Journalist Ronan Farrow is furious at a New York Magazine interview with Soon-Yi Previn, the wife of embattled film director and comedian Woody Allen.

In the interview published Sunday, Previn accused Farrow’s mother, actress Mia Farrow, of having “taken advantage of the #MeToo movement” to cast further aspersions on Allen, who has been accused of sexual abuse by daughter Ronan’s sister, Dylan Farrow.

Ronan Farrow, who was at the center of breaking the raft of sexual misconduct accusations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, tweeted, “…I am angry that New York Magazine would participate in this kind of hit job.”

He added, “As a journalist, I’m shocked by the lack of care for the facts, the refusal to include eyewitness testimony that would contradict falsehoods in this piece, and the failure to print my sister’s responses. Survivors of abuse deserve better.”

Previn’s remarks were her first comments in the ongoing saga of accusations and counter-accusations in the Allen-Farrow feud. She told New York Magazine that the allegations remain “so upsetting, so unjust.”

Daphne Merkin, who wrote the New York Magazine article, admits she has known Allen for over 40 years of friendship.
