Pompeo took to Twitter Friday after a Washington Post editorial from Richard Morgan entitled "I read decades of Woody Allen's private notes. Seems a tad oxymoronic".

Yesterday, Farrow called out actresses Blake Lively and Cate Blanchett for working with Allen, despite being vocal opponents of sexual harassment and assault.

"It's obviously been a long and painful situation for the family, and I hope they find some resolution and peace".

In another op-ed for the Los Angeles Times in December, Farrow accused the media and the entertainment industry of ignoring Allen's alleged misconduct in the wake of the wider sexual abuse scandal surrounding dozens of prominent figures in Hollywood.

"You worked with my abuser", she tweeted at Lively.

To Allen apologists, Pompeo says that its very clear the man married someone who was in a daughter role, even if they aren't blood-related, and he knew and raised her during at least part of her childhood.

"You don't want it to lead to a witch-hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy in an office who winks at a woman is suddenly having to call a lawyer to defend himself", Allen told the BBC.

She also starred in several films produced by Weinstein's then company Miramax, including The Talented Mr. Ripley. Because the actor-musician recently made the decision to work with Allen, a man with multiple allegations of child abuse against him.

Director Greta Gerwig, fresh off a Golden Globe victory for her film, Lady Bird, didn't have anything definitive to say about her work with controversial director Woody Allen.

"I am ashamed I did this", she added. "I wouldn't know because I don't watch that bougie s-t".

Fans also took him to task for supporting Time's Up while he essentially allowed Janet Jackson to take the fall for his ripping her top off during their 2004 Super Bowl performance (something he's never apologized for, either).
