Judd Apatow Responds To Diane Keaton's Support For Woody Allen
Since Woody Allen's daughter, Dylan Farrow, rehashed her sexual abuse allegations against him, the director has been suffering from the repercussions of it. Many actors have publicly separated themselves from Allen, including Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page, and Colin Firth.
Others have come in his defense, such as Alec Baldwin and, most recently, Diane Keaton.
Keaton's comments however have received backlash from another director, Judd Apatow, who also doesn't agree with Allen's alleged actions.
Apatow vs. Keaton
The The 40 Year-Old Virgin director addressed Keaton's comments on his Twitter account Monday, Jan. 29. Keaton was in a relationship with Allen for a brief time. Apatow made it clear that he was "disgusted" by how Allen treated his family, in particular his children.
Apatow also brought up Allen's affair with his now wife, Soon-Yi, who was his ex-wife Mia Farrow's adopted daughter. Allen was in a relationship with Mia Farrow when his affair with Soon-Yi began.
I see a man who wanted what he wanted and didn’t care that he was having an affair with a 19 year old when he was 54 who was also his daughter’s sister. He also took nude photos of this child who he had known since she was nine and left them out for his family to see. Narcissism. https://t.co/uhiTY5p7bh

Apatow elaborated that he feels Allen is "proud" for not having a relationship with his children.
After his estranged daughter's riveting interview with GMA's Robin Roberts, Allen spoke out against the allegations once more, declaring his innocence. Allen stated that Farrow suffered from the emotional trauma brought on by her mother and was "fed lies" she still believes.
After the interview and Allen's statements, Baldwin and Keaton came to Allen's defense, with Baldwin stating that Allen was receiving "unfair" treatment.
Woody Allen is my friend and I continue to believe him. It might be of interest to take a look at the 60 Minute interview from 1992 and see what you think. https://t.co/QVQIUxImB1 — Diane Keaton (@Diane_Keaton) January 29, 2018
Actress Kate Winslet, who at one point defended Allen, recently spoke about her "regrets" working with certain high-profile men in Hollywood.
Actress Mira Sorvino wrote an apology to Dylan Farrow for believing the media's portrayal of Allen rather than looking more into Farrow's allegations.
