Woody Allen May Respond To Dylan Farrow In New York Times Op-Ed


New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan revealed Wednesday that the newspaper may run a response from Woody Allen to Dylan Farrow's charges of sexual abuse.

Sullivan recounted her conversation with Andrew Rosenthal, the editor of newspaper's editorial page, in a post Wednesday. He told her, "They asked and we said, ‘Yes, send it in.'"

Allen's daughter, Dylan Farrow, publicly spoke out about the allegations against Allen — which were first raised more than 20 years ago — in an open letter published by The Times over the weekend. Allen has denied them, and the accusations have sparked fresh debate, with two of Allen and Mia Farrow's other children speaking out.

Sullivan said Wednesday that whether Allen's response gets published will depend on the editing process, according to Rosenthal, but that a piece could run "within the next few days."
