Alec Baldwin brands Dylan Farrow a liar in defence of Woody Allen

Woody Allen’s latest film starring Timothee Chalamet — who has distanced himself from the actor — may never be released

Alec Baldwin took to Twitter on Sunday to continue to defend Woody Allen against Dylan Farrow's sexual assault accusations, comparing her "persistence of emotion" to the character of Mayella from To Kill A Mockingbird, who accuses a black man of rape with no substantial evidence.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Sunday, Dylan Farrow said that Baldwin's tweets were dismissive of Justice Wilk's decision and Prosecutor Frank Maco's comments. In the past few months, actors who have worked with Allen in both the recent and distant past like Greta Gerwig, Timothée Chalamet, and Rebecca Hall have distanced themselves from the director and expressed regret over their collaborations.

Farrow first spoke publicly about Allen's alleged abuse in Vanity Fair and the New York Times, writing about events she says occurred when she was seven years old. "But I need more than that before I destroy some1, regardless of their fame.I need a lot more (sic)".

In To Kill a Mockingbird, Mayella attempts to initiate an affair with a Black man named Tom Robinson, and when he refuses her advances, Mayella and her father lie in court and claim Robinson attempted to rape her. Baldwin, disregarding the racial connotations that flow throughout To Kill a Mockingbird, made a decision to use Mayella as a convenient comparison to Farrow, who he said portrays an "arsenal" of "persistence of emotion" in publicly condemning Allen. "But it does make the betrayal and the".

The 17-year-old leg-break googly bowler, who will represent Delhi Daredevils , said he was "not surprised" at his selection. He further got an opportunity to get trained in the Michael Clarke's academy run by the Australian skipper Michael Clarke.

Baldwin followed that tweeted shortly after with: "To say that @RealDylanFarrow is telling the truth is to say that (brother) @MosesFarrow is lying".

During the fallout of the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal, Farrow penned an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times, asking, "Why is it that Harvey Weinstein and other accused celebrities have been cast out by Hollywood, while Allen recently secured a multimillion-dollar distribution deal with Amazon, greenlit by former Amazon Studios executive Roy Price before he was suspended over sexual misconduct allegations?"

Baldwin concluded with 'If my defense of Woody Allen offends you, it's real simple. But, he doesn't even want an innocent to be believed as one. I hope that every perpetrator of sexual assault is caught and punished. Allen has always maintained his innocence and said the story of abuse was ingrained in Dylan's mind by his ex-wife, Mia Farrow. In 2014, the charges were reiterated.

Allegations against Allen again resurfaced due to the #MeToo movement and theTime's Up initiative.
