The Peacock is angry!!!
Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC show hasn’t even aired yet but we hear he’s already angered his new network!
As we reported earlier, the supposed son of Woody Allen was live tweeting the Golden Globes on Sunday night. The award show, which was being broadcast on NBC, featured a tribute to Ronan’s legendary director father, who was this year's recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award.
In case you were wondering what Ronan and Woody’s relationship was like, the 26-year-old cleared up any confusion with this tweet:
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?

There’s been no word from Woody after Ronan’s harsh remarks, but NBC sure is calling foul! Sources say the network’s top brass was LIVID to see what their newest hire had to say on Twitter!
An insider recently explained why execs are so bent out of shape, saying:
"The network has very strict policies on what their talent/employees are able to post on Twitter and Facebook. No-one has said anything directly to Ronan yet about it, but he will certainly be reminded about it now that he is an employee of the network. It just places the network in a terrible position of having to defend airing the Golden Globes, which was a huge ratings bonanza.”
Well, wait a minute…
We get why NBC might be a little weary to see Ronan criminally accusing the same man that the Golden Globes is honoring. But if it’s ratings they’re worried about, then what’s the problem?!
If you want people to tune in to Ronan’s new show, THIS is exactly how to do it! Let your host speak his mind freely and the audience will follow!
Silence him and suddenly you have just another boring cable news show that NO ONE is going to want to watch!
Ronan Farrow has already proven himself to be intelligent, quick-witted, and quite frankly handsome as all hell! And with this riveting little quip, he certainly has us interested in watching his new show when it debuts later this month!
