Dylan Farrow Responds to Woody Allen’s Memoirs Being Dropped, And Stephen King Has Thoughts

March 9, 2020 / Posted by:

Last week Hachette Book Group announced they were publishing Woody Allen’s memoirs in April. Woody’s daughter/accuser, Dylan Farrow, and son, perv hunter Ronan Farrow, both tweeted their frustration. Ronan, who published his recent book Catch and Kill with Hachette, immediately dropped them as his publisher. Later in the week, 75 employees of Hachette staged a walkout in protest of the deal. And, guess what? It actually worked!

On Friday, after a week of bad press, Hachette released a statement announcing that, despite taking their “relationships with authors very seriously” (“Um, dooo you, though?” -Ronan Farrow), they’d made the “difficult” decision to drop Woody’s book. After the cancellation, Dylan hopped back on Twitter to express her gratitude.

Here’s what Dylan tweeted:

 

Now that Hachette has dropped Woody’s “Apropos of Nothing” (I prefer Jessica Simpson’s memoir title, “Open Book”), all rights will go back to the author. The company will definitely lose some precious monies, but, so far, no word on how much.

But enough relevant details! I wanna know what Stephen King thinks, despite having less than zero involvement! Luckily, this pressing question was answered in a series of tweets. More smart decisions…

 

This isn’t the first time this year Stephen’s tweets have stirred up controversy. In January, he shared his equally pertinent thoughts on the Oscars being so white:

 

Later he attempted to clarify his remarks in a Washington Post op-ed, conceding that awards were “rigged in favor of the white folks”, and his perspective was “white, male, old, and rich”. You don’t say?

So yeah, get ready for another King-penned defense after this recent batch of hot takes. “Guys, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a ridiculously wealthy white dude. But IF YOU THINK WOODY’S A PEDOPHILE…”
