Justin Timberlake fired off a stupid question on Twitter on Tuesday and probably wasn’t expecting the response he got from Dylan Farrow, People reports.

“Random question: Can someone please explain the saying, ‘You just want your cake and to eat it to.’ What else am I about to do with a cake?” Timberlake asked.

First off, Timberlake got the saying wrong, but Farrow didn’t let that keep her from blasting the singer for joining the Time’s Up movement after starring in her adoptive father Woody Allen’s most recent film “Wonder Wheel.”

“The saying means, for example, you can’t support #TIMESUP and praise sexual predators at the same time,” Farrow replied. “You can’t retain your credibility as an activist (i.e. – retain the cake) and, at the same time, praise a sexual predator (i.e. – eating the cake).”

Timberlake was one of several Hollywood stars, including James Franco, to receive criticism for wearing a Time’s Up pin at the Golden Globes a few weeks ago.

Allen has faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct over the years, including those from Farrow who claimed that he sexually assaulted her when she was just seven years old. Farrow has started speaking out against her adoptive father again now that the sexual misconduct issue plaguing Hollywood is under the microscope. Still, Allen denies the allegations and claims that her mother, Mia Farrow coached her into making the claims against him.

“When this claim was first made more than 25 years ago, it was thoroughly investigated by both the Child Sexual Abuse Clinic of the Yale-New Haven Hospital and New York State Child Welfare. They both did so for many months and independently concluded that no molestation had ever taken place,” the director said in a statement. “Instead, they found it likely a vulnerable child had been coached to tell the story by her angry mother during a contentious breakup.”
