As controversy continues to swirl around Woody Allen, he recently decided to take a break and enjoy a Knicks’ game. However, according to a Feb 2 report by TMZ, the star attempted to dodge questions by playing with his phone. Allen’s controversy started when Dylan Farrow penned an open letter describing the abuse she suffered at his hands. As soon as the story was published, it started a major debate about the rights of sexual abuse victims. Not surprisingly, Woody Allen has been under intense scrutiny since Farrow released the letter.

When Allen was attempting to leave the NBA game, a photographer was repeatedly asking him about the abuse allegations, and rather than addressing the questions, he pretended to play with his phone. However, at one point he is seen whispering to a family member as the photographer continued to hound him for information.

The controversy is unlikely to go away, and many social commentators believe that Allen will eventually be forced to address the issue.
