Woody Allen slammed by son for sex abuse after Golden Globe win; Mia agrees

Woody Allen's estranged son Ronan Farrow slammed him on social media Sunday night during Diane Keaton's acceptance of Woody's Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award. Allen's son Ronan wrote on Twitter and Facebook, "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?", according to the Daily News on Jan. 13.

Ronan Farrow was referring to allegations by his adopted sister Dylan Farrow, who has claimed that the acclaimed director molested her at age 7. Their mother Mia soon after retweeted his comments and added some of her own.

Woody Allen allegedly touched his adopted daughter Dylan inappropriately when she was a child, but he denied the accusations previously via his attorney, according to TMZ.

Ronan's other adopted sister, Soon-Yi Previn, 43, is currently married to the 78-year-old Allen. His mother Mia Farrow bitterly split from Woody after she learned he was having an affair with her adopted daughter.

Mia also chimed in following Ronan's Sunday night slam, reinforcing her son by retweeting his remark, and then saying she was switching TV channels.

Mia, 68, gave a head-turning interview to Vanity Fair last October in which she detailed her life with Woody. Farrow even suggested 26-year-old Ronan was fathered by Frank Sinatra during her 12-year affair with the crooner.

That set off a media firestorm, as there's no question the blue-eyed soon to be MSNBC host bares a striking resemblance to Sinatra.

This morning Mia took another shot at her ex by tweeting, "A woman has publicly detailed Woody Allen's molestation of her at age 7. GoldenGlobe tribute showed contempt for her & all abuse survivors".

Adding to the bizarre nature of this story was Keaton's acceptance speech last night. After detailing her 45-year friendship with Woody, the 68-year-old actress ended by singing an a capella rendition of the Girl Scouts song "Make New Friends".

Allen has long been known to avoid attending awards shows throughout his career. So far there's been no comment from his camp.
