Ronan Farrow rips the media, Miley Cyrus, Louis C.K. and others in 'blistering essay' on Woody Allen

Whoa.

Ronan Farrow took to the pages of the Hollywood Reporter and unleashed a “blistering essay” that takes on Woody Allen over his alleged abuse of Ronan’s sister, Dylan, as well as actors and the press for ignoring the allegations as Allen promotes his new film and TV projects.

Farrow even called out the actors who continue to work with Allen, including Miley Cyrus, Louis C.K., Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Steve Carell and Jesse Eisenberg.

An excerpt:

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.

Tonight, the Cannes Film Festival kicks off with a new Woody Allen film. There will be press conferences and a red-carpet walk by my father and his wife (my sister). He’ll have his stars at his side — Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Jesse Eisenberg. They can trust that the press won’t ask them the tough questions. It’s not the time, it’s not the place, it’s just not done.

That kind of silence isn’t just wrong. It’s dangerous. It sends a message to victims that it’s not worth the anguish of coming forward. It sends a message about who we are as a society, what we’ll overlook, who we’ll ignore, who matters and who doesn’t.

We are witnessing a sea change in how we talk about sexual assault and abuse. But there is more work to do to build a culture where women like my sister are no longer treated as if they are invisible. It’s time to ask some hard questions.
