Barbara Walters Defends Woody Allen, But Her View On The Abuse Allegations Is Sure To Outrage Many!

| Filed under: TV NewsBarbara WaltersFilm FlickersSad SadWoody AllenFamily

barbara walters supports woody allen

WOW! We didn't think this would happen!

After Dylan Farrow penned an emotional open letter about the alleged molestation she suffered at the hands of her (then) step-father Woody Allen, it seems that it's all anyone can talk about!

While she's received a fair share of support from A LOT of people, Barbara Walters is not one of them!

On The View, the ladies were discussing the letter and Babs actually DEFENDED Woody, even going so far as to say that it's unfair to criticize Woody now!!

What the WHAT?!?!

Sherri Shepard spoke about the whole situation and had said something that Babs didn't really like.

She said:

"We've heard so many cases of people going, 'He was the most wonderful person in the world. I would have never thought he would've…[plus] many things that go on behind closed doors."

Which caused Barbara to get her claws out and defend her "personal friend," Woody!

Ch-ch-check out what she said in his defense (below)

What do U think?!?! Is she right? Or is she (wrongly) sympathizing with Woody?!

Either way, the real victim here is Dylan and the horror she had to go through as a child!

Stay strong, gurl!

  2. 2

    Barbara should ask herself if she would feel any different if Dylan was famous and Woody was not.

    When she fucks up she goes big.

  4. 4

    why everyone is assuming this is all true..???

    Please retire. Please put her out to pasture, or on an inter-tube with Woody out in the middle of the ocean

    Talk about misplaced loyalty! I expected better from Barbara Walters.

  7. 7

    She's only supporting him because they're both jews.

  8. 8

    She knows better. Like he's going to commit those atrocious perverted acts in front of her. Dylan is right 100 %. Maybe Barbara is angling for a interview , these people are just as guilty as that evil, twisted Woody Allen for speaking such BS. For a journalist she is not well informed and has not researched the history of the witnesses that have given statements.Shame!

    He sleeps with his son's sister every night, so why is it hard to believe he would molest another adopted child.

    Re: Sampson – She is supposed to be retiring, just cannot remember when,

    Walters is a child rape apologist and as much of an ignorant degenerate as Woody is. Every time this bimbo opens her phallus gobbler incredulity smelling of feces oozes out. Find a tall building Barbara……and leap from it in prime time. Your greatest work. You're no journalist….you're a sycophant and propagandist. An American liability.

  16. Herb says – reply to this


    Ever notice how people project onto others what they are doing themselves? Here we have Mia accusing Woody of molestation and voila now it turns out that Mia's own brother is a convicted molester.

  17. Gloria says – reply to this


    Dylan is a mentally confused person, how could it be otherwise growing up with such a nutty mother. I don't believe anything either of them says.

  18. Randi Mann says – reply to this


    The Old Jews Club,
    always stick together, she defended Roman Polanski as well, (another member)
    I hope first thing Rosie does when she gets back there is take Barbara and kick her sagging old ass, pull off that ridicules wig and throw her out onto the street

    There must be some of Frank's old buddies still around, you think one of them would put out a contract

  20. MoM says – reply to this


    Just wondering how Dylan and Mia support themselves these days? Wonder if they are running short of cash? You know Woody can't be prosecuted criminally now so money may be their driving motive for a civil suit.

  21. Kurt says – reply to this


    Of course.The child support payments must all have ended by now.Not to mention that Mia seems like a real vindictive bit ch. It must be killing her that Woody has a good marriage with Soonyi so she has to create drama.

  22. Mary says – reply to this


    Re: Randi Mann – So what does that make Mia and her strange brood? The immoral catholics club?

  23. Span on top says – reply to this


    When you consider how many 1000's of black men white women have put in prison with false rape allegations (many of whom being freed thanks to dna) … you have to keep an open mind. White females WILL LIE about sex abuse. Its proven through history. Maybe it happened or maybe it didnt. But I'm not taking some white chicks word for it without proof. NO WAY. Fool me once….

    One rich old Jew defending another.

  25. DT says – reply to this


    The only two people who know what happened in that upstairs closet and in bed are Dylan Farrow and Woody Allen. That said, it's been my experience that a grown woman outside of the statute of limitations has no reason to lie, and the impact of those allegations has seemingly tortured her growing up. Molestation is a tough thing to deal with for many and truly harrowing when the abused's word is not believed, or worse, believed and swept under the carpet, as if he/she did not matter. If Woody is guilty, there will be more children. He wouldn't be a one-timer.

  26. Dee says – reply to this


    My only question in this whole story, how old was Mia when she married Frank Sinatra? Hmmm…she (Mia) was running around with Andre Previn while he was still married to Dory. Broke that family up. Seems like dysfunctional runs in the whole family, both sides. I do believe Dylan, sad sad sad. Reason I believe, what does someone gain by saying what Dylan is saying?

  27. Charle says – reply to this


    Do not call her a filthy Jew! You racist punk! i do not agree with her but do not bring her religion into this. Disgusting person you are!

  28. Charle says – reply to this


    Gosh why are people being racist all of a sudden! Do not bring her religion into this. Just disgusting!

    I do not agree with her but whoever thinks it is right to start calling her names or mentioning her religion should be ashamed of yourselves!

  29. 29

    Sherri Shepherd better watch her mouth with Barbara Walters. Barbara can have her opinion, but I think Sherri is too outspoken for that show…………….she must want Whoopi's job

  31. Perez Dickhead says – reply to this


    "Either way, the real victim here is Dylan and the horror she had to go through as a child!"

