Like mother, like son. On the same night that Mia Farrow grabbed the spotlight during the Golden Globes by throwing monstrous shade on ex Woody Allen after he received the Cecil B DeMille lifetime achievement award, her son Ronan Farrow joined in on the action.
While Mia joked that it was “time to grab some icecream & switch over to #GIRLS,” Ronan took a much more direct shot at his father.
“Missed the Woody Allen tribute,” wrote activist/lawyer and soon to be MSNBC host Ronan, 26, who is estranged from biological father Allen. “Did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7.”
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?

Allen was honored by longtime friend Diane Keaton during the Globes, as the notoriously publicity-shy director did not show up to accept his award in person. Ronan’s tweet referenced claims made in 1992 by Allen and Mia’s adopted daughter, then 7-year-old Dylan (now known as Malone), who said Allen touched her inappropriately.
A nasty court battle ensued and the case was eventually dropped. Allen and Farrow split in 1992 after 12 years together when Farrow discovered that the director was having an affair with her 19-year-old adopted daughter from another marriage, Soon-Yi Previn. Previn and Allen have been married since 1997.
Ronan’s tweet spurred tons of comments, including one from Danielle Johnsen, who wrote, “@RonanFarrow Wow. Not sure how your family handles this kind of stuff.” Another told Ronan that he’s her “favorite male human.”
@RonanFarrow Wow. Not sure how your family handles this kind of stuff. It's insane to think about it.

Most of the responses were in support of Farrow tweet, but one, from Antonio Vantaggiato, came out in support of Allen. “Sorry to hear @RonanFarrow’s rage,” he wrote, doing on to praise Allen as one of the greatest directors of all time.
