Dylan Farrow was unmoved by Scarlett Johansson's faith in Woody Allen, the Cut reports. The actress had said she believes Allen when he denies Farrow's accusation that he sexually abused her when she was 7. "Scarlett has a long way to go in understanding the issue she claims to champion," Farrow tweeted. Farrow is the daughter of actress Mia Farrow and Allen's stepdaughter. "Because if we’ve learned anything from the past two years it’s that you definitely should believe male predators who 'maintain their innocence’ without question."

In addition, Farrow was critical of Joy Behar, co-host of The View, over her explanation of the investigation of Farrow's accusation against Allen. Behar had said Allen was "exonerated by the experts," per the Wrap. Farrow tweeted Thursday: "Surprising that in discussing my case this morning no one mentioned that the prosecutor in my case, after evaluating ALL the evidence, found probable cause to press criminal charges against Woody. He chose not to only in order to spare me further trauma." (More Dylan Farrow stories.)
