked my world ever since. Her father not only abused her (ever since she was born), but also over two dozen other children over a period of time. And the kicker, i didn't pick up on the warning signs. I really liked him as a human being. I was a sucker!

I certainly don't want anyone to be falsely accused, but i've never been satisfied with this case, most especially in light of what happened to my dear niece up until she revealed the truth, her father having confirmed his sexual abuse and exploitation of her and numerous other children in a court of law. Fuck! Thinking about it makes me sick!!!!!
Thanks from waitingtables

Don't shoot me...I'm the messenger! I, for one, feel that if some real evidence can be substantiated...he should be castrated...and imprisoned. But please consider that going off "half cocked" with hearsay will only increase the possibility that real perpetrators will walk.

"See! My case is just like that Woody Allen lie..."

Nope...just my perception. I can remember back quite some way where some child-minders were accused...tried...and convicted in California of some heinous interactions with the kids they were supposed to look after in their day care facility. Guess what? They were eventually found to be completely innocent, released and exonerated. Guess what? That fact made it more difficult to corral the real perverts.

Ya just GOTTA have evidence for a crime, Panther.

Yes, i remember that. Fucked up shoddy police work and poorly trained child psychologists "leading" children too make false accusations where no crime existed. Most cases exposed as such, no longer hold up in a court of law. Proof, as you say is needed.

I don't see that having had happened here with Dylan, unless the argument is proved that Mia is putting her up to it.

But then, this is Hollywood, the titan of American culture. The A-listers seem nearly untouchable by the law and are extremely powerful in successfully fighting against claims of crimes committed from most comers, including accusations from persistent children as they grow into adulthood.

'What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?"

What if had been your child that was blamed???

This is a horrid situation. Still, where's the proof other than: "Yeah, Woody Allen's a pretty weird guy. So...yeah...he's capable of doing that."

Mia Farrow's pretty weird, too. "Just play along with Mommy and we'll get millions."

Reasonable Doubt will rule...