    Seriously? Doesn't take much to get the villagers to pull out their pitchforks. And what evidence is there that what she thinks happened actually happened? Zero. Testimony of TWO nannies, who said there wasn't any time Dylan wasn't supervised during the day that it supposedly occurred, plus numerous psychologists' reports noting extreme inconsistencies in her recollections…

    The evidence skews strongly toward IT DIDN'T FUCKING HAPPEN. Okay, maybe it did — it is POSSIBLE. I don't pretend to know. But it seems UNLIKELY, given the evidence, and it is fucking grotesque how eager people are to wield pitchforks at the first sign that someone did something wrong.

  32. Dylan Said what? says – reply to this


    Dylan is an ACCUSER not a Victim. Unless and Until a jury of 12 people say Woody Allen is a child molester, He isn't one. period!!!

  33. Vysyons says – reply to this


    Barbara Walters your defense of Woody Allen and attack of Dylan Farrow is why many victims do not report…people believe the pedophile/rapist/molester is too good of a person to have done it. I know that in law people are supposed to presumed innocent until proven guilty, but when it comes to domestic and sexual violence when are the victims going to be presumed truthful until proven falsely? Sherri Shepard (who I usually see as a bubbly blonde black woman) made more sense than you ever could. Fire her for standing up to you and it will continue to tarnish your legacy. You've been making a fool of yourself for a few years now and defending someone on the grounds that you are friends with them is not only foolish but journalistically unbiased suicide. Barbara, it's time for you to take a minute to enjoy the view from a rocking chair at the retirement home.

  34. Kathy Whittaker says – reply to this


    Barbara reminds me of one of those mothers that defends her husband when finding out that her husband sexually assaulted her daughter. Unless she has FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE of what occurred she should have sat on the fence OR stand up for Dylan! Time for Babs to get the hell off the air …… shame on her!

  35. 35

    Why do you assume she is telling the truth and he is not? She certainly could have been coached by her crazy mother just as well.

    Re: Mad Dog – What a friggin' racist. I don't like to respond to people's comments by calling them names, but you are just a racist moron.

  39. Chris says – reply to this


    Allegations are unproven. Making Woody out to be guilty on the basis of a single allegation is unjust.

  40. Jane says – reply to this


    Re: MoM – Exactly. It's not like celebrities are never unjustly accused.

  41. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    Woody Allen raped me when I was 14…or at least I THINK it was Woody Allen…regardless, some BUTT-UGLY BIG-NOSED dude did the dirty on me, and in the dark, it coulda been this Allen dude…All I remember is that he smelled like a deli ! ;)

    Sheri Sheppard is FAT and UGLY and SMELLS and I wish she too would go away…..her kid is dumb, too ….

    my co-worker's sister-in-law makes $68 every hour on the laptop . She has been without a job for 8 months but last month her paycheck was $16610 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Look At This,,,,,,,,, WWW.dub30.ℂOM

  44. Cindy says – reply to this


    Shame on her.

  45. 45

    Why is anyone shocked? This is the same woman who said that Scientology had a good educational system! Same woman who accused Corey Feldman of "damaging an entire industry," when he came out with story of molestation. The View was once a good show, but Barbara is far too concerned with her industry connections/relationships with Hollywood elites to be considered objective in any way.

  46. 46

    ”Either way, the real victim here is Dylan and the horror she had to go through as a child!”
    You seem so sure of yourself.
    We don't know who the real victim is yet, and we won't know until there is a trial and justice be made.

  47. red wine says – reply to this


    Would someone please tell that old wrinkly hag that people don't care about her thoughts! She might think she's doing that old pedophile a favor, but eventually the truth will come out and she will look even more pathetic. I hate that old smelly cow.

  48. 48

    All asswhole's stick together and clearly Barbara Walters and Woody Allen r cut from the same cloth.

    Retire you ignorant self-serving woman! Serial killers, rapists and paedophiles have friends. Friendship does not negate condemning criminal behaviour!!! Good on you Perez!1

    Re: purplesprings – She is an irrelavant woman who was a very bad mother. Get rid of her!!

    Re: Be-Atch – Are you the same troll obsessed with denigrating Demi Moore constantly? Seems you are also a supporter of paedophiles and ignorant women who should know better!

    Re: sc – Anybody ever hear that in America it's "innocent until proven guilty"??? This case was thrown out of court for lack of evidence long ago. Do you know what happened, were you there? Why are you so sure who is guilty? Is it any of your business?

  54. Delmar says – reply to this


    This story about Woody has been instigated by Mia Farrow who became bitter and twisted because woody married her adopted daughter. Would Soon-Yi Previn have married Woody if the accusations about him were true? I don't think so… and she has stuck by him through everything

  55. katherine long says – reply to this


    if this happened to dylan many many years ago, and to be brought up now because of woody's award,to me, smells of meaness and revenge–i am disappointed in mia's parenting–the kids should be taught to love their father and to accept him and forgive him and not to turn against him—and for mia to hint that frank sinatra might be her son's father, not woody!!!!–what does that tell you?

  56. katherine says – reply to this


    i am not outraged by barbara walter's comments on the view re woody–i totally agree with her—look at the facts

    I miss the days when Barbara Walters wasn't so afraid of offending her "dear friends" and took the tough stands or made the choice to stay out of it.
