The news of Woody Allen’s upcoming memoir was met with outrage from the daughter who accuses him of molesting her.
Dylan Farrow called the decision “deeply upsetting to me personally” and questioned why fact-checkers for Apropos of Nothing never contacted her, while her own allegations of molestation have been constantly scrutinized.
Her statement on Twitter also described the move as an “utter betrayal” of her brother Ronan Farrow, whose Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators was published by the same company releasing Allen’s book.
Ronan Farrow also took to Twitter to share his frustration with Hachette Book Group for its secrecy in publishing Allen’s book and to demand that it be fact-checked.
Allen has denied molesting Dylan Farrow, and no charges have been filed, though the allegations did play a role in the split between Dylan’s mother, Mia Farrow, and Allen, according to CBS.
They also have seemed to stall his filmmaking career and, for a time, to block the publication of Apropos of Nothing, which comes out April 7.
