If people weren’t miffed enough when Woody Allen didn’t show up to accept the most prestigious award at the Jan. 12 Golden Globes, they were definitely riled up by Mia and Ronan Farrow’s brutally honest tweets about Woody’s sordid sexual history.
Woody Allen was a no-show when he received the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes on Jan. 12, but even the unique charms of his stand-in Diane Keaton weren’t enough to distract some of Woody’s dissenters from his much-maligned sexual past. Those dissenters, by the way, were Woody’s estranged ex Mia Farrow and the couple’s (probable) son, Ronan Farrow. Check out Mia and Ronan’s shockingly scathing Tweets below!
Ronan Farrow Tweets About Woody Allen Sexual Abuse Claims
Now, don’t get me wrong. Annie Hall is a great film; one of Allen’s many. But Woody’s “son” (Mia recently said that Ronan might actually belong to Frank Sinatra) Ronan’s rage is justified — the woman he is referring to is his adopted sister Dylan, who publicly alleged that Woody molested her as a child.
Missed the Woody Allen tribute – did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?

Harsh words indeed, but Ronan then backed up his outrage by posting a link to the Vanity Fair profile that details the family’s shocking history with its former patriarch.
Mia Farrow Disses Woody’s Golden Globe Win
Of course, Mia — who dealt with not only the molestation charges from her daughter Dylan, but also the embarrassment that accompanied Woody marrying her other adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn — also got a jab in at her long-time ex.
“Time to grab some icecream & switch over to #GIRLS,” she wrote as Woody took the stage. She then followed up with another Tweet, simply saying “Nite all.”
Mia also retweeted her son’s remarks, and added her own two cents about Woody’s big win:
A woman has publicly detailed Woody Allen’s molestation of her at age 7. GoldenGlobe tribute showed contempt for her & all abuse survivors

Drop that mic, Farrow fam. You’ve earned it.
