Woody Allen’s Son Moses Comes to His Defense

In a lengthy blog post, Woody Allen and Mia Farrow’s adopted son, Moses Farrow, has come to the defense of his beleaguered father, who has been accused of sexual assault by sibling Dylan Farrow. Moses Farrow doubled down on claims made in previous interviews that his mother was physically abusive to him and her other children and that she coerced her daughter Dylan into accusing Allen of assault. “I’m a very private person and not at all interested in public attention,” Farrow wrote in the post titled “A Son Speaks Out,” “But, given the incredibly inaccurate and misleading attacks on my father, Woody Allen, I feel that I can no longer stay silent as he continues to be condemned for a crime he did not commit.” According to The Guardian, Dylan Farrow responded to her brother’s claims in a statement, saying they were “an attempt to deflect from a credible allegation made by an adult woman, by trying to impugn my mother, who has only ever been supportive of me and my siblings. It’s easily disproven, contradicts years of his own statements, is beyond hurtful to me personally, and is part of a larger effort to discredit and distract from my assault. My brother is a troubled person. I’m so sorry he’s doing this.”
