Dylan Farrow published an open letter in the New York Times, accusing her adoptive father, Woody Allen, of sexually abusing her when she was a child. Allen repeatedly denied the allegations. After Farrow's letter came Allen's op-ed in response, and then Farrow's point-by-point rebuttal to Allen's response.
This tennis match of a scandal caused an uproar in Hollywood and incited many Woody Allen fans to defend him on social media. Other celebrities, such as Lena Dunham and Tavi Gevinson, as well as Dylan's brother Ronan Farrow and mother, Mia Farrow, replied on social media by sharing their support for Dylan.
